e8b682e723f2bae814c3d75d0ba096fe Nicki Minaj: Beez In The Trap Outsells Madonnas Give Me All Your Luvin.

Contrary to popular belief, one doesn’t always need a note worthy chart position to score what is otherwise… a smash hit.

Sure, while most songs that that come under category usually come with a Top Ten position to show for its troubles, there are some cuts- especially  those of Hip Hop persuasion- that succeed in pulling in mega numbers without chart glory.

Now, in cementing her status as one of 2012’s highest selling acts, Nicki Minaj continues to surprise the world with fresh stats pulled on her single ‘Beez In The Trap‘. A single, many had written off as a commercial failure.

Despite peaking at #48 on the Hot 100, ‘Trap’ sits pretty with sales of 783,286 units sold since its April 24th release.

 

Going some way to explaining why her team have been a little ‘lazy’ with regards to pushing her singles, it is one of the only singles to be released by the Rapper not to have sold 1 million US units within the year of release, with ‘Starships‘ boasting sales of over 4 million units and ‘Pound The Alarm’ which hit the 1 million mark last week.

‘Va Va Voom':

What’s more interesting however, is that the Hip Hop heavy cut has outsold Madonna‘s 2012 release, ‘Give Me All Your Luvin‘- which the Rapper also features on. Mind blowing, considering its Superbowl 2012 backed push, ‘Luvin’ is yet to hit sales of 600,000 units, marking a commercial low for both Minaj and Madonna.

‘Roman’s Revenge':

Catch Nicki on FOX’s ‘American Idol‘ when it hits US screens January 16th.

    Nicki is very accomplished, no one can deny that about her.. And if you cannot salute her accomplishment’s just as an observer, your a hater a straight up hater.. Yes 2012 hasn’t been full of positive things for Nicki,:

    Yes, Her Album Didn’t Sell 1 Million Units in the U.S
    Yes, She’s Not Grammy Nominated
    Yes, The Wigs Are Sometimes Too Much
    Yes, Most Of Her Music Doesn’t Always Have A Meaning
    Yes, She’s Neglected Hip-Hop For A Short While
    Yes, She’s Displayed A Poor Reaction On American Idol Towards Mariah

    But, for each negative of Nicki’s there’s 2 More Accomplishments of her’s, Nicki has Accomplished thing’s in less than 5 years, THAT MANY HIP-HOP ARTIST WILL NEVER ACCOMPLISH IN THEIR WHOLE CAREER.. The b**** is the perfect example of hustling , coming from nothing to becoming the first female rapper too ever be on the Forbes List & transitioning from being an underground artist to a best selling international artist.. Nicki Minaj has made it, keep on hating!

    -Super Bowl With Madonna
    -A World Wide Album That Sold Past 1.5 Million
    -Getting An 18 Million Dollar Pepsi Endorsement
    -Winning A VMA & 2 AMAs (& Grammy Performance)
    -An Arena World Wide Tour That Sold Out
    -12 Million Dollar Pay Day With A.I
    -5 Million To Host A New Years Party

    **Drops Mic, Because I Could Go On For Days**

    Nicki Is Winning & She Will Continue Too in 2013 With The Pink Print…

    Wow everyone is really throwing mad shade at Nicki Minaj, I’m starting to think people are being paid just to throw shade at Nicki.. Like She’s being paid 12 million dollars or more just to give her thoughts & opinions, while all her Naysayers post negative comments about her shortcomings of 2012..

    -Yes Roman Reloaded Hasn’t Sold 1 Million In The Us..

    -Yes Nicki Isn’t Grammy Nominated This Year..

    But what About Everything Else She’s Accomplished??

    -Super Bowl With Madonna
    -A World Wide Album That Sold Past 1.5 Million
    -Getting An 18 Million Dollar Pepsi Endorsement
    -Winning A VMA & 2 AMAs (& Grammy Performance)
    -An Arena World Wide Tour That Sold Out

    I Love Nicki Minaj & I know for a fact that this isn’t going to defeat her, Nicki is a lot things but she’s never been a quitter & she won’t be turned into one.. What I love about Nicki & Hate also is that she’s isn’t scared of being ridiculed, for doing things that will put her in a negative light in many people thoughts “She is the definition being fearless”.. Even as a fan I never will understand how she has the courage too do things even Wear things, that will cause black lash.. Most Importantly, Her Last Album wasn’t Hip-Hop orientated what so ever, Roman Reloaded was experiment inside & out.. The Pop portion of the album went hard, but the Hip-Hop side lacked Nicki’s Rap Skills.. The Re-Up was dope.. The Pink Print Will Win A Grammy..

    But Congrats on the Beez In The Trap Sell’s.. Song Is nice to Drive Tooo

    Umm, not hating but, this post is pointless. Nobody thinks beez in the trap was a flop. Generally it is seen as one of the albums highlights. And it is a hip hop song so top 10 hot 100 wasn’t exactly written in the stars. But it was a favorite track so people bought it! Everyone loved the song so… Only Nicki, Rita, and occasionally Beyonce get these ‘minor happenings’ posts. It really is sad. Next week Nicki Minaj will get another praise for outselling Lady Gagas perfume in Swaziland. And I will read how amazingly impressive that should be considering only 1% of the population there could afford to purchase a fragrance. Nobody was here for Madge in the US this go round. Just because she outsold a 50 year old woman 30 years after her peak is not something to warrant a post. Unless of course you wanna help boost their achievements against a certain other person.

    For a strictly rap/hip-hop song, especially one that is by a female rap artist and didn’t get any promotion whatsoever 700,000+ is excellent. It went GOLD. Nicki is doing very well for a rap artist and it’s hard as hell for female rappers to succeed. Even if she does POP… she is still rapping. Had she just been a singer doing all these POP songs, every single would sell 5 million+ worldwide and so would the album.
