Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass”: The Biggest Single By A Female Rapper Since 2002

Love her or hate her, Queens native Nicki Minaj is making history once again as her single “Super Bass” is making its way to the top of the charts.

With its 4-3 rise on the Billboard Hot 100 chart last week (Aug. 13 chart date), the YMCMB femcee single “Super Brass” became the highest-charting Hot 100 rap hit by a solo female (without the aid of a featured artist) since Missy Elliott’s “Work It” reached No. 2 in 2002. “Work” spent 10 straight weeks stuck in the runner-up slot.

Nicki isn’t like any other female rapper,” says Cash Money co-founder/co-CEO Ronald “Slim” Williams, “We knew she had the goods when Lil Wayne signed her. She’s not a female rapper — she’s a pop star who happens to rap.

“Super Brass” is also just the eighth rap single by a solo female to reach the top 10 in the chart’s 53-year history.

Aside from “Super” and “Work It,” here are the other six single lady rappers’ hits who reached the top 10:

M.I.A., “Paper Planes” (No. 4; Sept. 27, 2008)
Lil Mama, “Lip Gloss” (No. 10; June 30, 2007)
Missy Elliott, “Get Ur Freak On” (No. 7; June 30, 2001)
Lauryn Hill, “Doo Wop (That Thing)” (No. 1; Nov. 14, 1998)
Da Brat, “Funkdafied” (No. 6; Aug. 13, 1994)
Neneh Cherry, “Buffalo Stance” (No. 3; June 24, 1989)
