To celebrate his achievements, Drake recently added a new tattoo to his body's already extensive canvas.

Drake cheekily commemorated beating a record previously held by The Beatles with a new tattoo.

And now, according to a tweet from Drake's official fansite, Word on Road, the rapper has taken that bragging up a notch with a tattoo of The Beatles iconic Abbey Road zebra crossing photo. Picture: Danny Martindale/WireImage Alas, it appears Drake's fans weren't too fond of his latest inking, which some found a little too "cocky".

In the original album cover in which Drizzy derived his tatt is one of the most iconic album arts in music history. It simply shows the four members of the group strolling in a single-file line down the crosswalk on Abbey Road in London.

Doyle recently signed an extension to his contract, while Zlamal's deal is set to expire at the conclusion of this campaign. Hearts also took Pereira's team-mate Demetri Mitchell on an 18-month loan which concluded at the end of last season.

Drake's new tattoo comes nearly a year after he set a new record for the highest number of Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 songs in a single calendar year, surpassing The Beatles, who earned 11 top 10 songs in their breakout year of 1964, reported People. He now has 35 total but still sits behind Madonna's 38 for the all-time record.

Several fans also pointed out that the rise of digital streaming makes it easier to accrue sales than in the days of physical media during the Beatles' careers.

Following his Assassination Vacation Tour in the spring, Drizzy has been hard at work on a new album. He surprise-released his newest album "Care Package" on August 2, scoring his ninth No. 1 album on the Billboard chart.

Fans - even Drake fans, for that matter - aren't exactly applauding the rapper for the tattoo.
