Over the Hot 100’s 63-year history, Lamar lands the eighth week in which an act has charted nine or more titles in the top 20 simultaneously, and the first occurrence this year. It’s the most since Drake charted a one-week record 14 on the Sept. 18, 2021-dated Hot 100, concurrent with the debut of his album Certified Lover Boy. Drake also charted 12 songs in the July 14, 2018, chart’s top 20, while Olivia Rodrigo (June 5, 2021), J. Cole (May 29, 2021), Juice WRLD (July 25, 2020) and Post Malone (Sept. 21, 2019, May 12, 2018) have each charted nine at a time.

Even rarer, Lamar is just the third artist to chart as many as 13 songs in the Hot 100’s top 40 in a week. Drake charted 21 on both the Sept. 18, 2021, and July 14, 2018, surveys; Post Malone boasted 14 on the Sept. 21, 2019, and May 12, 2018, rankings; and Lil Uzi Vert notched 13 on the March 21, 2020, chart.

Lamar has now charted 69 career Hot 100 entries, including two No. 1s, 12 top 10s and 40 top 40 hits.

Meanwhile, Amanda Reifer, Taylour Paige, Sam Dew, Tanna Leone all make their first appearances on the Hot 100, as does Beth Gibbons as a soloist; the band Portishead, which Gibbons co-founded in 1991, took “Sour Times (Nobody Loves Me)” to No. 53 in 1995. The hit also rose to No. 5 on Alternative Airplay that year.
