Drake scored his ninth No. 1 Billboard 200 album with Care Package, a compilation of previously unreleased songs. According to Billboard, Drake has once again made chart history by becoming the first soloist — and only the second act overall — with at least 200 appearances on the Billboard Hot 100.
With the addition of six songs from the recently released Care Package, his total comes to 203 entries in just over a decade, which kicked off in 2009 with “Best I Ever Had.” The Glee Cast is the only act to accumulate more with 207.
The six out of the 17 songs from Care Package that pushed Drake to the new milestone are “Trust Issues” (No. 58), “How About Now” (No. 60), “The Motion” (No. 61), “Dreams Money Can Buy” (No. 68), “Club Paradise” (No. 85) and “Days in the East” (No. 95).
Other rappers that have come close to Drake’s Hot 100 record include Lil Wayne, who has 163 entries, Nicki Minaj who has 103, and JAY-Z, who has 100.
