Hot 100: A$AP Ferg & Nicki Minaj’s ‘Move Ya Hips’ Suffers 80-Spot Drop in Week 2

Published: Tuesday 18th Aug 2020 by Rashad

Once projected to be ASAP Ferg‘s first top 5 hit (as we reported here), ‘Move Ya Hips’ – the rapper’s reunion single with Nicki Minaj – has seemingly been making all the wrong moves since its July 30 premiere.

Debuting at #19 on the Hot 100 (as we reported here), fans of Minaj – affectionately called #Barbz –  asserted ASAP was to blame for the modest opening due to his team failing to report web site sales of the tune.

While that claim has been unsubstantiated, it didn’t stop Ferg from being the brunt of their criticism.  Undoubtedly, that judgment will heighten once #Barbz take a look at the newly printed Hot 100.

Details inside:

The refreshed Hot 100 reveals ‘Move Ya Hips’ moved from #19 to #99 in its second week on the chart.

Making an 80-spot drop, the Frankie P-produced bop was originally expected to move upward thanks to the debut of its accompanying music video (seen above).  However, given its unveiling occurred on a Wednesday (which is considered late in the tracking week), the true effect of its streaming won’t be seen until next week.

The downward mobility of the MadeinTYO-assisted ‘Move’ mirrors that of Minaj’s last duet, ‘Trollz’ (with 6ix9ine) which debuted at #1 on the Hot 100 only to fall completely off the tally in its 5th week.

    Remember the Barbz gave up on it from that nonsense with the numbers, and that damn ridiculous video.

    • Fancy BISH August 19, 2020

      Yes! 😂 And let’s talk about something ELSE *Teresa voice* 🤣 I congratulated Nicki on her first #1, but only after TWO WEEKS Nicki was NEVER credited for Say So EVER AGAIN on Billboard…FACTS 😂 Beyonce has been credited with Savage SINCE the remix dropped! 💯 The Barbz need to face the truth TAHDAY 🤣 💋

  2. Biancacook August 18, 2020

    shes not supported for music she’s supported to out do the next one. thats why the numbers drop severly. nicki may be talented but at the end of the day u gotta simply make good music that the general public likes if doin numbers is ur thing. cardi is literally making history as a female rapper and she earning it rightfully.

    • Ken August 18, 2020

      You said nothing but FACTS!

    • August 18, 2020

      So Cardi b is releasing good music in your eyes because that soft p*** she releases the other day, put up numbers, and went to one….sigh.

      • Dc August 18, 2020

        And is still maintaining and will be number 1 next week that’s staying power cardi has a hit not microwave popcorn

    • Meme August 18, 2020


      I wholeheartedly feel like Nickis music just doesn’t stick with the general public anymore. It’s not not, even tho she’s has more talent in her pinky finger than all these girls combined.

      Samething I always say about Beyonce. At the end of the day, talent only go so far…your music has to be on point of you tryna sell MUSIC.

      • tyty August 19, 2020

        Girl bye beyonce and Nicki are not in the same sentence savage remix was a hit because of beyonce and still in the top 20 right now. Beyonce was the 8th or 9th most listened to female on Spotify this week you tried it. The gift is number 2 on world albums

      • FRAUD August 19, 2020

        tyty : I would appreciate some apologies, remember that Clarksson thing? I’m waiting.

    • FRAUD August 19, 2020

      So damn true, no lies here.

    • you want this August 19, 2020

      Having a black female rapper occupy the pop space is not an insult, it’s an achievement which cardi b and the new gals get to benefit from.

      Do you think labels, magazines or radio would be opening wallets for wannabe or Instagram rappers if no one like had Nicki had put her hand up to take a seat at the table next to the Katy Perrys and gagas of the 10’s?

      Yall are delusional if you think cardi bs talent is what’s carrying quick come up.

    • Fancy BISH August 19, 2020

      Yes! 💯 Nicki needed better songs since forever lol…I have NEVER seen an artist have so many chart placements that don’t mean anything in ALL my life and I’m a child of the 80’s 🤣 What is Nicki trying to sell? 👀 Let’s be HONEST 🤣 Where are Nicki’s classic songs, albums and moments? Where dey at? 😂

  3. Clarks0o0ñ August 18, 2020

    Nicki has ruined her legacy chasing number 1’s.

