iTunes USA: Nicki Minaj’s ‘Chun Li’ Sells 30,000 Copies Within 24 Hours

Published: Friday 13th Apr 2018 by David

As revenue pulled in from streaming data propels profits margins, the rapper Nicki Minaj stands as part of an elite crew of musicians with the power to pull in noteworthy sales the old fashioned way.

Positive news for the performer below…

Yesterday delivered two comeback singles from the entertainer as she carves out a campaign for her fourth studio album.

Their names? ‘Barbie Tingz’ and ‘Chun Li.’

Within 24 hours of their release, the jams have sold over 50,000 units on the iTunes platform alone-powered by fans who have waited four years for the unveiling of new standalone releases from the star.

30,900 of those pure sales were earned by ‘Chun Li’ which, is at writing, is currently the highest-selling single in the U.S and the 34th highest-seller in the world today.

A due date for the next full-length album from Minaj is yet to be announced.

    • Fancy BISH April 13, 2018

      This is the first time Nicki doesn’t have to worry about Taylor Swift releasing anything cause Tay Tay is flopping in these streets for her standards lol…Reputation just wasn’t the business…let’s be honest!

      • Faf April 13, 2018

        True but Taylor didn’t really traditionally promote she’s not doing a lot of public appearances

      • Fancy BISH April 13, 2018

        I understand that….I should have put that in my comment…but the music isn’t as strong as 1989 either…she’ll bounce back tho! On gawd ?

    • Suicide Blonde April 13, 2018

      I’m gonna do my hair like Nicki did in the Chub Li pic.

  2. Nah April 13, 2018

    That doesn’t even include the clean version which I think is number 10 on that very list

  3. Fancy BISH April 13, 2018

    Chile PLEASE lmao ? Nicki must be paying ya’ll lol…Drakesha is about to block her REAL quick…she can act like Cardi is the enemy, but Drakesha has blocked Nicki his whole career! When has Nicki sold like Drakesha and Waynesha?

    • SMH April 13, 2018

      Obviously you’re mad. Oh well lol.

      • Fancy BISH April 13, 2018

        I’m not mad boo lol…let her have her day lol ?

      • Niggro Please April 13, 2018

        Yup that’s all it is lmaoo

      • Fancy BISH April 13, 2018

        @Niggro, don’t get ghost when Dung Li falls ? I better see you posting

  4. erica April 13, 2018

    that’s not a lot lol, I have seen artist sell over a 100k singles in the first 24 hours but ok congrats

    • SMH April 13, 2018

      Maybe a pop artist, not a female rapper though.

      • Jasmine (The Original Princess) April 13, 2018

        But I thought Nicki is both?
        Now she’s only a rapper? (Who can’t even put out diss tracks)

      • Cornbread April 13, 2018

        But I thiught nicki was a pop star? Isn’t she apart of the trinity with Bey and Rih? Shouldn’t her sales reflect that?

  5. ? + ✈ = ? April 13, 2018

    Should drop the video now! To a high placement on billboard.

  6. BubblePopElectric April 13, 2018

    Nicki is having a moment! Those 2 songs sound fresh, clever and like nothing else on radio. Evidently, this is the Nicki people have been waiting for.

  7. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.! April 13, 2018

    Congrats girlie!

  8. Barb-wire April 13, 2018

    Biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitch!!!!n I have never been this excited! Feels like back when Nicki dropped Anaconda which eneded Piggy Flopzalea’s career. Nicki bout to end another career and I’m here for it.

  9. Gee April 13, 2018

    Everyone rejoice because I know that this hype will be short lived.

    • Faf April 13, 2018

      The album going platinum regardless so ??‍♂️

  10. Fancy BISH April 13, 2018

    Let me say something nice lol…Nicki is a pretty girl…she can continue to promote her Barbie brand cause her black ain’t doing a DAY of cracking ? No one is saying that she looks out of place! The fact that she can still sell ONE copy of these snack machine tracks to the youth is an accomplishment for a woman well into her 30’s ?? The good sis Whitney was selling Bodyguard adult contemporary realness at age 29 and won her Grammy for Album Of The Year at age 30 (but truth be told Whitney could have sold youthful stuff too with her flawless face lol)…just saying! So Dung Li and Barbie Bin are successes at least on some level ?

  11. what does colon cancer pain feel like April 13, 2018

    Id be willing to bet she doesnt actually know about street fighter. Women can be needs too, but I find it hard to believe when a celeb suddenlycomes out nerdy and incorrectly references something. To be thats a big red flag that they are only doing it for the publicity. Nerd culture doesnt belong to anyone but I spent all of middle school and high school being teased for liking nerdy stuff. I get a bit mad knowing that and seeing people like this who never knew the struggle and just decided one day to like nerdy stuff because suddenly its cool.

  12. iamdiego April 13, 2018

    Wouldn’t Barbie Tingz be the most selling track? 26626+7152=32778 copies right?

  13. pat April 13, 2018

    cute.. but congrats to Cardi for just having the most streamed album by a female of all time according to Billboard

  14. F You April 13, 2018

    In less than a week they’re gonna free fall,wait on it?

  15. I HATE .WHYyyyte n Blaaaxk. Bitchezzzzz April 13, 2018

    they say numbers don’t matter when they discussing the Kings they turn around and say LeBron ain’t got six rings

  16. SNF April 13, 2018

    Still basic. ??‍♂️

  17. Theman April 13, 2018

    That’s very very good for one day of sales…

  18. Lake Erie April 13, 2018

    I mean her flow was nice.. she took it back for the nostalgia on her delivery but other than that I probably won’t play the song again. …. Ummm yea, I’m for certain I won’t lol. I think “no frauds” was 10x catchier than these joints. Beat and all. I played that song all last spring into the summer too. I hope these tunes are pregame singles because they can’t be official. I don’t believe it.

    • CX April 13, 2018

      Me either, she’s trolling

    • Nico April 13, 2018

      Wwhat ?? NF sucks compared to those songs. The artistry in CL >>>>>>> NF

  19. A&R April 13, 2018

    Wow! This s*** is exciting ??‍♂️

  20. Brent Christopher April 13, 2018

    Why aren’t you kweens talking about Cardi breaking Apple’s streaming record with over 100 million streams in one week — more than any other female artist EVER?!

  21. Olusheyi April 13, 2018

    Wow get it Nicki

  22. Nico April 13, 2018

    Cant wait for the Queen to drop the video

  23. Lal’Kol April 13, 2018

    As she said on a interview days ago, her new album is not ready yet. Truth is she just released those 2 new songs just because she’s pressed by Cardi B actual success. She’s afraid to lose her Queen status and she’s right because what goes around comes back around, remember what happened between her and Lil’ Kim years ago? Hum, enjoy the Karma now because time has come.

  24. DanYiel Iman April 13, 2018

    ?Tricki Garbagh is a #FRAUD!!

    • TRUTH SERUM April 13, 2018

      Now that’s a real legit rapper ! You know you’re a fan deep down! Congrats Queen!!!

  25. whatever April 14, 2018

    Didn’t the flop trinity of songs she released with no frauds do the same? The songs will free fall next week as always.
