Minaj became the first female artist to land 100 songs on the Billboard 100 chart when her and Tyga’s track “Dip,” debuted at the No. 83 spot.
She joins five others, including labelmate Drake, on the esteemed list.
Minaj released her fourth studio album Queen back in August of this year. In an interview with Elle, Minaj said she spent nearly 36 hours in the studio perfecting the album.
“I feel like true icons shift music, uplift music, switch music, have the balls to take a chance,” Minaj told the publication. “I’m such a perfectionist that when something is too easy to me, I actually feel guilty. It would’ve been so easy to listen to all the trap music out there right now and say, ‘Let me just copy this,’ but I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself.”
Queen debuted No. 2, behind Travis Scott’s Astroworld — to the chagrin of Minaj.
Minaj took to Twitter where she accused Scott of using his relationship with Kylie Jenner to promote his latest release. Minaj again expressed her anger in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.
“I felt like I wanted to punch him in his fucking face!” said Nicki. “I’ve had a No. 2 album, and I never cared. It’s just when you have a No. 2 album to someone who’s selling shirts and merch and selling passes for a tour that’s not even announced yet, it feels like you’re being tricked. It feels like someone is playing a game and beating you at a game as opposed to just selling music. I wanna sell music.”
She added, “So I wanna say — he didn’t have the No. 1 album. Queen was the No. 1 album.”
Minaj’s Twitter squabble with Scott is just one of many for the curvy rapper. Most recently, she got into a social media feud with new raptress Cardi B.
