The Barbz have won! After a full week of tracking, Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” debuted at No. 1 on the Hot 100 charts.
Getting Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky” to the top of the genre-blending song charts was no easy feat, considering she was competing against former No. 1s.
This debut has set new records and achievements for Nicki Minaj, who is set to receive her MTV Video Vanguard Award later this month.
After a full week of tracking since its debut last week, Nicki Minaj’s latest single “Super Freaky Girl” has clinched the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100.
Along with the original version, the “Do We Have A Problem” rapper released an explicit version of the song, as well as a clean and explicit version of “Super Freaky Girl (Roman Remix).” The four tracks have occupied the top four positions on the US iTunes chart since the remix debuted.
The release of the “Roman Remix” propels the song to the top, even without the massive boost provided by radio airplay.
According to Luminate, Nicki Minaj’s Hot 100 debut “Super Freaky Girl” received only 4.6 million radio airplay impressions, 21.2 million streams, and 89,000 downloads.
It is currently the 1,141st track to ever debut at No. 1 in the chart’s history, and it became the 63rd song to do so.
Pop Crave also confirmed that three Black artists have reached No. 1 in three consecutive weeks for the first time in this century. “About Damn Time” by Lizzo, “Renaissance” by Beyonce, and “Super Freaky Girl” by Nicki Minaj.
Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” Debut is the first #1 debut of a female artist without any accompanying acts in the world of hip-hop and rap. Rap royalty Lauryn Hill was the last to accomplish this feat with “Doo Woop (That Thing)” in 1998.
Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” Hot 100 debut also marked the rapper’s 21st No. 1 single. It also holds the top spot on four other charts, including Streaming Songs, Digital Song Sales, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, and Hot Rap Songs.
In addition to her current success, the Queen of Rap will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards on August 28 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
Nicki is also set to co-host the show with LL Cool J and Jack Harlow, and she is up for Best Hip-Hop Video for “Do We Have A Problem.”
Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” Music Video is set to be released soon after she teased it with promotional photos with “Hunger Games” star Alexander Ludwig over the weekend.
