Nicki Minaj Scores First No. 1 Hit with "Say So (Remix)"

With over 100 entries on the Hot 100, Minaj's remix of the Doja Cat tune becomes both artists' first time topping the chart.

Doja Cat - Say So ft. Nicki Minaj (Dance Visual)

Though Nicki Minaj has made over 100 appearances on the Billboard Hot 100, the rapper has just now scored her very first No. 1 single.

Since 2010, Minaj has steadily been cranking out hits, both in solo endeavors and guest verses on countless peers' songs. She is easily one of the most beloved—and wealthiest—female rappers of all time. But, it wasn't until Minaj's new remix of Doja Cat's viral "Say So" that she finally topped the charts, marking a victory for both the rising star and the longtime torchbearer.

BTS Releases Gorgeous New Album "MAP OF THE SOUL: 7"

After dominating the Grammys earlier this month, BTS returns with a brand new body of work

BTS (방탄소년단) 'ON' Kinetic Manifesto Film : Come Prima

After conquering the Grammy stage to perform "Old Town Road" with Lil Nas X earlier this month, BTS has finally released their highly anticipated new album, MAP OF THE SOUL: 7.

The 20-track behemoth features a slew of their best songs from 2019's MAP OF THE SOUL: PERSONA, along with a fantastic new rendition of "ON," this time featuring Sia. The track's MV, which is as gorgeous as the song itself, was released today, as well. Other tracks include their stunning single "Black Swan," which Popdust's own Dan K called a "genuine of those rare songs that seems to exist on an almost entirely emotional level. From the somber opening string notes to the vocal performances tinged with melancholy, and the distant, layered sound design, 'Black Swan' hits you straight in the soul."

The group recently returned from a well deserved hiatus and are set to embark on a world tour this April, with their first few performances being at none other than the Seoul Olympic Stadium.

Check out the album and music video below.

Tory Lanez - K LO K (Feat. Fivio Foreign) *Directed & Edited by Tory Lanez*

While Chixtape 5 is still fresh on the charts, Tory Lanez returns with a new single "Broke In a Minute."

The track, seemingly off the recently confirmed New Toronto 3, finds Tory in a similarly ignorant mindset, as displayed on last week's Brooklyn Drill inspired "K LO K." Gone is the R&B crooning of Chixtape, in its stead is a Lanez settling into his new found fame. After two massive joint tour's with Chris Brown and Drake over the summer, and a powerful response to Chixtape 5 Chixtape 5, Tory seems to be merely flexing on us. "Bands in my hand look pretty, hit another band on the Gram, I'm litty," He raps on "Broke In a Minute."

As Lanez gears up for his next chapter, it's clear he's back on his bullsh*t, but his habit of mimicry is starting to grow old, and while his interpretation of Brooklyn Drill is more or less convincing, it still feels rather vanilla when compared to the prowess of Pop Smoke or Fivio Foreign, the latter of which is featured on "K LO K" and overshadows the "Beauty and The Benz" polymath almost immediately. The question of Tory's artistic identity is growing farther out of reach; but simultaneously, his iconic success has been a long time coming, and that deserves celebration.
