Remy Ma Beef Boosts Nicki Minaj Album Sales

Those who have spun Remy Ma‘s latest studio set will agree that her work on the set is stellar.

Alas, her decision to go public with her problem with Nicki Minaj has only served to reignite more commercial interest in her rival’s music than her own.

Details below…

Streaming aside, sales of her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ rose by 81% in the last chart week thanks to members of the general public who swarmed digital outlets to purchase the set to support Minaj following the unleashing of Ma’s ‘Shether.’

 

As stated above, these numbers do not include digits whipped up by streaming data as they were generated by pure sales only.

Following its release in November 2010, ‘Friday’ opened with opening month sales of 1 million units and has gone on to outsell Rihanna‘s hit-kissed ‘Loud’ (which dropped in the same month) in the United States.

      It’s called a point of reference/comparison. Both albums were released about the same time by two popular/crossover, African American female acts. It’s a compliment to both ladies in a way but the fact that Nicki outsold Rihanna really puts her commercial value into perspective.

    Off topic kinda: in order to take Nicki down you would have to beat her at her own game. We can argue all day who the better rapper is but at the end of the day the numbers do matter. The score board at the end of the game matters, doesn’t take away the talent from the losing team but the winner is still the winner. Nicki isn’t rapping for the streets anymore, but her fans clearly know how to show support vs. “big props to Remy for dissing Nicki *retweet*” the fact Remy’s older work didnt increase in sales, after Shether, shows a lot. Nobody is actually interested in her.

      That’s so true! Let’s get em to beat Nicki at her own game. All female rappers gotta get a fake ass, dabble in pop music, get hand outs from white america like be a host on the Voice or some talent show, swindle white ppl who don’t care abiut hip hop culture, w**** it out on IG, play dress up and swagger jack other female rappers outfits, basically do the most to be relevant when the talent ain’t good enough to draw niccas in. F*ck barz! F*ck originality.! F*ck the streets!! Those days are over. Female rappers must follow Nicki’s “pinkprint” just to compete with their monopolizer. 😂

        I still don’t know what Nicki personally did to you hun. But any up and coming female rapper would love to be on Nicki’s level. That doesn’t mean they want to make the same kind of music as her but it’s clear crossing over is very necessary. Nicki made it very clear when she was still underground that she didn’t want to just be another female rapper. So if helps you sleep better at night by calling her a pop star thinking that’s some kind of insult then so be it.

      Don’t patronize Kwinzy. I’ve made it clear time and time again why I hate Nicki. She’s an industry creation, a gimmick with a pretty face who only serves to hold other female rappers back. 7 years of this trash being force fed down the public’s throat as being the best hip hop has to ever. You’re mad cuz I can see right through a fake ass person. The vision will always stay on 20/20, know that! A pop star she is. Nicki’s “tactics” can’t be considered rap at all. If they were J. Cole and Kendrick would be pulling out EDM hits left, right and centre to be considered kings of rap. So FOH. I find you only come out ya trench when Nicki is mentioned. You gotta be one of her head trolls…

If she’s such a gimmick, then be mad at the industry for highlighting her. I respect your honesty and passion but I still feel like it’s unnecssary to hate her that much.

        It’s not about Nicki being successful and it’s about Nicki being successful in her OWN lane without destroying other female rappers’ legacies. The fact her and Iggy Azalea are the only chicks with platinum albums in the last 10 years speaks volumes about how shitty the industry has become. No I’m not gonna give Nicki a pass and just blame the industry; her greed is part of the problem. She’s surrounded by a bunch of yes men who do what they say just so she won’t feel insecure when another gets some shine. That’s not “winning” all the money in the world won’t ever earn respect with ha snake ass. You should be thanking me for leveling the playing field. I make you hoez THINK. #staywoke

    Remy needs to drop a track like spaghetti or something instead of that track with Seyvn. I sometimes can’t stand the screechiness in Sevyns voice and she uses too much autotune. She got her sound from chris brown but it’s very blah because everyone dose it now.

Nicki don’t want it with no one in the industry right now. She will piggy back her way to a partial number 1 and a few album sales. The petty beefs to engage viewers is childish. She is about to drop a video. So all of this is child’s play. Something rihanna has no time for. She to busy being booked for all types of outlets. Plus has songs charting from a year and change ago with no promotion. Anyways helps us get love on the brain to number 1! Stream, buy, buy again!!!!

    Do you think the Barbs have grown up enough to ask critical questions? Nicki’s music is moving differently because she is back with Drake, OVO. Nicki’s music was basically stripped from radio when she was with Meek. Now, Drake is pulling strings again. Please go to the internet and read articles about how to get your music played on Big Time radio. It’s all about connections, distributors, and record labels.
