Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Queen’ has reigned over the iTunes charts since its unexpected release on Friday (August 10).
Storming the digital charts shortly after its release (unseating Jason Mraz‘s ‘Know’ in the process), the album has held a tight grip atop the U.S. sales tally well over the weekend – a feat that shows no signs of slowing over the course of its inaugural tracking week (as of time reported). Even the rap diva herself took to Instagram to report the project had become the first female rap album to simultaneously hit #1 on the sales tallies of 81 different countries (click here to see that).
And, as if that’s not enough to celebrate, Minaj recently learned ‘Fefe’ – her controversial collaboration with rapper 6ix9ine – has crossed the platinum threshold just less than two weeks after it hit Gold.
Congratz are certainly in order for the duo, who could very well be on their way to their first respective runs at #1 on the H0t 100 thanks to the success of the song. Currently sitting at #1 on Youtube’s music video chart (as of time reported), the tune’s also drawn in quite the handsome combo of streaming and digital sales.
After a #5 debut and rise to #3 the week after that (where it currently sits), it will be something to see if ‘Fefe’ can be the song that boots Drake‘s massive hit, ‘In My Feelings,’ from the top spot.
