‘Move Ya Hips’: Nicki Minaj Fans Step Out With Stellar Numbers

Published: Tuesday 4th Aug 2020 by David

After picking up two number one singles this year Nicki Minaj loyalists have their eye on a third.

Full story below….

Minaj’s brand new effort is an A$AP Ferg feature named ‘Move Ya Hips‘ which followed the release of the two #1s the rapper earned with Doja Cat and Tekashi 69.

Perhaps best known for their ability to carry a single to glory on the wings of pure sales, the rapper’s fans have unified once again to push ‘Hips’ to the top of the Billboard Hot 100….or at least close to it.



The plan to support the song the good old fashioned way seems to be working. For, the single is currently placed at #4 on iTunes (outselling tracks unleashed by BTS, Jason Aldean, Blake Shelton & Lewis Capaldi) and has been streamed over 15 million times across all streaming platforms.

A third of figure can be found on Spotify where the track has earned a little over $20,000 since its due date.



Why they have decided to prioritise pure sales and not streaming figures?

Two reasons. The first?

The group established itself as a record-buying support base at the tail-end of the noughties (and the start of the twenty-tens) when the rapper’s was charged with competing in a world dominated by Beyonce, Kesha, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Rihanna.

The second?

150 streams is equivalent to one traditional unit, which means that the power still lies in the purchase…even in a DSP-dominated market.

      But why? Didn’t we want artists to stop using bundles for numbers? Now her fan base is supporting their artist by buying the song so I don’t get the issue

  6. POPS+Muva August 4, 2020

    NOT trying to be shady but due to Cardi’s break from music is the reason why Nicki got a little shine again but now that Cardi announced her comeback we waiting on Hip Hop’s IT girl

    • Honey Child August 4, 2020

      Is that why Atlantic has cut her budget?

      • POPS+Muva August 4, 2020

        @ Honey Child and you would know Atlantic cut her budget? do you work for atlantic? are you on their payroll? do you have access to their bank account?

    • Beam Me Up Scotty August 4, 2020

      Nicki has always been the IT girl. Cardi was just s u c k i n g d i c k s on the side for singles.

      • Monica4Life August 4, 2020

        It girl where?

      • Fancy BISH August 4, 2020

        IT girl in y’all minds 😂 When Nicki was coming up Katy was on fire, Bey was on fire Gaga was on fire, Taylor was on fire, Adele was on fire, Rihanna was on fire and Ariana was coming up! Not too much has changed! Don’t forget 😂

    The thing is Nicki and her fans are from an era where people actually go out to the stores and buy music or buy music off the internet. They know how to buy music the old fashion way. it’s them and Nicki against the world basically.

  8. Flopcki August 4, 2020

    How powerful can the Barbs really be?????
    Nicki has YET to get a solo #1. Queen flopped and it’s accompanying tour was canceled. The Bardi Gang, Hive and Swifties would NEVERR!

    • Monica4Life August 4, 2020

      Facts were stated okurr

  9. High Price August 4, 2020

    I like the joint.

  10. Dc August 4, 2020

    This s*** not going number 1 her fans are pathetic 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

  11. Misty Knight August 4, 2020

    She’ll go to #1 as a solo act: The SOLO lover of pedos and rapists.

  12. Tori August 4, 2020

    The gag is…NONE OF THEM CARED ABOUT THIS SONG UNTIL CARDI SND MAG ANNOUNCED #WAP. How supportive are y’all if you could care less until 2 other females announce their release? How is she the “queen” if y’all only go this hard for her FEATURES and not her SOLO singles? Honestly, she went #1 twice due to features with artist with big fan bases yet ALL OF HER SOLO MUSIC FAILS…WHAT IS THE REASON? The Barbz are so toxic but so is Nicki 🤷🏾‍♂️.

    • Juice box 🧃 August 4, 2020

      Yep you real mad the queen will continue to win

  13. ForTheSlowOnes August 4, 2020

    Let’s get it! 🔥

  14. tyty August 4, 2020

    Why are barbs more invested in her singles that’s are features and not her solo material since Queen? Taylor swift will hold on to her number 1 and depending how good Cardi new single is. Good luck barbz.

    • Michael August 4, 2020

      Well if you payed attention to her songs that were released there have only been 2 solo songs since queen dropped, megatron and yikes. Both songs actually did quite well, but there was no real push for those to be her first number one single. When say so remix came out we seen our chance and we pounces on it. With pure sales we pushed the Queen to the top of the charts, read the articles. We then realized what we were capable of once we litterally put our money where our mouth was and bought the Queen her first number one. Moving forward we did the same thing with Trollz, which debuted at number one solely due to pure sales. Believe me once she drops this new album, that firat single will be number one, cause thats what we want for her. Furthermore, although she was a feature on say so, she was a lead artist on Trollz. So give credit where credit is due. And wap just feuled the flame. At this point we want every single she drops to go number one. We were already campaigning when the song leaked way before its official release. Once WAP came it was just more reason to try and secure it. And Move Ya Hips is a hit you should have a listen. “Already bodied plain jain and we mobbing now!” We have realized our power and we will continue to utilize it. Just sit back, take a chill pill, and relax. The Queen will still reign here.
