Pound The Alarm : Nicki Minaj Extends Lead As Highest Charting Female Rapper

Published: Sunday 22nd Jul 2012 by David


In an age where most entertainers struggle to pull in a numbers worthy of their marketing budget, it seems Nicki Minaj has become an unlikely exception.

Indeed, despite being the front woman for the once unflattering field of Female Rap, the Pepsi darling now ranks as one of Pop’s highest selling entities, enjoying two Multi-Platinum #1 LPs and the record for spending the most consecutive weeks in the US Top Ten with ‘Starships‘.

Now, by way of her latest single ‘Pound The Alarm’, she has extended her lead as the highest charting Female Rapper of any genre.

Find out how below…

Now perched at #9, Minaj is now the only Femcee since Missy Elliott to watch two singles from the same LP to peak in the UK Top Ten, with ‘Starships’ at #2 and ‘Alarm’ now at #9.

However, with both singles peaking higher than Elliott’s releases(‘Get Ur Freak’ on & ‘4 My People’) Minaj now extends her lead as the country’s highest charting Female Rapper.

This,as she has scored more Top Ten releases in the nation than any  of her contemporaries- past or present.

Sure to serve as even greater news, this week saw her sophomore album ,’Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ , hit sales of 968,000 units worldwide  generated since its April 3rd release, set to rise even further with the launch of her 2012 Arena tour.

Thus far, the MC has made 31 appearances on the British singles chart since 2009.

  2. sam July 22, 2012

    iggy coming for her wig…

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      Who’s that? She local?

    • SisterB July 22, 2012

      At least Iggy don’t lip sync on stage like Bubble Gum Barbie

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        Iggy wish she was bubblegum barbie but she too busy sucking black d*** & trynna act like a country B****, stfu…

      • Marchal Zolanski July 22, 2012

        Nicki Never Lip Sync

  3. Sam July 22, 2012

    Ya’ll are so dumb. She won’t come close to Lauryn Hill in terms of sales, impact, influence, respect and TALENT. Stop acting like this trash bag is anything special…she’ll be working in Burger King with Lil Kim in a few years.

    • WELL DAMN! July 22, 2012

      Well that remains to be seen so STAY TUNED…

      • YesIDIDBITCH July 22, 2012

        B**** jump in you’re starship, and fly away h** if you think she stands a chance…ugh

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      Why does she have to? Lauryns album was recognized as an R&B album by industry standards.. . just see the chart. Nicki’s millions have already surpassed KRIMINAL so keep trying to make that happen, boo. She will never pick up your shift at Burger King. Get back to work flipping those burgers, ma… U TIGHT.

      • Sam July 22, 2012

        LOL at people thinking Nicki will have half the impact/influence/RESPECT of LAURYN HILL. Honey, if Miseducation is an R&B album, Nicki’s albums are straight pop records.

        I think you’re forgetting THE SCORE too. One of the best hip-hop albums of all time. L Boogie’s verse on Manifest >>>> Nicki’s cheap wigs. The burger king CLOWN will join her sister Lil Kim eventually.

      • msteefromdc July 25, 2012

        U SOUND DUMB…NICKI HAS NEVER DONE ANYTHING KIM HASN’T ALREADY DONE IN HER LONG ALMOST 20 YEAR CAREER…WHEN U ARE AN ICON AND RESPECTED IN THE RAP GAME U CAN GO ON TOUR WITH YOUR OLD CATALOG..NO NEW SINGLES ON THE RADIO, NO PROMO, AND NO LABEL BACKING YOU…THAT’S BAWSE B**** S***…NICKI WOULD NEVER B ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH THAT. SO HAVE SEVERAL SEATS!

    • Michaelangelo July 22, 2012

      I agreed with you until you threw Kim in it. She’s been working her tours etc since 2010.

    • priima July 22, 2012

      when you all get through…she still isnt hiphop. and the converstaion ENDS there.

