Nicki Minaj’s ‘Megatron’ Slips Out Of The iTunes Top 100

Published: Sunday 7th Jul 2019 by David

Nicki Minaj‘s new single ‘Megatron’ is need of a super boost if it is to maintain its success on the Billboard Hot 100.

Find out why below…

The rapper stands as the highest selling and highest streamed female rapper in chart history but has seen the lion’s share of her chart success generated by pure sales.

With this in mind, some fans are concerned that not enough is being done to keep the track in the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 20 after it slipped and fell out of the iTunes Top 100 today.

The song’s pure sales crushed figures earned by each and every one of her fellow lady lyricists this year but now finds itself in danger of becoming a short-lived hit now that its pure sales have dipped to surprising lows.

See below…

In its opening week the jam earned over $500,000 globally ( $99,000 of this came from the United States) and extended her reign as the highest-selling female rapper in all of the markets in all major music markets.

Alas, it now seems that her fans have dropped the ball.

Will they be able to pull things back together in time for the next Hot 100 update?

In other chart news, Lil Nas’ ‘7’ spends this week at #2 on the Billboard 200 with total sales of 58,000 units as his ‘Rodeo’ sister Cardi B sees her album ‘Invasion of Privacy’ hold a Top 40 position for another week after shifting 534 pure copies in the last week.

Its sales when streaming figures are attached? 13,063.

    I don’t know how many times I have to say it. Nicki fans are forcing the song it just isn’t working. 🤷🏾‍♀️

    Nicki boo instead of celebrating yourself and shading others mama enjoy that beautiful man of yours

    • Jasmine July 7, 2019

      TGJ should pick a side. One writer is giving props to Nicki for Megatron’s success and now David is attacking the same song as if it is the only song that fell out of itunes 100. Songs come and go. ‘Thank you, Next.’

    • Stallion ❤️😱🥰😜 July 7, 2019

      Cardi sold 500 copies though 😂

      • Brent Christopher July 7, 2019

        for an album that has been out for a YEAR and a HALF!!

        I guess you missed the part where her streams after 18 months of the album being in circulation, total more than 13,000 units.

        Keep in mind.. LIL NAS X (the biggest artist on the scene in our present day) has only sold 58,000 copies of his new LP in its second week of release.

        13,000 VS 58,000

        79th week VS 2nd week.

        CARDI IS WINNING!!

      Highest charting song on iTunes solo by a female rapper over 30! #Queen

      • Janeeva July 7, 2019

        B**** you think that’s an accomplishment? She’s the only female rapper over 30 still putting out music. Lol. These new girls she continues to bash and shade are outcharting and out lasting Miss Minaj. It’s time for her to eat some humble pie and step her cookies up

      • Caleb July 7, 2019

        😂

  7. Lil nas tee aws July 7, 2019

    I just downloaded it.

  8. Jay Cudi July 7, 2019

    Her fans didn’t drop the ball, SHE dropped the ball by putting that trash out. She’s been putting trash out for the last couple of years and I’m glad her “fans” are finally gonna stop supporting crap just cuz she puts it out

  9. Fancy BISH July 7, 2019

    ✅ ✅ ✅ 💯

  10. Yolanda July 7, 2019

    Nicki got a shoe thrown at her, in public, at a high-profile gala.

  11. Yolanda July 7, 2019

    Like Cardi said, I’m from the streets, I won’t call the cops, step outside or STFU!

    • Stallion ❤️😱🥰😜 July 7, 2019

      500 copies though.

      • Caleb July 7, 2019

        And still in the top 30 on billboard while Queen is barely in the top 150.

  12. AdeleFan July 7, 2019

    U kno a song is flopping when an artist have to start a challenge just to get people to listen to it. Normally challenges are started by regular ppl and fans this lady is paying people to partake. Like damn we get it the song is done in two weeks. It’s predicted to drop 54 places on billboard that’s from #20 t0 #74. I think she made history

