Drake Tied with Elvis

For what it is worth in regard to the way charts are compiled now-days.

Drake tied Elvis Presley’s number of top-10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 this week after his latest release, “Nice For What,” hit No. 1 on the chart, dethroning his previous No. 1 single, “God’s Plan.” The rapper has now earned 25 top-10 singles on Billboard’s chart, matching the mark Presley set with 1972’s “Burning Love.”

The Elvis Information Network website notes however that this story is totally false as the Billboard 'Top 100' only started in summer 1958 and so the KEY years of Elvis' run of top ten hits, 1956 and 1957 are actually missing from the list. Without even considering this new age of "instant download" and the distortion that this has created on the charts, ELVIS still dominates everyone who had the same period in the charts. Elvis had twelve top ten US hits in 1956/57 making his total actually 37 - just one behind Madonna.