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        THE CONVERSATION ENDED WHEN I TYPED WHAT I SAID, B****!! YOUR IRRELEVANT YOU HAVE NO SUCCESS IN THE WORDS OF JAY -Z “UNTIL YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED MORE THAN WHO YOU’RE CRITIQUING, IT’S JUST VAPID ENERGY..” YOU’RE NOT RELEVANT!!!! #FIN

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        YOU’RE **

    • Katie July 22, 2012

      @Sam Just stop, I agreed with up until your brought Kim into this because that was just out right disrespectful.

  4. MissImpartial July 22, 2012

    I could swear that Missy Elliot had number one hits and multi platinum albums. Sam I can not believe she is doing bigger than Missy world wide.

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      The proof is in the pudding, dear. Missy’s “Cookbook” was a flop. Not to mention that artists didn’t have the same global appeal in the 90s as they do now. Dont let missys platinum albums fool you, that doesn’t mean ANYTHING was #1!

      • ImMadAsHell July 22, 2012

        & PFRR is also a flop with 11 million followers she couldn’t do platinum in a month at least.

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        13 MILLION, F**… & ITS PLATINUM WITH A TOP 10 SINGLE… HAS BEYONCE ACCOMPLISHED THAT THIS ERA??? OR DID IT TAKE HER A CENTURY TO PRODUCE??? U HATERS KILL ME

  5. Benron July 22, 2012

    I don’t understand why her fans think she is winning since she is beating “female rappers’ which has had the amount of promo, budget and hype that she did? Which Female rapper crossed over to pop to get attention when Rap wasn’t enough. Now that she wants to be a POPSTAR she should be compared to them.

    With that being said Talk That Talk sold 1million worldwide in 3 weeks. And Loud went platinum in the U.s in 2 months aswelll, but it sold 850k instead of 550k. Just for alll those Nicki Stans who think she is “slaying Rihanna”

    But congrats to Nicki for killing the U.K. singles chart.

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      So its her fault that shes promoted more than these other flops?? Seek help.

    • kelly July 22, 2012

      AND did you know Rihanna’s Please dont stop was number 1 in 7 countries and sold nearly half a million in the UK?

      Also, only girl sold 990k copies

      That song she had with emimen sold over a MILLION COPIES IN THE UK AND WAS NUMBER ONE IN 22 COUNTIES?

      THAT SONG SHE DONE TI , LIVE YOUR LIFE – SOLD NEARLY HALF A MILLION IN THE UK – THE BIGGEST HIT OF TI’S CAREER.

    • kelly July 22, 2012

      TTT IS NUMBER 6 IN THE UK LP CHART

    • miranda July 22, 2012

      She never said she wanted to be a pop star Let her experiment with her music.

  6. checory July 22, 2012

    BENRON!!! EXACTLY.. she isnt doing Rap Music so stop comparing her to Female Rappers.. It Think these TGJ punks trying to cook up FAN WARS

  7. ASAP (As Sincere As Possible) July 22, 2012

    Yeah, cool. congrats to Nicki. But no mention for Nas getting his first UK top 10 album with ‘Life Is Good’? REAL rap is in the top 10 of the UK, you don’t get this way too often.

  8. TeamBreezy July 22, 2012

    Wait, yall said 2 Multi Platinum LPs and RR has only sold 900k ww since April!!??
    o_0

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      I wont argue with a FLOP BROWN stan… you’ll lose every time.. BOTH ALBUMS ARE CERTIFIED PLATINUM. Pink friiday is close to 2x plat, being 1.7 & counting… Her sales are expected to surpass platinum for PF:RR which is why more albums were REQUESTED from the label. RIAA can not count album sales, specifically, its impossible…

      • checory July 22, 2012

        Its not even 900k In the US

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        HOW’S GRAFFITI DOING?? *DEAD*

  9. DOSSOME July 22, 2012

    when TRIUMPHANT Hits the radio then we’ll see where nikki’s ass will be.

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      SWEETIE, MARIAH’S LAST ALBUM WAS A FLOP, LETS NOT KID OURSELVES…

      • YaMammy July 22, 2012

        Just like Roman Reloaded. Toodles, stupid h**!