    • MessyBoots July 7, 2019

      Bwahahaha! 👸🏿🤣🤣

    • Dc July 7, 2019

      She’s actually paying them soo desperate 😂😂😂

  13. Shantel July 7, 2019

    ATT: Nicki fans… This might sting about so read with caution. The intention is not to offend but to highlight truths. This was the worst thing I read today. This woman is applauded for calling out people who haven’t “bowed” down to her. In what way is that good? All it proves is that she is bigger brat than we thought. I’ve never been a Taylor Swift fan ever, still am not but what she did was good and groundbreaking. What Nicki did is not. And don’t even begin to call it a race thing, I’m severely mixed raced (like literally a mix of almost everything) and I understand the troubles of being an ethnic woman, trust me. But her troubles all stem from her inability to share the spotlight and obsession with being the “queen”. She bashes woman like she’s playing whack a mole but runs to support any man regardless of how much trash he is. She says there’s so many female rappers who haven’t had her back and congratulated her… B*******. Anytime someone else comes along, she makes beef. Iggy Azalea came along and Nicki was a total b**** to her just because she felt threatened. Than she went on to diminish anything about Miss Iggy Azalea that she could. She was being a racist b**** too. Saying that some white girl is trying to rap. Like what actual s*** was that? Just because Iggy wanted to make music she got bashed. Cardi B comes along and was fire like hell and Nicki suddenly gets her back up. Cardi is so much better than Nicki and she knows that so instead of supporting a fellow female, she drags them down. And don’t even mention Lil Kim. Nicki didn’t do s*** for the female rappers in the rap game except imply that you gotta sleep your way up and be ratchet enough to deny it. Now Lil Kim was revolutionary. So many female rappers of Lil Kim’s time paved the way collectively for females in the future. Nicki was not the first female to ever rap. Lauryn Hill rapped too. Remy Ma was and continues to be a bad b**** in her rap Game despite her troubles….. MISSY FREAKING ELLIOT!!!! now Dr Missy is a queen and maintained that status without shaking her ass, bashing her fellow femme rappers and being a male crazy chick. Also, Taylor was calling out bad behavior by a man… Nicki blamed a baby and a young ass girl for her album sucking in the sales department and also constantly works with and support bad men. Totally ignores the fact that Chris Brown is a literal piece of s*** homophobic abuser and let’s not even talk about the man she’s with right now. When you as a woman are able to lift up your fellow female artists, I can appreciate you and people can even call you a queen. However throwing a b**** fit everytime someone better or even just new comes along and doesn’t kiss your feet… That I can’t support. I realise that it might seem hypocritical to some that I want her to support woman but I just bashed her… I didn’t, I called out her b******* because she’s bashed so many woman before. The only time she does that to a man is when his album sales does better than hers. I’m deeply sorry to the Nicki Minaj fan reading this. I imagine it would break your heart but this woman is a fraud. And I only hope her ego can deflate for second long enough for her to realise that she can rely on her work and not her obsession to be on top. You can work alongside other female rappers even if they don’t worship the ground you walk on. Make art not hate Nicki. That is an ingredient for longevity and unwavering respect. When you earn the right to be called a queen, we shall all call you one without fault…but for now, focus on your work not this s***. Stop raising a false flag because people are listening to someone else. Try to make good music again for real instead of just calling people out…

      Tried to disrespect Taylor because Taylor wasn’t Swift enough.

      • Angeldoll July 8, 2019

        Lol😂

    • I SAID IT July 7, 2019

      Taylor Swift put Super Bass on the map. Ungrateful Nicki. Look, Nicki said no one liked her in high school or on any of her jobs. WHY should people like her now? Nicki knows she ain’t likable.

    • Lil nas tee aws July 7, 2019

      Damn you clocking her every move. Disgruntled fan huh?

  14. Tyty July 7, 2019

    Nicki is just cashing the karma check the universe wrote her 💁‍♀️🏽. I’m not sure what she expected the song is no different than the other crap she has put out in recent years. Her incessant need to be acknowledged as the queen and number 1 has unfortunately made her become a distasteful, arrogant, selfish, lunatic who if you don’t bow down she will attack. Her biggest mistake was going after cardi b it went downhill from there. Associating herself with s** offenders, murders etc…. It’s a PR nightmare. Had she humbled herself embraced competition she wouldn’t find herself in this position. Now with the flood gates open for female rappers. Nobody cares for an inflated plastic middle-aged Barbie with zero artistic growth.

    • Erica July 7, 2019

      Damn no lies detected

  15. Stallion ❤️😱🥰😜 July 7, 2019

    Cardi only sold 500 copies this week? The peasants cried!

    • Caleb July 7, 2019

      So how many did Queef sell then? 100?

      • Fancy BISH July 7, 2019

      • Sahil Suvarna July 8, 2019

        You’re the most pressed rat out here. It’s a Nicki related post but still you roachgang come and talk sht as always! Get a f****** life! Tell your fav to fkn write a rap. She barely can even spell her name.

      • Caleb July 8, 2019

        I didn’t mention her first. The person I responded to did. Reading is essential.

  16. Jackx July 7, 2019

    The song is weak.
    to me it comes off trying to hard to stay relevant. With whole turn up when I’m drinking crap. that chorus is so overrated and played out. Nicki is better when she doesn’t try so hard like verse in familia. That Barbie and queen s*** is old🤮. She needs better writers, wardrobe, wigs, when she gets it right maybe she’ll soar again if it’s not too late then.
    #switchitup

    • I SAID IT July 7, 2019

      Nicki can’t change or reinvent her style because she never invented a style to reinvent. She went on Jimmy Fallon with nothing to promote but Lil Kim’s BET Awards 2019 blue carpet hairstyle.

