Artist Fetty Wap from Paterson, NJ recently released his debut studio album which opened at No. 1, crowning the Billboard 200 albums chart, but this post is about another milestone for Fetty Wap, he reached a landmark that no one other then the Beatles can claim. Fetty Wap's first 3 hit singles where in the top 10 of the billboard hot 100 chart, "Trap Queen which peeked at No. 2, "679" peeking at No. 4 and "My Way" peeking at No. 7, (these numbers where at different points in time, not simultaneously), All which were recorded and mixed here at So Amazin' Studios and "679" being produced by our in house Producer and Engineer, Brian "Peoples" Garcia.
According to Billboard, at one point in time, Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen," "My Way" and "679" where all simultaneously in the top 11 of the billboards hot 100 chart, something that has not been done since the Beatles back in 1964, thats over half a century ago! The only 2 artist's to come closet was Lil Wayne back in 2011 with "She Will" & "How To Love" and Eminem back in 2013 with "The Monster," and "Rap God", but these 2 artist's only had 2 simultaneous singles in the top 11 of the billboard hot 100 chart while Fetty Wap had 3 simultaneous singles in the top 11. Since the Beatles were a band that consisted of 4 members (George Harrison, Paul McCartney, John Lennon, and Ringo Star), it is safe to say that Fetty Wap is the only solo artist in history to have 3 hit singles in the top 11 of the Billboard hot 100.
What Many do not not know is that on April 4, 1964 the Beatles simultaneously held the top consecutive 5 spots on the Billboard hot 100 for their singles "Can't buy Me Love," "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You," "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Please Please Me." on top of that they had 7 other songs in hot 100, giving them a total of a dozen hits simultaneously on the BillBoard hot 100 chart!
How was it possible that the market was this flooded? Well, after they made it big in England, the Beatles didn't hit America until more then a year later. At that point the "Fab Four" were already well known with a very long song catalog containing many hits. When they finally hit America, their entire catalog came along with them, flooding the American market and over whelming Americans with hits on top of hits.
