Nicki Minaj is one step closer to being crowned the queen of Billboard Hot 100.

The Young Money rapper is now the female artist with the second most singles to grace the most prestigious chart in the world. Her collaboration with Major Lazer and PartyNextDoord “Run Up” debut on the chart this week at No. 70 giving her 71 entries on the chart.

At the moment the artist with the most Hot 100 singles is soul legend Aretha Franklin who has 73 entries on the chart and something tells us that Nicki Minaj will eclipse her this year if she releases her new album. Nicki Minaj was previously tied with Taylor Swift at 70 entries, but “Run Up” made her inch past the pop star.

“Oh hey, Taylor – Taylor & I were tied but thanks to u guys, #RunUp debuted on the Hot 100 this week so I was able to inch past her a bit,” Nicki wrote on Instagram. “Did u know she’s a sag like ya girl? Her, Britney, Christina Aguilera… yup love them all #MostHot100EntriesByWomen #sagittariusRULES #ReadyOrNotHereIcome.”

Nicki Minaj is currently working on her fourth album and so far we’ve learned that Gucci Mane, Drake, and Lil Wayne are among some of the artists rumored to be on the project. There is no release date or title of the LP yet.
