Lil Wayne's rockin' record could partly be attributed to countless features on other artists' songs. Only about 40 percent of his total stems from his solo hits, while the remainder represent his appearance on records by other entertainers, like Destiny's Child and Birdman.

All 108 of Elvis' chart hits were his own works. The late rock iconr still holds the title for most Hot 100 entries by a lead solo artist.
