Nicki Minaj is thankful.
The rap queen has broken a two-decade-old Hot 100 record; her collaborative single, Trollz, with 6ix9ine,debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart this week, marking second for Minaj no. 1 record in space of six weeks.
Reacting to this, Minaj shared a one-minute video on Twitter, in which she thanked her fanbase, the Barbz, for their support.
“Congratulations Barbz, y’all did this with no playlisting and no radio, and it’s just not happening in 2020,” she explained. “All the records on the top of the chart right now are doing that with heavy playlisting and heavy radio. So, for us to do that, debuting, that’s insane. I love you guys so much. We just did the highest pure sales of the year, of every song released, and you can’t buy that. That’s fan love.”
She continued, “There’s a couple things I want to get off my chest though, certain things that have been going on this industry for just way too long,” she continued. “I think it’s time for me to speak on it a little bit. Y’all know 6ix9ine gonna be doing a lot this week too. So, be prepared for that. I love you. I love you so f—ing much.”
