NEW YORK – The ‘Glee‘ cast has surpassed the Beatles for the most appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 chart by a non-solo act.

The cast of the Fox television musical series about a high school glee club has six debuts on the chart this week. That gives it a total of 75 songs on the chart to the Beatles’ 71.

The show’s soundtrack got a boost after this week’s episode featuring the music of Britney Spears.

Elvis Presley still leads overall with 108 songs to chart on the Hot 100. He’s followed by James Brown with 91, then ‘Glee.’

Was ‘Glee’s Take on God Too Simple … or Simply Perfect?

The Beatles are sixth, behind Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin. Lil Wayne, Stevie Wonder and Jay-Z round out the Top 10.

Nielsen SoundScan says the ‘Glee’ cast has sold 2.8 million albums and 11.5 million downloads.
