The cast of “Glee” have put more songs onto Billboard’s Hot 100 than The Beatles.
With six more “Glee” tracks debuting on the music-tracking chart tomorrow, the Fox hit has managed to surpass the Fab Four in terms of the number of their titles that have landed on the chart.
The “Glee” cast has put 75 songs into the Hot 100 since the series debuted last year.
The cast’s cover of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” will arrive Thursday as the Hot 100’s highest debut (No. 16), having sold 109,000 downloads in its first week.
The Beatles have 71 titles on the chart between 1964 and 1996.
Of course, the “Glee” cast didn’t write any of their own songs, and a cover of The Beatles’ “Hello Goodbye” is among the “Glee” list. Another “Glee” take on a Beatles classic, “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” was on Tuesday’s show and will likely land in the Hot 100 too.
The “Glee” cast is not yet the all-time Hot 100 record holder. Elvis Presley (108) and James Brown (91) are still ahead.
