Drake Now Has The Most Billboard Hot 100 Hits By Solo Artist

This week, Drake ties a historic mark, as he logs his 132nd career Hot 100 entry, as Gucci Mane’s “Both,” on which Drake is featured, debuts at No. 41. With the bow, Drake ties Lil Wayne for the most Hot 100 appearances among soloists in the chart’s 58-year history.

Among all acts, only the Glee Cast boasts more Hot 100 entries than Drake and Lil Wayne: 207. (Billed as the Glee Cast on its releases, the act was a rotating collective with certain members present, although not singing on every song, throughout the show’s six-season run on Fox in 2009-15.)

Here is an updated count of the acts with the most charted Hot 100 entries dating to the ranking’s Aug. 4, 1958, inception (though the chart dated Jan. 7, 2017):
