Nicki Minaj’s appearance on Major Lazer’s “Run Up” earned her an impressive chart distinction: She alone trails Aretha Franklin for most Billboard entries by a woman with 71 (Franklin has 73).

Nicki and Taylor have remained on positive terms since their dust-up over the 2015 VMA nominations boiled over on Twitter. They very publicly reconciled during the show.
