Forty years ago, Britain's Fab Four had the top four singles in a row -- "Can't Buy Me Love," "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You" and "I Want to Hold Your Hand," plus "Please Please Me" in fifth place, the New York Daily News said Thursday.
This week's chart features four songs featuring 50 Cent, "Candy Shop" at No. 1, "Hate it or Love it" at No. 3, "Disco Inferno" at No. 6 and "How We Do" in ninth place. In three of the four, 50 Cent is guesting or using a guest artist.
"It's always dangerous to compare anything to the Beatles, since they hold such a singular place in music history," Billbooard chart editor Geoff Mayfield said. "And besides, on their five Top 10 songs, it was all them -- it wasn't like Petula Clark was guesting."
