Apparently, Drake has a thing for the headlines lately. Only this time, the Canadian rapper decided to make waves with his own music (Aaliyah and Chris Brown news aside). We all knew that Drake had a penchant for hit-making, but who knew that it had reached a historic level? Drake’s record was achieved when he surpassed Jay-Z on the all-time list for most number one hits on the R&B/Hip-Hop charts.

With seven collaborations and three lead singles, the Young Money lieutenant now stands at 10, breaking his tie with Jay-Z after the 2 Chainz “No Lie” collab catapulted to the top of the charts. Jay-Z was the previous gold standard at nine, with his four lead singles and five collaborations. Rounding out the list is Lil Wayne with eight, and Kanye West with six. –dewayne rogers
