According to Yahoo!, Minaj has made history by logging her 51st Hot 100 entry with her new offering, “Anaconda,” which entered the chart at #19 this week. Thanks to her 20 solo hits and 31 guest feature on songs, she’s outcharted MJ.  Of course, Michael is credited as the lead or co-lead on all of his 50 charting songs.

“Made history today,” tweeted Minaj, “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 also holds the record for the most Hot 100 hits by a female rapper and is tied with Eminem for seventh place among all rappers.
