Guess who’s on top of her game, Barbz? It’s your girl Nicki Minaj.
The rapper just made history a few hours ago by beating Aretha Franklin’s previous record for the most Billboard Hot 100 hits by a woman. After releasing three songs this month, the 34-year-old earned 76 hits while Franklin’s record held strong for almost 40 years with an impressive 73 chart-toppers. Now that’s outstanding!
All three of Minaj’s most recent hits were dropped on March 10 – “No Frauds,” “Regret in Your Tears” and “Changed It”. Ms. Minaj herself has already spoken about the historical moment, based on this peachy Instagram post:
Pretty sure Nicki knew that this was in the works, based on previous social media postings. Her ongoing feud with Remy Ma had her posting the following message on social media directed at the 36-year-old rapper : “I love my fans. Y’all the real MVP’s. Been writing my own raps since I was 11. GOD knows. Next week I’ll beat Aretha for the most Hot 100 hits on billboard by ANY woman in the world EVER in the history of music. Stay in your bum a– place. Jealousy gets u no where,”
She continued, “”Love to all my bad btchs. Now I got a countdown of my own for Sheneneh. U got 72 hours to drop a hit and I’ll give u half a million dollars if you can book ANY show or interview w/o mentioning the Queen name. On another note, my album is nothing but waves. Lol my babies, you’re gonna get your complete LIFE. love u guys so fkn much. Let’s go.”
Despite the beef, congratulations are still in order for Nicki’s historical win. Great job, Ms. Minaj!
