‘Super Bass’: Nicki Minaj Smash Hit Crosses 200 Million Mark On Spotify

Published: Friday 23rd Nov 2018 by David

Days after extending her lead as the highest-selling female rapper of all time, Nicki Minaj continues to soar above talk her commercial run is waning thanks to numbers she is amassing outside of the United States and on the streaming behemoth Spotify.

Though sales of Lauryn Hill‘s debut album ‘The Miseducation’ eclipse numbers generated by Minaj’s four albums, units sold by her singles (solo and collaborative) saw her become the world’s highest-selling/earning lady lyricist long before streaming figures were factored in to the chart system.

Now, even as sales of her new album ‘Queen’ stand a cause for concern, interest in her earlier work continues to outpace releases launched by her rivals (old and new) overseas and on Spotify.

The latest in the rapper’s long line of hits? ‘Super Bass.’ Released as a single in 2011 the single sold over 10 million copies worldwide within the first four years of release and has gone platinum eight times in the United States.

Today, eight years after it first appeared on her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ the cut extends its gains and glory by surpassing the 200 million streams mark on Spotify, amplifying her commercial superiority.

In the mood for more good news?

Check this out…

As of today, Lil Kim‘s Fanatic-produced ‘Crush on You’ has been streamed 10 million times as Remy Ma’s feel-good jam ‘Melanin Magic’ stands just a few weeks away from crossing the 6 million marker!

 

All of this as Cardi B‘s debut album ‘Invasion of Privacy’ earns a Silver certification for sales of 60,000 units in the United Kingdom.

    • Blaaah November 23, 2018

      B**** you seek help, Nicki Minaj is the worst thing to happen to female rap Periodt. Stop posting her thirsty ass before we sh!t all over this blog. There are OTHER talented female rappers to support! Payola headasses.

    bodak actually sold 10 million ww as well! Now eligible for 8x platinum in the U.S

    • HaHa November 23, 2018

      Sold ? Or streamed through playlists owned by her label? You tell me.

      • Yup November 23, 2018

        Nicki’s Superbass is also with streams, so don’t do it. Sales went up once streams were attached. It took Cardi a year to sell 10 million singles of Bodak Yellow alone, which isn’t a pop song like superbass. Stop trying to discredit this girl and we will leave Nicki alone.

    INVASION OF PRIVACY BOUT TO BE 3x PLATINUM AND EVERY SONG ON IT IS CERTIFIED EXCEPT MONEY BAG WHICH IS NOW ELIGIBLE FOR GOLD

    AND CARDI B IN THE TOP 10 on hot 100 more than any other female in 2018 and been in the top 10 since MAY

    • HaHa November 23, 2018

      Once again dear, Nicki’s numbers are from pure digital sales. You know, the ones you actually have to buy. Good for Cardi though, maybe she can use all the money she makes from streams to enrol in an English school. Maybe even film it for a documentary so her fans can see the footages.

      • Yup November 23, 2018

        H0£ stfu, Nicki’s sales aren’t from pure digital. You dummies believe anything this wack a$$ site posts when it benefits your flop of an artist. ???

      • Blaaah November 23, 2018

        Barbz always try to spin the narrative because Cardi is actual competition when it comes to sales. LOL. Pure sales and Nicki don’t mix when the majority of her sales are based on streams.

      • Too Bad November 23, 2018

        Nicki’s sales are pure. Streams only counted in 2014. Super came out in 2010. Try again m’lady.

  5. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez November 23, 2018

    Queen. If you disagree then yous a hater

    • Blaaah November 23, 2018

      Hater all day long. F*ck Nicki Garbaj, she makes the Female game petty

      • Ri Ri November 23, 2018

        Stop viewing articles about her. It’s that simple, y’all bird brains act like somebody force y’all to keep up with Nicki.

      • Blaaah November 23, 2018

        They post about her like she’s the only female rapper out. 3-4 articles bout her every other day. That’s one of the reasons we hate her, she’s overexposed! We’re sick of the propaganda

      • Ri Ri November 23, 2018

        I don’t see that many articles, you’re definitely exaggerating. I see quite a bit of articles about Cardi as well. I guess you don’t have a problem with that cause you like Cardi. Contrary to what you and others believe there’s still people that like Nicki. A lot of y’all say Nicki needs to go away and let Cardi shine. However, y’all were the same ones saying Nicki wants to be the only female rapper out. Since Cardi came out y’all feel Cardi should be the only female rapper out. #DOUBLESTANDARDS

      • Blaaah November 23, 2018

        Clearly you’re dumb as rocks. The difference between Cardi and Nicki is Nicki already having 10 years in the biz. She raps and subject matter is the same every song she put out. No growth having trollop. Cardi is young and refreshing. Nicki a whole pig, y’all see no problem of her holding the spotlight by herself for 7 years literally giving the GP its worst era of female rap ever. Queen Latifah said it best, female rap unity cannot survive with the industry pushing just one female rapper. Nicki Monopoly and her team knows the monster they created. If you actually cared about female rap you would understand Nicki’s presence in the industry is nothing short of cancer. Dropping 283627282 singles a year is called industry slavery not being hard working. Cardi barely out 2 years and already doing collabs to keep the unity alive.

      • Ri Ri November 23, 2018

        First of all, I don’t give a damn about female unity in hip hop. I like who I like, I don’t collab or not. I use to listen to Eve, Foxy,Kim and Missy. I never cared if they did songs together or not. Second you talking about Cardi cardi doing collabs to keep unity alive. What female rappers have Cardi collabed with? I miss that one,that s*** must be waaay underground. Also, you talking about Nicki showing no growth. You clearly must’ve only heard her mainstream songs. I’ve heard songs about her life and different subject matter. Most of Cardi’s songs are stripper anthems talking about money and diamonds. Just about every one of her songs or verses she mention money or diamonds. I guess we’ll have to way and see if the subject matter changes on her next album. I doubt it but we’ll see.

    Congratz to her.

  8. Bianca November 23, 2018

    but superbass is NOT RAP IT IS POP WITH SOME INFUSED RAP. Anyway after ten years it should have good numbers.

    • Ri Ri November 23, 2018

      I bet you wasn’t saying that when “Girl like you” went #1 which is a pop song with a small verse from Cardi. Her verse was about 30-45 seconds long. All of Bardi gang was acting like it was her song.

      • Blaaah November 23, 2018

        At least she can say Bodak Yellow was a number one hit pure rap/Trap song something Onika has yet to become successful with solo. You’re so mad Cardi never came into the game disrespecting legends nor rocked a leopard beehive to win over white america. Cardi stay true to herself and it reflects in her music. Stay mad. You barbz h*** never get the last word. ???

      • Ri Ri November 23, 2018

        The fact that you think what you said affect me in anyway is laughable. I still like Nicki rather she has #1s or not. That’s something that concerns you not me. I been rocking with Nicki for years without her having any #1 songs. Just cause Cardi has #1 songs don’t change the fact that I still rock with Nicki. I rocked with Nicki before Cardi’s era, I still rock with her during Cardi’s era and if she’s still making music after Cardi I’ll still be rocking with Nicki. If it was about #1 hits I wouldn’t have never listen to her in the 1st place since she don’t have any. Therefore, obviously that’s not the reason I listen to her.

  10. Caleb November 23, 2018

    Miseducation of Lauryn Hill sold more than Nicki’s entire discography. But you keep writing “highest-selling female rapper of all time” in every single post about her.
