nother one. Drake’s two latest hits in collaboration with DJ Khaled have pushed his tally of U.S. Top 10 hits to 40 and his Hot 100 hits to 224. Prior to the release of latest tracks “Popstar” and “Greece”, Drake and Madonna were tied at the top of that list, each having 38 songs apiece that had made the Top 10. Drake is now in the lead with 40 songs that have made the Top 10 Billboard Hot 100 Hits.

Side note: the chart dates back to 1958, so it’s safe to say Drake has truly made a mark on the music world since 2009 when “Best I Ever Had” reached No 2. It only took him three short years to break the list since his first album was released in 2006. So yeah, in just over 10 years, Drake now stands alone with 40 songs that have cracked the Top 10. “Popstar” and “Greece” will be the No. 3 and No. 4 streaming songs on the Aug. 1 chart, with 28.4 million and 22.1 million respective streams. Two words: Mic. Drop.

We Haven’t even Talked about sales yet

Let’s talk about digital sales. The latest tracks arrive at Nos. 1 and 7 with a respective 15,000 and 9,000 sold since the release on July 17. The tracks also drew 13.1 million and 3.5 million in respective radio airplay audiences in the tracking week. Sooo yeah, if you haven’t heard them yet, you should probably pop some headphones in and have yourself a listen.

What does it mean for DJ Khaled?

We the Best CEO, also known as Khaled, has evolved into one of the leading hip-hop artists in history. Nurturing relationships with hitmakers like Drake, Rhianna and Future, it’s no surprise that each track is an ABSOLUTE banger, every time. The release of his latest tracks with Drake have DJ Khaled collecting his fifth and sixth Hot 100 top 10s. If you’re familiar with the new hits, it really is a no brainer that they’ve helped Drake pile onto his already existing records of most career songs in the Hot 100.
