This past weekend, Ice Spice's producer, RiotUSA, was accused of paying fans to listen to their "Princess Diana (Remix)" with Nicki Minaj. The highly anticipated track dropped earlier this month, and while it garnered plenty of attention on its own accord, social media users shared screenshots of the music maker offering them money in exchange for streams. Regardless of the validity of those claims, the numbers are certainly speaking for themselves on the latest Billboard Hot 100 chart. SZA's "Kill Bill" from last year's SOS album is still holding onto the top spot, and titles from Morgan Wallen and Miley Cyrus follow.
Coming in fourth place are two of our favourite rap divas, marking Spice's biggest charting song as a lead artist so far in her short career. As XXL notes, she and PinkPantheress also made it into the top 10 earlier this year with their "Boy's a liar Pt.2" collaborative effort. On today's (April 25) update, it remains in the same position (having previously peaked at No. 3 thanks to growing popularity on TikTok), coming after The Weeknd and Ariana Grande's "Die For You (Remix)" and Drake's latest official release, "Search & Rescue."

On Monday (April 24), the "Bikini Bottom" hitmaker reflected on her latest W with a tweet. "So proud of 'Princess Diana' with Nicki, like my dream collab really came true. I can die happy now." The mother of one also gave a shoutout to Spice on social media, writing, "Y'ALL!!!!! Two songs in the TOP 10 is crazy!!!!! Congratulations!!! Princesssssss @icespicee_ #PrincessDiana #HeavyOnIt." Minaj also told the Barbz to "stay tuned," and sent out plenty of love to her undeniably loyal fan base. "[Thanks] queen 🥰💕💕💕 We eatin' good [tonight]!"
After dropping the first "Princess Diana (Remix)" on April 14, the duo returned four days later with six different versions of the catchy track for your listening pleasure. Among them were the "extendo clip," sped up, slowed down, and instrumentals, as well as the 23-year-old's original solo cut.
