This Week In SoulBounce: Drake Meets Sade, Tamar Braxton Leaves Epic, Wyclef Jean Gets Falsely Arrested & More

Nicki Minaj Passes Aretha Franklin For Billboard Record

As we reported before, raptress Nicki Minaj and soul legend Aretha Franklin were once tied for the most Hot 100 hits by a female artist. While Aretha got hers the old-fashioned way as the lead artist on an awe-inducing 73 Hot 100 hits, Nicki's came by way of a combination of her solo material and her myriad of features on other artists' tracks. Now, after releasing three singles a couple weeks back, the "No Frauds" rapper has knocked the Queen of Soul from the throne, usurping her with three additional hits that bring Nicki's tally to 76. While the way she got there is slightly dubious, we don't begrudge her the accolade. It looks like the feat had Nicki feeling pretty damn good, though, as she and her super-long weave shared a celebratory twerk with her fans via IG in honor of the accomplishment. #CongratsWeGuess
