Pound The Alarm: Nicki Minaj Edges Closer To UK #1

Published: Sunday 12th Aug 2012 by David

“These old b*tches better change their dentures/When I get in the game they gon’ be playin’ the benches”.

Initially billed as a matter of default, it’s clear Nicki Minaj‘s reign over Female Rap is showing no signs of faltering, held in place by her ever in tune fan base and their support of her material- on and off the charts.

Case in point? The UK chart run of her latest single ‘Pound The Alarm’ which is well on its way to reaching #1 after rising on its Top Ten tally once again.

Chart check below…

After spending last week at #11, the cut rises 3 spots to #8 in its 11th week of release. This, marking the highest spot the song has enjoyed on the tally which saw it rise 118 spots in two weeks back in July.

Extending her lead as the highest charting Female Rapper in British chart history, the cut’s favorable position comes without any physical promotion employed to push it, with the starlet currently on her ‘Pink Friday World Tour’.

A tour, which has rendered it impossible for her to promote ‘Alarm’ herself until she touches down in the country for a three day stint in the next fortnight.

On an album’s front, her sophomore set ‘Pink Friday:Roman Reloaded’ shimmies three spots to #12 nineteen weeks after its launch, while her debut effort ‘Pink Friday’ continues to hold court in the Top 100.

For, despite being released 90 weeks ago, it spends this week #85- making her the only Femcee to enjoy two LPs in the chart where Young Money comrade Drake rose 8 spots to #40 with his latest effort ‘Take Care‘.

Raggedy Anne take note.

        Yes Stupid Ass. I’ll stop laughing when you tell me how much it sold.

      • MinajBoomBOOM August 12, 2012

        600k domestically, 1,000,000 worldwide.

        You were saying?

      • lovelace August 12, 2012

        KingBey what u sayin u lil dirty ass h** ass b**** lookin like Viper wanna be Nic is winnin Sold 350,000 in the first week world wide QueenBey sold 400,000 world wide this aint about album sales Beyonce only got 1 #1 song on that album and it was no 1 in Hip HOP/Rap never even charted on hot 100 boo check ur self

      • Gilberto August 12, 2012

        @lovelace

        Beyoncé isn’t a singer artist like Gimmick Minaj. 4 sold more in US than Gimmick Minaj’s last album in the entire world. I can’t. Beyoncé didn’t score a big hit on the Hot 100 because she didn’t jump on the dance bandwagon like Gimmick. She stayed true to her roots. And the only way of Gimmick get a Top 10 hit on Urban radios is calling some relevant rapppers like Drake and Lil Wayne to jump on her track, because she can’t get a f****** top 10 hit all by herself.

      • Gilberto August 12, 2012

        “Beyoncé isn’t a single artist like Gimmick Minaj…”

        I’M NOT HERE FOR FAGBERTO… BEYONCE’S NOT AS “HERE” AS SHE THINKS, EITHER.. LOL

  2. TheOne August 12, 2012

    Succes doesn’t equate mind-blowing talent. The only time Nicki made me say “wow” was on Monster (thanks to ‘Ye’s beat). She’s nowhere near as great as Lauryn Hill, who can both rap AND sing. Nicki absolutely can’t sing, she rips off Lady Gaga, has horrible taste in clothes and ruined a naturally beautiful body with surgeries. Just as quick as she came upm she’ll go down. I can’t wait to see when she becomes the Lil Kim of the next generation. Oh, and why I can’t stand her is because she tries to whiten her self, and make herself look as caucasian as possible (contacts, light skin, blonde hair?). She is a horrible role model, she is basically saying you can’t be beautiful if you’re black. B****, sit!

    • EJ August 12, 2012

      U a hater b****!

        @Lovelace ” Kim never got 2 pplat albums”? Wow talk about an inaccurate statement. You really need to learn how to research things before you speak because Kim had one double platinum album, 2 platinum albums, and 1 gold album.

      Lil Kim 2nd cd did might well, went platinum in 36 days. Kim got 15 plus years in the game. Nicki got three years, Nicki is more like Coolio, Mc Hammer, & all those rappers who only last one cd.

  7. Full Moon August 12, 2012

      EVERY SINGLE achievement you mentioned can be disproved. You can’t deny that Nicki is slaying but I can deny that Kim was ever a chart topper.

      • edubb August 12, 2012

      • FAF August 12, 2012

        @ MinajBoomBOOM Disprove facts? Tsk Tsk Tsk You Nicki fans sound completely retarded as usual.

  9. mobwife August 12, 2012

    Nicki has been on her World Tour. She should move units. She has had a nice promotional campaign for “ReLoaded”. This sort of progress it to be expected. She is very much loved by the media who showers her with praise.

