NEWS: Drake Ties The Beatles' Record Of 14 Simultaneous Billboard Hot 100 Hits

Drake Ties The Beatles' Record Of 14 Simultaneous Billboard Hot 100 Hits

In addition to having every song from "If You're Reading This It's Too Late" on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Drake has now tied the record for most songs simultaneously on the Hot 100. 

In recent months, The Beatles have popped up in hip-hop discussions thanks to Migos and Kanye West, but Drake is perhaps the only rapper who's currently competing with their run of dominance in the mid-to-late 1960s. In the wake of releasing If You're Reading This It's Too Late, he's already gotten each of the tape's 21 tracks onto Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and now he's tied the Fab Four's record for most simultaneous appearances on the Hot 100, with fourteen songs currently charting. 
Drizzy previously came close to this tally in October 2013, when 12 Nothing Was The Same Tracks hit the chart, but he now ties a record that's stood since 1964. Last October, he topped another Beatles record when he notched his 72nd career entry in the Hot 100. Check out his current chart positions below:
No. 16, “Only,” Nicki Minaj featuring Drake, Lil Wayne & Chris Brown
No. 17, “Truffle Butter,” Minaj featuring Drake & Lil Wayne
No. 26, “Energy”
No. 49, “Tuesday,” iLoveMakonnen featuring Drake
No. 52, “Legend”
No. 58, “10 Bands”
No. 68, “Blessings,” Big Sean featuring Drake
No. 70, “Know Yourself” (debut)
No. 81, “No Tellin’ ” (debut)
No. 82, “Preach,” featuring PartyNextDoor
No. 83, “6 God” (debut)
No. 84, “Used To,” featuring Lil Wayne
No. 95, “Now & Forever” (debut)
No. 97, “6 Man” (debut)
