Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘HISS’ Sparks Instagram Frenzy as Nicki Minaj Loses 175,000 Followers Amid Feud
In the dynamic realm of hip-hop, feuds and rivalries have long been the fuel that ignites conversations and controversies. The recent showdown between Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj is no exception. This feud has taken a surprising twist, with Instagram follower counts becoming the latest battleground for these two rap juggernauts.
Megan Thee Stallion unleashed her latest single, ‘Hiss,’ on January 26th, and it’s sent shockwaves through the industry. What’s particularly intriguing is that ‘Hiss’ seems to include a direct jab at Nicki Minaj, and this has resulted in a substantial surge in Megan’s Instagram followers. She’s gained over 228,000 new followers in the wake of this release. Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj has seen a significant drop in her follower count, losing more than 175,000 fans in response to ‘Hiss.’
The feud took an escalated turn when fans caught on to a specific line in Megan’s track, “These hes don’t be mad at Megan, these hes mad at Megan’s Law.” This line appears to be a clear reference to Nicki Minaj, whose husband, Kenneth Petty, faced legal issues regarding his registration as a sex offender in California in 2022. The lyrical jab quickly reverberated across social media platforms.
Shortly after ‘Hiss’ hit the airwaves, Nicki Minaj previewed the track on her Instagram Live. During the broadcast, she threw her own shade, referring to Megan as “big foot,” saying “the b*tch fell off,” and humorously adding, “I said get up on your good foot.” Fans speculated that these remarks were connected to Megan’s unfortunate shooting incident in 2020 when rapper Tory Lanez shot her in the foot. Nicki also shared posts portraying Megan as a manipulative liar and even released a freestyle track titled ‘Big Foot.’
As the feud continues to unfold, one unmistakable victor has emerged in the streaming arena. Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘Hiss’ has notched an impressive 8,652,289 Spotify streams in just five days, eclipsing Nicki Minaj’s ‘Big Foot’ with 1,999,668 streams. Nicki, on her part, has been actively engaging her fanbase, known as the Barbz, by sharing posts that take direct aim at Megan.
In a recent report by Journo Research, it becomes evident that the reactions on social media have been nothing short of intense. The two artists were once considered amicable back in 2019, following their collaboration on ‘Hot Girl Summer.’ However, fans began to suspect a falling-out when Megan teamed up with Cardi B, Nicki’s rival, to produce ‘WAP’ in 2020. Consequently, a feud of this magnitude could have been brewing for quite some time.
The ongoing feud between Megan Thee Stallion and Nicki Minaj is currently taking center stage. Megan’s ‘Hiss’ not only sends a message to her rival but also significantly bolsters her Instagram following. As the social media showdown rages on, it’s abundantly clear that public sentiment is playing a pivotal role in this captivating feud.
