Kathmandu- Her most recent hit, “Super Freaky Girl,” premiered as the Billboard Hot 100’s number one song, according to Billboard. In 1998, Lauryn Hill of The Fugees launched “Doo Wop (That Thing),” the last time a female rap artist did so without an opening act.

This is not Minaj’s third song to enter at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart. She previously entered the top two on the first singles from two different artists. The first one was when 6ix9ine first got out of prison and dropped “Trollz” in 2020. Later that year, she repeated the action when she made an appearance on Doja Cat’s “Say So.”
