Nicki Minaj Has Surpassed Aretha Franklin for the Most Billboard Hot 100 Hits by a Female Artist

Minaj makes history again.

Nicki Minaj recently debuted three new tracks, all three of which locked in spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This ups her count of Billboard Hot 100 entries to 76, beating out Aretha Franklin’s 73 Hot 100 hits. Minaj’s “No Frauds” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne took the No. 14 spot, while “Regret in Your Tears” locked in No. 61 and the Weezy-assisted “Changed It” hit No. 71.

The Queen of Soul kept the title for nearly 40 years since June 18, 1977 when ”Break It to Me Gently” debuted as her 54th appearance. Minaj tied Franklin on March 11, 2017 when her Gucci Mane-featured “Make Love” charted. Check out the updated list of female soloists with the most Billboard Hot 100 hits below.
