Beyonce Passes Nicki Minaj for most Top 10 hits by a woman on mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop charts with “Top Off”. DJ Khaled’s “Top Off” featuring Jay-Z, Future, and Beyoncé has jumped into the top 10 of the Mainstream R&B/Hip Hop chart. The chart dated as of April 7 shows a 13 to 9 jump for the song. According to Nielsen Music the leap can be credited to a 14 percent increase in plays in the week ending April 1st.
