With her latest track, “Super Freaky Girl,” Nicki Minaj has returned to the top of the charts. The Rick James-inspired ballad premiered at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and then topped the Streaming Songs chart. This is Minaj’s first Streaming Songs No. 1 since “Anaconda” in 2014.
“Super Freaky Girl,” according to Billboard, is the second No. 1 debut on the Streaming Songs chart since DJ Khaled’s “Staying Alive,” featuring Drake and Lil Baby. Concurrently, the song topped the charts for Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs. Minaj has continued to demonstrate why she is the Queen of Rap in 2022, with over 89,300 digital sales.
According to the publication, “Super Freaky Girl” is also the first solo rap song by a female artist to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100 since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998.
“You did it barbz,” Nicki wrote to her fans on Instagram. “You accomplished it. I adore you to pieces. I adore you SO MUCH. Thank you very much.”
The 39-year-old has continued her outstanding third quarter with the announcement that she will co-host the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards alongside Jack Harlow and LL Cool J. This year’s event will be held on Sunday at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey (August 28).
