Nicki Minaj Ties Aretha Franklin For Most Hot 100 Hits

Published: Wednesday 8th Mar 2017 by Nehemiah

Nicki Minaj‘s lack of response to her rap foe isn’t handing her any ‘Ls.’ At least not on the charts.

Since the fallout, Minaj has proceeded to eclipse her rival’s shine by setting a singles record across the pond. And now she’s stands toe-to-toe with the mother of soul Aretha Franklin for the most hot 100 hits amongst women.

Full story below…

So, which single gave her the boost?

The release of ‘Make Love‘ with Gucci Mane pushed the head Barb in Charge eye-to-eye to the industry icon, matching Franklin’s 73 count entries to the Hot 100.

Though the ‘Pills n Potions‘ hitmaker matches the vocalist’s entry count, Nicki is only billed as the lead artist on 29 of her Hot 100 100 entries, whereas Aretha has been credited as the lead on all 73 of her hot 100 hits.

Notably, the 34-year-old is the only female rapper that sits atop with the most entries, which her gives her more to material to lace her already braggadocious rhymes.

    angry f.ags In 5 4 3 2…

    • Jamie March 8, 2017

      How many of those entries were solo singles, how many actually went to number one, and how many garnered her any grammys? Ok, and your self hatred should seriously be evaluated.

      • The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017


      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        i don’t care to argue or debate with you nor your fake deep points of view. gangnam style was number one too. so #1 doesn’t indicate validity. If her having this many hits off of features alone then that indicates demand for her doesn’t it? exactly. jamie i don’t like you. at all. you’re annoying and i guarantee that you’ll literally respond with another reply instead of simply not f***** talking to me at all. p*** off.

      • The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017

        Danzou doesn’t care to argue against a FACT. She is tired of getting scalped by her unabashed loyalty to Nicki.

      • Swit Katz March 8, 2017

        Jamie number one singles mean nothing that’s a lame excuse stop hating

      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        @thewig see what i mean? you’re a “scalped?” lol that is shït. I’m tired of it. get an OBJECTIVE point of view to hold without all the lingo them come to me. funny how yall will sit and shade women all day then turn around and cry when you get critically picked apart, objectively. and the best defense you can come up with is self hate? hahhahahh omg like the need for validation on this site is SO pathetic.

      • F.Y.Gently March 8, 2017

        What a bad way to talk, as if being gay was a bad thing. Are you homophobic? Maybe that your ex-boyfriend left you for another guy? You’re clearly not a smart person but that’s okay Danzou, the world needs people like you to highlight the depth of the ditch that separates you from others, and that’s an objective point of view 😉

      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        @fyi you’re only further proving my point. it’s not that deep but for validation and up voting you still commented to a person who doesn’t care. i don’t CARE. yet you were obviously bothered enough to attempt to clapback. like…its sad.

      • Rosy March 8, 2017

        I know she did it with a lot of artist Aretha was by herself

    • Ciah’s Turtle March 8, 2017

      Yo Danzou, why these b!tches so pressed b?

      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        @ciah i have NO clue but it’s annoying. they dont even see that if this was a dej loaf or young ma post that that wouldn’t care.

      • Ciah’s Turtle March 8, 2017

        @Dan They love to hate sis. I’m convinced that ppl just want to see the end of Nicki Minaj, which is why they gassed Remy and look at her now..Coppin a Plea. Nicki ain’t goin no where. These b!tches can’t get her spot til she start raising some children.

      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        @Ci she on them fofos she tippin they better move out her way????

      • Kwinzy March 8, 2017

        Look at these two pigeons chirpin’ to each other. Hilarious. *throws bread crumbs*

    • Fancy BISH March 8, 2017

      Who upset Prince Akeem aka Danzou? His royal lowness seems rather tense and pressed today lol…shouldn’t he be happy of the achievements of one of his rose bearers, Nicki Minaj? Queen Aretha remains unbothered!

      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        you’re upset obviously cuz you wouldn’t be commenting and you wouldn’t be telling this lame ass joke for an up vote. further proving my point about validation. you’re not funny. you’re not witty. you’re not clever. lol like…wtf.

      • Fancy BISH March 8, 2017

        My apologies, your royal lowness lol

    • Jamie March 8, 2017

      Danny boy, I do not give a fukk if your slow a** like me or not with your five people per class a**. Deal with the fall of your fave’s non-existent empire.

    • Jasmine March 8, 2017

      @Danzou Nicki has more fans than haters so why not just congratulate her instead of worrying what others think. You write numerous comments on this post that come off as attacks against people with different opinions but you forgot to congratulate Nicki on a new accomplishment.

