 Congrats are in order for Drake, as he dismantles yet another Billboard record. 

This time around, the Toronto lyricist has scored a historic feat as he racks up his 203rd appearance on the Hot 100 chartBillboard reports. Drake has his new #1 album Care Package to thank for the milestone, as six songs off the effort debuted simultaneously on the tally.

As a result, the OVO head honcho is now the first solo artist to surpass 200 appearances on the Billboard Hot 100. The only act that has more is the cast of Glee, which holds the all-time record with 207 entries.

Following Drake’s total of 203 entries is his mentor and frequent collaborator Lil Wayne with 163 appearances, Elvis Presley with 109, Nicki Minaj with 103 and JAY-Z with 100. 

The Care Package songs which upped his grand total include “Trust Issues,” “How About Now,” “The Motion,” “Dreams Money Can Buy,” “Club Paradise” and “Days in the East.” Some of the tracks date back to nearly a decade and were never officially released until now.

As previously reported, Care Package accounts for Drake’s ninth #1 album.
