Nicki Minaj has entered number one before now but not as a solo artist. She reached number one with songs like the Trollz, which was a superb collaboration with 6ix9ine. She also reached number one as a featured artist on Doja Cat’s hit Say So.
Nicki Minaj’s biggest solo hit before now was Anaconda which was released in 2014. The song peaked at number two and was widely celebrated and loved. Super Freaky Girl samples Rick James’s – Super Freak, and in the song, Nicki boasted about her sexual talent, similar to what James did in 1981.
Nicki’s version is produced by Dr Luke, who has been in the spotlight for the wrong reasons. But the musician has always denied the accusations and sued his accuser, Kesha, for defamation. Due to the accusations and counter-accusations, many musicians have decided not to work with Dr Luke.
Finally, Minaj is set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award this weekend at the MTV Awards. Nicki will also perform and co-host the event.
Hopefully, Nicki would not be mobbed again now that her song is sitting fine on number one. she was recently mobbed in.
