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.
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).
