Beyonce new album Lion King: The Gift didn't exactly set the charts on fire, moving a disappointing-for-Bey 51K in its first week.

But it did birth the hit “Mood 4 Eva", which features Childish Gambino, Malian singer Oumou Sangaré and Beyonce's hubby JAY-Z.

The cut opened number 9 on the Hot 100, which gives Hov his 100th entry on the Billboard singles chart.

The only other artists to do that are the cast of Glee with 207 appearances, Drake (196), Lil Wayne (163), Elvis Presley (109), and Nicki Minaj (103.)

Jay-Z's crown mate Kanye West (96) and Chris Brown (95) are both knocking on the door and should get there soon.

Hip Hop's feature culture makes it easier for its artist to rack up Hot 100 hits. But 100 is still 100 and Hov has had quite a chart career -- which started with his 1996 Foxy Brown featured cut  "Ain’t No N*gga"
