As Post Malone celebrates his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (dated May 12) as well as the biggest streaming week ever for an album, the rapper/singer concurrently breaks the record for the most simultaneous top 20 entries on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.

Post Malone — whose sophomore effort beerbongs & bentleys opened with 461,000 equivalent album units, according to Nielsen Music — lands nine songs in the top 20 of the Hot 100, shattering the previous record of six, which was shared by The Beatles and J. Cole. The Beatles held the record for 54 years, as they charted six songs in the top 20 on charts dated April 11 and April 18, 1964. J. Cole tied the mark just last week (on the chart dated May 5), fueled by the No. 1 Billboard 200 bow of his latest album, KOD.


Malone concurrently breaks the record for the most simultaneous top 40 Hot 100 hits: 14. A week ago, J. Cole charted 10 songs in the region, passing the prior high of nine notched each by Cardi B, Drake and Kendrick Lamar.

All 18 tracks from beerbongs & bentleys grace the Hot 100, led by “Psycho,” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, at No. 2. “Better Now” debuts at No. 7 and Malone’s former eight-week No. 1 “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage, rebounds 32-8, making him the 18th act in the Hot 100’s 59-year history with at least three simultaneous top 10s.

“Better Now” earns Post Malone his third top 10 debut, following “Psycho” and “Rockstar,” which both bowed at No. 2.

Here’s a look at all of 18 of Post Malone’s songs on the new, May 12-dated Hot 100. (All are debuts, except where noted.)

With 18 total tracks currently on the Hot 100, Malone becomes just the third act to tally at least that many songs on the chart at once. Drake holds the record for the most simultaneous entries with 24, and has logged at least 18 tracks on the Hot 100 in four distinct weeks. The Weeknd landed 18 tracks on the Hot 100 in December 2016 as his album Starboy started atop the Billboard 200.
