While her Young Money counterpart is killing Spotify, Nicki Minaj eyes the Billboard charts to make another mark. With her Queen album scheduled to hit online this coming August, Nicki’s “Bed” single has landed the rap royalty with her 91st entry on the Hot 100 chart.
The Ariana Grande assisted single has tied Nicki Minaj with James Brown for most entries and only has six other artists ahead of her. Within Minaj’s grasp are Jay-Z and Kanye West, who sit with 97 and 92 entries, respectively. There is also some hometeam love in Drake and Lil Wayne on the list who is a ways away holding on to a total of 164 and 138. For Drake, that number may rise rapidly with the success of the 25-track Scorpion album.
As for Nicki, she may also make a large jump in August once Queen arrives. With the support of her fans and the anticipation for her album, it very well may find every track as an entry on the storied chart.
