Drake breaks the record for most Top 10 songs on the Hot 100
Drake has officially broken the record for most Top 10 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The OVO boss’ new collaborations with DJ Khaled — “Popstar” and “Greece” — debuted at No. 3 and No. 8 this week, marking Drizzy’s 39th and 40th songs to make it within the chart’s Top 10.
The feat launches Drake past the chart’s previous tied record-holder — Madonna — who has 38 Top 10 hits. Runners-up behind the Scorpion rapper include The Beatles, Rihanna, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Stevie Wonder, Janet Jackson, Elton John and Lil Wayne — who ties with Elvis Presley and Taylor Swift at 25 songs. Drake also holds the Hot 100 chart’s record for most entries of all time.
With the successful debuts of “Greece” and “Popstar,” Khaled has clenched his fifth and sixth Top 10 songs. Speaking with Zane Lowe last week, the mega-producer revealed that he and Drake recorded the latter track soon after his son, Alealam, was born.
“When ‘Popstar’ was created, I went to Toronto and my son was born,” Khaled told Lowe. “My son was born and I flew straight in Toronto right after my son was born in the same date. You know what I mean? It was something special to me, you know what I mean? To be the pop star. We been the pop stars. I mean, we pack all the arenas, pack all the stadiums and the people. We represent the culture to the highest level.”
“… When I was talking to Drake [about the song]… I was like, ‘I want to hit him with a knockout,’” he added. “That’s what I asked him. I said, ‘I want to hit him with a knockout.’”
“Definitely, this is the most excited I’ve been about an album in a long time,” Drake previously said about the project to Diddy. “A lot of little stuff has been trickling out, but all the stuff on the album is fresh, it’s brand new and I’m excited. This is probably the most music I’ve ever been sitting on. I’m hyped.”
