Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ Crushes Competition With New Certifications / UK Introduces Age-Rating System For Similar Videos

nicki minaj anaconda video that grape juice 20141 600x252 Nicki Minajs Anaconda Crushes Competition With New Certifications / UK Introduces Age Rating System For Similar Videos

It may be a case of “mission accomplished” for rapper Nicki Minaj today, likely to be uttered by the star following the release of her brand new visual piece, ‘Anaconda.

Released to support its parent album ‘The Pink Print‘, the single and its raunchy video now seem to be the gifts that keep on giving for all of the Rapper’s material, pushing sales of its predecessors to a number of enviable milestones.

Details below…

In the space of 24 hours, ‘Anaconda‘s Casper Smart-backed music video has been streamed 20,9311,451 times on ‘VEVO’ alone, guaranteeing it a second week in the Top 40 when its streaming points are added to its sales.

Why we’ve called its release the gift that keeps on giving? Well, one needn’t look any further than the Recording Industry Association of America to find out why, after the company awarded the rapper several new certifications following ‘Conda’s explosive arrival.

Indeed, after watching it surpass global sales of 7.2 million units before its first birthday, Minaj’s 2012 hit ‘Starships’ has now been certified 6x Platinum in the US alone for sales of over 6 million units in the mark, while her ‘Print’-pulled ‘Pills N Potions’ which has now been awarded a Gold certification for sales of 500,000 units moved since May 21st 2014.

Meanwhile, as 2012′s ‘Beez in the Trap‘ braces itself to receive a Platinum shower before its third anniversary, 2010′s ‘Super Bass’ sits on a throne made up of 8 million US units, handing Minaj an 8x Platinum crown as its supporting album ‘Pink Friday’ turns its nose up at her the rapper’s rivals, perhaps feeling itself after learning it sold 3.8 million units worldwide.

This, after moving 1,035,000 in the first month of its release and outselling Rihanna‘s 2010 effort ‘Loud’ in the United States.

Nicki’s success on both a singles and albums tip sees her extend her lead as one of the highest selling rappers (male or female) of all time, and sees her surpass efforts made by ‘She’s a B*tch‘ femcee Missy Elliott, who- despite arguably being the better performer between the two- has been outpaced by Minaj when international sales are thrown into the equation.

In related, critics unimpressed by Nicki’s titillating antics in the ‘Anaconda’ visual may be pleased to learn that UK is to introduce an age-based rating system for music videos that are able to be viewed online.

‘Billboard‘ explains:

The scheme’s introduction coincides with changes to the Video Recordings Act, which from October will also require physical music video releases to include age-classification ratings.

“Helping families with children and parenting shouldn’t stop at childbirth,” Prime Minister David Cameron said during a speech at London’s Royal College of GPs in which he announced the pilot scheme.

“To take just one example — bringing up children in an internet age, you are endlessly worried about what they are going to find online… From October, we’re going to help parents protect their children from some of the graphic content in online music videos by working with the British Board of Film Classification, Vevo and YouTube to pilot the age rating of these videos,” Cameron went on to state.

    Is this really news she made a porn
    Music video which she knows people will
    Watch p********* and perverts men will
    Jerk off to but at the end of the day
    Her music sucks nicki had to go below
    The bottom of the gutter to get a hit
    Because she could not rely on her rap
    The nerve of her coming for Iggy when
    she had to show her fake nasty b***
    to sell record she really a joke

    Sister, just stop. p********* and perverts? No. The video is very s*** but why do you have to take it to the extreme. Nicki Minaj and the dancers in the video are ADULT women, not underage girls so please fall back with such stupid comparisons. Not everything that is sexual is deviant.

    Crtfy paved the way lls! Moreover, the girl had to practically clap her ass shots off to gain views on vevo. The song is still garbage, and i dont even hear people raving over the vid either. And her one album is outselling loud by a few units and thats something to praise? Lol. Please stop making up new rating and accolade systems to make nicki a powerhouse artist because she is still considered lowkey. Just a step above jhene, rita, and teyanna.

    The song is horribly stupid and childish. Of course we all knew it would get plenty attention due to her being half naked in the video. I agree, its sad that females have to rely on their body to sell records and not their talent. Nickis flow in this song is garbage, and the video is pure trash. But thats what this generation is all about.

    Shoutout to Nicki. Hate it or love it.. she is definitively winning right now! That video is her best to date and before her album has even dropped she’s managed to enter into a new realm of celebrity reserved only for the biggest of stars–where now, her every move Will result in endless debates, conversations and think pieces. There’s no right way to explore uncharted waters in the Female Rap Game but I tip my hat to both she and Iggy for outshining the boys all summer long.

    First of all, you cannot blame Nicki for rape culture. It was here before she got here & it will be here when she is gone. What was she wearing, what was she doing out at that time of night, she shouldn’t have been showing her ass in the video, etc….these are things that rape apologist say to condone rape. This is NEVER acceptable. Blaming women for their own rape is deplorable, disgusting, and irresponsible. Check this idiocy immediately.

    Now, you knew going in that this video would be explicit. You don’t like explicit videos? Don’t watch them. It’s really that simple.

    This is art . At the end of the day . She’s not going out
    On the streets showing her ass is she?
    But because she’s black and showing her ass she’s
    Automatically a h**??
    Actress are often getting naked baring it all For the world to

    Girl nicki is a self drag right now lol. Its pittyful that the barbz are clinging to such trash as an accomplishment. Trying to go the wrecking ball route to gain views. Unfortunately there is not award for vevo views. Moreover, the barbz can squak when it spends time on the billboard top 5 for consecutive weeks. Until then., my anaconda dont want none unless you got hits hun!

    Did you ignore the rest of this story. Nicki is selling singles in different genres. She does nt need to worry about iggy’s non rapping ass. Iggy is a pop star anyway. Nicki slayed and hung with real rappers in tracks like Jay z, Kanye, Rick Ross, Em, Wiz khalifa, Juicy J, Lil wayne, drake, pusha T.

    I’m just waiting on a track with J. Cole and Kendrick Lamar. We don’t need white people’s approval on rap. We started it hun
