Nicki Minaj Bests Aretha Franklin for Most Hot 100 Hits By Female Artist

Nicki Minaj established a new record for most Hot 100 hits by a female artist Monday. Minaj’s three new songs all landed on the Billboard chart, giving the rapper a total of 76 Hot 100 entries, breaking the record of 73 she previously held with Aretha Franklin.

“Man, I tell ya… God said he ain’t done showing off yet. Lol. Walked off stage to find out history was made yet again today,” Minaj wrote on Instagram Monday.

“I now hold the title of most Hot 100 entries in the HISTORY of BILLBOARD among women of EVERY genre. To my fans: I fkn love u guys more than I’ll ever be able to put in words.”

Minaj’s “No Frauds” (Number 14), “Regret in Your Tears” (Number 61) and “Changed It” (Number 71) all debuted in the Hot 100 Monday to give Minaj the record, which the rapper set in only seven years of charting: Her first Hot 100 entry was her February 2010 guest appearance on Lil Wayne’s “Knockout,” Billboard reports.

Despite the 76 Hot 100 singles, Minaj has never reached Number One on the chart, with “Anaconda” her best showing at Number Two. Franklin, however, topped the Hot 100 twice with “Respect” and “I Knew You Were Waiting for Me.” Behind Minaj and Frankin, Taylor Swift is lurking with 70 Hot 100 singles.

Minaj also celebrated her Hot 100 reign in her own unique way:

The cast of Glee holds the record for most Hot 100 appearances with 207, while Lil Wayne holds the record for male artists with 135, although Drake – with 133 – should pass Wayne by this time next week thanks to More Life.

See Red Hot Chili Peppers Honor Chuck Berry With 'Johnny B. Goode' Cover

Red Hot Chili Peppers paid tribute to Chuck Berry Saturday night during the band’s concert in Vancouver with a surprise cover of the rock pioneer’s breakout single “Johnny B. Goode” following Berry’s death

The band’s electrifying rendition of the song segued into the Chili Peppers’ “Me and My Friends.” Later, drummer Chad Smith tweeted a photo of him and Berry backstage at a 2008 concert.

Red Hot Chili Peppers were among a half-dozen artists who strayed from their usual set lists this weekend to honor Berry with a “Johnny B. Goode” cover.

Green Day also performed the 1958 classic at their London, Ontario gig. Sting (at a winery), Bon Jovi (at a Columbus, Ohio concert), Gene Simmons (at his first ever solo show) and the Roots (at SXSW) each performed “Johnny B. Goode” – Number Seven on Rolling Stone‘s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time – at their respective shows.

“We lost Chuck Berry yesterday,” Sting wrote on Instagram Sunday next to a snippet of his solo acoustic rendition of “Johnny B. Goode.” “Without Chuck Berry, there’s no Rolling Stones, there’s no Beatles, there’s no me. He was an incredibly influential musician and amazing lyricist. Though I’d never sung this song before, I wanted to find a way to pay tribute to him because we owe him so much.”

Paul McCartney on Chuck Berry: 'He Was a Magician'

In a reflective tribute to the late Chuck Berry, Paul McCartney honored the rock icon’s massive influence on the Beatles’ formative music. “To us, he was a magician making music that was exotic, yet normal, at the same time,” the singer wrote on his website. “We learnt so many things from him which led us into a dream world of rock & roll music.”

While admitting it’s “not really possible to sum up what he meant to all us young guys growing up in Liverpool,” McCartney pinpointed a few signature moments that demonstrated Berry’s genius as a guitarist and lyricist. “From the first minute we heard the great guitar intro to ‘Sweet Little Sixteen,’ we became fans of the great Chuck Berry,” he continued. “His stories were more like poems than lyrics – the likes of ‘Johnny B. Goode’ or ‘Maybellene.'”

The former Beatle also recalled meeting his rock idol in Berry’s hometown, St. Louis, during a tour stop. “It’s a memory I will cherish forever,” he said, calling him “one of rock & roll’s greatest poets.”

The Beatles covered one of Berry’s signature hits, 1956’s “Roll Over Beethoven,” on their second LP, 1963’s With the Beatles. They also added their own spin to “Rock and Roll Music” on 1964’s Beatles for Sale.

The Fab Four frequently paid tribute to Berry during their touring years. The 1994 Live at the BBC compilation includes versions of “Too Much Monkey Business,” “Carol,” “Johnny B. Goode,” “Memphis, Tennessee,” “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “I Got to Find My Baby.”

Fellow Beatle John Lennon was an enthusiastic Chuck Berry fan throughout his life. In 1972, the duo performed together (alongside Yoko Ono) and sat down for an interview on The Mike Douglas Show.

After Berry’s death on Saturday at age 90, numerous high-profile artists penned tributes reflecting on his legacy. The Rolling Stones called him “a brilliant guitarist, singer and performer” and “most importantly … a master craftsman as a songwriter.” Bruce Springsteen deemed him “rock’s greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock & roll writer who ever lived,” while Brian Wilson noted that Berry “taught me how to write rock & roll melodies.”

Paul McCartney’s Tribute to Chuck Berry

“Chuck Berry sadly passed away over the weekend. He was one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest poets. He will be missed but remembered by everyone who ever loved rock ‘n’ roll.

“From the first minute we heard the great guitar intro to ‘Sweet Little Sixteen’ we became fans of the great Chuck Berry. His stories were more like poems than lyrics – the likes of ‘Johnny B Goode’ or ‘Maybellene’. To us he was a magician making music that was exotic yet normal at the same time. We learnt so many things from him which led us into a dream world of rock ‘n’ roll music.

“Chuck was and is forever more one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest legends all over the world. I was privileged to meet him in his home town St Louis when I played there on tour and it’s a memory I will cherish forever. It’s not really possible to sum up what he meant to all us young guys growing up in Liverpool but I can give it a try.”

Watch Green Day Cover Chuck Berry's 'Johnny B. Goode' Live

Green Day paid tribute to the late Chuck Berry on Sunday with a ferocious live version of “Johnny B. Goode” in London, Ontario. Rocker Billie Joe Armstrong led the band with a snarling delivery, backed by clattering drum fills and a wailing saxophone solo.

Since Berry died on Saturday at age 90, high-profile artists have written tributes to the late rock and roll founder. The Rolling Stones, devoted Berry admirers, wrote that they were “deeply saddened.” “Chuck was not only a brilliant guitarist, singer and performer, but most importantly, he was a master craftsman as a songwriter,” the band wrote. “His songs will live forever.”

Paul McCartney called Berry “one of rock & roll’s greatest poets,” and Bruce Springsteen deemed him “rock’s greatest practitioner, guitarist, and the greatest pure rock & roll writer who ever lived.” Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson told Rolling Stone he was “shocked” after learning the news of Berry’s death. “It kind of scared me. I don’t know why it scared me, but it was just a shock.”
