Chun-Li” is a song by Trinidadian-American rapper Nicki Minaj from her fourth studio album, Queen (2018). It was released as the lead single of the album on April 12, 2018, by Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records. It was written and produced by Minaj and Jeremy Reid. Commercially, the song peaked at number 10 on the US Billboard Hot 100, reached the top 20 in Canada, and the top 30 in France and the United Kingdom. It won the award for Best Hip-Hop Video at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.

In March 2017, Minaj released a three-single pack that included “Changed It” with Lil Wayne, “No Frauds” with Drake and Wayne, and “Regret in Your Tears“. She then did a number of collaborations with other artists throughout 2017, before starting a social media hiatus on December 31. On April 10, 2018, Nicki Minaj announced on Instagram that she will be releasing two new songs: “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” on April 12, and also posted cover artworks of the respective singles. “Chun-Li“, which takes its name from the Street Fighter character of the same name, was released alongside the buzz single “Barbie Tingz” as a part of Minaj’s upcoming fourth studio album Queen (2018) and made available for streaming and digital download on April 12 by Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records. The release of songs landed on the 10th anniversary of Minaj’s second mixtape, Sucka Free (2008). On May 30, Minaj posted a video showing the making of the song, in preview of her upcoming documentary titled The Making of Queen (2018).

Chun-Li” was produced by Atlanta-native producer J. Reid for Chevi Muzic, alongside Minaj who was credited as a coproducer. According to him, Minaj wanted to deliver the type of “boom-bap” flavored beats that are reminiscent of New York City hip hop. The song is sonically built on slapping, percussion and sparse soundbeads. Minaj linked with Reid in late December 2017, and later explained to him what kind of beat she wanted for the song: She proceeded to rap it and give him the vibe. He made about 13 different beats, and Minaj picked out one. The song was done in early April 2018, including writing, production, mixing and mastering.

Lyrically, Minaj “rails” (criticises) online detractors in the track. “They need rappers like me! So they can get on their fucking keyboards and make me the bad guy, Chun-Li,” she declares in the second interlude.

A vertical music video for the song was released on April 13, 2018, via Minaj’s YouTube channel. It is a video montage of videos filmed by Minaj while holding her phone vertically. In the visual, Minaj recites the lyrics of the song while posing on a couch, but relinquishes control of her phone for a couple of runway-like shots.

On April 27, Minaj released a teaser to promote the official music video. However, she confirmed on her Instagram that the teaser was not related in any way to the music video and is rather a video of her and Aliya Janell, the choreographer of the official video, doing a freestyle dance to the song.

The full accompanying video of the song was released on May 4, with the subtitle 春麗. It was directed by Steven Klein through Good Company Pictures. It features Asian futuristic/superhero-inspired outfits. Its music video won the Best Hip-Hop Video at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, and was nominated for Best Hip-Hop at the MTV Europe Music Awards. It has over 148 million views on YouTube.

Chun-Li” debuted at number 92 on the US Billboard Hot 100 after a day of tracking, with 20,000 downloads sold and 3.5 million streams, and four days of radio airplay. It ascended to number 10 the following week, selling 38,000 copies and earning 22.1 million streams. The song became Minaj’s sixth top 10 entry as a lead artist–and her first solo single to enter that region since “Anaconda” in 2014–and 16th overall, extending her record for most top 10 singles among female rappers. “Chun-Li” also logged the greatest jump on the Hot 100, 82 positions, since Katy Perry’s “Roar” (2013) jumped 83 spots following a full tracking week. It fell 38 positions to number 48 in its third week. On its fifth week, the song re-entered the top 20 of the chart jumping to number 19. It was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on July 30, 2018 for 1 million equivalent units moved.

Outside the United States, “Chun-Li” reached the top 20 in Canada, the top 30 in France and the United Kingdom.

Some Quotable Lyrics

Ayo, look like I’m goin’ for a swim
Dunk on ’em, now I’m swingin’ off the rim
Bitch ain’t comin’ off the bench
While I’m comin’ off the court fully drenched
Here, get some haterade, get ya thirst quenched
Styled on ’em in this Burberry trench
These birds copy every word, every inch
But gang gang got the hammer and the wrench (brrr)
I pull up in that quarter milli off the lot
Oh, now she tryna be friends like I forgot
Show off my diamonds like I’m signed by the Roc (by the rock)
Ain’t pushin’ out his babies ’til he buy the rock

Ayo, I been on, bitch, you been corn
Bentley tints on, Fendi prints on
I mean I been Storm, X-Men been formed
He keep on dialin’ Nicki like the Prince song
I-I-I been on, bitch, you been corn
Bentley tints on, Fendi prints on
Ayo, I been north, Lara been Croft
Plates say Chun-Li, drop the Benz off

Oh, I get it, huh, they paintin’ me out to be the bad guy
Well it’s the last time you gonna see a bad guy do the rap game like me

I went and copped the chopsticks, put it in my bun just to pop shit
I’m always in the top shit, box seats, bitch, fuck the gossip
How many of them coulda did it with finesse?
Now everybody like, “She really is the best”
You play checkers, couldn’t beat me playin’ chess
Now I’m about to turn around and beat my chest
Bitch, it’s King Kong, yes, it’s King Kong
Bitch, it’s King Kong, this is King Kong
Chinese ink on, Siamese links on
Call me 2 Chainz, name go ding dong
Bitch, it’s King Kong, yes, I’m King Kong
This is King Kong? Yes, Miss King Kong
In my kingdom with my Timbs on
How many championships? What? Six rings on

They need rappers like me!
They need rappers like me!
So they can get on their fucking keyboards!
And make me the bad guy, Chun-Li
