“Super Freaky Girl,” Nicki Minaj’s newest single, has achieved platinum status in the US.
Just over two months after its debut, the Recording Industry Association of America on Wednesday certified the number-one song as platinum. Nicki Minaj has not responded to the song’s most recent achievement, but on Monday, she rejoiced that the song is still at the top of the charts despite having only been issued in early August.
“10 weeks in the TOP 10 of Billboard Hot 100. Debuted @ #1 & never left. Pretty epic. Thank you,” she wrote in a tweet to fans.
On the Billboard Hot 100 list, “Super Freaky Girl” had its No. 1 debut just two days after its August 12 release. The song is the most commercially successful one Minaj has released this year after selling more than 100,000 tracks in a week. Among a flurry of collaborations with about a dozen other musicians, it is also the only solo song she has recorded, demonstrating that her dominance can stand alone.
The song broke records as soon as it was published, surpassing Doja Cat’s song “Ain’t Sh*t,” which had previously held the mark, with the biggest solo debut of all time on the worldwide and US Spotify, respectively, with 3M and 1.5M streams.
