Hot 100: Nicki Minaj Quietly Tied A MAJOR Whitney Houston Record with Her Historic 23rd Top 10 Hit ‘Barbie World’

Published: Friday 14th Jul 2023 by Rashad

When it comes to breaking chart records, few can boast a more royal track record than Rap Queen Nicki Minaj.

As if being the first female act (of any genre) to collect 100 Hot 100 hits wasn’t enough to brag about, she is listed as the most top 10 and top 20 hit-decorated female rapper in the chart’s 64-year history – a title she extended last week with the #7 debut of the Ice Spice-assisted ‘Barbie World.’

Spotlighting the latter point, Minaj banked her 23rd top 10 hit with the ‘Barbie’ arrival – not only extending her record among female rappers but putting her in some pretty exclusive company overall.

See what we mean inside.

‘Barbie’ may have bounced to #35 on this week’s Hot 100, but with her 23rd print in the tally’s topmost dectet Nicki tied late Pop icon Whitney Houston‘s record on the all-time list of most top 10s (among women).

Sharing sixth place, the only five female acts to possess more hits of the same stature are Taylor Swift (41), Madonna (38), Rihanna (32), Mariah Carey (28), and Janet Jackson (27).

Having already collected two top 10s this year alone (the first being the Ice Spice duet ‘Princess Diana‘), the rate at which the Harajuku Barbie is amassing the placements could easily see her break the tie before 2023’s end and be well on her way to being the first female rapper to own 30 top 10 hits.

      This just goes to show how much Nicki’s stats are a joke

      • #TruthHurtz July 14, 2023

        The highlight of this is “female rapper”. You can’t necessarily compare Nicki to pop culture as a whole because it wouldn’t make sense. But you can do is congratulate her for success in her era.

    Only the QUEEN

  3. Meg Theeee Stally July 14, 2023

    But answer this why do her songs always freefall in the 2nd week. Anyone know?

    • Josh July 15, 2023

      Because her fans are broke. They need to save up and buy her a Grammy.

    • UHoesFunny July 15, 2023
