Drake breaks Billboard’s most top 10 singles record

World renowned superstar Drake has broken a Billboard chart record.

The ‘Hotline Bling’ has broken the record for the most top 10 singles in the history of the Billboard chart, overtaking the previous record-holder Madonna.

The Canadian rapper and singer scored his 39th and 40th top 10 hits on this week’s countdown, as the vocalist on DJ Khaled’s singles Popstar and Greece.

The feat comes just 11 years after his first appearance in the top 10, with his breakthrough hit, Best I Ever Had.

As reported by BBC, Madonna had held the record since 2008, after surpassing The Beatles’ tally. The British band clocked up 34 top 10 hits between 1962’s Love Me Do and 1995’s Free As A Bird – which featured recovered vocals from the late John Lennon.

Madonna tied the Beatles’ record with Don’t Tell Me, her 34th top 10, in February 2001; and overtook them with the Bond theme Die Another Day the following year.

Her most recent appearance in the US chart came in 2012, with Give Me All Your Luvin, which she performed at the Super Bowl half-time concert.

The star still holds the record for the most top 10 singles as a lead artist. She’s credited as the main performer on all 38 of her appearances in the top 10.

Drake, however, can only claim the lead role on 25 of his entries, appearing as a featured vocalist on the other 15. That’s partly due to the collaborative nature of hip-hop, but it’s also evidence of the star’s prodigious work-rate.

In addition to his top 10 singles, he also holds the record for the most entries on the Hot 100 chart (224) and top 40 hits (113).
