Seeing green is exactly what detractors of Nicki Minaj will be doing once they glance at the refreshed Hot 100.
See why inside.
As reported here, Minaj made history when her 2009 mixtape, ‘Beam Me Up Scotty,’ beamed to the #2 spot on the week’s Billboard 200 after its 2021 commercial release.
Among the three new songs added to the set was the Drake and Lil Wayne-assisted ‘Seeing Green,’ which debuted at #12 on the refreshed Hot 100. Its impressive entry was fueled by a combo of handsome streaming figures and approximately 34,000 digital downloads – the most of any song this week.
Elsewhere on the charts, ‘Fractions’ and ‘Crocodile Teeth (Remix)’ followed at #52 and #100 respectively, while ‘Itty Bitty Piggy’ from the original incarnation of the mixtape made its chart debut at #82.
With ‘Green,’ the Rap Queen colors in her 39th career top 20 hit – the most of any female rapper. Among all women, only Taylor Swift (51), Madonna (44), and Rihanna (43) have more top 20 hits.
Overall, the four songs bring her Hot 100-charting total to 118 entries – the most of any female rapper and second only to Swift among all women.
