    “Of his 32 Hot 100 top 10s, Drake posts his historic 12th of 2018,” the site reads. “He passes The Beatles’ 11 in their breakout year, 1964. That makes another single-year record for Drake, who, with a 29th week at No. 1 this year, passed Usher for the most time on top in any January-December span.”This is not Drake’s first history-making milestone in music this year. In September, he broke Usher’s record when he became the artist with the longest-reigning number one artist in a single year. He has had three consecutive songs at number one, and his hit “In My Feelings” was number one for 10 weeks when the record was broken.“Drake becomes the first soloist, and second act overall, after Boyz II Men, with three songs that have topped the Hot 100 for at least 10 weeks each,” wrote Billboard.“MIA” marks Drake’s 32nd top 10 overall, the most among solo males and the third-most overall, after Madonna’s 38 and The Beatles’ 34. He breaks out of a tie with Rihanna (31).

    Atop the Hot 100, Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You,” featuring Cardi B, tallies a fifth week at No. 1.
