2020 Year in Review: Nicki Minaj Made History with Her First Set of Hot 100 #1 Hits & More

Published: Tuesday 8th Dec 2020 by Rashad

Whether penciled in history books for reasons good, bad, ugly, and/or everything in between, 2020 brought with it some of entertainment’s most memorable moments.

Now, as the year draws to a close, That Grape Juice is reflecting on our favorite moments that rocked – and to some degree maybe even reshaped – the Urban and Pop cultural landscape as we know it.

Good things come to those who wait!  Next, we look back at Nicki Minaj‘s historic 2020.

Love her or loathe her, numbers don’t lie.

2020 has been pretty damn good to Nicki Minaj, a feat underscored by her wins on a number of fronts.

The GRAMMY nominee, already penciled in history books for being the first female artist to collect 100 Hot 100 hits, sits in the tally’s record logs for having the most appearances over her career – a title she temporarily held after snatching it back from Taylor Swift in November.

And, while that accomplishment was much to celebrate, her biggest triumph on the hit list came in the spring when she netted her first pair of chart-toppers:  ‘Say So’ (with Doja Cat) and ‘Trollz’ (with 6ix9ine).

The first chart crowning etched her in history books for a myriad of reasons including owning the first all-female Rap duet to top the charts as well as extending her reign as the first female Rap artist to nab a Hot 100 top 20 hit every year eleven years straight.  The latter, on the other hand, rocketed to the top with some of the year’s biggest first-week sales.

The chart victories only added to a year already peppered with success on a professional and personal front that included historic wins at the American Music Awards and giving birth to her first child.

    She’s one of the best rapper out there…

    And she doesn’t kiss any axxes..

    • Susan December 8, 2020

      Make more history? As in having the most songs to free fall in their second week? Longest wait for any artist to get a #1 hit? Yeah, she’s breaking records 😂😂😂

      Meanwhile cardi is the FIRST FEMALE RAPPER to have TWO (2) #1 songs in TWO (2) different decades. Cardi is also the FIRST FEMALE RAPPER to win the Grammy award for best hip hop album. I mean, cardis breaking the records that truly matter, hun 🙃

    • JazmineSullivan December 8, 2020

      LMAO only her troll ass fans give a f*** about Nicki. The general public moved on years ago judging by her low sales and lack of solo #1s. The Barbs so delusional.

      • I hate blaccc n whyyyte December 9, 2020

        Cardi no hits all year without Megan the stallion
        Cardi throwing shoe n tryna fight other latin girls….busting her in the head . Nicki getting AMA fo latin song.. In 2020

  3. Clarks0o0ñ December 8, 2020

    She destroyed her legacy

    Making a fool of herself on queen radio.
    Marrying that registered child m0lester
    Collaborating with 6ix9ine 🤢🤢🤮
    Fighting cardi at that party
    Supporting her ped0 brother

    • Lou-Andrew Rodriguez December 8, 2020

      Cardi was the one who made a fool of herself by not only attempting to throw a shoe but getting that knot on her head by Nicki’s entourage

      • Susan December 8, 2020

        You realize most of Cardis success came after that shoe throwing incident right? 😂 Nicki went on queen radio and thought she was about to end cardis career, little did she know cardi would win her GRAMMY months later! And let’s not forget cardi is the first and ONLY female rapper to have a #1 hit in TWO different decades! And one of cardis #1’s is SOLO!!!! 😂😂 Nicki and that defective couch she has attached to her back are DONE

      • I hate blaccc n whyyyte December 9, 2020

        Little did cardi know a non Spanis.latino girl would have #intl hit and win AMA FOR LATIN MUSIC… WOOOOOOOOOOOOW NIXXX

  4. Susan December 8, 2020

    They were BOUGHT!! Nicki isn’t credited for that Grammy nomination for say so 😂 Trollz is remembered by absolutely nobody. A complete circus her career is

  5. NoLie December 8, 2020

    They weren’t her songs she’s just a feature piggy backing off the success of others (not that any of them are actually talented anyway)

  8. tyty December 8, 2020

    Stop supporting this wench, she is allegedly involved in Intimidating her husbands r*** victim into recanting her story to get her disgusting husband of the s** offenders list. We don’t care about this male-identified pick me.

    • This bish is FANCY!!! December 8, 2020

      We don’t care about you fraudulent f*****

  9. Charli+Cheer+Up December 8, 2020

    Incredible feat for her indeed considering the fact that she made a name for herself by featuring on many artists’ songs. Every artist both big and upcoming she was on one of their songs if u check her discography! The lockdown situation also made it more convinient for her to have a baby and get a #1 with less hassle on promos. Congrats to Nicki Minaj!

    • Susan December 8, 2020

      A Charli stan in 2020? 😂 Your opinion on music is null and void. Even compared to Rita Ora, Charli is the biggest flop in the industry

  10. Nicky December 8, 2020

    Congrats Nicki! Haters gonna hate!

  11. Bl0wMyBu$$y 🤑 December 8, 2020
