Drake currently claims seven of the top 10 spots on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, which smashes the Beatle’s record of five songs in the Top 10. However, The Wrap notes that the way music is delivered and consumed in 2018 is very different than 1964, and back then, during peak Beatlemania, the band of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr at one point could claim all five of the Top 5 songs, with “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Twist and Shout,” “She Loves You,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Please Please Me.”

Here are the Drake songs currently in the Top 10, according to The Wrap:

1. “Nice for What”
2. “Nonstop”
4. “God’s Plan”
6. “In My Feelings”
7. “I’m Upset”
8. “Emotionless”
9. “Don’t Matter to Me” (featuring Michael Jackson)

Drake’s remarkable milestone marks 31 career Top 10s, has the most ever for a male solo artist, besting Michael Jackson. He also has 27 songs overall on the July 14 chart, which breaks his own record for the most simultaneously charted titles.

Over the course of Drake’s career, he has had 186 songs on the Hot 100 list.
