Fans Choose Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Freaky Girl’ as This Week’s Favorite New Music

Published

on

Nicki Minaj‘s latest single, “Super Freaky Girl,” has topped this week’s new music poll.

Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (Aug. 12) on Billboard, choosing the Queen of Rap’s Rick James-sampling track as their favorite new music release of the past week.

“Super Freaky Girl” beat out new music by Megan Thee Stallion (Traumazine), Anitta and Maluma (“El Que Espera”), NIKI (Nicole), Rod Wave (Beautiful Mind), and others.

“Super Freaky Girl” finds Minaj doing what she does best — remixing old hits and reintroducing them to a new generation of fans. Where her 2014 smash “Anaconda” revisited Sir Mix-A-Lot’s “Baby Got Back,” “Freaky Girl” employs James’ 1981 Billboard Hot 100 hit “Super Freak.” She has a gleeful time reanimating the classic track’s salacious funk with sexual innuendo and a flow that knows when to speed up and when to really land a punchline.

“Super Freaky Girl” is Minaj’s first release since “We Go Up” with Fivio Foreign in March. Prior to that, she dropped “Blick Blick” with Coi Leray, “Bussin” with Lil Baby, and “Do We Have A Problem?” with Lil Baby again — all from this year.

Placing second on the past week’s tally with 8% of the vote was Megan Thee Stallion’s sophomore album, Traumazine. The unflinching and revealing new full-length sees the Houston rapper at her most vicious, as heard on fiery tracks “Plan B” and “Ungrateful.” She then mellows into the soul bearing “Anxiety,” creating a multi-faceted body of work.

A stage collapse due to high winds killed one man and injured several others at the Medusa Festival near Valencia, Spain on Saturday.

According to reports by CNN and the Associated Press, the main entrance and the main stage of the festival collapsed at around 4:18 a.m. local time “due to a strong gust of wind.”

At the time of the incident, DJ Miguel Serna was on stage and there were around 50,000 people in attendance. Roughly 40 people had to be taken to the hospital, including three with serious injuries.

“It was a tense few minutes, I’ve never experienced anything like it before,” Serna wrote in an Instagram story on the day of the incident (as reported by Reuters). “The tragedy happened just at the end of my session on the main stage, just below it, which was the most affected (area). It was a few moments of horror, I am still in shock.”

The six-day electronic music festival saw sets from David Guetta, Steve Aoki, Afrojack, Carl Cox and others.

After the incident occurred on Saturday morning, festival organizers shared a statement on Instagram that they had officially canceled the event, stating that the “adverse and unexpected weather conditions that are expected to continue throughout the day oblige us morally and out of responsibility to put an end to our 2022 edition.”

“The Medusa Festival management would like to express our deepest and sincere condolences to the families and friends affected by the fatal consequences last night,” organizers said in a statement posted to Facebook, adding: “Our thoughts are with them at all times.”

Ximo Puig, Valencia’s regional president, also expressed his sadness and offered condolences to the victim’s family and friends in a tweet writing: “A terrible accident that shocks all of us. I want to extend my deepest condolences to the family and friends of the young man who died early this morning at the Medusa Festival in Cullera.”
