Nicki Minaj Scores 70th Billboard Hot 100 Hit With “Black Barbies”

Only Aretha Franklin stands in the way of Nicki Minaj becoming the woman with the highest number of charting singles ever.

Minaj's latest release titled "Black Barbies," a reinterpretation on Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles," debuted at No. 65 on the Hot 100 this week, giving the MC her 70th Billboard Hot 100 hit – the second-highest number of charting singles for a woman.

She passes Taylor Swift who has 69 total.

Numbers jargon from Billboard:

Notably, Minaj has been credited as a lead artist on 27 of her Hot 100 entries, or 39 percent. Franklin has been the lead on all 73 of hers (with much of her career predating years in which featured billings became common). Among all acts, the cast of Fox's Glee leads with 207 Hot 100 entries, followed by Lil Wayne (132) and Drake (131). Franklin is in 10th place among all acts and Minaj is 12th.

Nicki can enjoy this feat for just a week. Billboard predicts Swift will level the playing field when her Zayn collaboration on "I Don't Wanna Live Forever" debuts on the Hot 100.

Minaj says of the honor: "This list tho> I'm in great company. #70thTop100Hit with #Blackbarbies 😩 love 💟🎀💕😘"
