Nicki Minaj Tops Aretha Franklin’s Billboard Record With 76 Hits
Nicki Minaj is feeling her new Billboard record. On Monday, the rapper racked up the most Hot 100 hits of any female artist with 76, besting the previous record set by Aretha Franklin with 73.
Franklin held the record for most Hot 100 tracks for nearly four decades, according to Billboard. But after tying for the title earlier this month, Minaj released three new songs that tipped the scales: “No Frauds” with Drake and Lil Wayne, “Regret in Your Tears” and “Changed It.”
She reacted to the news over Instagram.
“Man, I tell ya… God said he ain’t done showing off yet. Lol. Walked off stage to find out history was made yet again today,” she wrote, before expressing gratitude to her fans.
“I fkn love u guys more than I’ll ever be able to put in words. Thank u so much for your unwavering love & support. God bless each & every one of you.”
