As Migos' song 'Walk It Talk It' leaped from No. 15 to No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, Drake, who is featured on the track, earns his 24th top 10 hit. The Toronto rapper simultaneously broke his fifth-place tie with Paul McCartney, who holds 23 top 10 hits.

Ahead of Drake in the race for the most top tens among male soloists is Elvis Presley (25), Elton John (27), Stevie Wonder (28), and Michael Jackson (29).

Of course, McCartney landed many more top ten hits with The Beatles—34, to be exact. It's also worth noting that as far as female artists go, Rihanna has 31 top 10 tracks, second only to Madonna's 38. Drake does, however, boast the most overall Hot 100 entries among solo acts, across both male and female, at a whopping 161 hits.

There seems to be no end in sight for the 6God, whose song 'God’s Plan' sits comfortably atop the Hot 100 for the 11th consecutive week. Plus, with the way things are going, it's likely Drake's newest single, 'Nice for What,' will grant him his 25th top 10 hit, tying him with none other than The King.
