Well, she called it.

In her infamous notice to Remy Ma earlier this month, Nicki Minaj made mention that she was close to surpassing "Aretha for the most Hot 100 hits on billboard by ANY woman in the world EVER in the history of music." Now, the moment is here.

As Billboard reports, Nicki Minaj makes history this week, as she officially passes Aretha Franklin for the most total appearances among women on the Hot 100 chart.

All thanks to her #3PackFromParis, the Queens rapper's recently released three songs debuted on the Hot 100 this week with "No Frauds," featuring Drake and Lil Wayne, hitting No. 14, "Regret in Your Tears" arriving at No. 61, and "Changed It," featuring Lil Wayne, landing at No. 71. This update brings Nicki's total Hot 100 entires to 76, moving past Franklin's career output of 73.

The Lil Wayne vs. Drake show is now the biggest Hot 100 storyline

In addition to Nicki's history-making party, the benchmark also trickles down to her Young Money pals Drake and Lil Wayne, who have been going head to head these past couple of months for most entries on the chart. Last month, Lil Wayne outpaced Drake with his 133rd entry on the Hot 100 to earn the title for most Hot 100 songs among soloists. With two features alongside Nicki, Wayne now has a total of 135 entires while Drake gets his 133th. However, after the release of More Life, it's pretty much inevitable who the title will end up going to next week.

Back to Nicki, as Billboard also notes, the rapper now holds ninth place among all acts for the most Hot 100 appearances, passing Ray Charles, who now ranks 10th with 75 visits.
