Minaj leapfrogs the legend for second place among women as "Seeing Green" debuts, and trails only Aretha Franklin as queen of top 10s.
Thanks to three new debuts, Nicki Minaj further extends her record as the woman with the most songs to reach Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, with the count now at 114. Among the new entries, she adds a new top 10 as “Seeing Green,” with Drake and Lil Wayne, debuts at No. 8. The song becomes her 32nd to reach the top 10, passing Janet Jackson for the second-most in the chart's history.
“Green” arrives as the top-selling song of the week, with 33,000 downloads sold in the week ending May 20, according to MRC Data. The figure prompts a No. 1 debut on both the all-genre Digital Song Sales and R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart. It also opens with 21.5 million U.S. streams in the week ending May 20, which translates into a No. 11 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart.
