Nicki Minaj Hits No. 1 On Billboard Gospel Songs Chart
Nicki Minaj has hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Gospel Songs chart!
The rap star is featured on GRAMMY-winning gospel singer Tasha Cobbs Leonard’s new single "I'm Getting Ready," the first off of Cobb Leonard’s latest album Heart. Passion. Pursuit.
Minaj raps: "Beach house vibes maneuver the jet ski/ Because I serve a God that parted the Red Sea/ Multi-million dollar commercials for Pepsi/ From food stamps to more ice than Gretzky."
The track arrived at No. 1 on the Gospel Digital Song Sales chart with 5,000 downloads sold during the week ending Aug. 31, according to Nielsen Music, and has garnered over 842,000 in on-demand audio streams.
While many have criticized Minaj’s inclusion on the song, Cobbs Leonard’s label Motown Gospel says that "…Ready" will be promoted to gospel radio, with Minaj's vocals intact.
