Another One: Drake Beats The Beatles’ Billboard Song Chart Record
Thanks to Drake’s newest top ten hit, he’s beaten a long-standing record held by the legendary Fab Four.
Fans can hear the 6 God on Bad Bunny’s latest single “MIA,” which according to Billboard is in the top 5 on their coveted Hot 100 songs chart. The site reveals that due to the song’s debut, Drake now holds the record for the most Hot 100 top 10 songs in a single year, surpassing The Beatles’ record. Drake has had 12 songs in the top 10 in 2018.
“Of his 32 Hot 100 top 10s, Drake posts his historic 12th of 2018,” the site reads. “He passes The Beatles’ 11 in their breakout year, 1964. That makes another single-year record for Drake, who, with a 29th week at No. 1 this year, passed Usher for the most time on top in any January-December span.”
This is not Drake’s first history-making milestone in music this year. In September, he broke Usher’s record when he became the artist with the longest-reigning number one artist in a single year. He has had three consecutive songs at number one, and his hit “In My Feelings” was number one for 10 weeks when the record was broken.
“Drake becomes the first soloist, and second act overall, after Boyz II Men, with three songs that have topped the Hot 100 for at least 10 weeks each,” wrote Billboard.
