The entire cast of Glee has set a new record for the most singles charting on the Billboard Hot 100, a record long held by the Beatles.
The Billboard Hot 100 has existed for 54-years and in that time the Beatles had the most charted “non-solo act” hits with 71 songs appearing on the list, that was a long standing record for a non-solo act that will be passed over the next week when the cast of Glee will see 75 of their songs reach the Hot 100.
Billboard.com announced the amazing feat today, of course we have to take into consideration that the group of singers have never actually created a song, instead remixing popular hits to fit their show.
The next big milestone would be to surpass Elvis Presley who holds the all-time record with 108 songs as a solo artist.
Here are the other top artists including solo and group acts:
2. James Brown (91)
3. The Cast of Glee (75)
4. Ray Charles
5. Aretha Franklin
6. The Beatles
7. Elton John
8. Lil Wayne
9. Stevie Wonder
What’s more amazing is that the cast of Glee has managed just 2.8 million albums sold with that amount of hits although they do have more than 11.5 million downloads of their singles worldwide.