    • lovelace August 12, 2012

      u kno how it do

  10. edubb August 12, 2012

    I MEAN #34

    I have Only seen Birdman, Beyonce, Lil kim Hop Out that new line of mercedes luxury vans…. Raggedy Anne gets red carpet treatment in HOLLYWOOD ( receives the west hollywood proclamation).

    Raggedy Anne GETS THAT LOOOOONG MONEY (PUBLISHING).

    Rageddy Anne was in a #1 Movie ( where she was Part of the Main plot… Not a 15 minute cameo).

  11. miranda August 12, 2012

    Why is her skin so dark in the first picture?? I guess its editing cuz her skin was NEVER that dark.. lol.

    • Gilberto August 12, 2012

      Because Gimmick started as a hip-hop artist. She was “black” because it was conviniente. But now that she’s appealing white people with her generic dance songs, she has bleached herself.

      • lovelace August 12, 2012

        and what did kim do….. basic troll what she doin in these streets Bleachin that basic ass skin

      • FAILUREReloaded August 12, 2012

      • quetta August 12, 2012

        You really need to calm down with those racist comments. Just because he told the truth doesn’t mean you can go around calling people “crackers” that’s not cute. And I’m pretty sure she cares..that’s why she tries so hard to prove that she’s not pop.

    • Who gives a August 13, 2012

      Who gives a f***. I read that boy’s rant and he sounded bitter and disturbed.

      I predict h’ll be shooting up a place soon.

      I mean it’s peopel I don’t care about and don’t perfer their music but it is never that serious. He’s trying to get attention off of a rant. Seriously. These social media sites got people thinking their opinions really matter that much.

      Yes this is my opinion, and I can care less if you love it or hate it. At least I’m not being a bitter b**** with lose screws who loses sleep over another person’s success. Besides there are way worst things in life than Nicki Minaj.

      • FAF August 13, 2012

        He’s not telling the TRUTH when he’s giving an OPINION on an artist that dont give a F*** about him.. how is that truth?? It’s just a lot of bandwagon haters like (this site) that are mad cuz she getting $$$ if u notice he only goes balls2 the wall when it comes to blk ppl why dont he worrry about taylor swift & white ppl songs/music???

  22. Slayty Perry August 12, 2012

    No one is checking for that flop s*** in America though. I love how her fans claim shes winning. Nicki is no more of a rapper than Ke$ha is. She is a pop b**** and by pop standards, shes a flop. Her album has barely reached 1million world wide and its been out for months with multiple singles and a tour. Team Minaj, accept the fact that your fav is under performing. She has released 5 singles in less than a year(Roman In Moscow, Stupid H**, Starships, Beez In Tha Trap, Pound the Alarm) and her album hasnt cracked 2million yet? Katy released the same amount of singles within 2 years. Her bland and forgettable music has no longevity. PF:RR is the definition of a sophmore slum. I predict her third album wont even reach 700k world wide. This 30 year old hag in her colorful wigs and gimmick personalities is on her way out the door

    • IM August 12, 2012

      go kill your self you salty little b-tch,kim and releasing no music so your thirsty @ss is all salty so you feel the need to take it out on nicki kim dis owns you f-ckers and i don’t blame her if i was her i would have done the same thing to,f-cking space bar worthless b-tches,keep wishing for nickis down fall it,s going to be a long time.

    she look terrrrrble in that pic

  25. iSpeaksTheTruth August 13, 2012

    I really miss the old Nicki. Her mixtapes and the her first Pink Friday album was really good. Here I Am, Save Me, Moment 4 Life, Blazin’, I’m the Best and most of those songs on the album I LOVE SO MUCH FROM HER. She really needs to stick with Hip-Hop and rap real lyrics like how she did in some of those songs…. I Beez In The Trap is a good song and it’s Hip-Hop, but it’s so simple and definitely not her best. All the lyrics on PFRR doesn’t have that same impact as her first album and mixtapes. It’s crazy because you can actually hear how hungry and blessed she was to record her first album. You heard her hunger from her lyrics and the beats. You can really tell that she REALLY took her time to put that whole album together. With this recent album, you can tell she rushed and seem like she didn’t care. The lyrics don’t make sense and the beats are so random. Smh… I really don’t like the Pop music she is doing now and the recent hip-hop songs she recorded. Old Nicki needs to come back, but I don’t know if she ever will. 

    • truth tea August 13, 2012

      i agree. the novelty of the funny voices has worn off and im tired of her basic bars.

As reported here, Nicki Minaj is zooming to her next top 20 hit thanks to the Yo Gotti bop, ‘Rake It Up.’ Already hopping to #22 in just 6 weeks, the song’s promising ascent to the Hot 100’s upper fifth is all the more impressive given the absence of its official music… Read More
