Drake Officially Snags His 100th Billboard Hot 100 Song

Drake has his own hot 100.

The hip-hop titan debuts eight songs on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Oct. 10), upping him from 92 to a milestone 100 appearances, dating to his arrival with the No. 2-peaking "Best I Ever Had" in 2009. This week's new entries are all from What a Time to Be Alive, his new mixtape album with Future that debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Meanwhile, Drake's stand-alone single "Hotline Bling" blasts 9-4 on the Hot 100. Of Drake's 100 Hot 100 charted titles, 14 have hit the top 10, with one reaching No. 1: Rihanna's "What's My Name?," featuring Drake, led the Nov. 20, 2010 list.

Drake joins an extremely select group of acts that have totaled at least 100 Hot 100 hits, dating to the chart's Aug. 4, 1958 inception. Here is an updated count of the acts with the most Hot 100 visits:

207, Glee Cast
127, Lil Wayne

108, Elvis Presley (Notably, Presley's career predated the Hot 100 by two years. He arrived with the first of his smashes, including "Heartbreak Hotel," "Don't Be Cruel" and "Hound Dog," in 1956, two years before the Hot 100's launch.)
100, Drake
91, James Brown
83, Jay Z
75, Ray Charles
73, Chris Brown
73, Aretha Franklin
71, The Beatles

Between his newly-arriving titles and five other songs ("Hotline Bling"; "Back to Back"; "Right Hand"; Future's "Where Ya At"; and Meek Mill's "R.I.C.O.," the latter two featuring Drake), Drake claims 13 spots on the Hot 100 this week. The sum ties for the second-best simultaneous total. He shares the record, 14, with the Beatles. The Fab Four boasted 14 titles on the April 11, 1964 Hot 100 and Drake tied the mark with 14 on the March 7, 2015 chart, a week after his other surprise 2015 album, If You're Reading This It's Too Late, also began at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Drake will be performing at the 2015 Austin City Limits festival
