Beatles-lovers, earmuffs.

Because Drake has just achieved one of greatest feats of his career, and has clocked in more top 10 songs in Billboard’s Hot 100’s than the Fab Four.

Yup, coming out at #7 for this week of Billboard’s Hot 100’s, Drake’s new song “Money In The Grave,” featuring Rick Ross, is Drizzy’s 35th song to make the Top 10, sliding passed The Beatles’ 34.

Drake released the song, as promised, after the Toronto Raptors historic championship win.

And perhaps most impressive? This means that Drake officially has the second-most Top 10 songs of any other artist since the Hot 100 began six decades ago, bumping The Beatles down to #3.

Madonna sits in the #1 seat, with 38.

Here’s the full top 10 as it stands today:

  1. Madonna, 38
  2. Drake, 35
  3. The Beatles, 34
  4. Rihanna, 31
  5. Michael Jackson, 30
  6. Mariah Carey, 28
  7. Stevie Wonder, 28
  8. Janet Jackson, 27
  9. Elton John, 27
  10. Elvis Presley, 25

According to Billboard, Drake achieved his first top 10 song back in 2009, with “Best I Ever Had,” meaning that the achievement has taken him just under a decade. It took Madonna over 18 years to get 35.

The Beatles weren’t even a band for a full ten years, but that’s an argument for another day.

And don’t worry, Beatles fans. You can rest your mind at ease that John, Paul, George, and Ringo still have a recorded 20 Number 1 hits, over Drake’s 6.

But who knows when Drake will catch up to that one too.

P.S. Happy Global Beatles Day.
