This doesn't mean Lil Wayne tied Elvis' record.
For Billboard to act like digital downloads are the same thing as single releases from the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s etc. is a joke.
It's two different things but for Billboard to act like it's the same thing is a slap in the face to artists like James Brown and Elvis who charted loads of singles on the chart through many years.
Billlboard giving legitimate credit to Glee and now Lil Wayne is just stupid.
I think they do it partly because the people at Billboard are too young to know the difference between downloads and going to record stores 40 and 50 years ago to physically buy a single.
The people at Billboard should educate themselves.
