Sorry, Taylor Swift! Nicki Minaj Now Has The Second-Most Hot 100 Hits Among Women

February 8, 2017 By Jordan Miller

Nicki is happy.


Nicki Minaj boasted about her latest feat in a new post on Instagram.

“Oh hey, Taylor? – Taylor & I were tied but thanks to u guys, #RunUp debuted on the Hot 100 this week so I was able to inch past her a bit???,” she said. “Did u know she’s a sag like ya girl? Her, Britney, Christina Aguilera… ?yup ?? love them all☺️? #MostHot100EntriesByWomen #sagittariusRULES ? #ReadyOrNotHereIcome ?”


Nicki Minaj is only a few releases away from having the most Hot 100 hits by a woman ever.

Nicki had a rough week. Her L.A. mansion was robbed of $200K worth of jewelry and property, and she got into a public spat with shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti, but here’s something to celebrate: her new feature on Major Lazer’s “Run Up” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR gave the rap queen her 71st entry on the Billboard Hot 100, one more than Taylor Swift’s total (70), Billboard reports. She’s only behind Aretha Franklin, who has 73.

It’s worth mentioning out of all of the entries, Nicki is credited as a lead artist on 27 of them, and featured on 44. Swift is the lead on 67 of her 70 total entries, and Franklin is the lead on all 73. Nonetheless, a huge accomplishment!
