The songs that have allowed the rapper to accomplish this feat include her solo song ‘Your Love’ and her features on Ludacris’ ‘My Chick Bad’, Lil Wayne’s ‘Knockout’, Trey Songz’s ‘Bottoms Up’, Usher’s ‘Lil Freak’, Sean Kingston’s ‘Letting Go (Dutty Love)’, Mariah Carey’s Up Out My Face’ and Jay Sean’s ‘It Ain’t The End’.

    B******* ..IHow can you celebrate 10 people success like it was yours.
    Today’s record are stupid and only based on sell.Not real talent ..
    I am not gonna say congrats after her lame performances at the VMA’s and Lettermann’s show.

    God Knows that I really love Nicki

  2. FUTURESTARdelux October 8, 2010

    AGREE WITH @KAT DELUNA FAN, THOSE SONGS (APPART FROM YOUR LOVE) ARN’T EVEN HERS SO IT’S ANOTHER FAKE ACHIEVEMENT FOR A FAKE B****.

  3. Twin October 8, 2010

    Does are not her sales plus her fans and manager put out lies just like the whip my hair remix and fake trip to canada. I’m not hating but that’s not rap and people know it including lil wayne

  4. chi09 October 8, 2010

    All those songs would have been nothing without her. just think about ho they would have sounded…she made them unique

  5. T October 8, 2010

    She is acredited simply for the fact that she WROTE a part of the songs (her verses). Its the same thing with some of Rihanna’s number 1s. (Run this town and Love the way you lie).
    I don’t know if she wrote the chorus to love the way you lie but she sti gets credit for it because she sings on it.

    Please don’t hate on Nicki’s grind and success.

  6. GangsterA October 8, 2010

    ^^ i agree with you with out nicki i wont even listen to them anyway congrats nicki #barbiebitches

  7. Nicki Minah October 8, 2010

    I got the haters mad this early in the morning.

    But hey I don’t sympathize cuz yall some simple b******.

    Stay Mad

  8. Blue Kid October 8, 2010

    Nicki is stealing fake a** Rihanna fake a** crown!

  9. Natam October 8, 2010

    How could this be? More than Missy? Maybe you mean most entries in one year, cause a quick wikipedia check shows Missy has 41 entries into the hot 100, and i don’t think her every charting appearence is listed there.

  10. honesty October 8, 2010

    she’s not the female with the most entries on the chart–
    they have it written wrong.

    she’s TIED with eve (who has 15) in third place–
    the only girls with more entries than her at this point are the obvious lil kim and missy.

    the record that she’s SET AND BROKEN is the female rap artist with the most entries on the hot 100 for ANY GIVEN WEEK–at first she did it with 4, then 5, then 6, now 7.

    there has NEVER been a female rapper in the HISTORY of american music to have SEVEN songs on the hot 100 at ONE time–
    and she did it this week when her single ‘right thru me’ and her weezy collaboration ‘what’s wrong with them’ debuted on the chart.

    all you hating ass b****** can eat a d***–
    nearly EVERY female rapper has a whole CAREER made out of collaborations.

    hell–
    kim wouldn’t have a grammy if it weren’t for a COLLABORATION.

    so how about we dooooon’t, guys? : )

  11. Mo Money October 8, 2010

    Kim is the first female rapper to have a #1 single on the hot 100 but I guess since she only has one verse on the song it’s not hers.

    LADY MERMALADE

  12. Mo Money October 8, 2010

    I think thats most in a year.

  13. KAT DELUNA FAN October 8, 2010

    All the songs Nicki was on entered because those artists are big stars.The songs will chart anyway.Nicki was on Automatic with TEAIRRA MARI ,she kills it but the song never entered the HOT100.This failure is not Nicki’s fault and all the sucess mentionned here are not Nicki’s.The end ….

    We are talkin about Nicki,why you guys want to put others people in the topic.Cant you defend the girl w/o Kimmy s name.

    NICKI SETS THE RECORDS FOR THE MOST NUMBERS OF COMMENTS ON TGJ/INTERNET A DAY.Anybody set a record somewhere

  14. YAWN October 8, 2010

    I love Nicki just as much as the next b**** does!

    BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I AM NOT HERE FOR THE RIDING OF COAT TAILS OR BANDWAGON OF OTHER ARTISTS. IM HERE FOR THE GIRLS WHO GRIND IT OUT AND GET RECORDS, ACHIEVEMENTS AND SUCCESS (MORESO) ON THERE OWN AND NOT OFF THE PIGGYBACKING OF OTHERS. #JUS SAYING!

    MISSY, KIM ETC…THESE ARE WOMEN WHO DID IT AS LEAD ARTIST, SOLE ARTIST, MAIN ARTIST OVER 75% OF THE TIME. IF THEY HAD FEATURES IT WAS PEOPLE ON “THEIR” RECORD, NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND…

    WHILE ITS SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE, ITS NOT ANYTHING TO GIVE TOO MUCH IMO.

  15. Madea October 8, 2010

    THIS B**** WILL BE FOREVER A PROMISE.

  16. carl October 8, 2010

    YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS U BETTER CONTINUE TO SLAY QUEEN OF HIP HOP!!!

  17. honesty October 8, 2010

    hahaha.
    you all are so pressed.

    it’s sad.

    it doesn’t matter.

    a feature is a FEATURE–
    it doesn’t matter who’s the lead artist.

    how about we get into the fact that one of nicki’s BIGGEST hits is ‘your love’, a SOLO single that went top 20 on the hot 100, and #1 on the rap charts–
    something a LOT of your favorite female rappers DON’T have.

    and seeing as how she’s only really RELEASED one solo song, her track record is DAMNED good already.

    stop the hate, people–
    it makes you look pressed as f***.

  18. Star October 8, 2010

    Not trying to know her s*** but the ONLY song that woulda been dumb without Nicki woulda been Bottoms Up by Trey. but those other artist are BIG NAMES in HipHop and Reggae so it was already going to top the charts… just sayin.

  19. RosaRubbel October 8, 2010

    I like Nicki, but this ‘record’ is just ridiculous. She still has to prove herself.
    The same goes for Rihanna & her so called #1’s…

  20. sugar honey ice tea October 8, 2010

    what about Check it out (50) and Right thru me (74).. her two new singles that have made the hot 100 …..

  21. Love success October 8, 2010

    Dont hate her cuz you aint her! Wow…You haters kill me. Like her or not…Nicki Minaj is changing the face of rap. Do your homework- EVERY heavy in the rap industry has praised Nicki Minaj and her talents from Jay-Z to Snoop to Busta Rhymes and so on…IF ‘you’ don’t care for Nicki Minaj, Cool…thats your choice BUT to deny she is the ‘NEW STAR IN THE RAP SKY’ is ridiculous. Nicki Minaj is wearing the crown now…so deal wit’ it!

  22. X,Y,”and Z” October 8, 2010

    THEM B****** IS HER SONS…!!!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT…!!

  23. UMMM………… October 8, 2010

    UMMM…………I just don’t see how a person who has yet to release her 1st CD can receive accolade after accolade???? Something fishy is going on here! The BOUGHT & PAID for music industry has really begun to crack. Now everyone is becoming hip to the game. Talent……..LO….. WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? The record label with the most money dictates what you hear on the radio and the video’s you see on TV………UMMM!

  24. UMMM………… October 8, 2010

    I agree with @Kat Deluna & @Futurestardelux! They did the same with Rihanna. She allegedly has 7 #1 songs but most of hers are also based on being a feature! I guess Billboard is on some different “ISH”?

    Damn, I miss LIL KIM!

  25. Blue Kid October 8, 2010

    The same fishy shyt when Rihanna song went from 75 to 3 on the top 100 before it got air play.

    Something fishy, you asking are telling me, because I been saying something was fishy.

  26. Blue Kid October 8, 2010

    At this point Nas may have a better chance at making a come back before lil kim! I’m not holding my breath!

  27. You Go Girl October 8, 2010

    WOW! And she receives writing credit. You go girl.

  28. Lil Shawty October 8, 2010

    Stop hatin!!! U jus mad cuz u dnt hav wha she has!!! So bun out!!!!

  29. NAS ( B Rockah Stan 4eva) October 8, 2010

    For a minute I thought she has released her album which has already sold 1mil in a day……eyes rolls.

