If you’re unfamiliar with KAPTN, now might be a good time to make his acquaintance.
Seriously, if the murmurings of many a tastemaker are anything to go by, the Rapper is on course to scoring a hit of epic proportions with the infectious….’Ricky Ricardo’.
Now, it seems US audiences are doing their part to ensure that happens!
Find out how below…
Sure to rise as the summer progress, ‘Ricardo’ has seen its plays on rhythmic radio rise by 22% in the last seven days, while YouTube views on its official video sit at the 468,387.
Modest? Perhaps. However, in noting his slow but sure ascent to ‘Gangnam Style’ esque glory, Billboard have named him one of their noteworthy acts, celebrating his journey towards Hot 100 success with the number.
…and he isn’t the only Rapper making chart waves this week.
77 weeks after its release in the nation, Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Starships’ watches its UK sales hit the 864,000 mark- sitting just 136,000 units away from shifting 1 million units in the market.
4x Platinum in the US and selling over 7.2 million copies worldwide, the single’s British success comes after it was certified 6x Platinum by Australian Recording Industry Association and 3x Platinum in Mexico, for sales of 180,000 units.
