This, after starring in a brand new T-Mobile commercial and before the unveiling of her new ABC series.

Chart Check [Hot 100]: Nicki Minaj Moves Closer To Making Billboard History

nicki-minaj-thatgrapejuice-hot-100-ariana

In January 2015 we reported rapstress Nicki Minaj, with 60 Hot 100 titles to her credit, was only 14 entries away from entering history books with “the most Hot 100 entries by a female in history.”

Held at bay by country darling Taylor Swift and Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin at the time, fast forwarding to September 2016 has seen little change.  Minaj, now with 68 titles to her credit, still remains 3rd in line behind Franklin and Swift.  However, with the addition of Ariana Grande‘s ‘Side to Side’ (which debuted at #31 last week), the ‘Va Va Voom‘ vixen is swiftly closing the gap between herself and her history-making competitors.

In reference to ‘Side,’ Billboard reports:

The song arrives as Minaj’s 68th Hot 100 hit, moving her to within five of Aretha Franklin‘s record for the most among women (73) and one shy of runner-up Taylor Swift’s total (69). (“Side” is Grande’s 21st Hot 100 title.)

Here is an updated look at the women with the most Hot 100 visits, dating to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958 inception:

73, Aretha Franklin
69, Taylor Swift
68, Nicki Minaj
57, Madonna
57, Rihanna

Impressive! Tuck in below to see this week’s updated chart:

Shots Fired: #Barbz Slam Rah Digga After Nicki Minaj Diss

nicki-minaj-thatgrapejuice-rah-digga

…and the gloves are off!

Rapstress Rah Digga, best known for her work as part of the Busta Rhymes-led Flipmode Squad, hasn’t exactly seen her name atop headlines much over the past decade.  However, some timely shade thrown at current femcee phenom, Nicki Minaj, has certainly hoisted the 2000’s rapstress to the top of headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Indeed, after providing a not-so-subtle clapback to a fan who pitted the rapstresses against each other, Digga’s response was taken as a dig toward ongoing rumors that Safaree – Minaj’s ex-boyfriend of over a decade – was the ghost writer behind most of the Grammy nominee’s most memorable bars.

The result?  An ongoing Twitter dragging from Minaj’s dedicated fans, affectionately known as “Barbz”:
