Nicki Minaj becomes first female with 4 simultaneous Top 10 hits on mainstream R&B/hip-hop chart

Rap sensation Nicki Minaj has set an impressive record in the U.S. on one of Billboard's charts, it has been confirmed. 

The 'Super Bass' hitmaker has now become 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). In addition to this, Minaj is also the first female artist with three simultaneous tracks in the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop top 10 as a lead act. 

The songstress recently told the MailOnline that she finally feels 'free' to do whatever she wants in her career and has the confidence to stick to her guns: "It's very rare that I just get to be on stage and speak from my heart to people who know me. I think this year it's been so much more freeing and maybe because 'The Pinkprint' touches on a lot of things, but I think just as a human being I feel free now and I'm going to continue being free and if that's sharing more then that's what I'll do."

Minaj added: "I felt like I had come to a different space in my life and I realised it's ok to be happy and not really care what people's opinions are because they're going to have opinions no matter what."
