A Timeline of the Artists With the Most Hot 100 Top 10s, From Elvis Presley to Drake

In what feels like a now regular occurrence, Drake adds another all-time Billboard Hot 100 record to his stacked resume this week, as he takes the title of the artist with the most top 10 hits in the chart’s 62-year history. With his featured turns on DJ Khaled’s “Popstar” and “Greece” arriving at Nos. 3 and 8, respectively, on the list dated Aug. 1, he outdoes Madonna, who had owned the record since 2002. (Madonna and Drake were tied for the then-most top 10s, 38 each, since May.)

For those keeping score, Drake now has the most top 10s (40), top 40 hits (113) and entries on the Hot 100 (224), helped by his prevalence in the streaming era, in which many more songs from albums reach the chart in general, and his standing as one of the acts most tapped for collaborations and featured roles.

As Drake takes possession of one of the most prominent Hot 100 records, Billboard revisits the history of this specific feat, with a moving graphic tracing the acts who have visited the top 10 the most in the chart’s more than six-decade history. From Elvis Presley’s initial explosion through the near-untouchable gap that The Beatles created in the mid-1960s until Madonna and Drake came along, so many of the rock era’s biggest superstars  – some unexpected, some obvious – jockeyed for positions on the leaderboard.