    • George August 18, 2020

      She always has been chasing #1’s..but this time it feels different, like in a desperate way.When she went live defending 69.. that’s when I realize she would literally do anything for a #1

  4. Beam Me Up Scotty August 18, 2020

    Another blog post for the haters to latch on to. We don’t know this song. ASAP Ferg no support whatsoever. He took our money and ran. Video sucked.

    • Clarks0o0ñ August 18, 2020

      “We don’t know this song. ”

      If this song hit number one u wouldn’t be saying this.

      Gurl, dont be a clown.
      Embrace ur faves flops. Stop denying ur faves flops. Its embarrassing and its clown behaviour

      • Gag August 18, 2020

        You didn’t embrace Camilas lmao

      • Fancy BISH August 19, 2020

        @Clarkson, ✅ 💯 🤣
        @Gag, ✅ ✅ ✅ 💯 🤣

  5. George August 18, 2020

    Nicki should of retired when she said she was..She should of stayed low key for a few months then make a comeback announcing her pregnancy and new music coming.That would of had the whole world watching, her sales would of been through the Roof!…she needs a better team 😔

    • Shayla Queen 👑 August 18, 2020

      She’s a narcissistic attention-seeking blood-sucking w****

      • Shayla Queen 👑 August 18, 2020

        Her saying she was retiring was the same as if she said her ass was real

      • FRAUD August 19, 2020

        You know what? I do agree with you on that.

      • offset August 19, 2020

        That real ass ant keep ya man home? LOL

  6. Shayla Queen 👑 August 18, 2020

    Girl this is tired at this point. We done been knowing no one checking for her anymore except the Barbz and even they can’t hold her afloat. Sinking ship, chile.

  7. #WAP August 18, 2020

    To be the queen, your songs can’t free fall after 1 week 🤣 And to be the queen of hip hop, your biggest songs can’t be POP 🤣 And to release a song called “move ya hips”, you need to be able to actually move ya hips…and not give the illusion in a miniature pool 🤣🤣🤣


    • Fancy BISH August 18, 2020

      🤣 🤣 🤣 ✅ 💯

        Chile BYE, Nicki is NOT one of the MANY DESERVING BLACK MUSIC ARTISTS who should have Grammys! Anaconda? Starships? Chun Li? Roman’s Revenge? HELL TO THE NO! 🤣

      • motivation August 19, 2020

        U don’t get it do you? The Grammys ant it. Go head abbeys.

  8. #WAP August 18, 2020

    It’s 2018 all over again for Nicki…but worse this time 🤣

    • BardiWap August 18, 2020

      Yeah, this time it’s worse because Nicki is pregnant…she can’t do anymore twerkn music videos and get on Queen radio yelling anymore lol

      • Dc August 18, 2020

        I’m surprised Nicki didn’t induce her labor just to trend over cardi sad lady lol

    • offset August 19, 2020

      How sorry? Offset out creeping again?

  9. #WAP August 18, 2020

    What was it Nicki said to Lil Kim 9 years ago? “ Stupid ho shoulda befriended me then she coulda prolly came back.” 🤣🤣🤣 You stupid idiot! You should’ve befriended cardi instead of trying to ruin her. You ruined yourself h_oe! Look at you now! Karma.

    • Gag August 18, 2020

      She’s still relevant has you pressed! Youve been leaving numerous comments about her on many posts

      • FRAUD August 19, 2020

        WAP delievered straight facts here, you’re the one that’s pressed darling.

      • no frauds August 19, 2020

        Instant gratification and a quick come up can’t be used to denegrate hard work, talent and consistency in the real world. Talent and work ethic win always. So talk your s*** gag, we are here for it.

      • FRAUD August 19, 2020

        no frauds : you can be as much talented as you want, when you have a bad behavior, you f***** up your own work, ask Azealia Banks, the girl is more talented than any other female rapper but where is she? Nicki is discovering what karma is and all of her stans are mad about it. We love to see it.

      • flowers August 19, 2020

        Frauds – Stans are mad because cardis talent is AV but the saturation is heavy. Rap ant an aesthetic or social media currency. If in 2020 labels like Atlantic can buy rap culture to gain market share It a pretty sad state of affairs for hip hop.

        Lets not speculate. Talent is what got nicki a seat at the rap at the table & Its the reason why we should be talking about her 10 years + in. In 2007 no one was throwing budgets at female rappers like this and until 2017 no one was.

