Beyoncé Becomes The Fourth Woman To Score 60 Entries On The Hot 100 Chart

2019 has already been a historic year for the iconic singer-songwriter.

(AllHipHop News) Beyoncé Knowles-Carter has not released a solo studio LP since Lemonade in 2016. However, the megastar continues to remain one of the most relevant entertainers on the planet. She had the whole world talking once again last month with the release of Netflix's Homecoming documentary.

In addition, the leader of the Bey Hive provided her fans with Homecoming: The Live Album which included 40 tracks. One of those records is Beyoncé's cover of "Before I Let Go" by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly. The new version debuted at #75 on the Hot 100.

This gives the founding member of Destiny's Child her 60th entry on the chart. Beyoncé is just the fourth woman to reach that milestone. She joins Nicki Minaj (102), Taylor Swift (78), and Aretha Franklin (73). The cast of Glee has the most appearances (207), and Drake is right behind the Fox television series (193).

Beyoncé has earned six #1 singles and eighteen Top 10 singles on the Hot 100 throughout her career. The record for most cumulative weeks at number one belongs to Elvis Presley and Mariah Carey (79), but Bey's 42 weeks puts her in the group of leading acts for that list.

Earlier this year, Beyoncé won her 23rd Grammy Award. The 37-year-old singer only trails Alison Krauss (27) among female winners, and Knowles-Carter is in eighth place among all-time Grammy recipients. On May 1, she won her 12th and 13th Billboard Music Award, extending her total to a record-tying 23 for female artists.
