Nicki Minaj and her ability to drop hits can’t be questioned although there have been doubts about her validity as a pure Hip Hop artist by some. The Queens rapper’s shot at rival Remy Ma, “No Frauds,” hit the top of the Hip Hop and R&B digital sales chart in its debut, knocking Bruno Mars’ hit “That’s What I Like” to #2 status with Canadian crooner The Weeknd creeping on a come up with “I Feel It Coming” at the third spot.
Minaj, no stranger to dominating charts, has all the songs from her “3 Pack From Paris” singles release sitting in the top five for sales this week. Migos is still holding strong in the top 10 with “Bad and Boujee” and Future’s “Mask Off” dropped slightly from last week.
Nicki Minaj Debuts At #1 With “No Frauds”
Despite some considering Nicki Minaj’s “No Frauds” reply track to Remy Ma’s “SHETHER” as lukewarm, the Barbs got behind the Lil Wayne and Drake-assisted single with 78,861 sold in its first week. The debut knocks the resilient Bruno Mars down a peg and it appears the single’s momentum spread to Minaj’s other “3 Pack From Paris” tracks, which all shared in the success.
