Nicki Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” Has Been Certified Platinum in the United States!

Nicki Minaj’s new single “Super Freaky Girl” has gone platinum in the United States.

The Recording Industry Association of America certified the chart-topping song platinum on Wednesday, just over two months after it was released. Nicki Minaj has not responded to the song’s latest milestone, but on Monday, she celebrated the song’s continued success despite being released in early August.

“10 weeks in the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10.” Debuted at number one and never left. It’s pretty epic. “Thank you,” she tweeted to her followers.

“Super Freaky Girl” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart on August 12, just two days after its release. The song sold over 100,000 copies in a week and is Minaj’s most commercially successful release this year. It is also the only solo song she has released among a slew of collaborations with about a dozen other artists, demonstrating that her dominance is self-sustaining.

The song made history from the moment it was released, as it had the biggest solo debut of all time on global and US Spotify, with 3 million and 1.5 million streams, respectively, displacing Doja Cat’s track “Ain’t Sh*t,” which previously held the record.

“Super Freaky Girl” samples Rick James’ 1981 hit “Super Freak” and contains some of the same raunchy lyrics that Minaj masterfully weaves in her lyrics.

Ahead of its platinum certification, the song reached a new milestone, surpassing 200 million Spotify streams to become the fastest solo female rap song to do so. The song is also the third most popular music download in 2022.

Despite the song’s apparent commercial success, it remains the source of contention between Nicki Minaj and the Grammys, which initially included “Super Freaky Girl” on the list of Best Rap Song nominees. The Grammys later removed the song and relegated it to the pop category, much to the chagrin of Minaj, who believed that if any song should be removed, it should be Latto’s “Big Energy.”

The Grammys had not given a reason for the song’s removal, and Minaj and Latto had a fight over a week ago. The Grammys have not released the final list because voting is still open.
