      So does Chris Brown, Drake and anymore others. You can’t downplay Nicki success, she elevate most of the songs she’s featured on. Check the stats, that alone speak for itself. Now roll in NM4.

    Where was Rihanna on this map?

  3. Truth Be Told March 4, 2018

    It’s weird.. u never hear about other female/male rappers talking about how much they want it anymore. Ever since that 08-09 era with Drake and Nicki it’s been a handful of rappers that have pushed through and gain respect from legends in the industry like bey and Jay. Nicki wanted it more and still does. That’s why she’s popular and can garner so much attention on a hiatus. #QUEEN

      Cardi B.. Young M.A, and a few male rappers (Chance The Rapper, Dave East, J. Cole, and Kendrick Lamar) are always talking about how they want it. Where you been?…

        Cardi b is not starving for it like 09 Nicki was she just kinda want it but doesn’t wanna put in the werk

  5. MessyBoots March 4, 2018

    I’m absolutely stunned at Rihanna’s total absence and of All people to top her is Jazmin Sullivan?

    • Caleb March 4, 2018

      All it means is that people don’t tag Rihanna Spotify playlists on Instagram with #BlackGirlMagic if I’m reading correctly.

      • MessyBoots March 4, 2018

        Oh this isn’t based on real streaming figures only a hashtag?

    When will people realise that these polls make you popular by the masses but doesn’t make you good. Yes, Nicki has and success but most of her music is neither good nor classic and has become popular by being as original as most of these average pop chicks.
    I’m happy for people that support her and she has made her mark i guess, i just wont celebrate her music because its disposable.

    The fact remains birdman purchased them albums n streams. She will never get out of a contract with them. Same with Wayne. It’s all in the game. I don’t respect her hustle because they feel the more money they pay the easily have blocked several other artist from popping off.

    Cause she flopping honey ?

  9. B2B March 4, 2018

    Wow this map is very telling. Hence Lemonade is not in Spotify yet. Black queens. Solo snatched NYC WOW! I’m impressed. Bey should take HER and Khelani on your with her as opening acts. Take Solo as opening act internationally.

      get over your self.

  13. Gregory Levine March 5, 2018

    What kind of question is “Why do you think Nicki is so popular”? The damn woman is one of the most accomplished woman in all of music. Love her or hate her, the industry is run by artists like Nicki Minaj who are able to sell, and have talent. I think the real question is why in 2018 are people still questioning Nicki’s craft…

      Preach sis ??
