Nicki Minaj becomes the first female artiste to chart four songs simultaneously in the top 10 of Billboard's Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart, as "Feeling Myself," featuring Beyonce, rises 11-10. Two males had previously achieved the record: Lil Wayne (first in 2008) and Drake (2011), each of whom has quadrupled up in the top 10 in multiple weeks.

Minaj scores additional success, as "Truffle Butter" -- fittingly featuring fellow record-holders and Young Money/Cash Money/Republic label mates Drake and Lil Wayne -- steps 2-1 to crown the chart. It's Minaj's sixth No. 1 on the chart and Drake's record-extending 21st. Lil Wayne adds his 18th No. 1, second only to Drake's sum.

As for Minaj's other two songs currently in the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop top 10, snagging her slice of chart history: She rises 4-3 as featured on Rae Sremmurd's "Throw Sum Mo," also featuring Young Thug, while "Only," featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown, slips 8-9 after topping the chart four weeks. "Only" is from Minaj's The Pinkprint, which has sold 553,000 since its December release, according to Nielsen Music.

Apart from her four-song triumph, Minaj becomes the first female with three simultaneous tracks in the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop top 10 as a lead act (thus excluding "Throw Sum Mo"). Three other female acts have notched three simultaneous top 10s (Ashanti, Beyonce and Rihanna), but not as lead artistes on all three songs in those cases.
