It’s official! Lil Wayne is the king of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The Young Money honcho broke Elvis Presley‘s long-standing record of having the most chart entries than any other male artist.
Weezy can thank rapper Game for his latest chart achievement. It was his song ‘Celebration’ (featuring Wayne, Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa), which entered at No. 82 this week on the tally, that help him break the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s record. Wayne now has 109 songs entries to his credit over Presley’s 108 visits on the chart. Last week, Wayne tied Presley with the entry of Juicy J’s strip-club banger ‘Bandz a Make Her Dance.’
Of Wayne’s 109 charted tunes, only 42 are leads while 67 are guest features. The rapper joins a list of male artists with multiple chart entries to their credit including James Brown (91 entries), Ray Charles (74 entries) and Elton John (67 entries).
However, the ‘Glee‘ cast is the only music act with more Hot 100 hits than Wayne or Presley, having racked up 204 entries since its 2009 debut.
Wayne is also celebrating another big milestone in his life — today (Sept. 27) is his 30th birthday. It’s hard to imagine with all the success he’s having with YMCMB that he’s still a young dude.
Congratulations to Lil Wayne and we wish him the best as he celebrates the big 3-0.
