In The Know and Complex News have come together to bring you the latest news in hip hop music and culture.
“Popstar” and “Greece” are the rapper’s 39th and 40th Hot 100 top 10s. Madonna was the previous record holder with 38 career top 10s, who beat the Beatles’ 34 top 10s in 2002 with the release of “Die Another Day.” Drake’s first Hot 100 top 10 was in 2009 when he came out with “Best I Ever Had” which peaked at No. 2.
Madonna, however, still holds the crown for Hot 100 top 10 in lead roles. Due to the collaborative nature of hip-hop, Drake is the lead for 25 of his top 10 singles and a feature for the other 15 songs.
Drake also broke the record for most career Hot 100 entries with 224 songs and the most entries for top 40 hits with 113 songs.
