The Trinidadian-born, renowned rapper took the good news in her social media post to celebrate his greatest milestone in the music industry.

Although more than 1,000 songs have reached the coveted No. 1 spot, it’s far more difficult for a song to debut in the top position. 

Flash Sales

It typically means a much-promoted single has met high expectations, or at least that an artist is supported and beloved by a legion of fans.

This comes a few weeks after the songstress became the first woman rapper to hit 200 million viewers on Instagram.

The milestone of the 39-year-old songstress who started off her rap career at an early age in her native New York is associated with her being very active on social media and continuous direct interactions with her fans.
