Nicki Minaj’s “Barbie Tingz,” “Chun-Li” Debut On Billboard Hot 100

Both songs debut despite arriving very late in the week.

Nicki Minaj’s new singles “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” did not debut until late on the final day of the April 6-12 sales and streaming tracking period.

They nonetheless generated enough activity for spots on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Barbie Tingz” takes #83 on this week’s edition of the chart, while “Chun-Li” starts at #92.

The Hot 100 ranks songs from all genres based on activity from sales, streams and radio airplay.

As it arrived late in the tracking period, this week’s chart only accounts for a half-day of sales and streaming and 3.5 days of radio.

Despite that reality, “Barbie Tingz” earned enough sales for #13 on the weekly Digital Song Sales Chart. “Chun-Li” takes #16 on that listing.
