After scoring a pair of Hot 100 No 1s at he beginning of 2020′, via her appearances on the remix to Doja Cat’s “Say So” and alongside 6ix9ine on his “Trollz,” Nicki Minaj finally has a Hot 100-topper all to herself, with new single “Super Freaky Girl.”
The song — which, of course, prominently samples Rick James’ well-traveled 1981 funk classic “Super Freak” — debuts at No. 1 this week, as both the most-streamed and highest-selling song in the country this week. Not only does it mark Minaj’s first totally solo No. 1, it’s the first song to debut at No. 1 by any unaccompanied female rapper since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo-Wop (That Thing!)” back in 1998.
Nicki Minaj’s week is certainly off to a SUPER START! Go Nicki!!