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        YET U USE NICKI LYRICS TO OFFEND NICKI?? HMMM. #BEENAFAN #DISMISSSED, YOU’RE LATE….

  10. the real xoxo July 22, 2012

    LOL she sold out to pop audiences and still cant bag a #1 single? the queen lauryn done that easily with “doo wop” a HIP HOP song. she will never reach lauryn hill or even missys level in terms of sales, talent and influence.

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      IN WHAT YEAR??? HAS LAURYN OR MISSY HAD A PEPSI AD??? 2 CONSECUTIVE #1 ALBUMS??? I MEAN BOTH LADIES ARE NICE & PAVED STREETS, BUT LETS NOT TRY TO ACT LIKE THEIR SUCCESS IS MARKED AS RELEVANT TODAY… Y’ALL KILL ME TRYNNA BRING UP OLD ASS ARTISTS AS THOUGH THEY DONT SALUTE NICKI.. LAURYN STAYS BIGGING HER UP.. IT’S NO LONGER THEIR ERA… DO YOU KNOW WHAT POP MUSIC IS?? ITS ANYTING POPULAR THEREFORE LAURYN HILL WAS ‘POP’, DUMBASS…

    • WELL DAMN! July 22, 2012

      DAMN! Nicki has only been in the game for 2 years and y’all already comparing her sales to Lauren and Missy? Thats a compliment in itself. I’m sure Nicki thanks you.

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        exactly!!!!!!! they dont know they actually making her more famous w/ these comparisons! if u dont like her its best to NOT talk about her, she already trending on Twitter daily! LOL THX!

  11. YouDoRealize… July 22, 2012

    If she was actually stil Hip Hop & Rap this would be stunning. Since she sold out not to much… STILL jaming to PTA

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      YOU’RE WHITE, YOU HAVE NO SAY IN WHAT’S ‘HIP-HOP’

      • YouDoRealize… July 22, 2012

        I’m black. Nigerian actually…

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        even worse. Hip hop began in NY so by default, anything she does is hip hop.. hip hop is NOT just gangsta rap. if you’re rapping about life topics (moment for life, fly, champion, masquerade) and inspiring, that makes it HIP HOP! dont let “starships” and this pro-lil kim propoganda fool you on the innanet… Nicki SLAYS

    • Trini_Minaj July 23, 2012

      @FAF u rep TM so well u slay my life! Lol. Tell dem b****** they aint about that life!

  12. YesIDIDBITCH July 22, 2012

    THis b**** would Fail if it wasn’t for SAM over hyping this h**. Come on now, the music she does is NOT RAP so how can she be beating any other female rapper?????? This b**** is competing with katy perry, and the rihannas, and in that arena this overly injected clown b**** is losing!! ugh

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      NICKI IS WINNING,… YOU WILL DEAL!

      • YesIDIDBITCH July 22, 2012

        I will deal, no you will STFU!

    • WELL DAMN! July 22, 2012

      If you’ve listened to Pound The Alarm DUMB ASS then you’ve heard her rapping at the beginning of the song. Nicki is hiphop and ain’t nothing you can do about it so kiss her overly injected ass.

      • YesIDIDBITCH July 22, 2012

        Take you’re head out her ass you tart

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        Ohhh you you’re from London, b**** GFTOH we talking about AMERICAN artists conquering & dominating WORLDWIDE! Go listen to Sugabagnes, C***!

  13. WELL DAMN! July 22, 2012

    If Nicki keeps on making hit pop/hiphop songs like this she’s gonna be snatching some pop diva’s wigs off. people are talking s*** saying Nicki is selling out but watch all these other female rappers come out doing pop songs. That includes Missy, Eve, Trina, and most def Lil’Kim if she can ever get her career off the ground again. Tho i highly doubt it. bwaahaha…

    • YesIDIDBITCH July 22, 2012

      This b**** POP music is f****** GENERIC. The females rappers that come out, and do pop songs remain true to hip hop at the same time unlike this starship riding b****…

      • WELL DAMN! July 22, 2012

        You have GOT to be a Nicki fan cus you are OVERLY concerned about her. And if her POP songs are GENERIC then people must love generic music cus she’s doing numbers. MULTI-PLATINUM NUMBERS. Now go SITCHO ASS DOWN!

