Nicki and Ariana Grande's "Bed" was the track that did it.
Nicki Minaj already holds the record for most Hot 100 entries among women, and she continues to climb towards the overall record. With "Bed," the Ariana Grande-assisted single from her upcoming album Queen, Minaj has earned her 91st Hot 100 entry, tying James Brown's total. This means there are only 6 artists ahead of her at this point, including her regular collaborators Drake and Lil Wayne. Minaj is two spots ahead of Taylor Swift in overall totals, who currently holds 77 Hot 100 entries.
For years, the record has been held by Glee Cast with a whopping 207 entries. Seeing that the show is no longer on the air, it seems it's only a matter of time before the total is surpassed. Drake, who has the second-highest total (164), just released his 25-track album Scorpion. It is possible many of the tracks from the album, if not all, will make next week's Hot 100. If that's the case, he will be one step closer to overtaking the Glee Cast record.
