Lil Wayne tops Elvis Presley's Billboard Hot 100 chart record

Thursday, September 27, 2012

The king has been overthrown - at least when it comes to being the male artist with the most entries on Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

The top spot now goes to Lil Wayne. The rapper has 109 songs on that chart with Thursday's debut of Game's song "Celebration," where he is a guest alongside Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa. Of the 109 songs, only 42 are led by Lil Wayne; 67 are songs where he is the featured act.

Elvis totaled 108 songs on the Hot 100 since it launched in 1958. The rock 'n roll icon's career kicked off before 1958 so several of his songs like "Heartbreak Hotel" could not be included in his total number.

The "Glee" cast has the most Hot 100 entries with 204.
