Cardi B’s ‘Press’ Streamed 23 Million Times On Spotify

Published: Tuesday 25th Jun 2019 by David

Flash in the pan? Think again.

Meet us below to find out how Cardi B is putting her naysayers to shame with her hot new single ‘Press.’

Array

Press’ is one of the tracks Cardi is using to carve a clear path out of her second studio album and was performed by the rapper on Sunday night’s BET Awards.

Supported by Christian Owens, the Hip-Hop starlet rocked the event hit the stage with hopes her delivery of the track would work wonders for it on a sales and streaming tip. Fortunately, it did.

For, while it currently sits at #59 on iTunes USA, the tune surpassed the 23.3 million Spotify streams mark this month this morning as millions make their way to the platform to spin it after seeing her rock it live.

With this, she extends her lead as one of the highest/fastest-streamed artists to debut within the last decade and, at least far as sales-equivalent numbers go, outperforms numbers generated by her Atlantic Records sibling Lil Kim on a pure sales front.

In other iTunes chart news, Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Megatron’ currently sits at #13 as Katy Perry‘s ‘Never Really Over’ holds #21 . On lower ground, Halsey’s ‘Nightmare‘ occupies #26 while Chris Brown‘s and Drake‘s ‘No Guidance’ sits at #49.

  4. Mary Contrary June 25, 2019

    But Nicki is outselling her 😂. Read the article again. Press is #59 and Megatron is #13. So once again Nicki fans are buying the music and Cardi clowns will support their fave when it’s free. It’s so sad.

Mine you cardi hasn’t even release the video & when she does we all know press is going to out perform megaflop on iTunes its just a matter of time

  5. Dancing King June 25, 2019

  6. Urg June 25, 2019

    Was this post really necessary?

    CARDI’s PRESS SINGLE IS A SEMINAL EFFORT IN DISTINGUISHING HER VOICE, PRESENCE, ARTISTRY & LIKENESS from the other freshman female dwellers of the rap game. Cardi is poised to echo the greatness of those women in hip-Hop who understood that their comrades in the industry deserved as much praise as their own unique talents. Cardi allows her music to place her ahead of the pack, while still reaching a hand to help the others cross. PRESS tells the sonic story that despite her goodness and raw efforts, she continues to stand as the target of jealousy, hate & the insecurities of her less than stellar contemporaries. This single is laced in Ann authoritative power — a Sum of pent up frustration & feelings of being fed up. But let it not bother you High Priestess Cardi! The public and critics alike, are holding you high amongst the ranks. Let this single and the album to come, cement your status and true HIP HOP royalty. YOUR TIME IS NOW!!

    let the press HEADLINE that!!

    • SMH June 25, 2019

      Too bad the charts don’t reflect this essay.

  8. Jury dooty June 25, 2019

    • Barbie Tingz June 25, 2019

      Put this dissertation on paper, print it and give it to Kim fans so they can dry their tears with it.

    • ….. June 25, 2019

      Sis Brent Christopher u need to calm down!! Press aint doing all that well on the carts. Hopefully the BET awards performance and accompaning vedio will bring it back up or else it will end up like Wish Wish off the charts.

  11. Barbie Tingz June 25, 2019

    This is quite embarrassing. So Lil Kim fans spend their time supporting Cardi only to help them outperform their fav? A crying shame if I ever knew one. You were hoping Cardi would take Nicki’s spot but turns out it was Kim who should have been worried. Eaux neaux!

    • Pedonika June 25, 2019

      Kim, her impact and Legacy, her no 1 and GRAMMY have nothing to worry about.

      All of which Pedonika has NONE lmao

    • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

      How’s that embarrassing when Cardi B is well on her way to trumping Nicki sales the way she trumped Lil Kim sales? You’re a whole idiot. Log out of life 😭🤪

  12. JaylaTooBad June 25, 2019

    Y’all always bring Nicki up when y’all mention this non talented h** this b**** ain’t grind from the mud like Nicki this b**** made it off TV from her dumb ass non educated personality!!

