Nicki Minaj has surpassed the Queen of Soul as the female artist with the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The 34-year-old rap star beat the record she previously held with Aretha Franklin, 74, on Monday, when Minaj’s new songs "No Frauds,” ”Regret in Your Tears" and "Changed It” hit the Hot 100.
This brings Minaj’s total to 76, making her ninth overall in the chart’s 58-year history. Franklin has 73.
Hot on their heels is Taylor Swift, who has 70 Hot 100 entries.
"Man, I tell ya... God said he ain't done showing off yet. Lol,” Minaj wrote on Instagram after performing at Drake’s show in London. “Walked off stage to find out history was made yet again today.”
Next week, Drake will become the male artist with the most Hot 100 entries, beating Lil Wayne, who currently has 135.
The overall record holder is the cast of Glee, with 207.
