Soul legend Aretha Franklin has become the first woman to score 100 hits on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart since 1958 thanks to her cover of Adele's Rolling InThe Deep.

The song debuts at number 47, making Franklin only the fourth act to land at least 100 hits on the countdown - she joins rappers Jay Z (127) and Lil Wayne (135) and the Godfather of Soul James Brown (111).

Franklin first hit the chart 54 years ago this month with Today I Sing the Blues, and she last hit the countdown in 2012 with How Long I've Been Waiting.
