Nicki Minaj “Pink Friday” Tops The Charts!!!


Nicki Minaj crowns the Billboard 200 albums chart for the first time, as her “Pink Friday” set steps 3-1 in its 11th week on the list (45,000; up 18% per Nielsen SoundScan). “Pink” also pushes past the 1 million total sales mark this week — 1,035,000 total since its Nov. 22, 2010 release.

“Pink Friday” initially debuted at No. 2 and has since spent its entire chart life in the top 10.

Minaj’s patient wait for her turn at No. 1 is a rare sight. For the most part, an album is only No. 1 because it debuted there. It’s unusual for a set to climb to the top. Case in point: in 2010, there were 30 albums that hit No. 1, but just one — Lil Wayne‘s “I Am Not A Human Being” — actually rose to the top. Wayne debuted at No. 2 off of just downloads, then fell to No. 16 the next week, only to reach No. 1 the next once the CD version of the album dropped.

YAYYYY!!! That’s wassup! I’m so proud of her and she is really giving it to the haters! The album is grade A and she’s going to have a great 2011! “Moment4Life” is making big moves at urban radio and the Rihanna assisted “Fly” is poised to widen her sphere of popularity with it’s breathy, poppy but still genuine appeal! We some BARBIES OVER HERE!
