Nicki Minaj’s “Chun-Li” Climbs to Billboard Hot 100 Top 10
Nicki Minaj's "Chun-Li" is swiftly making its way to the top of the charts, and it has just hit the Top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 after its second week. The Queens rap star's latest single previously debuted at No. 92 after its April 12 release date on the musical chart, but has jumped to No. 10 this week.
This marks as the 16th Top 10 record for Minaj's career, extending her accomplishment of having the most Top 10 songs for any female rapper. Missy Elliott comes in second right behind Nicki with nine Top 10 tracks.
"Chun-Li" also made waves after skyrocketing from its entry spot last week at No. 92 all the way to the Top 10 after its second charting week. This makes the song the biggest jump on the Hot 100 placements since Katy Perry's "Roar" record from 2013. "Chun Li" also currently sits at No. 14 on the Streaming Songs chart, and has jumped from No. 16 to No. 4 on Digital Song Sales chart as of this week.
Nicki's other single, "Barbie Tingz," which was released on the same date as "Chun-Li" has also done a major jump on the Hot 100 from No. 83 to No. 25.
The female spitter also released a music video for her "Chun-Li" hit single, which features her taking sexy footage of herself and visuals shot by Alex Loucas. In addition, Nicki has teased the dates of her upcoming North American tour, announcing that she would be hitting the U.S. first and then doing a global run.
Congratulations to Nicki on another major accolade in her career.
