Taylor Swift Just Tied With Nicki Minaj In a Major Music-Chart Milestone

Watch out, Aretha Franklin.

We already knew Taylor Swift can set records in her sleep. Now she’s taken it to a whole new level, reaching a major music-chart milestone very few artists get to put on their resumés.

As of this week, Taylor officially has 70 (70!) Billboard Hot 100 singles under her belt. Her latest hit — her collab with Zayn Malik, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” — just debuted at #6. With that, Tay ties for second place on the list of artists with the most Hot 100 hits of all time. Coincidentally, the #2 spot is shared by Nicki Minaj, an artist Taylor clashed with in a Twitter war before the two triumphantly squashed their beef at the 2015 VMAs.

 The only female artist with more Hot 100 hits is Aretha Franklin, who’s scored 73. It’s kind of crazy that Taylor and Nicki are up there with a legend like Aretha when they’ve been on the music scene a fraction of the time. It’s a mind-blowing achievement.

And that’s not all.

Of Taylor’s hits, 20 were Top 10 singles, placing her on a list of only 5 other female artists who have reached or surpassed the 20 mark: Madonna, Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Rihanna, and Whitney Houston.

Long story short: She’s still slaying the game and taking names! Congrats, Tay!

I wish you could see through my eyes, the bigger picture where there is demise. The fruit tastes sweeter when its forbidden. After the swallow you realize it was rotten. If we knew the hands of the future maybe there would be a story untold. _Kakira
