Nicki Minaj’s ‘Down In The DM’ Remix Makes Moves On The ‘Hot 100’

Published: Wednesday 17th Feb 2016 by David

She rose to fame by way of many a Hip-Hop remix.

Now, before the release of her fourth studio album, Nicki Minaj has learned that her power to push remake original songs and push them to higher ground is undying.


Her ‘Down in the DM’ remix is on its way to impacting the Billboard Hot 100‘s Top Twenty.

The Yo Gotti number received a fresh pair of promotional legs  in the first week of February when Minaj, with the help of her alter-egos, released a sexually explicit remix of it.

Her move has worked wonders.

For, yesterday saw it rise 18 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 to claim the #21 spot and give the Hip-Hop jam its highest position on the tally seven years after she gave him a similar gift with her remix of his ‘5 Star Chick’ cut.

      because she has her 17 gay barb loser fans streaming all day. The record buying public is done with her trashy swag

      • Barb February 17, 2016

        Sales actually. She’s selling this song not streaming it. Billboard and soundscan don’t count user generated videos. #youtriedthough

    Umm, the reach is real. Last we checked it was the original version by Yo Gotti that’s getting the most airplay and making moves on Billboard. The remix really takes away from Gotti considering Nicki pigs out on two verses which is the majority of the track. TGJ let’s do better, okay?

    • Barb February 17, 2016

      Erm you should check Billboard, the remix is what has the highest peak. Don’t talk if you don’t know what you’re talking about.

      • Word is bond February 17, 2016

        Well, real rap fans and the Grammy award committee alike stay talking and the verdict is… Nicki ain’t s***. Queen of Ear R*** couldn’t even kill it with one verse, had to be on most of the song to detract away from the original artist. It’s not her song regardless how much you minion fans hype Nicki up.

    • GEEZUS95 February 17, 2016

      But the remix is outselling the original on iTunes….

    Out peaked Missy’s comeback single

    • Nicki Minaj thee ONLY QB February 17, 2016

      That would had been good IF it was Nicki’s solo track.

    • Word is bond February 17, 2016

      See this the s*** I’m talking about, the blatant disrespect of female rappers’ legacies like Missy’s. You’re pressed af to even bring that up. Nicki is a straight up pig and y’all stay feeding her your souls. As long as she’s around female rap unity will be dead.
