The song marks the first Hot 100 leader for 6ix9ine and the second for Minaj, who notches her first in a lead role.
Plus, Lil Baby’s “The Bigger Picture” bows at No. 3 on the Hot 100, a new career-rest rank.
Let’s run down the top 10 of the newest Hot 100, which blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data. All charts (dated June 27) will update on Billboard.com tomorrow (June 23).
“Trollz,” released June 12 on Create Music Group, arrives as the 1,105th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s nearly 62-year history. It’s the 40th No. 1 in debut ever, and the fifth this year, marking a new single-year high.
The track launches at No. 1 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 116,000 sold in the week ending June 18, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, and No. 3 on Streaming Songs, with 36 million U.S. streams in the same span. It drew 1.2 million radio airplay audience impressions in the week ending June 21.
6ix9ine’s first Hot 100 No. 1, Minaj’s second: 6ix9ine scores his first Hot 100 No. 1. He tallied two prior top 10s, each of which reached No. 3: “FEFE,” featuring Minaj and Murda Beatz, in August 2018, and “Gooba,” which debuted at No. 3 on the May 23-dated chart, five weeks ago.
Minaj earns her second Hot 100 No. 1 (and 19th top 10) and first topper in a lead role. She previously ruled as featured on Doja Cat’s “Say So,” which led the May 16 chart, following the arrival of its Minaj remix. With “Say So,” Minaj set the record for the most Hot 100 appearances (109) needed for a first No. 1.
Biggest sales week in over a year: Starting with 116,000 sold, “Trollz” boasts the highest weekly sales sum since Taylor Swift’s “Me!,” featuring Brendon Urie, soared in with 193,000 (May 11, 2019).
“Trollz” was on sale in 6ix9ine and Minaj’s webstores via over a dozen physical/digital combination offerings (priced from 69 cents to $10) during the tracking week, including an alternate version released June 16. Consumers could purchase cassette, CD and vinyl singles (including an autographed CD copy), each with a digital download; the download would be sent to consumers upon purchase, with physical versions due to arrive at a later date.
6ix9ine posts his first Digital Song Sales No. 1 and Minaj collects her sixth.
