Drake Surpasses The Beatles For Second Most Top-10 Billboard Hot 100 Songs

It took The Beatles just under 32 years to get 34 songs in the Top 10 on the Billboard charts but Drake has just tied them.

Chris Brown’s song “No Guidance” featuring Drake debuted at No. 9, which makes it the Canadian rapper’s 34th top-10 song. The Beatles and Drake now share the No. 2 spot, with Madonna leading with 38 tracks.

Unlike the 31 years and 11 months it took The Beatles and the 16 years and seven months for Madonna to reach this record, Drake has managed to pull this off in under 10 years, reports Complex.

Although it is worth noting that the Beatles did reach 32 hits in six years and four months before breaking up. It then took another 24 years to add the final two hits.

In the days since his collab with Brown, Drake launched a brand new single “Money In The Grave” featuring Rick Ross which debuted at number seven, marking his 35th top 10 hit.

With the help of his new track, Drake has surpassed The Beatles taking second place.

Rihanna and Michael Jackson follow behind The Beatles in fourth and fifth place, respectively.

This isn’t Drake’s only Billboard record though, he has 96 top-40 Hot 100 hits – a safe lead on Lil Wayne and Elvis, who sit at 81 each.
