Billboard: Nicki Minaj Surpasses Aretha Franklin


Billboard: Nicki Minaj Surpasses Aretha Franklin

Welcome to the new world …

The TIDAL X co-founder and Super Bass star officially surpassed that of music legend and Respect singer – Aretha Franklin, this week, to become the only female artist in history to have appeared more than 75 times on the Billboard Hot 100.

Nicki Minaj makes history […] as she passes Aretha Franklin for the most total appearances among women in the chart’s 58-year history,” the publication announced Monday.

Onika’s trio of recent releases: No Frauds (feat. Drake), Regret in Your Tears and Changed It ultimately worked to push Minaj over the line for a total haul of 76 career appearances on Billboard’s weekly-updating, heat-seekers chart.

“Franklin had held the mark for the most Hot 100 visits among women all to herself for nearly 40 years: from June 18, 1977 (when “Break It to Me Gently” debuted as her 54th appearance, lifting her ahead of the prior record-holder among women, Connie Francis) through March 11, 2017,” Billboard explains.
