This time around, she has teamed up with BIA for a remix to BIA’s song ‘Whole Lotta Money.’
The original incarnation of the track appeared on BIA’s 2020 EP ‘For Certain,’ which dropped in December. However, in April of 2021 she dropped the music video for the track and has now linked with Minaj to propel the song to even greater heights.
As for Minaj, she is busy working on her fifth studio album and recently shared her track ‘Big Barbie’ on Instagram Live.
Nicki Minaj is already cashing in on the success of ‘Whole Lotta Money (Remix)’ – the latest single from rising rapstress BIA.
Its original incarnation found aboard the latter’s 2020-released ‘For Certain’ EP, the track had already been collecting buzz on its own before the Rap Queen gave it her royal blessing via a revamp.
In the week that followed the remix’s July 9 release, ‘Whole Lotta Money’ racked up a whole lotta streams and digital downloads – enough to land it in the top 20 of the refreshed Hot 100. This may come as a first for BIA, but it’s a historic measure for Nicki.
See why inside:
Premiering at #16 on this week’s Hot 100, ‘Whole’ comes as Minaj’s record-extending 119th Hot 100 hit – the second most among women (only Taylor Swift has more with 137).
Here are the numbers that powered the bop to its impressive debut.
Digital Downloads ≈12,000 sold
Streaming ≈14.6 million U.S. streams
Radio Airplay ≈ 8.4 million audience impressions
More notably, ‘Whole’ is Nicki’s 40th top 20 hit. Advancing her to #7 on the all-time list of ‘most top 20 hits’ among all artists, only Drake (69), Lil Wayne (51), Taylor Swift (51), Elvis Presley (48), Madonna (44), The Beatles (42), and Rihanna (42) have more. With 40 top 20 hits each, Nicki is tied in 7th place with legendary singer-songwriter Elton John.

The move is an interesting one for several reasons. Full Stop handles a wide range of artists including Travis Scott and Gwen Stefani, and it could be argued that Minaj, who is 36 and has been a widely recognized recording artist and celebrity for more than a decade, could reap the benefits of Scott’s mainstream hip-hop following, as well as the later-in-career moves that the management team has brought to Stefani, such as a Las Vegas residency and television appearances — although Minaj did serve a controversial stint on “American Idol” in 2013, where she feuded with fellow judge and diva Mariah Carey.
