Drake Equals Elvis Presley for Fourth-Most Hot 100 Top 10s Among Solo Males

Drake notches his 25th top 10 as "Nice for What" launches at No. 1.

As Drake‘s “Nice for What” rockets onto the Billboard Hot 100 (dated April 21) at No. 1, the  6 God ties the King of Rock and Roll in the race for the most top 10s among solo males in the chart’s history.

The track marks Drake’s 25th Hot 100 top 10, tying him with Elvis Presley for the fourth-most among male soloists. (Presley’s run of hits predated the Hot 100’s origin by two years.)


Here’s an updated count of the solo males with the most Hot 100 top 10s, dating to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, inception.

Notably, Paul McCartney made even more trips to the top 10 as a member of The Beatles, who earned 34, a sum second only to Madonna’s 38; Rihanna ranks third with 31 top 10s, followed by Michael Jackson‘s 29. Similarly, the Jackson 5/Jacksons, of which Michael Jackson was a member, totaled 11 top 10s as a group.

Beyond top 10s, Drake extends his record for the most overall Hot 100 entries among solo acts to 162.