  2. The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017

    Microwaveable rappers are able to do that in such short time. Good for Nicki.

    • Swit Katz March 8, 2017

      You didn’t say the same about rihanna surpassing Michael Jackson though atleast nicki writes some stuff. Rihanna is handed everything yet gets all the credit

    • Ms. Frenzy March 8, 2017

      Why does Nicki Minaj have everybody so pressed? If she’s so fake, microwaveable, and can’t rap… why are you all so interested in her? Jealousy is a mf and ppl just love to tear down those that are on top. Whether you like her or not, dislike her fans, or whatever else… she’s undeniably winning. Just deal with it.

  3. Cbeylive March 8, 2017

    Danzou no need for names

    • Danzou March 8, 2017

      yes it is

    • The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017

      That’s just Danzou’s self-description for the past week. Pay her no mind.

  4. Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

    How many of them are her songs? Features are fine, but when it’s over 60% of these “hits” aren’t hers outside of a 16, then eh, not impressed.

    • B2B March 8, 2017

      Same could be said about Rih for Gramy wins…. 4/8 are features…. 50 %

      • The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017

        But, almost all of Rih’s global #1 hits has her as the leading artist. Try again, sis.

      • Mark111 March 8, 2017

        That’s still 4 more Grammys that Nicki doesn’t have.

    • Swit Katz March 8, 2017

      Rihanna’s fans can’t complain about anything she has very few solo hits. she cant do it by herself

      • Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

        You clearly can’t count.

  5. DanYiel Iman March 8, 2017

    It isn’t like she isn’t a Kettle Corn rapper who adds her tones to anyone to become the biggest FRAUD IN LIFE..??‍♂️

  6. Stephy March 8, 2017

    Just because a song charts on the Hot 100 doesn’t mean it’s a hit. Also, we have to take into consideration that during the 80s and 90s, Billboard changed their rules (as they always do) and made it that only actual singles could chart. But congrats to Nicki. I think Lil Wayne holds the record for most charted singles for a male solo act.

    • SMH March 8, 2017

      Billboard didn’t start changing their rules until the 2000’s which allowed half of these women to get credit for songs they only featured on. This list would be ALOT smaller had they kept it the way it was, where artists actually earned their hits on their own.

      • Stephy March 8, 2017

        True. It’s like they’re desperately making it easier for these young acts. It was way harder back then

      • blue March 8, 2017

        actually it was way easier for established acts to get hits then it is today.

    • Suicide Blonde March 8, 2017

      Thank you Stephy.

    • Lana Lover March 8, 2017

      Stay hater

    • Danzou March 8, 2017

      it does mean it’s a hit. there’s literally a bubbling under chart for songs that don’t even make it TO the 100. but whatever helps you sleep at night.

      • Jeans March 8, 2017

        Exactly. Good for her but nothing to write home about. A hot 100 entry is not that impressive. how many actual hits does she have on the Hot 100? Not that many. Next

      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        She has 29 of her own how many do YOU have h**?

    • Ciah’s Turtle March 8, 2017

      We don’t have to take anything into consideration. All this post is saying is Nicki is tied with Aretha Franklin for the most Hot 100 entries. Why you b!tches are dissecting and trying to derail from the sole purpose of the post is completely beyond me.

  7. SMH March 8, 2017

    Sorry, Billboard changing their rules to enable these lesser artists don’t count. Only here for LEAD artists and their FEATURE-LESS LEAD singles. Which chops half of these “artists” off the list.

    • Swit Katz March 8, 2017

      Nicki and Beyonce are the only ones doing it for you blacks yet you’re complaining? why do you hate these two so much yet praise rihanna who’s a disgrace to women and an awful representation of black women bcoz she’s a walking stereotype?

      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        @swit don’t do this cuz i don’t wanna have to hurt you. stay on subject.

      • 4u2see March 8, 2017

        You’re just rac!St or a c*** and telling on yourself. You’re part of the many that have an agenda for stereotyping , ” hot sauce in my bag”, ” stupid h**.” REALLY!


    When Nicki bowed down to Lauryn, I started to liker her, she was so sweet and humble, unlike the other one who recorded a song titled bow down, but never achieved Diamond sales or an AOTY like Lauryn did.

    • Sasha Banks AKA THE BO$$ March 8, 2017

      Get a grip stupid. ><

  9. sam is TRASH March 8, 2017


  10. Sasha Banks AKA THE BO$$ March 8, 2017

    And can we count how many of them went number 1? *Checks nails as I wait for a response* ><

    • Ciah’s Turtle March 8, 2017

      Aretha has 41 albums and only two #1 singles and didn’t get the 1st one until her 19th album. So plz, ok?

