After debuting at the No. 83 spot as the featured artist on Tyga ‘s track “Drip,” Nicki Minaj became the first female artist to land 100 songs on the Billboard 100 chart.
Minaj’s accomplishment makes her just one of five acts total, male and female, to hit the milestone.
As Billboard notes, the 60+ year old list currently combines streaming, airplay, and sales data to compile the current hottest songs in the country.
They also note that Minaj officially joined the cast of Glee, Drake (for more on Drake’s crazy run be sure to check this out ), Lil Wayne , and Elvis Presley as the only performers to get 100+ mentions on the rundown.
Though worth noting is that Elvis’s number is lower because his career pre-dated the lists’ 1958 debut.
As it stands, the current collection of musicians with the most all-time appearances is, in order:
207, Glee Cast
160, Lil Wayne
108, Elvis Presley
100, Nicki Minaj
93, Kanye West
91, James Brown
90, Chris Brown
77, Taylor Swift
75, Ray Charles
73, Aretha Franklin
71, The Beatles
70, Justin Bieber
All 100 of Minaj’s appearances have come over the course of this decade, with her first such spot coming as a featured artist on Lil Wayne’s “Knockout” back in February 2010.
Nicki dropped her fourth studio album Queen back in August of this year.
