Chart Check: Nicki Minaj Ties Taylor Swift’s Record for Most Hot 100 Hits (Among Women)

Published: Tuesday 27th Oct 2020 by Rashad

2018 may have seen Nicki Minaj make history for becoming the first woman in Hot 100 history to amass over 100 hits on the chart, but she only held the record for two years before it was snatched by Pop diva Taylor Swift in August 2020 (as we reported here).

Now, after a brief abdication it appears the ‘Queen’ rapstress is looking to reclaim her throne.

Details inside:

Relative Rap newcomer Sada Baby had already amassed a minor hit with his breakthrough single, ‘Whole Lotta Choppas,’ thanks to a growing response on Tik Tok but after Minaj threw her queenly spin on the ‘Whoomp! There It Is!’-sampled tune it became a top 40 hit.

Entering the chart at #35 on this week’s Hot 100 (with a Nicki credit attached), the entry becomes the femcee’s 59th top 40 hit and 113th entry on the chart overall – tying Swift’s historic record among women in the process.

Among all artists, the ladies are locked in fourth place and follow Drake (228), Glee Cast (207), and Lil Wayne (170).

    That’s not hard when you hop on every god damn song there is and spit about the same tired ass topics over and over again. Quality over quantity is all I will say.

    If Janet, Madonna, Whitney, Mariah, etc. had the benefit of the digital era when they were at the top of their game, they would be way over the 100 “hit” mark. Every track from their big releases would have debuted in the Hot 100 AND they would be the star, not a feature. Back then, they EARNED hits instead of benefiting from the digital delivery system.

      This argument is tired. It’s been argued and overstated to death. The year 2020, not 1986.

      • Misty Knight October 27, 2020

        You’re tired and not smart enough to understand that argument is SOUND.

    • Pat October 27, 2020

      They are fine. Most of their hits are solo. These hop on features are not impressive

    • Zo October 27, 2020

      Facts and we had no choice but to purchase their music .they did it all without streaming and 99 cent singles.i remember paying damn near 3 bucks a artist only make money off tours or other stuff who buy music anymore it’s crap

    • QUEENDOM October 27, 2020

      Another Nicki accomplishment, winning while in her off season with a newborn. A true Queen

    It’s noteworthy that Taylor accomplished this with all her own music. She doesn’t do features. Nicki in the other hand hops on so many records, many of which already made it to hot 100 before her verse….so it’s not surprising or hard at all for her to have that many hot 100 entries.

      Exactly smoke and mirrors

      • Gag Order October 27, 2020

        How is it smoke and mirrors when these artists ask her to get on the tracks? Y’all love to hate that woman..couldn’t be me hating on people for no reason

    • King z October 27, 2020


      Please retire the “features” argument cuz it’s just as tired and thoo as the “1986 v 2020” argument (as you call it)

      Most of nick’s features are hits BECAUSE she featured on them. Sada song is an example of this

      She deserves to be credited

      There are tons of other artists who feature on a lot of songs and don’t have as many hits (Jeremih, 2 chainz, ty dolla sign). Featuring is a hip hop thing. Nobody complains when drake does it

      • Clarkson October 27, 2020

        Ummm they do complain with Drake does it.

        They complained when Lil Wayne did it.

        They complained when Chris Brown did it.

        Oversaturation is a thing and people hate it.

        Those male artists aren’t discussed on here because this blog focuses on pop and flop divas.

        Nicki isn’t a victim.

      • Meme October 27, 2020

        Ppl do complain when make artist do it tho , Future and Wayne for example. And don’t get me wrong, I am a Nicki fan and I agree the songs are hits because of her. But you 62417 can’t compare taylor’s accomplishment. It’s not the same.

    Another win for Nicki 🥳

  5. Your Name October 27, 2020

    I couldn’t name 10 Nicki songs off the top of my head. Her music is so forgettable!!

    • AllTAllShade October 27, 2020

      Who? 😭

    • Gag Order October 27, 2020

      Now you know you’re lying and I like her

    • UHoesFunny October 27, 2020

      You don’t even believe that 😭😂😂

  8. WerQ October 27, 2020

    Nicki’s accomplishments as a solo artist are unimpressive AF. Her biggest solo/lead hits were pop songs. 🥴 I’ll give Nicki props for her features because they’re always more litt than her solo work. Sorry, NOTTTTT sorry🤷‍♂️

  9. Renee October 27, 2020

    I love gossiping!!!!!!!
