Another day, another milestone for the Canadian rapper. 

Drake has broken the record for the most top 10 singles in the history of the US Billboard chart, overtaking the previous record-holder Madonna.

The two artists were previously tied with 38 songs each but now the Canadian rapper and singer scored his 39th and 40th top 10 hits thanks to his collaboration with DJ Khaled on the tracks "Popstar" and "Greece," which debuted in the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

The last time Madonna notched a top 10 hit was in 2010 with "Give me all Your Luvin,' a single she recorded with Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.  However, the star still holds the record for the most top 10 singles as a lead artist since she's credited as the main performer on all 38 of her appearances in the top 10.

Drake's latest feat comes just 11 years after his first appearance in the top 10, with his breakthrough hit, “Best I Ever Had,” and a few months after Drake also broke the record for most total singles on the top 100 with 208, beating out the Glee cast. The total has now reached 224, including his most recent full-length release, Dark Lane Demo Tapes, which came out in May. Every track from it placed on the Hot 100, including “Toosie Slide” at No 1.

If that wasn’t enough, Drake also holds the records for most consecutive weeks spent on the chart, most simultaneous entries into the chart, and last year, he beat two 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. 

Not too shabby.

Here’s a breakdown of the artists currently placed on the top 10.
