Drake has passed Lil Wayne for the most Hot 100 hits by a solo artist, Billboard reports. The move comes off the back of More Life, which saw all 22 tracks from the "playlist project" chart on the Hot 100 dated April 8. This pushes Drake's total number of charted titles to 154. Lil Wayne was previously ahead with 135 singles, a position he had held since October 2012 when he passed Elvis Presley.

In addition to breaking the record for career total singles, Drake's 24 songs on the latest Hot 100 also breaks his own record for the most simultaneous hits on the chart. His appearances on Gucci Mane's "Both" and "No Frauds" with Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, plus the entirety of More Life, represent the two dozen tracks making up nearly a quarter of the chart.
