As it’s been teased since the summer, Nicki Minaj fans (affectionately called #Barbs) apparently couldn’t wait to get their eyes and ears on the latest from the Rap diva – which comes courtesy of her feature on producer extraordinaire Mike Will Made It‘s latest single, ‘What That Speed About?!’
Released November 6 at 12am, the song hadn’t even been available for 24 hours before it zoomed to the top of real-time sales tallies, where it’s been a mainstay for most of the day.
At writing, ‘Speed’ sits atop the real-time iTunes charts in the ‘all genres’ and ‘Rap’ categories.
A taste of the work set to line Mike Will’s forthcoming third LP, should the NBA YoungBoy-led tune continue to perform at this rate it should make quite the impressive entrance on the Hot 100 week after next.
Its entry would be a historic one for Minaj as it would mark her 114th hit on the tally – breaking a tie with Taylor Swift for the most Hot 100 appearances among women (click here to read).
