Lil Wayne equals Elvis Presley's Billboard Hot 100 Record

Published

on

American rapper, Lil Wayne  now enjoys a feat previously fit for only a King.  As he debuts as a guest with 2 Chainz on Juicy J’s “Bandz a Make Her Dance,” on the Billboard Hot 100’s top debut at No. 71, the rapper ties Elvis Presley for the most Hot 100 appearances – 108 – among men. The pair trails only the “Glee” cast’s 204 visits for the most among all acts since the chart launched the week of August  4, 1958. Among solo males, Lil Wayne and Presley rank above James Brown, who’s third with 91 Hot 100 hits. Ray Charles places fourth with 74 entries, followed by Elton John (67). Presley’s Hot 100 span encompasses the chart’s 1958 inception through 2003 (45 years and two months), when “Rubberneckin’ ” peaked at No. 94. Lil Wayne has matched Presley’s total over 13 years, two months and three weeks, having first appeared the week of July 10, 1999. Two caveats, however, to Lil Wayne having equaled the iconic King of Rock & Roll’s achievement: Presley’s career, and some of his signature hits, like “Heartbreak Hotel,” “Don’t Be Cruel” and “Hound Dog,” predated the Hot 100’s inception. As Presley placed 31 titles on pre-Hot 100 Billboard airplay/sales/jukebox charts, according to Joel Whitburn’s “Top Pop Singles” reference book, he likely would’ve sent approximately that many more songs onto the Hot 100 had it existed when he arrived.]]>
