Stream Queen: Lil Kim’s ‘Crush On You’ Hits 6 Million Plays Point

Published: Wednesday 4th Oct 2017 by David

The last decade, believe it or not, has seen Nicki Minaj’s discography outsell Lil Kim‘s.

In the same time, efforts have been made to rewrite Kim’s history and unfairly use her more recent career missteps to diminish her legacy and the part she played in building Minaj as we know her today.

Leading the charge to ensure the world throws respect on her name? A fan base who have elevated her to meteoric heights on Spotify.

Fantastic news for the Queen Bee below…

This morning her Cam’ron penned jam ‘Crush on You’ reached the 6.6 million spins scored on Spotify marker 21 years after its release.

1,500 streams is equivalent one sale of an album meaning that Kim, who is currently functioning as an independent artist, still stands as one of Atlantic Records’ highest-earning alumni pumping cash into the careers of its newbies Kehlani and Cardi B.

There’s more.

Find out how the likes of ‘How Many Licks’ and ‘Magic Stick’ is faring below…


It seems, that even in the face of opposition, Kim’s fans continue to carry the icon to higher ground.

    Lil Kim has basically almost destroyed her legacy due to Her extensive self-hate plastic surgery mission. Hardcore Cd even still is the greatest CD every made by a rap female. HardCore is a CLASSIC. Spin Queen B_itch or DRUGS and watch even the hardest dude bop.

      No shade but which of Nicki’s record can a macho dude bop to? Asking for a friend’s sister nephews daughter

      • Electrikblue October 4, 2017

        Bush in Africa: Four Door Aventador, her ft on Monster to name a couple

      • Caleb October 5, 2017

        Who cares if “macho” dudes can bop to it? They aren’t the ones buying female rap records in the first place tbh.

    • Fancy BISH October 4, 2017

      Kim used to be absolutely stunning! Kim was naturally a pretty girl, but she could get that face made up like nobody’s business! Why she went under the knife and turned to Kim Lee, I’ll never know hunnie 🤷‍♀️

  3. SMH October 4, 2017

    Lmao oh please, Kim’s career died 10 years ago. Its not that hard to believe that Nicki outsold her. Besides, Missy outsold them both so whats the point of shading Nicki, just because a 20 year old song hit 6 million streams? Lmao bye.

    • Its me gowrl October 4, 2017

      Mad much? 😜

  4. Ari October 4, 2017

    Imma throw shade if I can’t get paid

  5. The Wig Snatcher October 4, 2017

    Soooooooo whenever a female’s song crosses any million mark on streams, it will become news on TGJ. Come up with some original content please.

  6. LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES October 4, 2017

    Oinknika has not sold more albums in the United States or internationally than Lil’ Kim. Kim’s first album sold FIVE MILLION copies around the world. Kim’s second album sold FOUR MILLION COPIES. Kim’s third album sold TWO & A HALF MILLION COPIES around the world. All of Kim’s first three albums sold at least ONE MILLION COPIES in the United States. Kim is the only female rapper besides Missy Elliott to have three million-selling albums in the United States.

    Oinknika has ONE album that has sold over 1 million copies in the United States. That was her first album. I wish people would state facts and stop falling for Oinknika’s propaganda. Oinknika sells singles (as a featured artist). She does not sell albums. To paraphrase Oinknika: “To be the Queen of Rap, you’ve got to SELL ALBUMS.”

    • Jamon October 4, 2017

      EXACTLY!! And this was before streams.

    • Electrikblue October 4, 2017


    • Boytoy1814 October 5, 2017

      AND Lil Kim has a Grammy. Where’s Nikki’s????

    • Caleb October 5, 2017

      How could her albums sell that much worldwide when they sold less than half of those numbers in US, where she was by far the biggest?

      • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES October 5, 2017

        Lil’ Kim is an international superstar. Kim is the only female rapper to have three top ten hits in Germany. Kim’s Notorious KIM album has been in the top 10 of iTunes in Hungary in 2017. In her prime, Kim was bigger around the globe than Oinknika is today. Don’t let these barfz lie to you. Kim is WORLDWIDE.

