Throw your hands high in the sky, Barbz, because Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Starships’ has set a new record on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The dance-pop song has spent its first 21 weeks in the Billboard Top 10 after it debuted at No. 9 on the chart on March 3.

Peter Rosenberg’s favorite song has been bouncing back and forth between No. 10 and its No. 5 peak during the tune’s run on the chart. Along with this chart achievement, ‘Starships’ has also skyrocketed at No. 2 on Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart and No. 3 on Pop Songs tally.

Overall, ‘Starship’ has reached 1.3 billion cumulative audience impressions, according to Nielsen BDS and has pushed 3.2 million downloads, according to Nielsen SoundScan. So, it’s safe to say that ‘Starships’ was a global hit for the Young Money princess in spite of the criticisms that the song wasn’t real hip-hop.

Minaj went on Twitter to thank her Barbz for making ‘Starships’ fly high on the charts. She tweeted:

Congratulations Nicki Minaj!
