Future has dethroned the King.
Following the release of his new album High Off Life, the Atlanta rapper now has more entries than Elvis Presley on the Billboard Hot 100. Twelve songs off the project debuted on the chart, pushing his career total to 110, the fourth-most ever.
Only three acts have more entries in the 62-year history of the Hot 100: Drake (222), the “Glee” Cast (207), and Lil Wayne (163). In addition to Elvis, Future surpasses Nicki Minaj (109), Kanye West (107), Chris Brown (101), and JAY-Z (100) for most Hot 100 entries.
Taking to social media, a humbled Hndrxx reacted to the legendary accomplishment. “7 number 1 albums and they mentioning me with ELVIS PRESLEY. Grateful and beyond THANKFUL,” he tweeted.

Future has even more reason to celebrate. High Off Life became his seventh No. 1 album on the Billboard 200. The project, which features Travis Scott, Young Thug, and Lil Uzi Vert, opened with 153,000 equivalent album units, his biggest week for a solo album.
