It’s Official: Kanye West Trumps Nicki Minaj & Ne-Yo On The Album Charts

It’s official: the only person who can beat Kanye West is Kanye West. The rapper’s latest effort, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, has captured the top spot on the charts this week, selling an impressive 518,775 copies. This means that the record has sold almost 70k more than his previous effort, ‘808 & Heartbreak’, which debuted with just over 450k in the same week two years prior.

In fact, West has managed to outperform even Nicki Minaj whose ‘Pink Friday’ debut LP sold 371,049 units. Minaj has no reason to worry, however, as her nemesis Lil Kim’s debut album, ‘Hardcore’, entered the charts at #11 back in November 1996.

Ne-Yo managed to land a position in the top 10 at #8 with ‘Libra Scale’ which sold over 117k copies. This accomplishment marks the highest entry for the album on any chart worldwide as it missed the top 10 in every territory including the UK where it debuted at #11 despite his ‘Beautiful Monster’ single peaking at #1.

There were several other interesting moves on this week’s tally. Rihanna’s ‘Loud’ LP experienced a 35% dip in sales, selling another 133,662 copies despite the Thanksgiving rush. On the other hand, Taylor Swift’s ‘Speak Now’ had a 71% upsurge, claiming the #3 spot with 255,991 records sold. Finally, Christina Aguilera’s ‘Burlesque’ soundtrack shifted 62, 514 units, entering the chart at #18.
