Jay-Z has set another chart record: He’s reached the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 in four consecutive decades.

The Roc Nation CEO is featured on Drake’s “Love All,” from the Certified Lover Boy album, which debuted this week at number ten. Hova joins Mariah Carey as the only artist to earn top-ten singles in the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s and now the 2020s, according to Chart Data. His top tens include “Heartbreaker” in 1999 with Mariah, “Empire State of Mind” in 2009 with Alicia Keys, and “Holy Grail,” featuring Justin Timberlake, in 2013.

Jay is also one of only eight artists to achieve ten number-one albums on the Billboard 200. He has 14 number ones, second to The Beatles, who continue to hold the record, with 19.

As previously reported, the 51-year-old sports and entertainment mogul personally recorded his wife Beyoncé singing “Moon River” for the new Tiffany ABOUT LOVE campaign.

In other news, it’s rumored that Jay, who is a consultant to the NFL, is in talks to become pro football’s first Black owner. Front Office Sports reports that he’s among the potential suitors to buy the Denver Broncos for an estimated $4 billion.
