Billboards Hot 100 is the music industry standard record chart in the United States for songs published weekly by Billboard, an American entertainment media brand.

Other rappers with the distinction are Nicki Minaj with 103 appearances, Lil Wayne with 163 and Drake with an impressive 196 appearances.

JAY-Z also has five additional entries with Beyoncé as The Carters, but those tracks do not count towards his total solo entries.

Of his 100 solo entries, he's topped the chart four times, starting with Mariah Carey's "Heartbreaker" in 1999.

JAY-Z's first entry on the Hot 100 was "Ain't No Ni**a/Dead Presidents" featuring Foxy Brown on April 6, 1996, which peaked at No. 50 two months later.

Blue Ivy Carter, the seven-year-old daughter of Beyonce and Jay-Z, is celebrating a career first this week, as the song in which she is featured, Brown Skin Girl from her mother's new album The Lion King: The Gift, has debuted on the Billboard Top 100 chart.

"Brown skin girl/ your skin just like pearls/ the best thing in the world / I'd never trade you for anybody else", Beyonce sings on the chorus.

Dated for the week of August 3, the track, which also features Beyoncé, Wizkid, and Saint Jhn, has debuted at No. 76, with the album itself debuting at No. 2 as of July 25.

Blue Ivy Carter is getting quite a life lesson from her mogul parents Beyonce and Sean Carter that includes following in their footsteps to create a chart-topping hit on Billboard.
