Since its release on October 28th, Nicki Minaj‘s Hip Hop bop ‘Only’ has sold 399,125 units, set to cross the 400,000 mark by the end of this week.

Impressive, right? A reminder of the rapper’s commercial prowess, right? Of course.

So, can anyone explain where said commercial prowess is hiding in the UK?

You know, where the rapper’s latest album ‘The Pinkprint‘ is now on course to fall out of the Top 40 two weeks after its release.

Nicki Minaj Sets New ‘Billboard Hot 100′ Record As New Album Tanks Internationally

nicki-minaj-that-grape-juice-2014-3000

It may have debuted at the 251,000 mark in the US, but Nicki Minaj‘s ‘The Pinkprint’ has failed to soar as high in international skies this week, moving less than 45,000 units outside of her domestic market.

Though doing very little to shake her status as the world’s highest selling female rapper, global sales of her new album were so low that she failed to crack the Top Ten in Australia, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Ireland and Germany, where it debuted at #69.

Fortunately, it wasn’t all bad news for the performer.

Why the entertainer has good reason to celebrate her run on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’?

And The Sales Are In! Nicki Minaj’s ‘The Pinkprint’ Sold…

nicki-minaj-cavalli-that-grape-juice-2014

Last week, fans of the prolific Nicki Minaj were upset to learn that her new album ‘The Pinkprint’ was unlikely to open with sales any higher than the 180,000 units mark.

What this projection didn’t take into account was an error made by a number of major retailers who failed to stock the release on its due date, forcing fans to pick up the album after said error and projection had been made.

The result? Egg on the faces of those who mocked the rapper’s numbers prematurely.

Confused?

Everybody Hates Iggy Azalea…But Why?

Has "winning" caused Iggy to lose hip hop's respect?

iggy collage

Some of rap history’s biggest sellers, from Nicki Minaj and Rick Ross to Nelly, Pitbull, and Flo Rida have all had their rap (and street) credibility questioned at one point in their careers.  None listed, however, were rebuked with the intensity of criticism like that aimed at Iggy Azalea.

From barely a buzz to a bulls-eye, she went from obscurity to enemy #1 in just a year.

Besides the unique position of being a white female emcee from Australia who rapped with a southern U.S. accent, not much else surrounded the newcomer’s name initially. In fact, this time last year she seemed poised to take rank with the many other unsung female rappers trying to find a place in the male-dominated game.

Despite backing from one of the genre’s frontrunners (T.I.) and a number of well-prepared videos to boot, success would not knock on the rapstress’s door until the unveiling of the pop-cloaked number ‘Fancy’ and its ‘Clueless’-themed music video. In conjunction with a timely “assistant role” on rising pop starlet Ariana Grande‘s hit ‘Problem,’ Iggy, seemingly out of nowhere, was thrust to the top of mainstream music consciousness.

Undoubtedly a dream come true for any female rapper, especially a Caucasian one traipsing a path so many before her had failed (see:  Sarai, Kreayshawn), that dream would prove itself a nightmare as all but the very genre she pursued would openly embrace her.

Has “winning” caused Iggy to lose hip hop’s respect?
