"Dip" is a song recorded by American rapper Tyga for his seventh studio album. It was released on September 19, 2018, by Last Kings Records and Empire Distribution. An alternate version of the song featuring American rapper Nicki Minaj was released on October 29, 2018, along with an accompanying music video.[1]

Music video[edit]

An accompanying music video for the remix version of the song was released on Tyga's YouTube and Vevo accounts on October 29, 2018. It was directed by Tyga and Arrad for Riveting Entertainment.[2] The music video takes heavy influence from "Scream" by Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson.[3]

Commercial performance[edit]

"Dip" debuted at number 83 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the 100th entry on the Hot 100 for Nicki Minaj. Minaj also became the fifth act to do so and the first female artist to achieve this feat. It moved 20 spots to number 63 the following week. On January 2, 2019, Dip was certified Gold By RIAA after selling 500,000 units in the United States of America. The certification is Tyga's third after Taste and SWISH before the release of his album in 2019.

Notes

The remix version was originally released as a Tyga song with a Nicki Minaj feature. However, after a few days, it changed to a Collaborative Track, where both artists were considered the main artists. It has since just been Tyga's song featuring Nicki Minaj[17], however it is counted as a Tyga & Nicki Minaj song on the Billboard Hot 100.[18]
