Everywhere he goes, Lil Wayne seems to break records. His latest album, Tha Carter IV set a new iTunes record for first week sales. Entering its second week on the charts, Wayne's latest album is already platinum.

Throughout the early parts of this year, Lil Wayne's Carter IV lead single, "6 Foot 7 Foot," dominated the charts. The single was followed by "John" and "She Will." Lil Wayne recently leaked eight songs from his album.

Now, Lil Wayne has set a Billboard record, having eleven total singles on the charts. Wayne has tied David Cook and Taylor Swift for the most singles on the Billboard Hot 100. Lil Wayne now matches Jay-Z in another category, being second to only The Beatles on the charts.

In 1964, the British group had fourteen songs on the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time.
