Behind the Scenes: Nicki Minaj Shows the Making of ‘Chun Li’ in Documentary Preview [Video]

Published: Thursday 31st May 2018 by Rashad

To show her gratitude to her faithful #Barbz for making ‘Chun Li’ her latest single to earn a Gold certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Nicki Minaj has invited them to a behind-the-scenes look at its creation.

Beyond its top 10 peak on the Hot 100 (to date), ‘Chun’ spun its way to Gold status earlier this week – a feat the rapstress used as a vehicle to launch news about a documentary that will support its parent album, ‘Queen.’

Due August 10th, the documentary promises to be a telling look into the world of one of music’s most talked about female figures and not only features looks at the making and baking of her fourth album’s content, but also looks to help quiet those ongoing murmurs of ghostwriter employment.

Look inside to see the first set of previews:

    Nicki is my girl but she is so transparent. lolol. She tries so hard to prove herself it’s almost embarrassing. I am officially scared for her and this era.

    • Fancy BISH May 31, 2018

      lol *Eats Rice Krispies Treats* *SMACKS* ?

    • Caleb May 31, 2018

      This has been her longest era. It began in January 2017 and just keeps dragging on without ever having an album to show for it. It’s crazy.

      • Meme June 1, 2018

        Like I just don’t understand. Artist of her caliber doesn’t need to drag out album releases. Also it seems like they are hot searching which isn’t necessary in today’s market. They were better off just dropping the album. No one will care by August and I guarantee it will not out perform Cardi, which I know they are scared for. Because let’s face it, Nicki is always holding her sales claim…if she isn’t on top with that anymore it’s a wrap.

  5. Youhoeskudneva June 1, 2018

    Lmaooo she’s trying to go out of her way to prove “she writes her music” like girl you ain’t fooling no one with this staged ass documentary just drop the damn album already & move on!!!

  6. DanYiel Iman June 1, 2018

    Will it show her latest ass implants as well?! She’s a fraud for y’all funds I’ll continue to pass on this message!!

  7. KodakRedd! June 1, 2018

    There is a reason she keeps stalling..ain’t no way you already dropped 5 Singles since early last year and now you outchea talm bout you bout to release yo 2nd single!!!…Girl bye!..”The Trap Selena” got you shook!! weak as these songs are that you keep releasing, maybe you need to employ another writer!!..How you fix yo mouth to say you left social media for 4 months to work on your album yet “Chun Li” was written, produced, mixed and mastered 24hrs b4 it’s release?!! Ma’am you have had since February of 2017 (when u dropped those three singles )to work on your album!!!!…she don’t know what to do with Cardi season being in full effect!…and I guess The STANs don’t have an excuse for how fast “Chun Li” ascended up the charts then quickly dropped back down as fast as it rose!..(and nobody peepin that now she actin’ like “Barbie Tingz”, and them other 3 songs that did not do well did not exist)…I can’t!!! Safaree!!…maybe he can help you out again, cuz atleast when he was with you your music sounded better and did much better on the charts!!..And naming your album “Queen” is a bit far fetched as of late..cuz you ain’t reigning over nothing on them there charts…Ms. Bartier still in the top 20 and has multiple multi -platinum (as well as gold) singles under her belt….Nicki cheat code my ash!!!??????????????
    P.s. Still a fan but you hafta do better mama…

    • Fancy BISH June 1, 2018

      lmao ?

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

      @Kodak – Nicki’s single went Gold in less than a month. That’s no small feat. Cardi’s album as been out since when? And it went Platinum via what method Sway? The answer: Streams

      • Erica June 1, 2018

        so tell how did nicki went gold less than a month? certainly not just pure sales, I’m pretty sure streams is the bunk of why her single went gold, so how can you even come for cardi FAIL!!!! yall stans are a mess

      • ??? June 1, 2018

        lmao sit dear, chun li went gold for 500K PURE SALES. yes h0, MORE than corni’s WHOLE ALBUM. sit and take the L loser, nicki wins again lmfaooooooooooooooooo

      • Erica June 1, 2018

        I’m a loser but yall making up sales the irony, where are the receipts? last time I check it was at around 75k with pure sales I’m confused sis send me the link

      • Erica June 1, 2018

        Just over a week after performing her latest hit “Chun-Li” on Saturday Night Live, Nicki Minaj has officially earned a gold sales award for it.

        Revealed on via the artist’s Twitter account and confirmed by the RIAA, the news comes roughly a month and a half after the song’s original release on April 12. The gold certification reflects sales and sales equivalents amounting to 500,000 units, a combination of digital download purchases, legal audio streams, and online music video plays.

        it’s literally funny at this point you girls lying saying she sold over 500k pure sales, EPIC

      • KodakRedd! June 1, 2018

        S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R., I know you mad boo..y.but you cannot possibly be comparing “Chun Li” to “Bodak Yellow”(cuz those are singles, boo) and Cardi’s album was Certified gold the day it was released, so that is not a good comparison either. I am not dragging Nicki, I am stating true facts. You cannot debate that…. Are you forgetting that since Cardi’s ascension that they have met on the charts several times and NOT 1 time did she outperform her…they both were on multiple songs last Summer…only two of the songs Nicki did then reached top 10. (One being a song that Cardi was also featured on). The other was “Rake It Up”…and I guess you glossed over them 5 singles she has released and is now only claiming 1of them?…4 songs are NOT Promo singles!…You may not like it, but facts are facts and that’s that, pumpkin.

