Beyoncé is building on her own foundation of musical excellence by making history — yet again.

With her latest hit single, “Break My Soul,” the Grammy winner has become the first woman — and the third performer of all time — to notch at least 20 top 10 titles as a solo artist and at least 10 top 10 tracks as a member of a group on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

According to Billboard, the only other musicians to achieve this feat are Paul McCartney and Michael Jackson. “Break My Soul” peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated July 9 after debuting on June 20.

‘Renaissance,’ Beyoncé's seventh studio album, is coming July 29. On Thursday she revealed the album cover — and it’s a doozy.

After scoring 10 top 10 hits — including four No. 1s — as a member of Destiny’s Child between 1998 and 2005, Beyoncé has officially collected 20 top 10s — including seven No. 1s — as a solo artist. Her last top 10 track prior to “Break My Soul” was the Grammy-winning remix of rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage.”

McCartney has racked up 23 individual top 10 hits (including his Wings catalog) and made 34 as a member of the Beatles for a total of 57, while Jackson amassed 30 solo top 10s and 11 as a member of the Jackson 5/the Jacksons for a cumulative of 41.
