Future has overtaken Elvis Presley and Nicki Minaj for the fourth-most Billboard Hot 100 entries ever. 🐐

Securing 13 placements from his latest album, High Off Life, on the updated Hot 100, Future has now earned 110 total entries, making him just the ninth act in history to rack up at least 100 career Hot 100 hits.

In addition to Presley and Minaj, who both hold 109 entries, the Wizard surpassed Kanye West (107), Chris Brown (101) and JAY-Z (100). Only three acts in the history of the Hot 100, which was founded in 1958, have charted more: Drake (222), the cast of Glee (207) and Lil Wayne (163).

Pushing 153,000 equivalent album units, High Off Life also recently debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart, giving Future his seventh No. 1 album in just a five-year span, most among any artist. This latest effort represents his most commercially successful first week ever in terms of units moved.

"7 number 1 albums and they mentioning me with ELVIS PRESLEY. Grateful and beyond THANKFUL," he tweeted in celebration.

Earlier in the week, he shared another relatively humble message: "Ain in the mood to brag but u get it. #1"

While Minaj sits behind Future by only one song, she probably isn't trippin' as her latest Hot 100 entry was a big one. Appearing on the remix of Doja Cat's hit "Say So," the two artists both snagged their first-ever No. 1 record.

She was recently removed from the track credits on the Hot 100 due to the fact that Doja's original version was driving most of the streaming activity, but that "does not affect any of Minaj's achievements" with the song, according to Billboard.

Megan Thee Stallion also had reason to celebrate the most recent Hot 100 results as she picked up her inaugural No. 1 hit with "Savage Remix" featuring Beyoncé.
