Jay-Z Breaks Record For Most Number One Records, Beating Elvis Presley

Jay-Z Breaks Elvis Presley's Number One Record

Not even Kanye or Lil Mama can overshadow Jay-Z's latest act: he has beaten Elvis Presley for the most number one records by a solo artist.

His latest album, the Blueprint #3, debuted at number one on the Billboard chart, making it his 11th album to go straight to the top spot (his first was 1998's "Vol. 2 . . . Hard Knock Life"). Two songs from the album, "Empire State of Mind" and "Young Forever," also debuted in Billboard's Hot 100. The man has had a good run and shows no signs of slowing down; check out some other chart-toppers in my best of Jay-Z playlist.

So if Jay-Z now holds the record for most number ones as a solo act, who has the record overall? Those new additions to Rock Band, The Beatles.
