*With Migos’ “Walk It Talk It” rising from No. 15 to No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week, featured artist Drake has inched up a slot in the race for the most top 10s among solo males.

The track marks Drake’s 24th Hot 100 top 10, breaking him out of a fifth-place tie with Paul McCartney for the most top 10s among male soloists, Billboard reports.

Michael Jackson tops the list with 29 Top 10s, followed by Stevie Wonder with 28, Elton John with 27 and Elvis Presley with 25.

Following Drake in sixth and seventh place are McCartney with 24 and Jay-Z with 21.

The Canadian rapper also appears headed for a Presley-tying 25th top 10 on next week’s Hot 100 with new track “Nice for What,” released Friday, April 6.  According to industry sources, the track on Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records drew over 20 million U.S. streams and sold over 40,000 downloads in its first three days (through April 8). Based on that fast out-of-the-gate response, the song should make a top 10, perhaps top five, debut on next week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated April 21), which blends streaming, airplay and sales data, according to Nielsen Music.

Beyond career top 10s, Drake boasts the most overall Hot 100 entries among solo acts, male and female: 161.

In still more Drake milestones, “God’s Plan” leads the Hot 100 for an 11th week, passing his 2016 hit “One Dance” (featuring WizKid and Kyla) for his longest reign. “God’s Plan” is also the first single to spend its first 11 weeks on the Hot 100 at No. 1 since Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind 1997” / “Something About the Way You Look Tonight,” which logged its first 14 weeks on the chart at the summit in 1997-98.
