Juice WRLD Ties The Beatles and Drake's Billboard Top 10 Record

With an explosive first week under its belt, it’s no surprise that Juice WRLD‘s Legends Never Die would be taking over the Billboard charts. However, analysts were not expecting the rapper’s posthumous record to take over the singles chart in the same way that Drake and The Beatles did in the past.

Though The Beatles hold a great deal of Billboard records (some of which Drake has smashed), the one in question is their 1964 achievement. This was when the legendary rock band snagged half of the Hot 100’s Top 10 places with “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Twist and Shout,” “She Loves You,” “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Please Please Me” during the height of Beatlemania, a feat that was first tied and then bested by Drake.

A quintet of Juice WRLD tracks — “Come & Go,” “Wishing Well,” Conversations,” “Life’s a Mess” and “Hate the Other Side” — have notched high marks on the Hot 100 — #2, #5, #7, #9 and #10, respectively — landing in the coveted Top 10. This follows the album’s rise to the Billboard chart’s #1 spot. In the Hot 100’s 62-year legacy, WRLD is only the third-ever act to achieve this feat with the Top 10, though no artist has yet managed to match The Beatles in simultaneously taking over the first five spots on the list.

Previously, Juice WRLD hit #2 with “Lucid Dreams”, #3 with his feature on Eminem’s “Godzilla” and #10 with his NBA Youngboy collaboration, “Bandit,” bringing the late artist’s Billboard Top 10 count up to eight.

Pop Smoke‘s posthumous album also recently saw strong Billboard numbers.
