“Worship the Queen and you might could pass“.
What was that? Oh yes- that was the sound of Nicki Minaj making life a little more harder for her naysayers.
Not sure what we mean?
Find out how the Rapper’s fan base ‘The Barbz‘ has given her cause to celebrate today, below…
With sales of her Rap EP ‘The Re-Up’ counting toward sales of April 2012 LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’, today saw the project chart at #28 on the Billboard 200, one week after ‘Re-Up’s release and 8 months after ‘Reloaded’s explosive debut.
Forcing the project an impressive 79 chart spots from its #107 position last week, Minaj’s current Top 30 position may come as a surprise to many Pop spectators who’d expected her to fare miserably this week, considering the EP’s absence from many a major retailer.
As of right now, the cut holds 8 Top 40 positions on the UK’s Urban Chart tally and US Top 40 single with ‘Va Va Voom‘, currently perched at #26.
This April, upon the release of ‘Reloaded‘, Minaj became the 7th Black female artist in chart history to score 2 or more US #1 albums- joining a list made up of Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige and ‘American Idol’ co star Mariah Carey.
A list, which sees her stand as the first and only Female Rapper to land such a feat.
