Congrats to Nicki Minaj on yet another career high.
The hook of "Swalla" is already one of the most recognizable ones (and easiest to get stuck in your head) out there at the moment, but the video is a candy-coated spectacular that basically looks like Lisa Frank gave the club a makeover and threw in some sugary snacks for good measure. The tracks also sport first-week totals of 12.1 million, 4.4 million and 4.8 million US streams, respectively, in the tracking week.
The cast of Fox's "Glee" has the record for most Hot 100 entries overall with 207.
With this trio of releases, Minaj boasts 76 overall entries while Franklin slides to second with 73.
February 20, 2010 marked Minaj's debut on the chart: She was a featured artist on Lil Wayne's "Knockout", which peaked at No. 44. She first charted as a lead with "Your Love", which reached No. 14 in August 2010. Thanks to her three new songs, "No Frauds", featuring Lil' Wayne and Drake (dubbed the Big 3), "Changed It" featuring Lil' Wayne and "Regret in Your Tears", Onika has now bested the Queen of Soul's 73 appearances on the chart with a total of 76 appearances.
Franklin's span on the Hot 100 stretches from 1961 to 1998. Minaj has only charted with 32 songs as a lead, being featured on 44. Minaj now holds ninth place among all acts for the most Hot 100 appearances, passing Ray Charles, who now ranks 10th with 75 visits.
