As Nicki Minaj’s newest hit song, ‘No Frauds,’ proclaims: “…here at Young Money, we don’t do diss records, we drop HIT RECORDS & diss u ON them.” One peek at the most updated iTunes charts reveals she was right.
Fans waited nearly two weeks to hear the Harajuku Barbie’s clapback to the ever-blazing burn of a diss track that was Remy Ma‘s ‘Shether.’ However, just as her faithful Barbz thought the heat from the beef had cooled, Minaj – with Young Money brothers Drake and Lil Wayne at her side – reignited the tussle with the release of not one, but three songs – ‘No Frauds,’ ‘Regret In Your Tears,’ and ‘Changed It’ [click here to listen].
Admittedly, most thought if she was ever to clap back she’d do so cleverly by tucking the response lyrics in an actual single. What could not have been predicted, however, was that all three songs would soar on iTunes, with ‘Frauds’ leading the pack at #1 on digital rap charts.

As of time reported [March 10], ‘No Frauds’ sits at #1 on rap iTunes with ‘Regret’ and ‘Changed’ not too far behind.
On the overall digital charts, it sits at #3 – held at bay from the top spot by megahits ‘Shape of You’ (Ed Sheeran) and ‘That’s What I Like’ (Bruno Mars):
The impressive response to the tunes, also found on Spotify and other streaming outlets, will undoubtedly place them on the refreshed singles charts week after next. With the accomplishments Nicki will enter history books by breaking her standing tie with Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin and nab the title for ‘most Hot 100 entries among women.’
As of time reported, Ma’s ‘Shether’ peaked at #19 on the Hot 100 Bubbling Under charts.
Update [March 11]: Hours after this post hit the net, ‘No Frauds’ took to the top of Pop iTunes.
