Nicki Minaj has sights on Aretha Franklin's hits record

Nicki Minaj has broken a tie with Taylor Swift to become the second most prolific female in Billboard's Hot 100 chart.

The hip-hop star has landed her 70th Hot 100 hit by debuting Black Barbies, her reworking of rap brothers Rae Sremmurd's hit Black Beatles, at 65 on the new countdown.

That's one more than Swift and just three behind Aretha Franklin.

Black Barbies is also the new chart's highest debut this week.
