This year saw Ice Spice score multiple Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. As a result, Billboard has named Ice Spice as the outlet’s 2023 R&B/Hip-Hop Rookie Of The Year.

“I have put in so much hard work, and it means a lot to be recognized for it and have more than just plaques to show for it,” Spice told the long-running music magazine.

Ice Spice started 2023 by linking up with British singer PinkPantheress for the “Boy’s a Liar Pt. 2” collaboration, which peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100.

Ice Spice also connected with rap superstar Nicki Minaj for two songs this year. Both “Princess Diana” (No. 4) and “Barbie World” (No. 7) made it into the Hot 100’s Top 10.

Taylor Swift embraced the rap upstart as well. The 12x-Grammy Award winner tapped Spice for “Karma,” which just missed the top spot on the Hot 100, landing at No. 2.

The Like..? EP rapper has the chance to pick up four Grammys at the February 2024 ceremony: Best New Artist, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Rap Song and Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Billboard also released its Top New Artists year-end chart. Ice Spice placed at No. 4 behind country singer Zach Bryan (No. 1), Latin singer Peso Pluma (No. 2) and country singer Bailey Zimmerman (No. 3).

Ice Spice also finished at No. 5 on 2023’s Hot 100 Artists – Female chart. R&B vocalist SZA led that list. Taylor Swift (No. 2), Miley Cyrus (No. 3) and Olivia Rodrigo (No. 4) rounded out the rest of the Top 5.

Latto Is First Rapper With No. 1 Song on Billboard Hot 100 Chart in 2023 Thanks to BTS’ Jung Kook

Latto Is First Rapper With No. 1 Song on Billboard Hot 100 Chart in 2023 Thanks to BTS’ Jung Kook

Latto hit the jackpot with “Seven,” her new collab with BTS’ Jung Kook, which has risen to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, marking the first time a rapper has had a No. 1 song on the chart in 2023.

On Monday (July 24), Billboard announced the updated top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, which revealed Jung Kook’s new single “Seven” with Latto is in the top spot. This marks the “Big Energy” rapper’s first No. 1. Jung is now the second member of the K-Pop boy band to have a No. 1 record after Jimin’s “Like Crazy” debuted No. 1 in April. Other rappers with songs on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart include Gunna (“F*kumean), which sits at No. 6., and Lil Durk and J. Cole (“All My Life”), which is No. 10.

It’s been rough sledding for hip-hop in 2023. The genre has only had one album to top the Billboard 200 chart this year, Lil Uzi Vert’s Pink Tape, which dropped on June 30. Last month, Coi Leray called for unity among female rappers and urged them to come together to make 2023’s first No. 1 hit. It looks like Latto hit the winning number first.

March 20, 2017: Five years ago, Nicki Minaj achieved a major milestone in her career that proved she is one of the top hip-hop artists in the rap game. The Queen of hip-hop surpassed the late Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin for having the most Billboard Hot 100 entries by a female artist on this day in 2017.

For the Billboard Hot 100 chart ending April 1, 2017, Nicki Minaj premiered three songs on the tally, “No Frauds,” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne (No. 14), “Regret in Your Tears” (No. 61) and “Changed It” with Lil Wayne (No. 71). This bumped her total up to 76 Hot 100 appearances, which passed Franklin’s total of 73. The late soul singer held the crown for nearly 40 years, until June 18, 1977, before Nicki smashed it.

Following her historic chart achievement, Nicki spoke on her Queen Radio show in 2018 and paid homage to Franklin, who died on Aug. 16, 2018. “It’s no secret she’s an icon—an icon of all icons,” she said. “I don’t know anyone who she hasn’t inspired.”

The Queens, N.Y. rapper, who’s a doting mom of her two-year-old son affectionately named “Papa Bear,” also boasted about her accomplishment on her February 2019 freestyle “Barbie Going Bad,” which samples her ex-boyfriend Meek Mill’s 2018 song “Going Bad” and features Drake. On the song, Nicki raps, “Neck tatt say ‘Onika’/I got more slaps than Aretha.”

And Nicki continued to break records on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after that. On 16 May 2020, Nicki Minaj and Doja Cat became the first female rap duo to rule the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 100 with the “Say So” (Remix). Additionally, on July 18, 2020, the 40-year-old rhymer broke her own record of having the most Billboard Hot 100 entries by a female artist with 110 chart entries.

Many music fans view Mariah Carey as the present queen of Christmas music. The Pop/R&B icon’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” remains one of the most-played songs every year during the holiday season.

“All I Want for Christmas Is You” has also returned to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart every December for the past four years. Mariah Carey’s classic tune held the top spot for three weeks in 2022.

In total, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” controlled the Hot 100 rankings for 11 weeks. That stat makes Mariah Carey the first female artist in history to lead the Hot 100 for at least 11 weeks with three different songs.

Mariah Carey & Boyz II Men Ruled The Hot 100 In The 1990s

Philadelphia-bred R&B group Boyz II Men also has three songs that have remained at #1 for 11 weeks. The Michael Bivins-backed quartet’s “One Sweet Day” with Mariah Carey commanded the Hot 100 for 16 weeks in 1995-1996.

In addition to the “One Sweet Day” and “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singles, Carey’s “We Belong Together” dominated the Hot 100 for 14 weeks in 2005. Boyz II Men also surpassed the 11-week mark with 1992’s “End of the Road” (13 weeks) and 1994’s “I’ll Make Love to You” (14 weeks).

According to Billboard, twenty-eight different songs have held onto the Hot 100’s #1 slot for at least 11 total weeks. 2019’s “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X featuring Billy Ray Cyrus holds the all-time record (19 weeks).

“One Sweet Day” is tied for second place with Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s “Despacito” featuring Justin Bieber. Former One Direction boy band member Harry Styles sits in third with his “As It Was” single (15 weeks). That Harry’s House track is the longest-running Number One for 2022.

Mimi Holds Additional Billboard Hot 100 Records

Mariah Carey has the most overall #1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a solo act. The five-time Grammy winner reached the pinnacle of the chart with 19 different entries. That total is only second to The Beatles (20).
