When the April 27 – May 3 tracking week came to a close, David Guetta’s “Hey Mama (featuring Nicki Minaj and Afrojack)” was knocking on the door of the 500,000 US sales club.

When the May 4-10 tracking week ended, it had entered that group.

According to Nielsen Music, “Hey Mama” moved approximately 90,000 paid downloads during the most recently concluded tracking week. That brings the song’s cumulative US sales total to 571,000.

“Hey Mama,” which sits at a new peak of #13 on the overall Billboard Hot 100, was the week’s ninth-strongest seller.
