Nicki Minaj's single Super Bass is an official hit, everybody!
It's been rising on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, weeks after its initial release, and has become the highest-charting Hot 100 rap hit by a solo female since Missy Elliott's Work It, which reached Number 2 in 2002.
It's also only one of eight rap singles by a solo female to reach the top 10 in the chart's 53-year history.
Cash Money co-founder Ronald "Slim" Williams isn't surprise. He says:
"Nicki isn't like any other female rapper. We knew she had the goods when Lil Wayne signed her. She's not a female rapper — she's a pop star who happens to rap."
We've ALWAYS known she's got the goods. We ain't surprised ONE BIT.