      • Danzou March 8, 2017

        @ciah THANK YOU

      • Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

        Answer the quetion, how many of Nicki singles went #1?

      • Ciah’s Turtle March 9, 2017

        @mark B|tch, You know the answer to the question. What’s the point?

  11. The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017

    TGJ is obviously on Nicki’s payroll. I ain’t hating. Pay that rent!!!

    • Danzou March 8, 2017

      and stay in your BUM ASS PLACE

      • The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017

        I will because your mama is paying my rent.

      • The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017

        I wanna fight you. Where do you live?

  12. Lana Lover March 8, 2017

    Not Nicki slaying Bey and Rih

    • blue March 8, 2017

      nicki might have more entries but rihanna and beyonce have more actual hits.

    • The Wig Snatcher March 8, 2017

      but when will Lana???

  13. mikey March 8, 2017

    If Mariah, Whitney or Madonna could have had songs to randomly chart when albums were released – so like Beyonce had a whole album of songs on the hot 100 the week Lemonade came out….then his record would be so out of reach for anyone.

    I find it ridiculous that Billboard compares different eras working under different chart rules. Its unfair. Aretha got that record few features and when songs had to officially be released as singles to chart.

    The accomplishments just shouldn’t be considered the same!

    • Danzou March 8, 2017

      Aretha was releasing albums year after year. not diminishing her hard work but she was pushing a lot of music. these days you can’t just make music. you have to promote and make videos. Aretha wasnt doing all that. She was making albums and releasing them back to back not charting then touring worldwide for months at a time.

  14. Danzou March 8, 2017

    yall so mad but look at these comments as well as the ones on previous posts. you’re f.aggots. if nicki was a man you would be in awe. but because she’s a woman your first instict is to “gag” and “ki” which makes you f.ags. take an objective look at yourselves as people and be real. drake posts never look like this. neither do lil Wayne posts. neither do any other rapper posts cuz yall are f.ags. NO ONE here rally cares about the culture especially when it comes to hip hop except MAYBE kwinzy and a few other black commenters. other than that yall only come here to get up voted and validated.

  15. Swit Katz March 8, 2017

    Jealous broke peasants everywhere. As for rihanna fans complaining your queen has many features than lead number 1 singles. She’s also the payola queen so back off nicki you pathetic hypocrites

    • Datredd23 March 8, 2017

      Please DO NOT go there!!! The girl just got her 30th top 10 with her own song off an album released a year later! With no promo mind you and no video! Stay reaching!

  16. #TeamTinashe Stan (Tinashe Is Coming Soon!!) March 8, 2017

    I would congratulate although I feel like the majority of her songs these days have been sub-par but how is Billboard going to compare the past to the present with the way how things have changed in this era?

    We now have streaming that is being counted towards the charts I don’t think (I know) that Aretha’s era had streaming available. It doesn’t make sense but oh well lol hehe.

    • Danzou March 8, 2017

      u SHOULD congratulate seeing as this person is the reason your fave had a job two years ago. and STILL can’t release yet.

  17. Queen Barb March 8, 2017

    So many jealous haters OMG

    Yo Nicki is winning no one can take that away

    Remy playing catch up Nicki been a beast Nicki been a legend.

    • Danzou March 8, 2017

      29 of them are hers to claim on her own which is huge for girls in hip hop. the thing is that THIS is only the hot 100. In the rap hip hop and r&b charts she holds even more records. so hey let them hate.

  18. Kimbella March 8, 2017

    I love seeing Nicki ahead of Rihanna and Beyonce. A beautiful sight too see..

    • Danzou March 8, 2017

      let’s not put them against each other please

  19. ALT-stan March 8, 2017

    She is also tied with Aretha in the number of diss-track responses dropped this year……

    • Ciah’s Turtle March 8, 2017


      • ALT-stan March 8, 2017

        You hear them crickets loud AF in that hallway of a sphincter you got, huh?

      • Ciah’s Turtle March 9, 2017

        crickets again bi+ch

  20. Ciah’s Turtle March 8, 2017


  21. Max March 8, 2017

    It’s clear that at this point she’s just releasing these single features just to break Auntie Aretha’s record but congrats I guess .

    • JustCoastWitHa March 8, 2017

      No one’s as one track minded as you. Sorry.

