Much like the fan bases of yesteryear, Nicki Minaj‘s support group showcases its strength, power and dominance by taking the rapper’s music to the top of the charts.
Today, after handing her two number one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, they have done the same again on iTunes.
Full story below…
‘Move Ya Hips‘ was recorded and released by Minaj and her pals ASAP Ferg & MADEINTYO on July 20th.
As reported here yesterday, Nicki’s fans hatched a plan to support the single in a traditional fashion by making iTunes (and not streaming services) their weapon of choice for their charts.
Today they have learned that their efforts to elevate the track have been fruitful.

‘Hips‘ is currently the highest-selling single in the country and extends the rapper’s lead as the highest-selling female MC of all time with figures which eclipsed tracks released by Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Cardi B, Dan + Shay, Jason Derulo and Da Baby.
Anyone hoping to match or surpass Minaj’s latest win with streaming figures may have a hard time doing so if her winning streak continues.
For, 1 traditional purchase made by the rapper’s fans on iTunes is worth more than 100 unique streams garnered by a competitor’s track on the likes of Spotify or Apple.
