Nicki Minaj has tied Beyoncé for the most number of songs by women to reach the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, Billboard reports. The news comes as Minaj's "Chun Li" hits Number 8 on the chart, her 30th entry to reach the Top 10 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop, matching Beyoncé. The track is also Minaj's first solo project to reach the Top 10 since 2014's "Anaconda," which makes sense, given that the song, along with "Barbie Tingz," are the first singles from her forthcoming album, the first since 2014's The Pinkprint, from which "Anaconda" came.

Billboard also notes that Minaj's Top 10 entries have hit Number 1 9 out of 30 times, placing her third in women to do the same thing. Beyoncé leads that record with 12 Number 1s, while Rihanna claims 10.
