According to Billboard, the two new Songs charted on #83 and #92 (dated on April 21).
The songs enter the Hot 100 after only one day of streaming and sales tracking and four days of radio airplay monitoring.
“Tingz” earned 4.2 million U.S. streams and sold 21,000 downloads in the week ending April 12, following its release that day, according to Nielsen Music. “Chun-Li” logged 3.5 million clicks and sold 20,000 downloads.
Both tracks concurrently debut on the Digital Song Sales chart, at Nos. 13 and 16, respectively.
“Chun-Li” additionally garnered 8.5 million all-format radio audience impressions in the week ending April 15, while “Tingz” drew 7.5 million.
Both tracks are likely to see a sizable gain on next week’s Hot 100 (dated April 28), as that chart will encompass the song’s first full week of tracking. (Streaming and sales run on a Friday through Thursday tracking cycle, while airplay runs Monday through Sunday.)
Minaj has now earned 86 total entries on the Hot 100, dating back to her first, “Knockout,” with Lil Wayne, in 2010. She extends her record for most total Hot 100 appearances among women in the chart’s 59-year history (ahead of Taylor Swift’s 76), and continues to sport the eighth-most entries among all acts.
After days of hints and teases, we can finally reveal the full lineup for the first-ever Billboard Hot 100 Music Festival. The Weeknd, Skrillex, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne are headlining the fest, which will also feature a very special performance by Justin Bieber. The festival hits New York’s Nikon at Jones Beach Theater (and the surrounding beach area) Aug. 22-23.
Kygo, Jason Derulo, American Authors, Betty Who, The Chainsmokers, Fetty Wap, Halsey, Holy Ghost!, Kiesza, Little Mix, Santigold, and ZZ Ward are among the 40-plus artists playing the inaugural Hot 100 Fest. Check out the full lineup below. It’s a killer mix of hot hitmakers, social media influencers, rising stars and festival faves.
“Truffle Butter” is now No. 1 on the chart.
Nicki Minaj becomes the first female artist to chart four songs simultaneously in the top 10 of Billboard’s Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop airplay chart (dated March 28), as “Feeling Myself,” featuring Beyonce, rises 11-10. Two males had previously achieved the record: Lil Wayne (first in 2008) and Drake (2011), each of whom has quadrupled up in the top 10 in multiple weeks.
Minaj scores additional success, as “Truffle Butter” — fittingly featuring fellow record-holders and Young Money/Cash Money/Republic labelmates Drake and Lil Wayne — steps 2-1 to crown the chart. It’s Minaj’s sixth No. 1 on the chart and Drake’s record-extending 21st. Lil Wayne adds his 18th No. 1, second only to Drake’s sum.
Last night at the Billboard Music Awards we saw Nicki Minaj take home 3 of 7 awards she was nominated for, including “Top Rap Artist, Top Rap Album (Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded), & Top Streaming Artist.” It was definitely a good night for Team Minaj, as Nicki was the first artist presented with an award at the show by none other than Country Music Royalty, Shania Twain!
Nicki Minaj and Lil’ Wayne went on to pre-close the show with their steamy performance of their hit single “High School” off Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded The Re-Up, LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Nicki was seen twerking it all over her boss which definitely got a reaction from not only the audience on hand, but all of social media went crazy! From Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, to Vine, everyone was talking about this sexy, and much needed performance.
