The song bows following the arrival of its remix featuring Nicki Minaj, powered by a 238% surge to 14.7 million U.S. streams in the tracking week. The song marks the first top 40 Hot 100 hit for BIA (aka Medford, Mass.-born Bianca Landrau), who previously hit the chart with the No. 46-peaking “Best on Earth,” with Russ, in 2019-20. “Money” also opens at No. 9 on Streaming Songs, giving BIA her first top 10 in her first appearance on the survey.

“Four songs debuted in the Top Ten on the latest RS 100, with Bia’s “Whole Lotta Money” landing at Number Nine. The track originally appeared on the For Certain album in December before Nicki Minaj jumped on the remix.” – ROLLING STONE
“On the remix, BIA and Minaj ride the bass-heavy beat with ease and naturally play off each other’s braggadocious energy to create a uniquely “BarBIA” experience.” – FORBES

Platinum recording artist BIA has gradually been traveling along her own lane within music, a lane that only she can occupy. Raised in Boston, the rap femme fatale is known for music that possesses both biting wit and a boldly authentic swag. It comes, undoubtedly, from BIA’s years traveling through the Boston rap scene, later moving over to Miami, Los Angeles, and then taking over the world. With every mixtape, collaboration, and guest appearance, BIA has only amplified her reach. So much so, that she made the most in a pandemic, dominating 2020 with a fresh new perspective. She inked a deal with Epic Records, dropped the hard-hitting “Free BIA (1st Day Out)” and the intoxicating “COVERGIRL”, as well as dove further into the fashion world with a feature in Good American’s Spring 2020 campaign and Missguided x Sean John Fall 2020 capsule collection.
By the close of 2020, she dropped her For Certain EP, armed with the hit single “Whole Lotta Money”—a song with a central message that unlimited currency can be both mental and physical. The EP reached the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers Album Charts, with the aforementioned single become a sleeper hit that would bring her uncharted.
