Drake’s star just keeps rising.

The rapper's OVO label has a new star called iLoveMakonnen, whose single, “Tuesday,” debuted at the 90th spot on the Hot 100 chart.

Because Drake is a featured artist on the track, he now has 72 singles that have appeared in the top 100, allowing him to inch past The Beatles, who rest at 71 chart-toppers.
