With streaming the most popular it’s ever been, chart records are being broken every week, with Post Malone’s Beerbongs & Bentleys being the latest project to enjoy the moment. After setting a record for most simultaneous tracks in the Billboard Hot 100 this week, Post has also broken a record on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
According to Billboard, Post is the first artist to place 6 songs within the chart’s top ten simultaneously. Right now he’s on there with “Psycho” (No. 2), “Better Now” (No. 4) “Rockstar”(No. 5), “Paranoid” (No. 7), “Rich & Sad” (No. 9) and “Spoil My Night” (No. 10). Pre-release singles “Psycho” and “Rockstar” were already occupying the chart last week, while the other four tracks have debuted in the top ten upon release.
This new record puts Post ahead Drake, J. Cole, and Cardi B, who are tied for second place, each having logged a simultaneous 5 songs on the chart.
