Cardi B and Nicki Minaj’s ongoing feud continues to make waves in the music industry, with Cardi’s latest single, “Like What (Freestyle),” making a significant impact on the charts. The two rappers, known for their intense rivalry, have often found themselves competing for the top spot on Billboard charts, and this week is no exception.

The tension between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj has been simmering for years, with both artists trading barbs and occasionally reigniting their feud through their music and social media platforms. Their rivalry has become one of the most closely-watched in hip-hop, and each new release from either artist is met with anticipation and speculation from fans and critics alike.

“Like What (Freestyle)” marks another triumph for Cardi B, who has established herself as one of the leading voices in rap music today. The single’s debut at No. 1 on the Rap Digital Song Sales chart is a testament to her continued dominance in the genre and her ability to connect with audiences through her music. With 11,535 copies sold in its first week, “Like What (Freestyle)” not only tops the rap charts but also makes a strong showing on the overall Digital Song Sales ranking, entering at No. 3.

While Cardi B celebrates her latest chart-topping success, Nicki Minaj finds herself narrowly missing out on claiming the No. 1 spot with her recent release, “Pink Friday Girls.” Despite a dedicated fan base and the success of her Pink Friday 2 World Tour, “Pink Friday Girls” reappears on the Rap Digital Song Sales chart at No. 2, selling 8,789 copies in the past tracking period. However, Minaj’s impact on the charts is undeniable, with three tracks, including “Let Me Calm Down” and “FTCU,” landing in the top 10.

As Cardi B continues to bask in the success of “Like What (Freestyle),” all eyes are on Nicki Minaj as she prepares to make her next move in the ongoing battle for rap supremacy. Whether it’s through new music, collaborations, or social media antics, one thing is for sure: the feud between Cardi B and Nicki Minaj shows no signs of slowing down, and fans can’t wait to see what happens next.
