Nicki Minaj Now Holds the Record for the Most Hot 100 Hits by a Female Artist

The rapper beats out Aretha Franklin for the title.

After making it on the cover of TIME last year as one of the “100 Most Influential People,” Nicki Minaj now makes headlines once again. This time around, the rapper is recognized by Billboard for breaking the all-time record for the most Hot 100 hits by a female artist: she now holds 76 hits. Prior to this, Aretha Franklin had held the top spot for 40 years with 73 hits — this is an impressive feat, considering the chart itself has only been in existence for 58 years.

Nicki’s record-breaking move is largely thanks to her recent singles: “Regret In Your Tears,” “Changed It” featuring Lil Wayne, and “No Frauds” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne. You can head over here to listen to the tracks.
