Last week, Nicki Minaj dropped three new songs and all of them ended up on the Billboard charts. This gives Nicki 76 total Hot 100 entries, breaking the previous record she previously shared with Aretha Franklin.
The rapper took to Instagram to share her excitement saying, "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. #NoFrauds #RegretInYourTears + #ChangedIt charted this week on Billboard & I now hold the title of most Hot 100 entries in the HISTORY of BILLBOARD among women of EVERY genre. To my fans: I f***in' 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. To God be the glory. #YoungMoney #NickiInLONDON Island girl from South Side Jamaica, QUEENS!!!! NEW YORK CITY!!!!! ð Rrraaaahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!"
Minaj broke the record after only seven years of charting. "No Frauds" (Number 14), "Regret in Your Tears" (Number 61) and "Changed It" (Number 71) all debuted in the Hot 100 Monday to give Minaj the record. Her first Hot 100 entry came in February of 2010 from a guest appearance on Lil Wayne's "Knockout".
Minaj shouldn't get too comfortable however, Taylor Swift sits only six tracks behind her with 70, and there is a strong possibility that the week after Tay Tay's next album drops, all of those songs will enter the chart.
