Nicki Minaj Shatters Billboard Record

Up and coming female rapper Nicki Minaj continues to break or make obscure Billboard chart records. The 25 year old diva, who is expected to release her first debut album on November 23rd, made history earlier this year when she became the first female rapper to top the rap charts in almost eight years. Granted, that is not exactly an accomplishment. However, Nicki’s latest fete cannot be dismissed so easily.

According to Billboard Magazine, Minaj has become the first artist in history to have seven singles on the Hot 100 chart at once. All of the entries are cameos except for the rapper’s own “Your Love.” Combined Nicki’s singles, which include Ludacris’ “My Chick Bad”, Lil Wayne’s “Knockout”, Trey Songz’ “Bottoms Up”, Usher’s “Lil Freak”, Sean Kingston’s “Letting Go (Dutty Love)”, and Jay Sean’s “2012 (It Ain’t The End)” have accumulated almost 4.3 million in sales. This includes “Your Love” which accounts for nearly $775,000 in sales.

Chances are Nicki may someday break her own record as she is scheduled to be heard on upcoming songs from Rihanna, Busta Rhymes and Bruno Mars.

  1. why do they count if they’re only spots on other ppl’s songs?

  2. I agree, but we shall see when her album drops. Her latest release ‘Right Through Me’ which is somewhat catchy and ‘Your Love’ are completely different than the Nicki we are use to. She doesn’t seem so sexual so I’m looking forward to it. =)

  3. Well In kanye west song “MONSTER” she said “50k for a verse NO ALBUM OUT” key word “we shall see” her album Is the most anticipated right now…being though she Is the only female rapper “IT” girl.. and she Is just even more anticipated for her features with other artist’s out there… me personally I wouldn’t consider her to be too explicit or over provocative like the other female rap artists, her style and her lyrics are more childish and animated than anything …she is more versatile to not just 1 genre of music… mind you her fans are geared to more of a younger audience *
    Team Barbies* as they call themselves
