Congratulations to Drake, a man with a Beatles tattoo celebrating his own success, for becoming the artist with the most top five singles in Billboard chart history. Drake, who has spent the summer jetting around the globe and reuniting Young Money, achieved the milestone this week with "Staying Alive," his collaboration with DJ Khaled and featuring Lil Baby. The song, which interpolates the Bee Gees' song of the same name, debuted at #5 on the Hot 100 and became Drake's 30th career top five song, surpassing The Beatles who tapped out with 29.

Of course, students of the Drake-Beatles shared universe will recall when he rapped "I got more slaps than The Beatles" on Meek Milll's "Going Bad." That came after he broke a separate chart record held by the Fab Four until 2018, for the most Hot 100 top 10s in a calendar year.
