Drake Scores His 100th Billboard Hot 100 Hit

This week Drake and Future’s  joint mixtape ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Due to the success of the mixtape, Drake has now scored his 100th Billboard Hot 100 hit.
Eight songs from ‘What A Time To Be Alive’ made their debut on the Billboard Hot 100 this week giving Drake a total of 100 entries. He is one of only four acts to achieve the honor of having 100 or more Hot 100 appearances. Additionally, “Hotline Bling” has continued to climb the Hot 100 dramatically and has now taken the #4 spot.

According to Billboard:

“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.”

Check out the list of acts with the most 100 appearances below.
