Kells Crushes Nat King Cole

At least in terms of Top 10 hits…

Today Robert Sylvester surpassed Nat King Cole’s record as having the most top 10 hits in history.  Pretty impressive stuff, even though I can’t believe “Number One” is actually a top 10 record.  I kinda think it’s pretty unforgettable.  Pow!  It has even sold a whopping 91k copies digitally.  Kells stans unite!

Sez Billboard:

R. Kelly will release his tenth studio album, “Untitled,” on Dec. 1st with Jive Records. First single, “Number One,” featuring Keri Hilson, reached No. 8 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Song chart and No. 68 on the Hot 100.

“Number One,” which has already sold 91,000 digital downloads, is R. Kelly’s 35th Top 10 single on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, which means he has now surpassed Nat King Cole’s record of having the most Top 10 hits on that chart.

Second single, Religious,” recently entered at No. 95 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