      • miranda July 22, 2012

        Nicki has always been singing. Just because Starships was successful & made BILLBOARD history, y’all wanna hate!

  14. the real xoxo July 22, 2012

    and yes i agree she should be compared to rihanna, katy perry, ke$ha etc her POP peers. lauryn hill, missy and lil kim never made bubblegum music.
    twinkle twinkle little star.

  15. Gilberto July 22, 2012

    Rapper? LMFAO. She’s a pop singer. I don’t see any difference between her songs to Rihanna, Katy Perry, Ke$ha, Britney’s.
    Lauryn Hill, Missy Elliott, Eve, Lil Kim represent the real female hip-hop.
    “Thus far, the MC has made 31 appearances on the British singles chart since 2009.”
    I am not surprised. She records with anyone. She doensn’t know nothing about legacy.
    I am not surprised that her album was a major flop! It’s barely Gold! She completly gave her back to her true fanbase, jumped on the dance bandwagon and now she’s a single artist.

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      Girl, shut the f*** up w/ that white b**** in yo AVI. can she even get a POP hit?? “GIRLS” WAS #10938092 on billboard.. SIT.

      • Gilberto July 22, 2012

        4 still sold more than Nicki’s flop! Her album isn barely GOLD. LMFAO. FLOP. Beyoncé doesn’t need to jump on trends to sell like Nicki does. She’s a single artist.

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        U sure??? Last I checked i took it 5 mos to go plat when nicki was CERTIFIED PLATINUM in 2 mos! GAG! Ur idol & her fake baby antics will NEVER WIN! LOL

      • FAFaggot July 22, 2012

        Girl, you’re the most pathetic f***** walking this earth. When will you do something with your life? Beyonce vs Nicki? Really? Please go die somewhere. No one cares about your life, low T-cell having sissy.

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        Thanks for including my name… NEXT i want you to type PARAGRAPHS for me, B****! BEAT YOUR D*** TO ME LIKE YOU DO FOR NICKI!!! LOL #FAFFANCLUB SLAYING THESE TROLLING WILDERBEASTS!!!

      • Gilberto July 22, 2012

        @FAF
        B****, please! Gimmick Minaj’s last album sold less than 600k in US to date. DEAD. It isn’t my problem that they overshipped it. They were expecting big numbers from her, but she failed. LOL. I can’t. That’s what happens when you jump on the bandwagon. She’s a singer artist now.
        “When will you do something with your life? Beyonce vs Nicki? Really?”
        What? B****, you were the one who brought up Beyoncé’s name here. Gimmick Minaj’s fans (all them 3) don’t have arguments to win a star war against the BeyHive. You have only sticks and stones while we have nuclear bombs. LOL. DEAL.
        DRAGGED. SLAYED. FINISHED.
        P.S. Now go back to KFC’s job queue.

      • FAFRELOADED July 22, 2012

        & I WILL KEEP DRAGGING YOU UNTIL YOU GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK NAPPY GREASY HEAD PUNETA!!!!

  16. FAF July 22, 2012

    WHY ARE THE SAME FACTS DEBATED WITH YOU DUMB H*** IN EVERY THREAD?
    -NICKI’S NOT “RAP” B**** WHAT IS RAP EXACTLY??? SOUNDS TO ME LIKE SHE’S DOING IT IS SHE NOT ON THE RAP CHART? DEAD @ YA’LL TRYING TO MAKE YOUR FLOPS HAPPEN! & WHEN THEY DONT ALL THE SUDDEN THE B**** THATS “WINNING” IS AUTOMATICALLY “POP” POP OR NOT, THEY LOSE! PERIOD!

