Nicki Minaj’s new single ‘Megatron‘ slipped and fell to dangerously low levels on the Billboard Hot 100 when it lost its Top 20 spot and fell out of the Top 90 just weeks after its release.
How her fans are remedying the matter? By storming radio.
If I ever get another request to play Megatron, I’m mushing that person out my face!!!!!!!

Full story below…
The single has generated over $700,000 worldwide since June 21st 2019 and earned impressive opening week chart positions thanks to a campaign which saw the rapper appear on ‘The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon’.
Unfortunately, interest in the single waned in its second week and left the song forced to fend for itself. As a result, it was unable to sustain its glory and found itself clinging on for dear life at #92…72 spots lower than what it was the week before.
Fortunately, there is light at the end of the commercial tunnel.
HITS Daily Double reports that the song is still rising on radio despite its chart slump thanks to fresh support it has picked up from ten major stations across the country.

Their plan is working.
For, their requests have forced radio to meet demand by increasing the number of spins it receives each day and pulled it back into iTunes Top 100.
