ENSPIRE Contributor: Claya Davis
Released today, Nicki Minaj’s new pop track, ‘Super Freaky Girl,’ is climbing the charts, already occupying the #1 spot on iTunes’ ‘Top Downloads‘ list and the All-Genre US Sales Charts.
‘Super Freaky Girl’ is also becoming a fast TikTok sensation. The song features a sampled section of ‘Super Freak,’ Rick James’ 1981 hit, and has quickly attracted the platform’s attention, thanks to a creative TikTok dance challenge created by @lorddroman.
‘Super Freaky Girl’ is the rapper’s first musical release since her March hit, ‘We Go Up,’ featuring Fivio Foreign. Her other 2022 releases include ‘Blick Blick’ with Coi Leray, ‘Bussin,’ and ‘Do We Have a Problem,’ both with Lil Baby.
The fast success of Minaj’s latest track represents the first in an exciting series of events for the singer. Later this month, on August 28, she will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vangaurd Award at MTV’s 2022 Video Music Awards, becoming only the fourth rapper to do so and joining the likes of LL Cool J (1997), Kanye West (2015), and Missy Elliot (2019). She is also expected to deliver a live performance for the first time since 2018 at the event.
