Nicki Minaj Thanks Fans for Securing First Hot 100 No. 1 With 'Say So': 'I Love You So Much'

On the heels of earning her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 with Doja Cat's "Say So," a joyous Nicki Minaj expressed her excitement Tuesday afternoon (May 11) on Instagram.

"Can't thank you guys enough for going so hard this past week to help us make history," she captioned her post of a pseudo Billboard cover featuring her and Doja. "I saw it all. You'll never understand how much you uplift me with the overwhelming love & support you continue to show. I love you so much. Like so much. So much. Dear @dojacat, thanks for trusting me with your baby. Hope I lived up to your expectations. You're so extremely talented & so deserving of this moment. what time r u showing ur boobs? Love, Nic."

The latest feat achieved by the hip-hop twosome makes Doja and Minaj the first two female rappers to hoist a No. 1 song together on the Hot 100. "Say So" serves as Minaj's 109th Hot 100 entry, making that the longest run for an artist seeing their first chart-topping record. Minaj's first crack at the Hot 100 came in 2010 when she featured on Lil Wayne's "Knockout." "Say So" is also Minaj's 18th top 10 on the Hot 100.
