Beyoncé Surpasses 100 Career Hot 100 Hits, Thanks to ‘Cowboy Carter’

Beyoncé has a massive week on Billboard’s charts, thanks to her latest LP, Cowboy Carter. Along with charting 23 songs from the album on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated April 13), she ups her career total from 85 entries to 106. As such, she becomes the 17th artist, and only the third woman, to have logged 100 or more titles since the chart began in 1958.

Cowboy Carter debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 (and the Top Country Albums and Americana/Folk Albums charts) with 407,000 equivalent album units earned in the United States in the March 29-April 4 tracking week, according to Luminate – the biggest one-week total of 2024. She also becomes the first Black woman to lead Top Country Albums.

Here’s a look at all 17 artists in the 100 Hot 100 Hits club:

329, Drake
232, Taylor Swift
207, Glee Cast
186, Lil Wayne
185, Future

104, YoungBoy Never Broke Again
103, 21 Savage

Notably, Beyoncé (106) surpasses the total Hot 100 hits of her husband, Jay-Z (105). They have harmoniously charted three songs together, led by her first entry, “‘03 Bonnie & Clyde” (billed as by Jay-Z featuring Beyoncé Knowles), which hit No. 4 in December 2002.

Of Beyoncé’s 106 career Hot 100 hits, 61 have reached the top 40; 24 have hit the top 10; and nine have gone to No. 1.

Thanks to their guest appearances on Cowboy Carter, eight artists earn their first Hot 100 entries: Tanner Adell, Willie Jones, Tiera Kennedy, Linda Martell, Reyna Roberts, Shaboozey, Brittney Spencer and Beyoncé’s daughter Rumi Carter. At six years old, Rumi is now the youngest-charting female artist in Hot 100 history. She breaks the record previously held by her sister, Blue Ivy Carter, who was seven when she debuted as featured on Beyoncé, SAINt JHN and Wizkid’s No. 76-peaking “Brown Skin Girl” in 2019.
