"Feeling Myself" is a song by Nicki Minaj from third studio album The Pinkprint. It features guest vocals by Beyoncé. Due to strong digital sales, the song debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at #43 simultaneously with "Get On Your Knees" debuting at #88, gaining her 57th and 58th Hot 100 entries. By doing so, she became the female artist with the third most entries, behind only Aretha Franklin (73) and Taylor Swift (66).
