It is considered to be quite an accomplishment when an artist can have five or six songs from a single album become hit songs and it usually takes several months to accomplish.

But young rapper and singer Post Malone has not only surpassed the feat; but he has also done so in a single WEEK!

Malone’s second album “beerbongs and bentleys” has reached the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart, tops the list of albums streamed, and has spawned NINE hit songs in the top 20 – three in the top eight – of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and breaking the record of six songs that had been held by The Beatles and J Cole. In fact, all 18 songs from the album are on the Hot 100 chart with “Psycho” leading the way. While 18 songs in the Hot 100 is impressive, Drake holds the record with 24.
