Nicki Minaj Now Has More Hot 100 Entries Than Michael Jackson (But Not As Many As The ‘Glee’ Cast)
Behold: The thunderous impact of “Anaconda”!
Buried at the very end of yesterday’s Billboard news story about MAGIC!‘s continued reign atop the Hot 100 was this little chart factoid: Nicki Minaj officially has more Hot 100 entries than Michael Jackson.
Upon its debut at #19, Mizz Minaj’s A$$-shaking anthem marks her 51st Hot 100 hit, thanks to all of her many features and solo singles, “extending her mark for the most among female rappers (Missy Elliott is next with 31) and tying her with Eminem for the seventh-best total among all rappers; Lil Wayne leads the category with 122. Among all artists, Minaj breaks out of a tie with Michael Jackson and also equals Rod Stewart‘s 51 career Hot 100 entries.”
Of course, this is a monumental feat, but Nicki’s still got a ways to go if she wants to break into the Top 10 of the Most Hot 100 Entries of all time. What do you think of Nicki’s latest achievement?
Check out the full, somewhat surprising roster (as of October of last year) after the jump.
