Nicki Minaj Snatches Taylor Swift’s Record for Most Hot 100 Hits of All-Time Among Women

Published: Monday 16th Nov 2020 by Rashad

In 2018, Rap queen Nicki Minaj reigned in Hot 100 history books when she became the first female act (of any genre) to collect over 100 hits on the chart.  After only two years of owning the title, however, her “Minajesty” was dethroned by Taylor Swift in August 2020 when all the tunes from the Country-turned-Pop diva’s latest album, ‘folklore,’ were penciled on the tally – pushing her overall chart entry count to 113 (as we reported here).

Swift fans barely had two months to celebrate the win as Nicki tied the total when her remix to Sada Baby‘s ‘Whole Lotta Choppas’ impacted the hit list (as we reported just three weeks ago).

Fast forward to this week, Billboard has confirmed the 37-year-old has powered past Taylor again.

Details inside:

Hours after its long-awaited premiere on November 6, producer extraordinaire Mike Will Made It‘s ‘What That Speed About?!’ (which features Minaj and NBA YoungBoy) bounced to the top of the real-time iTunes sales list (as we reported here).

Maintaining its sales buoyancy over the days that followed, by the end of its inaugural sales tracking period Billboard revealed the tune was the week’s top-selling.


Later confirming ‘Speed’ zoomed into this week’s top 40 (landing at #35), its premiere gives Minaj the edge needed to unseat Swift as owner of ‘most Hot 100 hits of all-time among female artists).

Not only does the GRAMMY nominee now boast 114 overall entries, she also has 60 top 40 hits.

    This is a stupid record to highlight lol

    All you have to do is slap your name on 150 songs and have them reach at least #100 and BOOM, you made a record LOL. Just dumb

    Impressive considering Nicki is a rapper and doesn’t make Lily White Music catered to middle America children and their moms.

    Billionaire Rihanna said she would never collab with Taylor . Badgirlstatus

    Camicky the Clown has been begging Taylor for a collab. Taylor said she has done enough charity work for Camicky by allowing her to open and using her as a prop during her performance 🤣🤣🤣. All that booty kissing in vein

    • DojaCat Say So November 16, 2020

      You forgot to take your psych meds
      You are hallucinating again
      First Taylor wrote a song for Rihanna
      Second Camila is Taylor’s friend

      And where is your flop fave Normanly? Exactly a flop

      • Nicky November 16, 2020

        Lmfao @ Clarkson with another screen name

        If you’re going to use another screen name, change your style of writing pea brain

        Rihanna said she will NOT collab with Taylor. Google it. Using a song that someone wrote is not a collab.

        Camicky wants a Taylor collab but will never get one 😂😂😂😂😂

  3. DojaCat Say So November 16, 2020

    Taylor remain the most charted female with no feature
    But congrats Nicki, Superbass is a good song!

    • November 16, 2020

      why is a Doja Cat fan talking underhand talking sh!t about Nicki and bringing up Superbass like Nicki and the barbs didn’t thank Tyler for randomly promote Superbass.

  4. PinotNoir November 16, 2020

    With features. Big difference.

  5. Payola & Sympathy November 16, 2020

    A black Queen did that y’all racist trolls are mad 😡 we love to see it

    • DojaCat Say So November 16, 2020

      It has nothing to do with race or color. A fact is a fact
      I Stan for Nicki and I’m happy for her

  6. Bodak Yellow November 16, 2020

    Congrats Taylor for being that bish to have the most charted artist without I said WITHOUT

    Nicko Minajjo is still lagging behind Taylor and Aretha 😂🤣😂🤣😂😂😂😂😂😂

  7. Nicky November 16, 2020


    Normanly The Clown will never be any Beyonce of 5H

    No beauty. No talent. No ownership. No voice. Aggressive dancing ability. No stadium shows. No critical acclaim. No real love. McDonald shows. And the list goes on in the scroll.


    I see why the 3 Normanly stans are upset at The gorgeous Camila Cabello

    • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(💫Perfectly Splendid✨) November 16, 2020

      Give it up Clarkson. ItOnly you continuously point out Normani’s “aggressive dancing ability.”

  8. November 16, 2020

    Congrats to Nicki.

  9. Lol November 16, 2020

    Taylor could drop an album tonight if she felt like it and nicki would lose that record. I swear this site acts as if everything nicki does is revolutionary.

    • Payola & Sympathy November 16, 2020

      You hate Nicki Minaj but keep coming back to this site you’re a weirdo

      • Lol November 16, 2020

        I never said I hated her you dumb ass b****.

  10. whhyyte n blackk bicthess November 16, 2020

    you know she the f***** queen you dirty bum b****** know….yikes

  11. Phillystarr November 16, 2020

    Nicki’s catalogue is trash! Most of her entries are because of her being a featured artist. Solo wise she is hanging by thin thread.

    • RnBee November 16, 2020

      No lies told 🙏🏻 all those entries and I could probably name about 5.

  12. Misty Knight November 17, 2020

    Most of these songs ARE NOT HITS. They are “Drive-by” songs that shoot in for a week or two and than disappear. Same for Taylor. A bunch of songs land in the top 100 the week the album is released, and due to streaming, they hit #83 for a week. NOT A HIT.

  13. Truth Be Told November 17, 2020

    I wonder what Nicki Minaj’s end goal is. I actually feel sorry for her. She has no musical direction at all. Yes, she has the record for the most “hits,” but the majority of her songs are “hits” that nobody even remembers unless they are barbz. They are not songs that will stand the test of time. People used to accuse Rihanna of being a hit chaser, and she definitely used to chase the hits, but the majority of her songs are memorable. Nicki Minaj can’t claim that.

    Nicki Minaj needs to retire. Even Rihanna decided to step away and make some money outside of music. Nicki Minaj has proven that she can’t make a classic rap song or classic hip hop album. She wanted to be the new Lil Kim so bad, but Kim is a legend because her material is timeless. Nicki has no classics. She has shown that the best thing she can do is jump on everybody’s song and deliver the same tired bars over and over again. It’s time to raise that child and leave the music for the new girls. Cardi and Megan have got it from here.

    • Malcolm November 18, 2020

      I’m a Cardi fan but lyrically speaking you can’t talk s*** about Nicki and then end by saying Cardi B and Meg got it from here when neither one has ground breaking bars. I’m not a. BARB at all but I call it like I see it. Cardi has yet to give me a verse like Nicki did with MONSTER. And on each feature she does the song sells because she’s on it. Most of the songs she does she’s putting other artist on to get a seat at the table and chart. Lyrically Lil Kim fell off ages ago long before Nicki came

    • M January 1, 2021

      But they don’t have charts for that 🤣
