Nicki Minaj is opening this week’s Billboard Hot 100 at No. 1 with “Super Freaky Girl.”

The artist’s latest single earned a total of 21.1 million streams, 4.6 million radio airplay audience impressions and 89,000 downloads sold in its first week. This marks her first ever solo No. 1 hit and her third overall, following 2020’s “Trollz” with 6ix9ine and Doja Cat’s “Say So.” The track is also the first time in since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998 that a hip-hop song by a solo female artist debuted at No. 1.

In addition, “Super Freaky Girl” sits at No. 1 on both the Streaming Songs, Digital Song Sales, Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.

Minaj recently enlisted her alter ego Roman for a remix of the Rick James-sampled cut, which is a minute longer than the original and features an additional verse.

In other chart news, Rod Wave’s Beautiful Mind debuted at No. 1 on this week’s Billboard 200.