    • Harajuku June 1, 2018

      dis coming from a bish who aint neva had a album. LP?

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

      @Erica – Nicki’s label was scared to put Nicki’s songs out in both physical AND digital formats unlike Cardi’s which was not put out, in limited number of physical copies, until sometime later. 80-90% of Cardi’s sales are DIGITAL.

      As they say when in Rome do what Romans do! Hahaha so Nicki got the gold certification with both (shrugs) a win is a win in this ridiculous world of New RIAA Rules.
      #Romans Reload (Beyotch)

      Oh and I will correct myself, Nicki was certified 5-29, dropped 4-12 – 6 wks and 3 days for certification.

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

        *Nicki’s label WASN’T scared…

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 1, 2018

        Sorry SUPERSTAR, Nicki’s time has come and gone and nobody is interested in her regurgitated bars and lil Kim outfits anymore . She had a good run, too bad she couldn’t make a classic in that time tho

      • Erica June 1, 2018

        you say 80-90 percent of cardi sales is streams, but she sold OVER 250k pure sales of her album that’s impressive. You also make it seem that nicki sold more pure sales than streams when it’s the other way around. without the streams nicki would be at 100k with chun li so they both are benefiting with streams not just cardi, you tried it tho

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

        @Jasmine – Apparently people are interested since the song has gone gold per the wonderful rules of the game now. In addition, Chun-Li has made Nicki another record entry with her 30th top ten per Billboard, 5-31 where the song was listed at #9.

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

        @Erica – You need learn to read. I stated the Nicki’s single is Gold in less than a month and then corrected myself by stating 6 wks. I also gave you the drop and cert dates. I didn’t state it was gold by pure sales nor did I insinuate that, another posted stated that, you tried it though. I did, however address your attempt to crap on her single being gold when I mentioned Cardi’s certification based on streams aka LIKES or Gawker Listening. Oh, and Cardi’s ALBUM has been out since when and it’s at how many sales? Get real. I ALSO stated that I’ll totally play the new game of streams, and apparently Nicki isn’t complaining, but don’t act as though the wet rat is doing big things dear. You and I both know that not everyone that brings it is doing big numbers and the ones that are are either garbage artists that rely on streams (bad bhabie), vets/bankables (U2, Justin B). By doing so you down play the historical records of Michael Jackson and Elvis, just to name a few.
        #You Tried And Failed AGAIN

      • Erica June 1, 2018

        I’m done, because if you didn’t try to insinuate that minaj sold 500k pure sales, why did you mock cardi for going platinum with the help streams as if that’s not the reason why minaj is gold, at this point go to bed you tried it, and mad cause I call you out

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.! June 1, 2018

        @Erica – Again, another fail. You can CLEARLY READ. I stated Nicki went GOLD in 6 weeks and 3 days. I also stated, when Kodak stated that Cardi’s ALBUM went gold/platinum on the day it dropped that it got certified due SOLELY ON STREAMS in 1 day. Don’t try it girlie. 100k copies PURE were sold of Nicki’s album, I can get back to you on the number of DIGITAL SALES and THEN the streams but let’s get real Cardi can’t pull like that WITHOUT STREAMS as in GAWKER LISTENING/FREE LISTENING.

        You can BE GONE because YOU prove me right EVERY TIME YOU POST. Nicki is GOLD in 6wks 3 days on A SINGLE under the way the game is played. In that game she did 100k in PURE SALES. Cardi did 250k in pure sales, per you, that was after the album was officially available in stores (physically) HOW MANY MONTHS AFTER? In addition, HOW LONG DID IT TAKE CARDI’S singles to sell and she’s been pushed since WHEN?

        Don’t try to discard Nicki babe. Cardi can only do GAWKER STREAM/FREE LISTENING no one is buying Cardi’s album or singles. And YES, I know it hurts you but Nicki is at her 30th top 10 single, I know you read what I wrote do to this song AND the new rules. We are all playing by them now babe so don’t RAISE CARDI like SYMBA when she’s all streams but discard Nicki when she pushed 100k pure sales and if YOU LIE and say that Cardi’s ALBUM did 250k pure sales when it dropped I KNOW YOU ARE MAD HURT BECAUSE THAT IS A FLAT OUT LIE. It took this woman AT LEAST 3-6 months to get that in pure sales but I can get back to you on that too kid.

        Don’t get mad at ME check Billboard – Chun Li #9 per 5-31 AND YES she has MORE top ten’s than ‘Yonce. If you raising Cardi under STREAMS (free listening because her DIGITAL SALES WERE NOT 1 MILLION) then you just insulted Michael Jackson, Elvis and the like.

        And yes I am going to CONTINUE TO MOCK CARDI because she can only do FREE LISTENS and EVERY ONE OF HER SINGLES have gotten certified from STREAMS and NOT digital sales or pure sales so don’t try it.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

      @Koday – Cardi was gold via ALL digital streams upon release. Womp, womp. I know you hate Nicki but don’t try to make a wet rat a champion kid. She’d have to suck way more pen… for that kiddo.


