Nicki Minaj‘s name was already etched in history books for leaving her nearest female competitors – Taylor Swift and Aretha Franklin – in the dust as she was crowned the woman with the most Hot 100 appearances.
Now, ahead of reports she’ll be kicking off this year’s People’s Choice Awards with a live performance (November 11), the people have reminded Billboard that they are still very much in love with the Harajuku Barbie. Proof is found in the the rapstress’s latest Hot 100 entry as co-star of Tyga‘s new hit, ‘Dip.’
The feature brings with it news that Minaj is the first and only female artist in history to see her name on the Hot 100 at least 100 times. Details inside…
In the 8 years since her Hot 100 debut courtesy of Lil Wayne‘s ‘Knockout,’ Minaj has accrued 99 other entries as lead act or feature. 17 of those appearances landed in the top 10 with the 2014 hit, ‘Anaconda,’ being her career peak (#2).
