Nicki Minaj is going down in music history thanks to her new smash hit single “Anaconda.”
“Anaconda” is currently sitting at No. 19 on Billboard Hot 100 chart after making its debut a week ago.
According to Yahoo Music, Nicki Minaj surpassed Michael Jackson with 51 chart entries on Billboard Hot 100.
Nicki Minaj thanked her fans on Instagram while touting the achievement.
“Made history today,” Nicki wrote. “I didn’t even know I was tied with Michael Jackson with 50 Hot 100 entries on Billboard. Anaconda makes 51 and now I’m tied with Rod Stewart. God bless, and thank you.”
Nicki Minaj now ties with Rod Stewart for 51 Billboard Hot 100 songs.
While Michael Jackson did that over several decades, Nicki Minaj first Billboard Hot 100 single came in February 2010 when she was a featured artist on Lil Wayne’s “Knockout” single.
“Anaconda” is the second single off Nicki Minaj forthcoming album The PinkPrint, due later this year.
Nicki Minaj says there are no guest features on the album so far.
The Trinidadian rapper is also gearing up to perform “Anaconda” on MTV Video Music Awards, VMA, on August 24 at the Forum in Inglewood, CA.
Nicki Minaj is also visible on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with “Bang Bang” a single she recorded with Jessie J and Ariana Grande. That song is currently sitting at No. 9 on the chart.