    • Kwinzy March 8, 2017

      Exactly. Nicki’s team mad sneaky. Thinking breaking records is something iconic. She ain’t never been for the culture. What’s been “accomplished” in 8 years can NEVER trump 50 years of Aretha’s legacy through song. How has Nicki’s music impacted hip hop? *crickets* FOH

      • Ciah’s Turtle March 8, 2017

        “Thinking breaking records is something iconic.”
        You sound so damn stupid lmao

      • Kwinzy March 8, 2017

        LMAO @ your bank account. Nicki gon have the most Billboard entries without a #1 Hot100 single. You ain’t know that’s WORST record a artist could have? Even if she ends up copping one, the way her ratio is set-up…Lol! Most REAL artists have at least one #1 record per era. Laugh it up.

      • Ciah’s Turtle March 9, 2017

        I will laugh, because you still sound fvcking stupid.

  22. JOHNVIDAL March 8, 2017

    LMAO!!! As hilarious as Katy Perry or Rihanna tying anything with the name of Michael Jackson in it. An obvious and inflated joke.

    • Danzou March 8, 2017

      not as hilarious as the joke in your avi h** get real.

      • Kwinzy March 8, 2017

        That “joke” in the avi starred in groundbreaking, Oscar worthy Black box office movies. Not some annoying ass secretary or a thot who creeps with Common in a barbershop closet. So pressed and try hard.

      • JOHNVIDAL March 9, 2017

        A joke my avi??? You think extremely talented people are a joke then? No wonder why you spend your life stanning for RIHANNA LMAO seriously!

    • blue March 8, 2017

      the joke is that you think michael jackson’s billboard achievements mean any more then the significance that billboard gives them?

    • Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

      Rihanna is not tied with MJ with anything… she passed him on all the records she was tied with.

  23. Danzou March 8, 2017

    All in all i know aretha is somewhere SEETHING

    • Fancy BISH March 8, 2017

      Queen Aretha is somewhere fixing a delicious plate…she’s eating Legendary Shrimp with a side of icon!

  24. Fashion Icon March 8, 2017


  25. Mark111 /.\ March 8, 2017

    The only thing that bothers me is that now an artist can drop a single/video/album and from 1st week hype, chart (some times high) and fall right off on the 2nd week. Night Long is a flop, but it’s a top 40 because of the hype of the album release. Gags Million Excuses is a top 10, even tho it was only there for a week after the SB hype. I’m just saying to ME, a hit has to be in the top 40 for at least 3 weeks.

    • blue March 8, 2017

      the problem is that you a associate a song’s peak with whether it was a hit or not. its just like this record for nicki, she has that many hot 100 entries not hits and thats all the record says.

    • King B March 9, 2017

      Not all top tens or number ones are hits. You Raise Me Up, Uptown Girl, Listen are more popular, more well known, more covered than idk S&M? SOS? Take A Bow? despite the low peak or failed entry. Nirvana highest peaking single #6. Coldplay only had a few top tens, and of course the Legendary Abba who was a flop or maybe average in US. Few decades later, ABBA’s albums are still charting, their songs are remembered. For Barbra and Céline, they have no problem selling albums and tours. Meanwhile, hitmakers like Mariah and Janet are completely irrelavant once they lose their singles power.

    • JOHNVIDAL March 9, 2017

      Miilion Reasons is a hit then you fool. It has been in the top10 of REAL sales for weeks and weeks.

  26. Danzou March 8, 2017

    kwinzy said every real artist has at least one number one each era yet Beyonce hasn’t had one I over eight years. so watch him seethe on my comments with excuses and all these fake deep responses. I’m so sick of him.

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler March 8, 2017

      At least Beyonce has several. Remy Ma even has one.

  27. Rihboy March 8, 2017

    Most entries is the ki though! Anyone can do that when they jump on everyone’s song!

    • JOHNVIDAL March 9, 2017

      Ask Rihanna and her 7 releases per year for an entire decade lol All these girls are basic and their stats too. No matter how they try to hide it with singles charts.

  28. Alex March 8, 2017

    @propaganda shut the f*** up!! She in unbothered with her 22 Grammys!! How many does your fave have??

  29. @ASAPicon March 8, 2017

    congratz Nicki

  30. King B March 9, 2017

    What’s Beyonce doing there? She can’t sell singles. She only had 6 albums and she’s still on the list. The rest of the artist either have more than 10 albums or 638393003 features.

  31. Niggro Please March 9, 2017

    At the top once again. Six Sags on the list I see. Interesting.

  32. ItsWNow at youfr best game way tuesidnz March 10, 2017
