Remember that pic Nicki Minaj shared when she teased fans with the release of new music? Well, apparently, it sparked a new Crocs craze.

In case you missed it, Nicki shared a cryptic post one week ago, letting fans know she's got new music on the way. In the post, the rapper is wearing nothing but jewellery and embellished pink Crocs and using two heart-shaped pillows to cover herself. 

According to Billboard, after spotting Nicki's footwear, fans rushed out to get themselves a pair too.

Referencing online store The Sole Supplier, the publication wrote that there was a 4 900% spike in the sale of pink Crocs. The craze also reportedly resulted in The Sole Supplier's site crashing.

Now in case you were wondering if Nicki Minaj had any idea what impact her choice in footwear would have, the star says she had no clue.

When one fan on Twitter asked: "Did you expect Crocs sales to soar after posting your picture?" the rapper replied: "Absolutely TF NOT. LOL."
