Drake & Lil Wayne Now Tied For Billboard Hot 100 Record

On Tuesday, Billboard announced the Toronto rapper had earned his 132nd Hot 100 hit—tying Lil Wayne’s record for the most Hot 100 appearances by a solo artist. Drake achieved this with his feature on Gucci Mane’s “Both” track. The song, which is on Guwop’s The ReturnOf East Atlanta Santa mixtape, just debuted at No. 41 on the chart. Billboard reports the only act that has surpassed Drake and Lil Wayne’s numbers is the cast of Glee, which has a total of 207 Hot 100 entries under its belt; however, judging by Drizzy’s recent momentum, we wouldn’t be surprised if he took the top spot one day.

 

The achievement is the latest in a long list of milestones Drake has reached this year. His fourth studio album, Views, was the first album to rack up more than a billion streams on Apple Music and the first to earn 1 billion plays on Spotify. It also dominated the Billboard 200 charts for 13 non-consecutive weeks and was recently certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA.

 

Let’s see if he can reach the same success with his upcoming More Life project, set to drop in March of 2017.
