Rapper Nicki Minaj new single ‘Super Freaky Girl’ has debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.  It’s the first solo female rap track to debut atop the chart in almost a quarter of a century.

The last time it happened was in 1998, when Laruyn Hill’s Doo Wop (That Thing) entered the chart at number one.

According to Billboard, Super Freaky Girl was streamed 21m times last week.

“Super Freaky Girl,” was released on August 12 under Young Money/Cash Money/Republic Records. It samples Rick James’ 1981 classic “Super Freak”, which only peaked at number 16 on the charts that year.

“Super Freaky Girl” is slated to be on Nicki’s fifth full-length album, which is “coming soon,” according to a release.
