Ice Spice breaks Nicki Minaj’s streaming record with her song, ‘Karma’ ft Taylor Swift

With her collaborative song with Taylor Swift dubbed ‘Karma’, Ice Spice has broken a record previously held by Nicki Minaj, the Queen of Hip Hop.

According to Chart Data, the star-studded remix earned the hot Bronx rapper the biggest streaming debut for a female rapper in global Spotify history.

The song, which was made available on Friday (May 26) as a bonus track on Swift’s brand-new deluxe album Midnights (The Til Dawn Edition), earned 5.036 million plays on the platform on its first day.

This made “Karma” the top new entry and drove it to No. 5 on the global Spotify list. Additionally, it contributed to Ice Spice’s biggest Spotify streaming day of her young career, accounting for nearly half of her 10.5 million listens on May 26.

Prior until now, Nicki Minaj’s chart-topping song “Super Freaky Girl,” which debuted with 3.021 million plays after its release in August 2022, held the record for the largest streaming debut for a female rap song on Spotify, according to ChartData.

Nicki has thus far been one of Ice Spice’s biggest champions, despite the fact that the news of her being overshadowed by the “Munch (Feelin’ U)” singer may fuel the flames of her fiercely competitive character.
