Taylor Swift Breaks Record for Most Billboard Hot 100 Hits Among Women, Thanks to ‘Folklore’

Taylor Swift breaks the record for the most Billboard Hot 100 entries among women in the chart’s 62-year history. Now with 113, as of the chart dated Aug. 8, she passes Nicki Minaj, with 110.

Swift’s “Cardigan” launches at No. 1 on the Hot 100, as all 16 songs on the standard edition of parent album Folklore debut on the chart, lifting her total from 97 to 113 career charted titles.

Here’s an updated look at the women with the most Hot 100 appearances, dating to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, inception.

Minaj had held the mark for the most Hot 100 entries among women all to herself since April 1, 2017, when she passed Franklin’s sum of 73. (The two were tied the previous two weeks.) Before that, Franklin solely boasted the record for nearly 40 years, starting June 18, 1977 (when “Break It to Me Gently” debuted as her 54th entry, pushing her ahead of the prior record-holder among women, Connie Francis).

Swift has scored the fourth-most Hot 100 entries among all acts, while Minaj now ranks sixth. The leaders overall: Drake (224); Glee Cast (207); Lil Wayne (169); Swift (113); Future (111); and Minaj (110).

Now with 28 Hot 100 top 10s, as she adds three (“Cardigan,” at No. 1; “The 1,” at No. 4; and “Exile,” featuring Bon Iver, at No. 6), Swift ties for the third-most top 10s among women and the sixth-most overall. The acts with the most top 10s: Drake (40); Madonna (38); The Beatles (34); Rihanna (31); Michael Jackson (30); Mariah Carey and Swift (28 each).

Plus, Swift collects 10 new top 40 Hot 100 hits, extending her record among women to 73. She remains in fourth place overall, after Drake (113), Lil Wayne (83) and Elvis Presley (81).

All charts dated Aug. 8 will update tomorrow (Aug. 4) on Billboard.com.
