March 2017 saw the self-proclaimed Queen of Rap Nicki Minaj dethrone Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin for the Billboard Hot 100 throne.
Surpassing the R&B legend’s whopping 73 career-long entries on the tally with her three songs ‘No Frauds,’ ‘Changed It,’ and ‘Regret In Your Tears,’ Minaj left Franklin and her nearest competitors – Taylor Swift and Rihanna – in the dust among females [on that particular tally]. The 8 months that followed only cemented the rapstress’s place in history books as she added charting singles with the likes of Jason Derulo, Katy Perry, Yo Gotti, Future, and more to her Hot 100 resume.
Fast forward to this week, the Harajuku Barbie hits another milestone as her contribution to ‘Motorsport,’ her newest tune with rising rapstress Cardi B and hip hop chart-toppers Migos, sees the Grammy-nominated femcee nab another top 20 – a feat that makes her the first female artist in history to enter 80 charting titles on the singles chart.
Tuck in below to find out exactly where the tune debuted:
Hot 100 This Week
Nicki shouldn’t get too comfortable with her place in history books, however. Swift – who has 73 chart entries to her credit – will most likely see at least 8 of the 15 tracks from her new album, ‘Reputation,’ hit the Hot 100 when the tally refreshes week after next. If this occurs, she will surpass Minaj for most career-long entries among women.
