Lil Wayne Beats Elvis Presley’s Billboard Chart Record
NEW YORK (AP) – Lil Wayne is not only making rap history, he’s making rock ‘n roll history: the rapper has surpassed Elvis Presley as the male with the most entries on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.
Lil Wayne now has 109 songs on that chart with Thursday’s debut of Game‘s song “Celebration,” where he is a guest alongside Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa. Of his 109 charted songs, only 42 are led by Lil Wayne; 67 are songs where he is the featured act.
Thursday is the rapper’s 30th birthday.
Presley totaled 108 songs on the Hot 100 since it launched in 1958. Presley’s career kicked off before that and several of his songs – like “Heartbreak Hotel” – could not be included in his total number.
The “Glee” cast has the most Hot 100 entries with 204.
