Nicki Minaj's 'Megatron' hits 100M YouTube views but Cardi B fans claim song 'flopped'
This is a new milestone for Nicki Minaj as 'Megatron' is her 55th video to have crossed 100M views on YouTube
Nicki Minaj fans will be pleased to know that her 'Megatron' music video has reached 100M views on YouTube. Minaj released the single along with its accompanying music video in June last year.
'Megatron' is the only solo single released in 2019 from the songstress. The track is considered a buzz single (a promotional song), which also contains a sample 'Heads High' by Mr. Vegas, and is not tethered to any specific album. Before its release, Minaj was on a social media hiatus after the completion of her world tour, 'The Nicki Wrld Tour', in Europe.
According to Pop Crave on Twitter, the new milestone is the Trinidad and Tobago-born rapper's 55th video to achieve this, which extends her record as the female artist with the most videos surpassing the 100M mark on the streaming service platform.
Fans on Twitter were thrilled to hear of the achievement. Several fans called the song a "bop" and "underrated" while many congratulated her. "It's what she deserves," a fan said while others wrote, "As she should queen of rap" and "Queen of rap. Point. Blank. Period". One fan said, "Nicki Icon of rap for a reason." Another shared, "No one is doing it like her."
The news also led to fans of Minaj and Cardi B comparing the two stars. Cardi fans said 'MEGATRON' "flopped". One fan added, "The most iconic free fall in billboard history" while another wrote, "she's over," to which a Minaj fan responded, "She's about to get a #1-2 next week tf ur talking about lol."
Minaj fans were quick to defend their favorite rapper with one saying, "The Cardi stans are trying to drag Nicki for a 'iconic free fall' yet 'Megatron' got more views than 'Press' did (without local hype or massive radio play/promotion) and their fave was still doing festivals while Nicki's did a world tour. We are not the same (sic)." Other comments for Minaj included, "Ended CARDI" and "Y’all jealous she ate your fav up."
Whatever the case may be, fans can support whichever artist they enjoy the most but comparison can distract one from the beauty of the musical art and its creation. On that note, Minaj, congratulations on your 'Megatron' achievement. You can watch the video below.
