Nicki Minaj Makes History with “Super Bass”

Nicki Minaj will remember this moment for life as she has just made rap history!

The Young Money artist’s single “Super Bass” has become the highest charted song by a female rapper on the popular Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.

Billboard reports:

With its 4-3 rise on the Billboard Hot 100 chart last week (Aug. 13 chart date), the Young Money/Cash Money single became the highest-charting Hot 100 rap hit by a solo female (without the aid of a featured artist) since Missy Elliott’s “Work It” reached No. 2 in 2002. ‘Work’ spent 10 straight weeks stuck in the runner-up slot.

“Nicki isn’t like any other female rapper,” gushed Cash Money co-founder/co-CEO Ronald ‘Slim’ Williams. “We knew she had the goods when Lil Wayne signed her. She’s not a female rapper — she’s a pop star who happens to rap.”

In addition to Missy Elliott (who also charted at #7 in 2007 with “Get Ur Freak On”), Other lady rappers who have reached the top 10 include M.I.A. (#4 — “Paper Planes” — 2008), Lil Mama (#10 — “Lip Gloss” — 2007), Lauryn Hill​ (#1 — “Doo Wop (That Thing)” — 1998) and Da Brat (#6 — “Funkdafied” — 1994).

Lil Kim, however, has never had a solo single to chart higher than 16. Poor thing.
