Over the past few years, Drake has secured his spot as one of the world's biggest musical artists by breaking a number of Billboard records. This week, he adds another achievement to his long list. 

As Billboard reports, both of Drake's collaborations with DJ Khaled, "Popstar" and "Greece," have debuted in the Billboard Hot 100 this week, landing the number 3 and number 8 spots, respectively. With that, he has earned 40 top 10 hits, officially surpassing pop star Madonna who previously tied with Drake at 38. The last time Madonna notched a top 10 hit was in 2010 with her Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. single, "Give me all Your Luvin'."

Back in March, Drake also broke the record for most total singles on the top 100 with 208, beating out the Glee cast. He also now holds the records for most consecutive weeks spent on the chart, most simultaneous entries into the chart, and last year, he notably beat two long-held Billboard records by the Beatles, for most songs placed in the top 10 at once and most Hot 100 top 10 songs in a single year.