      • Kiri KMG July 7, 2019

        B*******.
        So was most of your commentary.
        😝 😅 😂 🤣 😭

    • Kiri KMG July 7, 2019

      Please do not get the “Cocksucker Award) on Queen Radio.
      😭 🤣 😂 😅 😁
      Your comments are trash.

  17. FELICIA July 7, 2019

    I’m not surprised, it’s a terrible song. I was never a fan but I do enjoy several of her older songs/videos that were not pop oriented but real, authentic rap/hip-hop.

  18. Kiri KMG July 7, 2019

    Now wait a minute…..there are hundreds if not thousands of new music (world wide) coming out every week. Most singles, MOST don’t even chart on BILLBOARD. That’s right, most songs DO NOT chart. So now Megatron goes to the BILLBOARD 200 chart. She’s still Queen. 🤔 🙂 KMG

  19. Dc July 7, 2019

    Oops where barbs now 😂😂

    • Fancy BISH July 7, 2019

      Dey gone 🤣

  20. Elvin July 7, 2019

    Nicki should just drop something else. It’s just a buzz single. I like it hence the fact I bought the single and video but it’s just not single that’s destined to be a smash, more of a fun summer song. The numbers it did are impressive tho and prove the public’s interest is there even after 11 years in the industry, as it should be, she’s extremely entertaining and groundbreaking artistes. Btw, I don’t wanna hear about Cardi b. She’s a fad and insanely mediocre, shes sustained by a payola and the sheeple who blindly follow trends and support her simply to spite Nicki and her fans. Meghan the stallion is dope too, I’m anticipating seeing her growth.

  21. Megatron July 7, 2019

    Lies. It’s #14 on the iTunes Hip Hop/Rap charts. FAKE NEWS. Y’all some HATERS!!

    • Brent Christopher July 7, 2019

      the GENRE specific charts DO NOT COUNT, fool!

      in the real world, critics nor consumers are impressed by songs that too the tally of rhythm & blues, country, jazz, or bluegrass listings.

      those charts are as basic & irrelevant as a new album being featured on the front page of the TIDAL website. lol!!

      MEGAWRONG has fallen out of the TOP 100 of the MAIN iTunes chart, as it will soon miss the HOT 100 on Billboards MAIN chart by the middle of week #3.

      do you u n d e r s t a n d . . . ?

        Genre specific doesn’t count?? How doesn’t it? If that chart is full of her peers but it doesn’t count. What an Idiot also of only top 100 chart count then she’s still doing good. Y’all just hate Nicki soooo much. She been on since 2009 and ain’t going anywhere.

  22. Young Chung July 7, 2019

    She still Queen, even her flops are top 20
    😋

    • Monica’s Dove July 7, 2019

      Top 20 is irrelevant when the single drops off of the charts completely by week three. 😂😂😂

  23. Angeldoll July 8, 2019

  25. Angeldoll July 8, 2019

    Nicki is her own down fall and she have no one to blame but herself. She been on top for so long that she thought that she was untouchable. In stead of being greatful for her success and stay humble, she went after other female artist and tear them down. I use to be a Nicki fan, but I don’t like her personality and the way she are toward other people, especially women. She never been anout uplifting and embracing others, now her evil ways have caught up with her. I don’t feel sorry for her at all.

  26. Jasmine1999 July 8, 2019

    What’s crazy is all these fake Nicki haters who are really fans Caleb and Brent the local undercover stans love to claim iTunes Charts doesn’t matter now it does lmao hypocrites. Karma will also bite y’all in the ass since you are living off of someone’s supposed downfall

  27. JaylaTooBad July 8, 2019

    Press is flopping so y’all need to shut the f up y’all hating ass dusty h*** this is just the beginning the Queen will get back to the TOP she has the hits coming !!

    • Monica’s Dove July 8, 2019

      The delusion. Nicki ain’t topping anything in 2019. She’s done.

    • Dc July 8, 2019

      But press is not number 104 though once a song with a video falls as hard as Megatron no coming back it flopped hard 😂

  28. Shayla Queen July 8, 2019

    The worst trash she put out yet

  29. High Price July 8, 2019

    Damn! I’m not even a Nicki fan but I f**** with it. With many other songs literally PUSHED on her label for other artists, I don’t see why they’re not pushing this song. The song is a bop! Far from basic.

  30. MissGuided July 8, 2019

    ACTUALLY, Megatrash dropped 72 spots and is sitting prettily at #92 on the Hot 100. Congrats Barbz!
