Drake has officially scored his 12th Top 10 single this year with some help from our fall crush Bad Bunny—the Puerto Rican rapper’s single “MIA,” which features Drake, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. That means Drake has decimated the previous record of 11 Top 10 (meaning a song that was in one of the top 10 slots) Hot 100 singles in one year, previously held by a band named “the Beatles” in their “breakout” year, 1964, Billboard reports.

Apparently, the Beatles still hold the record for most No. 1s in a single year—six in 1964—but Drake is well on his way, I’m sure. He’s already the rapper with the most Hot 100 No. 1 hits of all time, after all. Soon, the Beatles will be a distant memory...

In the meantime, Bad Bunny says you’re welcome.

It’s kind of apples to oranges considering how streaming has completely shifted how Billboard tracks the success of albums and songs. For example Quavo’s “debut solo album earned 99,000 units in the frame ending Oct. 18, with 6,000 of that sum coming from album sales” and is still the #2 album in the country.
