Nicki Minaj continues to dominate the charts. The rapper has scored her 56th entry on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with her latest single, “Only” featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown.  The single debuts at #16.

The song also sits atop the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs chart, selling 76,000 downloads in its opening week, according to Nielsen SoundScan, marking her fifth No. 1 on the list.   It comes in at #64 on the overall Hot 100 singles chart.

According to the publication, the song’s appearance on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart extends Wayne’s record for most top 20 appearances on it, becoming his 56th. It also pushes Drake out of a three-way tie with Jay Z and R. Kelly for the second-most top 20s — Drake now has 47 hits.

Nicki expressed her gratitude via Instagram, in which she posted a screenshot of her impressive tally.

S/O to ROCK CITY, JMIKE & Doctor Luke for my 55th hot 100 entry in the US. #5 out of all female artists. #Blessed. Thank you. #ONLY,” she wrote in the caption.

The track is the latest offering from Minaj’s upcoming set The Pinkprint, due out December 15.
