Just a few days ago Nicki Minaj became the first female rapper to sell over five millions copies of each of her albums. Of course, that’s an amazing milestone to add to her other successes but today she has lost one title as Beyonce has officially surpassed her with the most Top 10 hits.
Thanks to her feature on DJ Khaled‘s “Top Off,” featuring Jay-Z and Future, Beyonce now has 30 Top 10 tracks, passing Nicki with the most singles on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart since it started in 1993. Her first single to ever make the chart was her and Jay’s 2002 song “’03 Bonnie in Clyde” and she’s successfully been claiming her spot ever since.
When combining both men and women on the chart success, Beyonce places #7 on the list of most Top 10’s with Drake leading the chart with 56, followed by Lil Wayne with 54, Chris Brown with 48, Jay-Z with 35, Usher with 32 and T.I. with 31.
In other news surrounding Bey, she’s set to take the stage at Coachella soon and reports say she’s hired 100 back up dancers for her performance. She apparently only started with 12 but upped the ante. The dancers are sworn to secrecy so we’ll only know the real reason when she takes the stage on Saturday, April 14th.
