Minaj’s last solo entry came in March 10th, 2017 when ‘Regret In Your Tears’ peaked at #61 on the Billboard Hot 100. Luckily, it aided in giving her the crown of having the most Billboard Hot 100 entries for a female artist since the charts inception. ‘No Frauds’ and ‘Changed It’ also charted on the same week giving her 3 new debut entries at the time.

Overall, she is the ninth artist with the most Hot 100 entries and the only female artist in the top 10 alongside legendary acts like Elvis Presley, Ray Charles and James Brown.
