Nicki Minaj has a lot to celebrate these days! *pulls out Myx bottles*…The Queens NY don-diva makes history today with the most Hot 100 Hits, which surpasses the late pop icon, Michael Jackson. Check out how Nicki accomplished such a goal, in a short amount of time below…
Yahoo! recently reported, that Nicki Minaj logged her 51st Hot 100 hit, as her new “Anaconda” debuts at #19. Jackson has amassed 50 chart hits, from 1971’s “Got To Be There” to two hits this year: “Slave to the Rhythm” and “Love Never Felt So Good,” a from-the-grave collabo with Justin Timberlake.
Billboard’s new criteria now allows featured appearances, to tally in with self-proclaimed hits as well.
“Anaconda” is just Minaj’s 20th Hot 100 hit as a lead or co-lead artist. The rest of her hits have been factored in as featured credits. Of course, Michael Jackson was in the lead or co-lead spot on all 50 of his Hot 100 hits.
Congrats to Nicki! Again, hard work pays off!
