I’m sure we’ve been expecting this for quite some times. For weeks Nicki Minaj teased fans with snippets and previews of her latest single, “Anaconda.” The YMCMB rapper finally released the song only to than begin teasing fans, once again with images and shots from the video. Like a virus, the visual for “Anaconda” spread and quite quickly. The video surpassed well over a million views on VEVO on the first day and continues to climb with a view of 236 million views today.
“Anaconda” follows Pharrell’s “Happy” and Iggy Azalea & Charli XCX’s “Fancy” into the platinum-selling singles arena. Nicki took to instagram to share the news and wrote:
“Just released on UK iTunes and is now certified #Platinum in America #Anaconda #PolowDaDon #DaInternz@bigjuice205 on the boards baby!!!!!! #ThePinkPrint 11.24.14″
Congrats Nicki…we’ll be patiently waiting on The Pink Print.
Deniqua tries really hard not to dance when Anaconda comes on but it almost never works. She’s on Twitter @__hennystraight being distracted by everything.
