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.
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.
