Nicki Minaj & Lady GaGa Make Gains On ‘Social 50′

3248974a6859d0894010ec528448e2c7 Nicki Minaj & Lady GaGa Make Gains On Social 50

They’re smart, talented and have taken their respective lanes by storms, but despite being worlds apart creatively this week has seen Lady GaGa and Nicki Minaj make significant gains on Billboard’s Social 50.

Find out how below…

A ranking of the most active artists on the world’s leading social networking site, the week on week chart tally also counts the number of ‘friend requests’, song plays and page views to rank the acts according to their popularity that week.

This week, Lady GaGa rises 8 spots to #10, perhaps as a result of her forthcoming North American leg of her ‘Born This Way Ball’ Tour- which arrives January 11th.

Her rise was also helped in part by her ‘Born Brave’ announcement, which saw her reveal that she will provide free mental health counselling to her ‘Monsters’ during the sold tour, in association with her Harvard University backed ‘Born This Way Foundation‘. As a result of this, the singer gained a cool 112,000 new Facebook fans, pushing conversations related to the star on the site by 18% while her overall YouTube and VEVO plays soared by 11%.

Meanwhile, ‘Masquerade‘ Rapper Minaj jumps 4 spots to #6 as momentum for her ‘American Idol’ debut intensifies.

Ironic, considering her lengthy hiatus from Twitter, which came to an end last night days before ‘Idol‘ hits FOX, January 16th, but hours after she extended her lead as the world’s fastest selling Female Rapper, following chart records broken in the UK.

Her rise also came as a result of the hype garnered around her NYE gig at Las Vegas’ ‘PURE‘, while her infectious number ‘Va Va Voom‘ spent its 10th week on Billboard’s Radio Songs chart.

    RC Replied:

    oh okay so why you bothered about her if you don’t like her music… keep an eye on your faves honey. its called branding not selling out. music is there job and they have to work to get there money some way or another. theres dangerously in love, bday, sasha fierce and 4 its not a bad thing to change your music genre as the queen bee has mixed it up too.

    Some may call them gimmicks or way to crazy but I love that there always out of the box and some times way to much, it makes them…..well them. Lol Why people on this site are so obsessed with people just being normal is beyond me? The hole Adele standing there and just singing is cool but its ALSO cool to go crazy and come out of an Egg or Looking like an anime Charter from the hood! Lol (Being Normal- where’s the fun in that)?

    Gaga has reached the heights of success like she’s always wanted and has still managed to stay a humble and genuine person. Good for her.
