Nicki Minaj the First Woman With 4 Simultaneous Top 10 Hits on Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Chart

“Truffle Butter” is now No. 1 on the chart.

Nicki Minaj becomes the first female artist to chart four songs simultaneously in the top 10 of Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart (dated March 28), as “Feeling Myself,” featuring Beyonce, rises 11-10. Two males had previously achieved the record: Lil Wayne (first in 2008) and Drake (2011), each of whom has quadrupled up in the top 10 in multiple weeks.

Minaj scores additional success, as “Truffle Butter” — fittingly featuring fellow record-holders and Young Money/Cash Money/Republic labelmates Drake and Lil Wayne — steps 2-1 to crown the chart. It’s Minaj’s sixth No. 1 on the chart and Drake’s record-extending 21st. Lil Wayne adds his 18th No. 1, second only to Drake’s sum.

Nicki Minaj KMart Clothing Line Is Crazier Than We Expected

“I’m doing this for women in general to feel beautiful and sexy. Any woman can wear it and feel confident,” Nicki Minaj says in a new behind-the-scenes video about her forthcoming KMart clothing collection.

While we love the sentiment, it’s going to take an extraordinary amount of confidence to rock a skin-tight mini dress, a puffy vest and bedazzled captain hat–at the same time. However, that seems to be exactly the over-the-top look Nicki is going for with her first fashion collaboration. Add some printed leggings, babyboll dresses, bold blazers, metallic bustiers and you’ve got yourself a celebrity clothing line that’s more flashy than classy.

In the “Shop Your Way” clip, the 30-year-old rapper-cum-designer gushes over the garish garments and explains that she didn’t want fans to think she’d only be producing “crazy stuff.” But that’s all we’re seeing. Considering Nicki’s recently makeunder, we thought the line would reflect some of her toned down style, but then again this KMart partnership was inked when the star was still sporting costumes andpasties on a regular basis.

Check out the video above. What do you think of the collection?
