Hi, hater! Bye, hater!
Detractors who prayed who for 6ix9ine and Nicki Minaj‘s reunion single, ‘Trollz,’ to miss the top spot on the Hot 100 will be sorely disappointed to learn the tune is sitting atop the refreshed tally.
“6ix9ine scores his first Hot 100 No. 1. He tallied two prior top 10s, each of which reached No. 3: “FEFE,” featuring Minaj and Murda Beatz, in August 2018, and “Gooba,” which debuted at No. 3 on the May 23-dated chart, five weeks ago.
Minaj earns her second Hot 100 No. 1 (and 19th top 10) and first topper in a lead role. She previously ruled as featured on Doja Cat’s “Say So,” which led the May 16 chart, following the arrival of its Minaj remix. With “Say So,” Minaj set the record for the most Hot 100 appearances (109) needed for a first No. 1.
Starting with 116,000 sold, “Trollz” boasts the highest weekly sales sum since Taylor Swift’s “Me!,” featuring Brendon Urie, soared in with 193,000 (May 11, 2019).”
Those record sales were in great part powered by over a dozen physical/digital combination offerings (priced from 69 cents to $10) during the tracking week, including an alternate version released June 16.
