Cardi B Blocks Nicki Minaj From A No. 1 Hit For The Second Time In A Month

Cardi B debuts her new single “Enough (Miami)” at No. 1 on a variety of Billboard charts this week. The song was a quick sales smash, and it’s brought her back to the summit on a handful of rankings she’s topped multiple times before. In an odd coincidence–or perhaps it’s not a coincidence at all–Cardi blocks another superstar rapper from reaching the top spot on one list for the second time in less than a month with a brand new cut.

“Enough (Miami)” starts its time on the Rap Digital Song Sales chart at No. 1 this week. In doing so, it keeps Nicki Minaj’s “Big Difference” at bay. That tune returns to the ranking of the bestselling tracks in America classified as rap in the runner-up rung, held back from ruling only by Cardi’s latest.

These rappers must be feeling déjà vu, as this same setup took place just two weeks ago. On the chart dated March 16, Cardi launched her single “Like What (Freestyle)” at No. 1 on the Rap Digital Song Sales list. Right behind her was Minaj, only with a different tune.

Minaj’s song “Pink Friday Girls” rose to a new high of No. 2 on the Rap Digital Song Sales chart during the week dated March 16. The rapper actually claimed a pair of smashes that frame, as her track “Let Me Calm Down” also reappeared, landing at No. 4.

Over on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart, the order doesn’t look any different. “Enough (Miami)” is new at No. 1, while “Big Difference” surges to No. 2, a new best showing for the release. Two weeks prior, Cardi also won with “Like What (Freestyle),” though Minaj’s “Let Me Calm Down,” a collaboration with J. Cole, was in third place. Jack Harlow’s “Lovin on Me” separated the two–and it also spent the chart week dated March 23 at No. 1 on both of the aforementioned tallies.

“Enough (Miami)” sold well enough in its first tracking frame to debut at No. 1 on not just the purchase-only lists focused on rap and hip-hop, but all styles of music. The tune is new in first place on the Digital Song Sales chart, giving Cardi her seventh champion. According to Luminate, the single opens with just over 37,000 copies sold.
