"No Frauds" debuted at No. 14, "Regret in Your Tears" came in at No. 61 and finally "Changed It" came in at No. 71. Minaj ups her count to 76 career Hot 100 entries, surpassing Franklin's career output of 73.

Nicki Minaj takes the throne as the woman with the most Billboard Hot 100 entries of all time. Prior to this, Franklin had the record for more than 40 years, until Minaj tied the 73 titles last week.

The music video for Derulo and Minaj's song, Swalla, was choreographed by Goebel. The tracks also sport first-week totals of 12.1 million, 4.4 million and 4.8 million USA streams, respectively, in the tracking week. She does maintain it for most songs for a female artist as the lead artist, as Minaj only has 32 of her own cuts and is featured on the other 44.

February 20, 2010 marked Minaj's debut on the chart: She was a featured artist on Lil Wayne's "Knockout", which peaked at No. 44.

Her #3PackFromParis boosts her into the top spot. As of this week, Minaj has placed an incredible 76 different songs with her name attached to them onto the all-encompassing singles tally, and she still has plenty of successful songs in her future. Minaj is currently in ninth place on this list, after passing Ray Charles, who now sits at No. 10 with 75 entries.

The Hot 100 and all charts will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (March 21).