    • Teese October 12, 2017

      Agreed. People don’t make albums anymore and get so excited when their one lil single sells millions. If an entire album sells over 1 million copies then I’ll be impressed. And nicki doesn’t have one classic album u can listen to all the way thru. People still listen to Kim’s first cd 20 years later. Shoot I listen to all her cds. They r actually really good. Kim u still that b**** f^ck da haters!!

  7. Coolio October 4, 2017

    She can possibly come back even harder of shes focused. Kim has been played with she couldve been the richest female rap star ever but it was those ppl she was dealing with.
    Now she needs to put herself first and release some s*** now.
    But i think her and remy are waiting for nicki to release her s*** tbh to destroy her sales.

    • Jasmine October 4, 2017

      It is too late for Kim. 12+ years since her last album and voice changes after too much nose surgery means Kim’s talent (rapping) and a large part of her fan base are simply gone! She should try to manage younger female rappers and make money that way because it is not going ti haooen for her as a rapper again.

      • Travon October 5, 2017

        Neither is your spelling

  8. Aaron October 4, 2017

    Is Thatgrapejuice really gonna pretend like they didn’t play a part in attacking Kim & “diminishing” her legacy throughout the years? Anyone else notice that?

    • I speaks the truth October 4, 2017

      Yep I do them queens used to photoshop her pictures.

    • Its me gowrl October 4, 2017

      Yas honey those bas tards dragged queen Kim mercilessly for that carbon copy biatchh who can’t even find work anymore. She fizzled out in only a few years. Kii

  9. Honestly October 4, 2017

    Single wise yes. But Nicki’s last two albums have yet to Sell (not stream) over 1m copies in the US. So no she hasn’t.

  10. Bravo!! October 4, 2017

    Do lil Kim get money or just who wrote the records?

    • Its me gowrl October 4, 2017

      😐 …Go to hell

    • Fancy BISH October 4, 2017

      Kim actually wrote this, along with Mason Betha (Ma$e), Cameron Giles (Cam’ron) and Christopher Wallace (The Notorious B.I.G.)…Lil Cease was the one who didn’t write ISH lol

    • Ky October 5, 2017

      Kim wrote her own s*** so she gets paid ALOT for her stuff she’s wrote on songs that she wasnt on that were on The Conspiracy album and other albums. DJ Ciphasounds was on the plane right next to her when she wrote her verse to I can love you. She writes best under pressure, she put her emotions in her songs and they come out great.

      • Fancy BISH October 5, 2017

        Yaaas, I enjoyed reading your comment

  11. Travon October 5, 2017

    First of all s*** juice camron only pened lil cease version. Get uall shot s*** together f****** f******

    • Fancy BISH October 5, 2017

      LMAO, Lil Cease’s verses didn’t change in the Kim version, so you just had a stroke for no reason and added nothing to the conversation! Some people need to know when to keep it MOVING lol

  12. Ky October 5, 2017

    Nicki has not outsold Kim who is the second highest selling female rapper with 7 number ones on the rap charts, a number one on billboard, her album Hardcore alone outsold Nicki’s albums combined. Kim has 6 MICS on an album that she didnt get to promote. The Naked Truth has sold over 2 million copies WW while she was on lock and no promo. It was released on the day she went in. Nicki cant sell albums for s*** her last one moved so slow she had to reup her first one because it flopped. Kim has a diverse fanbase men that usually dont buy female albums buys Kim’s albums…. Nicki gains streams on her features or singles. Her fans be too busy harassing other female rappers and her s*** flops. Kim’s career isnt destroyed. Lets not forget the whole time with Atlantic she had her own label so she still getting PAID from her old s***. If she release that unreleased material she’ll have the game on lock again. The woman is controlling her own career, she is controlling the sound and direction of her upcoming album. Missy Elliott holds that number one spot as the highest selling female rapper of all time. Nicki’s pop success and saying yes to every endorsement she sees does not amount to Kim and Missy’s blueprint period
