Nicki Minaj Breaks Aretha Franklin's Record


Nicki Minaj celebrates breaking Aretha Franklin's record for Most Hits on the Billboard Hot 100 by a woman...

This week Nicki Minaj debuted three songs on the Billboard Hot 100, 'No Frauds at No.14, Regret in Your Tears at No. 61 and Changed It at No. 71.

Nicki now has 76 Billboard Hot 100 hits surpassing Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin's 73.

The pop star commemorated her milestone with a celebratory Twerk.



Fun Fact: Aretha Franklin was the only featured singer on all 73 of her Billboard 100 entries while more than half of Nicki's entries have occurred when she was featured on someone else's song.

It's a sad day in music.

Pathetic. Nicki will never touch Aretha and what Aretha did for r and b music. No 16 bars BS. Full songs on the piano and vocals. SMH

Didn't they say the same thing about Rihanna just a few days ago?? Im confused.

I believe Billboard's decision to count streaming data in their charting stats was to erase all traces of real artistry and talent from music history with computerized voices. Pretty soon performers will be computerized images like in that movie S1m0ne and Nicki's services will no longer be needed.

I guess Nikki is saying that her record speaks for her.

I'm just glad that when Aretha feels she has reason to celebrate we don't have to see her twerking over it on the Internet.

As someone said on another thread: "In 100 years conservatories will be teaching and celebrating Aretha Franklin's music. The composition and arrangement are second to none. Nikki Minaj won't even be a footnote. Sales mean nothing in relation to talent and I say this as a former "Barb" (I can't believe I was corny enough to call myself that.) I'm finally awake: Nikki's music is garbage and the music industry that supports her is corrupt and dying."

7:49 please say it again for the people in the cheap seats! These are faux stats just like her azz. Is it the record companies or Nikki's people (who are one in the same) trying to convince us that Nikki is "iconic." As they use to say on C&D "She needs more people" because no one believes this. Nikki has about 6 more months until irrelevancy hits and the Devil comes to collect her soul.

Did Aretha have features and guest appearances oin all her albums? This is fraud, if NM didn't do it on her own, like Rhi.

Wow at the fact that she becomes this person and she acknowledges it by posting a twerk video. And y'all hoes think she is a role model? Talented? GTFOH. Garbage music by a fool that can't write her own ish and is quietly losing steam. Please stop the bafoonery black people...smh.

Nicki is weird to me. I have never understood the hype. I'm sure Aretha not too bothered by this. I once took a class on gospel music. wow ree ree early stuff is amazing. she would literally hold a note for a minute. nicki gets winded after 16 bars.

Mariah said how many of those hits are number 1s though... Ooops. Congrats Nicki

lolol

This thirsty industry tries real hard, though.

Many of Nicki fans don't even know or can even appreciate Aretha Franklin's body of work. All they hear is that their favorite celebrity
broke records by an old school ARTIST, and their heads, like their butts and lips and boobs, get swole.

Guess who ain't sweating these numbers or this so-called, or manufactured accomplishments:

ARETHA FRANKLIN!

ha!

Dream on and whatever floats your boobs, honey, because NOTHING any celebrated celebrity today tops anything done by the founding and today's legends of the old schools. I don't care how many numbers are crunched.

Nicki Garbaj Minaj should NEVER EVER be used in the same sentence as Aretha Franklin.

These millenials thing the whole world is stupid, making up facts and stats.

I get it fans. You grew up with the highest self esteem hearing things like: you're so great; you're special; I love you; you are amazing, etc.

I hear that. As parents of millenials we were trying to build up your self esteem because, as your parents, we and your ancestors had been beaten down for filth. We tried to raise you up by trying to keep you believing in yourself, despite our skin tone, gender, sexuality, etc.

Now your damned self-esteem is too daggone high! To compare Nicki Garbaj to Aretha Franklin on any level is just BS.

Aretha sings, writes, inspires, plays instruments, and has been doing so since she been knee high to a grasshopper. How in the hell could Aretha's body of work be compared to this fraud Barbie with obscenely grotesque body parts, who been ethered beyond filth by facts.

Now yall trying to build her up by crunching those numbers to make it appear like she's iconic or legendary, or something.

Please, have several seats . . .
Crunching numbers and alternating the facts doesn't make you iconic or legendary. It's just thirst, plain and simple. All icons after Janet and Michael Jackson are wannabe icons. Everyone after them from Justin timberFake on down are wanna bes, including Beyonce. Anybody who aspires to be an icon has failed miserably. And that would be to most anyone in the music industry.

The music is so watered down and the lyrics are so dumb and the bar is so low, ANYBODY can get a top spot in any venue or on any agenda. Experience, talent, qualifications mean NOTHING these days.

Can you say "Donald Trump"?

This is a joke. Ok, so did she pass Rihanna, too?! That would be a more just comparison.

But those PR machines really try it, though.

@8:22 I think it's moreso making streaming the new version of album sales, which is what you said. And It's seems more economical because it saves the industry money from manufacturing hard copies. But, not really to completely eradicate old physical copies because you have (some) older buyers that still purchase physical copies. So this is more of a cost benefit analysis. Also, you still have very talented artists that have streamed music but you just have to search. Overall, although streamed music seems more economical and accessible, it does seem like its robbing the accomplishments of others who gave it their all to get their accomplishments.
