21 Savage has written himself into the Billboard Hot 100 history books with "American Dream."

On Tuesday, 14 songs from Savage's third solo album, which was released on January 12, debuted on the Hot 100.

It means the "redrum" rapper has now scored over 100 career hits on the chart.

Only 15 other artists in history have ever hit the same milestone.

They include Drake, who boasts the most-ever Hot 100 hits with 328, Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Future, Lil Baby, and Jay-Z.

Last week, "American Dream" debuted atop the Billboard 200 album, scoring Savage his fourth No. 1 album.

Savage's second studio album, 2018's "I Am > I Was," as well as 2020 album with with Metro Boomin "Savage Mode II" and his 2022 album with Drake "Her Loss," all previously topped the chart.

Ahead of the release of "American Dream," Savage sat down for an interview with Rolling Stone, in which he followed in the footsteps of Fat Joe by admitting that "a lot" of his lyrics are not based on real events.

Earlier in December, Joe admitted to fabricating stories in his "95%" of his music.

“I just think of it in my head,” Savage told Rolling Stone of the stories in his music. “Some of it be based off of real life, but a lot of it be creative stories.”
