Since her ascent to fame, there’s been an effort to write Nicki Minaj off as a talent deficient fad- lacking the commercial power to go up against the Rihanna’s and Katy‘s of the world.
Well, as her #1 albums in the United Kingdom and the USA prove, the above is anything but true.
However, if there are any still in doubt of Minaj’s market power, pop open the link and prepare to be dazzled, below…
The above is the current tally on Japanese iTunes, made up of the highest selling digital tracks in the country.
As you can see, every single release barring #7, 8, 9 is a Nicki number, all of which are lifted from her latest album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’.
Clearly a record breaking feat, she is now the first act in chart history to have 7 Japanese Top Ten digital releases and a #1 album in the same week, besting previous efforts by Beyonce, Rihanna and ‘21′ singer Adele.
