It's a strange thing to report, but everyone's favorite cough-syrup-swigging rapper has ousted the King on the Hot 100 charts. That's right—Lil Wayne has officially outdone Elvis Presley by having more singles on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
Thanks to the song by Game, "Celebration," on which Lil Wayne raps, Lil Wayne can now claim that he has had over 100 songs on the chart—this is number 109. Presley registered an impressive 108 songs on the chart between 1958 and 2003.
Even sadder news is that the group who has the most singles on the chart is the cast of Glee, who have entered 204 songs. Wayne holds the record for single-artist though, thanks to his collection of collaborations with other artists.
Interestingly, though, only 42 of the 109 songs are solo records—the other 67 are other artists' songs. Those other artist include Jay Sean, Destiny's Child, and Birdman. He made his debut on the chart on July 10, 1999, but didn't hit number one until 2008, with the song "Lollipop." His only other number one song was 2009's "Down," which is actually Jay Sean's song.
Presley is credited as the lead artist on all of his 108 songs, so Wayne may have some catching up to do if we're splitting hairs. Furthermore, Presley had three songs released before the Hot 100 existed.