        We might not agree on cardi or nicki but one thing we can agree on tho Is Azealia banks. Tho she wasn’t made to be an industry plant – thats not how creatives work and im glad because her worst work has better cadence and coherency than anything anyone could make Cardi B or any of the new gals recite in a pink wig.

  10. Dc August 18, 2020

    Cardi will still be number 1 next week Drake b**** ass can’t handle the wap global smash poor barbz that 69 single got them thinking their lil tactics will work every time not 😂😂😂😂😂

  11. Monica4Life August 18, 2020

    Nicki the queen of big drops in the 2nd week. Girl you going out sad. Stay home and get that babies nursery together.

    • Aaliyah slayed Monica August 18, 2020

      You got some nerve. Monica hasn’t seen a chart outside of the AC charts in over 10 years. F*** off

      • FRAUD August 19, 2020

        LMAO this post is about Nicki or Monica? There’s no need to compare, you’re just pressed 😉

    • you want this August 19, 2020

      The only nursery rhymes here are cardi b’s bars. Can she even rap off the dome?

  12. flowers August 19, 2020

    Cardi is an industry plant. If your unfamiliar with the term, it’s the kind of artist that is plucked out of obscurity and given a new sound and aesthetic at the direction of their record label, then jammed down the throats of consumers through avenues like playlists and radio in the name of the “culture”.

    Where as Nicki is a talent who spent 10 years opening the doors and elevating the bar for female MCS with talent and skill. Going bar for bar against the greats and the guys to earn her seat at the table. Labels like Atlantic capitalise off of Nicki success and this movement with artists like Cardi who lower the bar and y’all lap it up. SMH

    • Petty Pendergast August 19, 2020

      The only female rapper that saw the same level of success as Nicki during her reign was iggy. All the other ones were flops. Cardi opened the door for more women rappers to succeed.

      • POPS+MUVA August 19, 2020

        Co-sign. Iggy had somewhat a little success before they turned on her. We had Dej Loaf , Young M.A and various others 1 hit wonders who never stuck around. Azelia Banks had a lot of talent but her mouth ruined her career before it began. Fast forward Cardi B enters the scene and outshines Nicki. Then Nicki goes on Apple Music radio say Cardi B didn’t show her genuine love… brings back memories? Boom karma hit Nicki for what she did to Lil Kim. One thing about the tables they always turn. Cardi B is Nicki Minaj’s karma. She was sent to end Nicki and she has rightfully done so. Ever since Cardi succeeded a handful of female rappers have also made it in the industry. Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, Mulatto, etc + many more. Cardi B opened the doors for female rappers to exist. Not Nicki Minaj. She spent all these years being selfish and thinking she has to be the only one. That’s why she’s over.

      • flowers August 19, 2020

        Like Cardi, Iggy also was an industry plant working on the same methodology. For the label, by the label.

        The Industry opened the door for more rappers and prioritised females in rap because of the unrealised potential Nicki Minaj achieved on the back of 10 years of consistent bars which led to her success.

        We have seen over the years how labels work to prioritise and mould females to replace the successful ones who have come before. This is no different. Cardi came out looking like Nicki who came out looking like Kim. Hell they even replace black artists with watered down white artists who have greater reach Iggy > Nicky. Britney >. Janet. And its not exclusive to woman either but its been happening for years Elvis > James Brown

        Cardi certainly is making the most of the momentum created before her but she ant opening no doors on a new aesthetic or on the innovation of her rap bars. You can say she’s utilising her social media currency to succeed as a rapper and some might say lowering the bar to make it possible for anyone to become a rapper but is that really complimentary? But none of these gals would be getting major label backing if it wasn’t for old gal Nickis hard work that y’all love to hate.

        Nicki is also the reason why your girl has investment from Atlantic as they compete against other labels for market share in the rap space because no one until now has been able to match the success. Facts.

      • Fancy BISH August 19, 2020

        @Petty Pendergast and POPS+MUVA, ya’ll better READ Mrs. Petty to the fckn GROUND 🤣 Damn! Keep that same energy Barbz, cause I REMEMBER EVERYTHING *SMACKS* lol 🤳🏽 💋 Hell, I joined this site in 2014 to primarily defend Iggy from what I saw was PURE HATE from the Barbz 💯 Now it’s 2020 and the bish dropping down the charts so fast that if you blink you might miss it 👀 📚🤣

      • ivory and ash August 19, 2020

        Sorry But flowers has you all on all counts…

      • Fancy BISH August 19, 2020
