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:

Chart Check: Meghan Trainor Hits #1 With Debut Album / Taylor Swift Certified 4x Platinum

meghan-trainor-thatgrapejuice

It seems as though what Meghan Trainor is really all about is clocking #1s.

For, after pop superstar Beyonce passed on the female empowerment song ‘All About That Bass,’ Trainor took the tune to the top of the Hot 100 for 8 consecutive weeks.  Now, fans looking for the Massachusetts-bred songbird’s album on charts shouldn’t look anywhere but up as she’s currently perched atop the Billboard 200 with her debut ‘Title.’

Besting initial reports of 220,000 first week sales by nearly 20,000, the burgeoning diva saw her first title on the tally zoom to #1 on the wings of 238,000 units sold.  This, just days before word had it country pop princess Taylor Swift saw her blockbuster ‘1989’ album edge past the 4 million mark.

If you were wondering when was the last time an album shifted 4 million copies in the U.S. you shouldn’t be surprised to know that it was when Swift did it herself a year ago with ‘Red.’
