Drake got more slaps than the Beatles and he celebrated the honor by getting a new tattoo.
It looks like after the Grammy-award winning rapper beat The Beatles Billboard record last year, the Toronto native got some interesting new ink. Drizzy fans have taken notice of a new tattoo on his left forearm that shows him standing in front of the iconic band; a seemingly obvious reference to him beating the 60s pop-rock band’s Billboard record.

The tattoo is inspired by the Beatles’ 1969 classic album Abbey Road. The band’s members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr are walking in a line. But in Drakes new tatoo, the “In My Feelings” rapper is seen standing in front of the Beatles while waving.
A bold move from the rap superstar. Drake mentioned his Beatles feat in Meek Mill’s “Going Bad” when he raps, “I got more slaps than the Beatles,”. He surpassed the iconic group’s record for most songs simultaneously in the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 10 in June 2018 following the release of Scorpion. Drizzy had seven songs while the Fab Four’s record of five had stood since 1964.
In October ’18, Drake secured 12 tracks on Billboard’s Hot 100’s Top 10 in a calendar year which passed the Beatles’ record of 11 in 1964. But this past June, Drake passed the British band for a third time by claiming the second-most Hot 100 Top 10s of all time. He only needs four more to bring his 35 above Madonna’s record of 38.
