And The Predictions Are In: Ne-Yo’s ‘Non-Fiction’ Set To Sell…

ne-yo-non-fiction-thatgrapejuice

Fact: Despite being greeted with mixed critical review, ‘Non-Fiction,’ the latest album from serial hitmaker Ne-yo, is bound to break into the Billboard 200’s top 10 upon the chart’s refreshing next week.  Coming as the only new title predicted to impact the chart’s currently reigning dectet, the album will give the singer-songwriter his sixth consecutive top 10 entry.

Fueled by the Jeezy-assisted ‘Money Can’t Buy’ and top 40 hit ‘She Knows’ ft. Juicy J, ‘Non-Fiction’ is set to be the crooner’s second release to hit charts without a top 10 single to support it.  A feat arguably to blame for its first week sales performance, as the project is on track to deliver his lowest numbers to date.

Chart Check: Nicki Minaj Close To Trumping Taylor Swift Hot 100 Record As Country Star Loosens Grip On Billboard 200’s Top Spot

nicki drake thatgrapejuice wayne

This week’s Hot 100 and Billboard 200 saw little movement in their respective top 10s, but elsewhere on the charts, the shakeups are making history.

As her album ‘The PinkPrint’ continues to leave its mark on album charts’ upper ranking, Nicki Minaj is seeing her latest release – ‘Truffle Butter’ ft. Drake & Lil Wayne – edge her closer to surpassing chart titan Taylor Swift‘s status for entries on the Hot 100.

Becoming the rapstress’s 60th mention on the tally, only Swift (66) and Aretha Franklin (73) block her ability to claim the title of “most entries on the Hot 100 by a female.”  Her Young Money co-stars, Drake & Wayne, also have reason to rejoice as ‘Truffle’s trek up charts lands them in Hot 100 history books as well.

“Lil Wayne logs his 124th entry, second only to the cast of Fox’s Glee‘s record 207. Drake makes his 74th visit, tying late icon Ray Charles for sixth place…” (source)

The good tidings bring the trio a much needed distraction from their growing label drama, but tuck in below to see who else is celebrating for chart moves on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 this week:

Katy Perry Reveals She’s Studying Beyonce For Superbowl Performance Tips

katy perry-thatgrapejuice-beyonce-superbowl

“She’s like five notches above me, and those levels are compounded in difficulty.”

The quote above was pulled from Billboard’s recent sit down with pop sex kitten Katy Perry as she readies her highly anticipated Super Bowl showing (February 1st) by studying the 2013 outing of Beyonce.

Following in the top-rated, show-stopping footsteps of Madonna, Bey, and Bruno Mars, the ‘Dark Horse’ diva knows that pressure is riding high for her to match or surpass their epic performances.  To at least put her best foot forward, Katy shared that she’s consulted (in one way or the other) her most recent halftime show predecessors and is using a number of tricks to prepare for this Sunday.

Check out some of them below:

katy perry thatgrapejuice

The countdown is officially on to Katy Perry‘s “must-see” Super Bowl halftime show.

Coming to a screen near you Sunday night live from the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ, all eyes will be on the diva and her kooky antics to see if they live up to Superbowl showings past (i.e. Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Janet Jackson).

Sending anticipation into overdrive with the announcement that rocker Lenny Kravitz will be among guests joining her on the mega-outing, Perry teased her newly revealed guest in a recent interview:

“Q: Are you planning on inviting any guest performers?

A: Yes, of course. There were a couple of names I tossed around and this one really stuck. I thought OK, it’s time for this person to have their shine again.

Q: Is it someone who’s on one of your records?

A: Hmmm. That’s funny should ask. Let’s just say I’ve been familiar with them before in a roundabout way.”

Just as her Billboard magazine feature makes its way to shelves, the Associated Press has revealed who surprise guest #2 will be.  Tuck in below for the spoiler:

To give it a boost along its way, Ci offers a stripped version of the tune which, let us tell it, seems to pack more of an emotional punch than its recorded version.  Get into it below and tell us if you agree:
