Lil Wayne dethrones Elvis Presley’s longstanding record of Billboard Hot 100 hits total. As he debuts as a featured artist (with Chris Brown, Tyga and Wiz Khalifa) on Game’s aptly titled “Celebration” at No. 82, the superstar rapper rewrites the mark for the most Hot 100 chart visits. Now with 109 entries, Weezy passes Elvis Presley, who totaled 108 between the chart’s 1958 launch and 2003. The “Glee” cast is the only act with more Hot 100 hits than Lil Wayne or Presley, having tallied 204 entries since its 2009 arrival. While making approximately two-thirds of his Hot 100 visits in featured roles, Lil Wayne has still enjoyed laudable Hot 100 accolades. He’s notched two No. 1s: 2008’s “Lollipop” and 2009’s “Down,” on which he assisted Jay Sean. Fifty-seven of his Hot 100 entries have reached the top 40 and 17, the top 10 (compared to Presley’s 80 and 25, respectively). Here is a recap, updated through this week, of the artists with the most Billboard Hot 100 hits, as leads and featured acts combined, in the chart’s 54-year history: 204, “Glee” Cast 109, Lil Wayne 108, Elvis Presley 91, James Brown 74, Ray Charles 73, Aretha Franklin 71, the Beatles 71, Jay-Z 67, Elton John 63, Stevie Wonder
