Nicki Minaj Sets 'Billboard Hot 100' Record


Nicki Minaj this week became the first female artist to appear 100 times on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The rapper is featured on Tyga’s “Dip,” which debuted at No. 83. Her first time on the Hot 100 was in 2010 with Lil Wayne’s “Knockout.”

Only four other acts have topped 100 visits to the chart: Elvis Presley (108), Lil Wayne (160), Drake (191) and the cast of Glee (207).

The nearest female competitor is Taylor Swift, who has been on the Hot 100 only 77 times.

Minaj is already the female rapper with the most Top 10 hits on the chart.