    • Barbie Tingz June 25, 2019

      Say it again! She’s a lowly girl.

  13. AdeleFan June 25, 2019

    I know this article was made to put down Cardi n kim because they performed at the Bet awards n they’re nicki’s enemies n this blog is a nicki fan. Let me school y’all we are living in a STREAMING era. Newer artists benefits more from streaming while older artists benefits more from PURE sales. Taylor Swift SoNG sold more than lil nasx song yet lil nas x is #1 while Taylor is #2. Dummies People are streaming music more than buying it.

    • Bey St!ng June 25, 2019

      So you’re ok with the fact that Kim paved the way with pure sales only to have some new chick “outsell” with free streams. This my friends is why Kim and her fans are always being cheated. What was the name of the book she was writing again? Exactly. The Beyhive would never.

      • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

        Whether it be Cardi B or any other rap b****… it don’t matter stupid. STREAMING is what’s in now. Kick rocks and throw a fit 😭

  14. NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

    What a try-hard article. 😂😂😂 You can tell they all the way pressed at thatBOTTOMjuice oh Lawd. First off, sales accolades are meant to be broken so nobody stressing over it. Lil Kim a legend in her own right, y’all need to be worried over Cardi B trumping Nicki sales because she’s the only female rapper who brags about it! My real rap queens got timeless hits. So dumb I swear 😂

    • Barbie Tingz June 25, 2019

      I have to laugh. IOP hasn’t sold in almost two years what PF sold in one week. Keep trying though hunneh!

      • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

        IOP outsold QUEEF. Laugh now cuz you gon be crying in the car later trollop. 😂😂😂😂Cardi killed Nicholas’ career and ain’t nothing you garb h*** can do about it except troll social media. Y’all a dying breed please know BARBageddpn coming to wipe the rest of y’all vermin out like the holocaust. Can’t wait! 😜

      • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

        Imagine singing the lyrics from Barbie Bin at the top of your lungs…

        I’mma cut that b****, gut that b****…”

        Only to realize Nicholas states in the corner. The b**** wants street cred so bad, nobody takes hold seriously especially not your white ass. That’s why Lookin ass, Pills and Abortion and all her other real rap Cuts all flopped. No gimmick = no sales 😂🤪

      • Dc June 25, 2019

        Cd sold 10 years ago why u comparing

    • Grand to be Grande June 25, 2019

      If Cardi is so popular why is she scared to do a solo tour? After all, we all know artists make more from touring than sales. Is it because she knows she couldn’t fill the seats in a Planned Parenthood even if her lifetime supply of h***** ointment depended on it?

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian 🙋🏿‍♀️iSlay🙅🏿‍♀️ TROLLmine Rasputia on the daily 💁🏿‍♀️ June 25, 2019

        Almost Nobody does a tour on their first album. Rihanna, Mariah, Ariana grande, Usher, Janet Jackson, Whitney Houston, Jay z… idk why you would expect her to be doing that so soon. She’s literally one album in and making coins left and right everywhere else.

      • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

        Don’t worry about Cardi worry about the baby in Onika stomach we gon drop kick. That personal life gon in complete SHAMBLES chiiileeew oooooweeee 🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤪🤡🤡🤡😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😭😭😭😭😭😭

  15. Jennifer June 25, 2019

    Someone said Cardi is on her way to beating Nicki’s sales and I had to chuckle about it over afternoon tea. Even if you took streams away from the both of them Nicki’s worst selling album has sold more than Invasion of Privacy. It’s just so funny to see people say Onika is done yet can’t explain how her song is #13 and Monostat B’s song is about to fall out of the top 50 even after BET. Maybe she should encourage her fans to pay for her music like she used to ask men to pay for her 🐱.

    • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

      Yes chuckle over afternoon. I know your ass is white cuz only a Becky would say some white ppl sh!t like that. Y’all the same ones who only f*ck with chicken wing chain Nicki doing EDM. Well Margaret, those days are over because now she has to prove herself doing hip hop records since there’s female rap competition. Don’t expect another Star ships soon, Betty Anne. That would be career suicide at this point? No more white America gimmick dollars for Onika 😂😂😂😭😭😂😭😂

      • Jennifer June 25, 2019

        You think I’m white because I drink tea? Poor thing. This tells me all I need to know about Cardi and the Roaches.

      • U need help June 25, 2019

        Both u and ??? Have got to be the most toxic mental patients I n this site. Y’all make this comment section so unpleasent.

  16. Jasmine Da Bi Asian 🙋🏿‍♀️iSlay🙅🏿‍♀️ TROLLmine Rasputia on the daily 💁🏿‍♀️ June 25, 2019

    Cardi is slaying! She got rap dudes doing choreography again like back in the day, and the crowd LOVED IT! That’s huge.

  17. Just Sayin’ June 25, 2019

    Seems as if Cardi is suffering from the second album curse and I don’t hope thaf is not the case. I think that u guys on this site used Nicki’s song as clickbait which is pretty low

    • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

      Let’s not that talk about how St Nick pandered to white America with Roman Retarded; you know the album she admits was a total miss herself. Take away all the pop sh!t and it’s a DUB. At least a Cardi don’t gotta resort to pop gimmicks to sell records. Female rap has come to far to settle for Onika’s watered down pop rap standards. 💯 And it’s true because if your fave really set the bar then EVERY rap b**** would be doing whoel EDM/pop songs to sell. 8x platinum selling Bodak Yellow says hi. 😜

      • Just Sayin’ June 25, 2019

        Go seek help I think u have an obsession with Nicki Minaj that requires some serious professional help.

      • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

        You have no response because I’m right. Know-your-place. 😂😂😂😭😂😂😂

      • Just Sayin’ June 25, 2019

        It more like I won’t wsste my time and energy on a mentally ill troll who obviouly don’t have a life outside trolling a low ass traffic site like bye gurl bye

      • Beam Me Up Scotty June 25, 2019

        But Cardi has been resorting to pop gimmicks. “Press” is not doing well because it’s hard rap.

      • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

        “Hard Rap” that outsold all of Nicki’s hard rap attempts. Bodak yellow was hard rap as well. How are you queen of rap when your hard rap don’t sell? 😂

  18. NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

    Anyhoo I’m done committing mass murder on you garb h***. Press video out tomorrow and unlike St snick, we know it’s gon be a MOVIE!! Bardi alwys brings the visuals and cinematography!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

    • Jennifer June 25, 2019

      Ran out of data? See you next month. 😂

  19. Erica June 25, 2019

    Nicki fans y’all say this as if the singles have been out for the same amount of time 😂😂😂 that’s a joke in itself, press stayed in the top ten for more than a week while megaflop has already drop out. Mine you cardi hasn’t even release the video & when she does we all know press is going to out perform megaflop on iTunes its just a matter of time

    • Urg June 25, 2019

      Stop lying please😑😑😑….Press debuet at #16 on the hot 100 then dropped to #43 and now has fallen to #60 so please don’t go there u don’t belive me check billboard site

      • Erica June 25, 2019

        Sis i was talking on iTunes but go ahead

  20. Dc June 25, 2019

    Damn Megatron fell off that hard already 😂😂

  21. Dc June 25, 2019

    We cardi fans shouldn’t even entertain this if cardi never has another hit again she’s already done more in 10 years years than nicki 3 number 1 s and a Grammy case closed.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty June 25, 2019

      That’s some BS. No way has she done more for the culture than Nicki Minaj. She doesn’t even write her own raps.

      • June 25, 2019

        Exactly.

      • NickiMinajisCancelled June 25, 2019

        Don’t speak for our culture you culture vulture. St Nick still ain’t do s*** for the culture or female rap unity. She’s a whole pop star who chases clout and never leads the pack.
