With his recent comments about not liking New York, Lil Wayne may have tread on some toes, but now he's stepping on Elvis' blue suede shoes.
According to Billboard's ChartBeat, Lil Wayne ties Elvis' record for songs by a solo male artist to have charted on the Hot 100. Weezy and Elvis each have 108 records which made that chart. Of course, some of Elvis' biggest hits, like "Heartbreak Hotel," "Don't Be Cruel" and "Hound Dog," predate the start of the chart on August 4, 1958. And, while Elvis was the lead on all of his songs, Lil Wayne's stats include records where he was featured on another artists' song. As a lead artist, Lil Wayne has racked up just 42 hits.
The song that pushed the rapper to his newest plateau is his guest spot with 2 Chainz on Juicy J's "Make Her Dance," which debuted at number 71 on the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Wayne also has another current Hot 100 hit called "No Worries" featuring Detail, which in its second week on the chart has already jumped from 96 to 58.
Ahead of Lil Wayne at the top of the list is the cast of Glee who have had 204 songs make the chart -- that's the most Hot 100 hits by any act since the chart was started.
Among the other solo male artists who've made frequent appearances on the Hot 100 chart are James Brown in third place with 91 Hot 100 hits, Ray Charles in fourth place with 74 entries, and Elton John who's had 67 Hot 100 hits.
