Nicki Minaj breaks the record held by Aretha Franklin for the most Hot 100 entries of any female artist.
Nicki Minaj's visit to Paris has proved quite successful. It not only resulted in a trio of songs to be released by the YM queen, including a proper response to Remy Ma's diss with "No Frauds," and a significant album sale increase shortly thereafter, it also resulted in a surprise appearance at Drake's show. The fruits of Nicki's labour are still being felt, as this recent collection of songs makes Nicki Minaj the female artist with the most hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Nicki Minaj's "No Frauds," with Drake and Lil Wayne, "Regret in Your Tears," and "Changed It," with Lil Wayne will all make their debut on the Hot 100 chart dated for April 1st-- clocking in at #14, #61 and #71 consecutively. These three songs were able to push Minaj ahead of the previous lady who held the title, none other than Aretha Franklin. Nicki Minaj now counts 76 Billboard Hot 100 appearances to her name, while Aretha Franklin remains at 73.
Billboard has provided a more complete list of the most Hot 100 entries by female artists of all time, which you can check out below.
