Nicki Minaj’s ‘LLC’ Hits No. 1 After Fan Campaign
Written by on May 7, 2021
Nicki Minaj may not have released any music this year, but that hasn’t stopped her from earning a No. 1 single.
On Friday, the rap queen’s song “LLC” off her 2018 album Queen hit No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap chart thanks to Minaj’s loyal Barbz, who organized an “LLC Party” on social media to encourage others to stream and download the song. Their efforts helped make the three-year-old track a trending topic and propel it to the top spot. It is also currently No. 3 on the iTunes overall chart, a testament to the power of the Barbz.
“WE DID THIS OUT LF LOVE AND APPRECIATION FOR REAL TALENT,” wrote one fan.

“LLC” is a fan favorite off Queen. Although it wasn’t an official single, fans hoped to shine a spotlight on the underappreciated track.
Minaj, who has been absent from social media since January, has not acknowledged the feat. It’s been over a year since she released her last solo track, “Yikes.”
Meanwhile, anticipation continues to grow for her fifth studio album and her upcoming docuseries for HBO Max.