  30. mike October 8, 2010

    Wait!!! Ther’s more! “Check It Out” & “Right Through Me” are both charted on the Hot 100 so she raised the bar even higher than u said!

  31. Robier October 8, 2010

    Bs.

  32. Jae October 8, 2010

    I guess being an IMPOSTER pays off.

  33. DJ October 8, 2010

    i find her sad and pathetic, she was terrible also like rihanna at the 2010 VMA’S she was lip singing O.o WHO does that….. well justin bieber did that same night also, but she looked a reck her face just smuthered in make up all her hair looked pathetic and ughhh thats sad she only has (1) solo song so basically this website failed at making a report,because it wasn’t her who made it to the bilboard top it was the artist who just used her lame ass in there song………

  34. PINK FRIDAY NOV 23RD October 8, 2010

    NIKKI RULES!!! HATERS STAY LOSIN

  35. vee October 9, 2010

    nicki has had 15 hot 100 entries since decmener of last year its just this week she has 7 entries all in one week thats the record… shes tied with eve for most entries over all in 3rd place kim and missy are in front kim by not that much she will probably have beaten kim by early 2011

  36. J October 9, 2010

    UMMM Said it best all of you people who base your lovew of music and artists on marketing ploys are funny. This is another funny accolade. Nicki has a genius marketing campaign behind her. She is to be credited for that!!! I find it funny that your love was on the radio for weeks and then suddenly shot to number one. Even when Love the Way you lie was number one every where else including the pop charts they decided it wasd not a rap song until she had a decent enough run on the rap charts then thats when it suddenly hit number one on the rap charts as well. No records or accollades can be trusted nowadays records sales have dwindled to a level where its more profitable to embellish the “it” girls record than it is to let her flop. Look at it realistically Lil Wayne Rebirth went gold so it is beneficial to him to try to maintain a dynasty. Wayne, Drake and Nicki and everyone at Young Money are doing everything not to end up like Murder Inc. Remember Ja, LLoyd, and Ashanti. Ashanti’s first album went triple platinum but look at her now. Ja was once the reigning it man in rap look at him now , So everybody dont sweat it we know music young money is the it crew right now but this too shall pass.

  37. reallover October 9, 2010

    It a matter of time before this music industry will be exposed. And if they don’t then the people wil get hip to what is going on and will not be buying their music. Just like Rihanna song went from 75 to #3. Seems like they don’t care if people know. Well at least something came out the deal for Nicki, she got her b***, hip and breast enhanced. I mean she put to much it look like a donkeys ass.

    Anywho this is a serious matter with the music industry maybe this why that guy was so upset and wrote that letter to Def Jam. People this is just the begining I have a feeling it going to get ugly

  38. lola October 9, 2010

    Hate her or love her, Nicki is EXTREMELY SMART! Nicki knew that being animated with her voice, making goofy faces, and wearing colorful and ghetto outfits would get her successful. It’s funny to see who the next big music star will be and it’s funny to see who doesn’t make it. She has urban crossover hits because they are extremely catchy and young. It’s all about catering to the young audience now-a-days. I like Nicki as a person and I see the potential in her to be a great serious rapper because I have her last mixtape, but she goes overboard with her over the top image and ugly outfits, ut she’s just doing what a lot of people like and what to see.

    It seems like she’s been taking notes from Lady Gaga and even Rihanna. She and Rihanna can be compared in some ways because they keep on snatching number 1s and people question their talent, but one thing Nicki has done that Rihanna has not is create her whole image, write her own songs, and think of ways to get her name out. Rihanna was lucky enough to have a good a** fashion stylist, hair stylist, publicist to start big rumors about her, and DefJam/Jay-Z to put so much time and money into her. Rihanna did not create her images by herself. She had some say, but it was mainly everyone else who molded her. I don’t think it’s fair for her or any music artist to be credited with number 1’s or breaking history with songs they’re only featured on. It’s a difference if it’s a duet or if you produced the song and featured yourself on it, but it’s ridiculous that Nicki and Rihanna are known for having all these hit singles that’s not even their own. Instead, they should get recognition for being a featured artist on hit singles, not getting all the credit like it’s only them on the song.
