Chart Check: Drake Is Now the Only Artist in History To Have 200 Placements on Hot 100

Drake has proven himself an unstoppable force on both the Hot 100 and Billboard 200.

At just 32-years-old, the Grammy winner has broken several of the chart’s longstanding records thanks to the high powered streaming of his leading efforts as well as boosting the sales of songs he has been featured on.  Now – as he celebrates the arrival of his latest chart-topping album, ‘Care Package’ (click here to read more) – Drizzy’s been greeted with news that he’s extended his reign as the solo artist with the most appearances on the Hot 100.

With the debut of six tracks from ‘Package’ on this week’s main singles chart, the 6 God has placed a whopping 203 entries on the tally (in just 10 years).  Billboard reports:

“[Drake] makes history by becoming the first soloist, and just the second act overall, with at least 200 visits to the Billboard Hot 100 songs survey. In the 61-year history of the Hot 100, which blends streaming, airplay and sales data, only the Glee Cast has accumulated more entries: 207.”

As we extend our congratulations to Drake, look inside to see who joins him on this week’s TGJ Chart Check:  Hot 100 edition.
