As previously reported, Nicki Minaj blasts 92-10 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated April 28) with “Chun-Li,” her first top 10 on which she’s unaccompanied by another artist since “Anaconda,” which she took to No. 2 in September 2014.

“Chun-Li” leaps following its first full week of tracking; it debuted on the April 21-dated Hot 100 from a day of streaming and sales tracking and four days of radio airplay monitoring, after its April 12 release. It launches at No. 14 on the Streaming Songs chart (22.1 million U.S. streams in the April 13-19 tracking week, up from 3.5 million in its first day, according to Nielsen Music) and jumps 16-4 on Digital Song Sales (38,000 downloads sold, up from 20,000), as it logs the Hot 100’s top gains in streaming and sales.

Minaj tallies her 16th Hot 100 top 10, extending her record for the most among female rappers; Missy Elliott ranks second with nine.

“Chun-Li” is Minaj’s fourth unassisted Hot 100 top 10. Before “Anaconda,” she made solo trips to the tier with “Starships” and “Super Bass.”

Here is a chronological recap of all 16 of Minaj’s Hot 100 top 10s, a list that includes collaborations with Afrojack, Justin Bieber, Big Sean, Cardi B, Drake, Ariana Grande, David Guetta, Jessie J, Kesha, Madonna, M.I.A., Migos, Bebe Rexha, Trey Songz, Britney Spears and Yo Gotti.