    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

      @Kodak – And if Card’s ENTIRE album went Gold upon release based on digital and stream only sales upon release, because it was NOT initially available via physical and when it was Cardi AND the label said there would only limited numbers of physical available, what does it tell you? Her fans weren’t then, nor now are they too invested as she went Gold on release based on STREAMS ONLY. As a matter of fact an article was done it and one was on TGT, I believe, and YES it was certified upon release based on streams, aka free listening.
      #You’re Welcome

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

      @Kodak – Oh, and as of 5-31 Chun-Li was sitting at #9 on the charts. Thanks to it’s position it has made Nicki the only female with 30 top 10’s per a Billboard article posted on 5-31, you may want to check that out. (And for you YOU KNOW WHO fans, yes she has more than her too! Per Billboard, Blondie (side eye) has 29.
      #You’re Welcome

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

      @Eric – Oh and 100K PURE SALES for a single ain’t bad at all given the current/new climate. The reason Cardi’s label had her album streams/digital only is because no one was going to buy a physical copy which is evident by the fact she got certified based on STREAMS ONLY. Again, TGT, did and article and so do a number of reputable outlets.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 1, 2018

      @Erica – Oh and Cardi’s label didn’t put the physical album out until a month or more after because they knew she couldn’t get it via that method. She got it by STREAMS and don’t even say people bought the album in droves as a digital release because they didn’t. You say as soon as she dropped she went certifiable and it was ALL STREAMS! Hahaha aka Gawker Listening, Free Listening

      • Erica June 1, 2018

        I didn’t say she went certified wrong person boo, and that don’t make sense that she didn’t have physical copy because nobody would purchase them. The reason why they didn’t sent it to a store upon release because it would have leak before the album actually came out that Friday. retail get the shipmen at least a week before the album is released so she doing what most artist is dong now in order for their album not to leak. If the physical copy was released the same day she would have sold more facts. I’m tired of arguing with a dummie

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.! June 1, 2018

        @Erica – The lies you tell. Cardi said it out of HER OWN MOUTH and so did her label put out an announcement that they were NOT GOING TO PUT OUT ANY physical copies. Cardi then stated she is trying to get them, as in the label, to put out physical copies. TGT put out an article on this you can read it for yourself. The label put out physical copies MONTHS after they saw her STREAMING NUMBERS that Kodak alluded too and no I didn’t say YOU said she was certified I CLEARLY “@” Kodak so don’t try it “boo.”
        #You Made Hurt

        And yes they waited to put out physical sales because they know that NO ONE WAS GOING TO BUY THAT CRAP PHYSICALLY AND she didn’t do that many in DIGITAL versions/sales of her album either she did it ALL IN STREAMS, free listening, which is why COUNTLESS MUSIC OUTLETS did articles on how she got certified based on STREAMS, free listens ONLY. So save that it would have leaked crap because it had NOTHING TO DO WITH LEAKING and Cardi said it was because the label DIDN’T want it out. Katy Perry’s album was NOT goingn to be available via physical either and she said something about it too like Cardi did. You know why Cardi nor Katy’s albums were going to be available physically? Because the label HAS PROJECTS ON SALES and knew it wouldn’t sell physically.

        Don’t try it babe because there are articles out on this just use the internet which you won’t because you are EMBARRASSED that I BUSTED ON YOUR FACE AGAIN.

    • KodakRedd! June 2, 2018

      S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.- why is you sittin’up here lying?!!..The Physical copy of “Invasion of Privacy” dropped two weeks later..where you getting months from boo?…you must be confused again…I lowkey peeped how you tried to ignore the fact that Nicki released 5 singles but gon act like the song she bout to release is going to be her 2nd single. Oh you danced all around that huh?…It looks like you might need to wipe your face since it just got busted on…Me and Erica have worn you out for the day. Goodnite….*smooches*

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 2, 2018

      @Kodak – The lies you tell Kodak. You better take the crap and lick it up. Fact check with Billboard as they did an article babe and her sales were based on STREAMS as the label did NOT provide physical copies. She was stream and digital download ONLY upon release AND NO copies were available 2wks later because it didn’t make sense she was #2 then because Jason Aldean dropped and knocked that wet rat back to the sewer!

      Check Billboard’s article from 4-19 or so when she dropped babes as her “sales” were due to streams! And by week 2 she was doing about 25K based on STREAMs. In addition, she didn’t become gold or certify n the day she dropped, per Billboard she did 255k her WHOLE ALBUM and that is NOT GOLD!

    Nothing new. Nicki has always documented herself writing since Pink Friday. But of course the haters will act like this is out of her character. Y’all cant wait for the album just like her fans it’s okay.

    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.! June 1, 2018

      @Section.. – Cut the crap like she’s 36 and she is doing her thing. You don’t die after you hit 30 AND she got her 30th top 10 single due to CHUN LI being at #9 on BILLBOARD HOT 100 as of 5-31 (Check the article written on Billboard’s website.)
