Lil wayne sets record by landing 11 simultaneous singles on Billboard Hot 100


     A hefty eight singles debut on the Billboard  hot 100 from Lil Wayne's new  album "Tha Carter IV," which, rockets onto the Billboard 200 at No. 1 with 964,000 copies sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
    
     "Mirror," featuring Bruno Mars, leads the way at No. 16, entering Hot Digital Songs at No. 6 with 149,000 downloads sold.

As three of his titles previously on the Hot 100 join his eight newcomers, Weezy places 11 songs total on this week's billboard chart, tying David Cook and Taylor Swift for the most simultaneously-charting songs by a soloist in the list's 53-year history. Only the Beatles have held more concurrent positions, having placed 14 songs on the April 11, 1964, Hot 100.
