Drake is literally the man in this music business right now. Love him or hate him – his star status is undeniable.
8 new songs from WATTBA (What a Time to Be Alive – his collaboration with rapper Future) have debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.
That brings his number of overall chart appearances to 100. That’s a feat in itself and you have to give it up to the Canadian actor and rapper/singer.
And that’s not all – he’s done all this in a little over 5 years, first appearing on the Billboard charts in 2009 with “Best I Ever Had.”
Want some perspective on all this? It’s a select group of people that have achieved this status. And Elvis Presley only has 108 Hot 100 appearances.
What’s more is that Lil Wayne – long time label-mate of Drake – is also in that club with 127 chart appearances. That’s some serious music clout for Young Money/Cash Money. They’re behemoths in this rap game.