    – (INSERT ARTIST) IS BETTER: WHO GIVES A F***?? IS THIS THREAD ABOUT MISSY ELLIOTT, LIL KIM OR LAURYN HILL?? I DONT REMEMBER SEEING THEIR NAME. .

    -NICKI WONT BE AROUND IN (INSERT #) YEARS: B****, WHO GIVES A F***? SHE SHITTING ON THEM NOW!! IM NOT HERE FOR 1960S ACCOMPLISMENTS

      • That B*tch July 22, 2012

        Why are you getting mad hun? Nobody here is trying to s*** on her accomplishments but the fact is, she did cross over to another genre of music…nothing to be mad about, that’s just the reality of it.

      • TheTruthHurts July 22, 2012

        I leave the trolling to undesirable teenage misfits such as yourself. Now, like I said. If you don’t like the light that your fave is being seen in (as a POP singer that knows how to rap), then voice that concern to HER! At the end of the day, SHE chose that path, so getting mad at everyone EXCEPT her makes you sound pretty stupid.
        Everyone on this website likes pop music to an extent. The issue with her is, the quality of her pop music is garbage. Plain & simple. I could care less about her “WINNING” in all these Pop categories when she is labeled a RAPPER. A RAPPER, who no longer raps with a presence or a style that captivates people like she did 2-3 years ago.

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      hun that condescending s*** wont work! U still trolling while nicki’s dominating in every venue!!! Its not about me, its about your incompetence to see REALITY! cross over to WHAT GENRE?? I never heard kesha rap about b****** not bein s*** & not sayin nothin?? so tell me , dear is that POP?

    • TheTruthHurts July 22, 2012

      Number 1, take the CAPS LOCK out your voice.

      Number 2, Who are these alleged “flops” you and your other screenname swear people are pumpin up?
      Sit down, stupid.

      If someone feels she crossed over or “sold out” then so be it.
      Don’t like it? Tweet ur fave and let it be known. Otherwise, shut the f*** up and enjoy her basic music. Simple as that.

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        GIRL, SCOOT I WILL KEEP SHITTING ON YOU CAPS LOCK ON THIS MACBOOK! NOW TROLL ON…

  17. RIH&BEY July 22, 2012

    This deserved a new post when her single only moved up 1 spot???? TGJ, Y’all h*** are really reaching! IN other news: RIhanna’s Talk That Talk Skyrockets back into the Top 10 on the UK Album charts from #13 to #6!!!!

    • Gilberto July 22, 2012

      You just forgot to say that TTT is available for less than $4 dollars on iTunes UK. I can’t.

      • kelly July 22, 2012

        mOST ALBUMS will sell for that in this day and age. It is an industry problem, not a rih problem.

      • kelly July 22, 2012

        Learn about the actual business of music before you run your mouth.

      • kelly July 22, 2012

        £ 3.99 is worth more than $ 4. You are very uneducated.

  18. That B*tch July 22, 2012

    TGJ needs to stop comparing Nicki to the likes of Lil Kim, Missy Elliott and any other female rappers, she does not make hip hop music anymore, she crossed over. Her main competition is Rih, Gaga, and Katy Perry so y’all could just stop it right now.

  19. JOSE July 22, 2012

    Her album flopped point blank period stop trying to create records that are nonexistent

    • FAF July 22, 2012

    Oh my god ya stupid ass negros sound like some little as kids on here.. Ya negros sit on here and defend somebody who would not give a damn if somebody shot ya dead tomorrow s***. You guys gotta stop this stupid as Stan wars cause ya are looking dumb ass hell.

    • mkigz July 22, 2012

      Now what is the point of calling the commenters on here “negros” ? I dont know if you are black but if u arent u shouldnt be using it, and if u are u still shouldn’t be using it – That word was used against the black people during slavery by the white man, such terms shouldnt be used in 2012 – Also learn to write proper english, I had difficult reading your crap.

      • White girl mob July 22, 2012

        It’s not the slavery days anymore it’s 2012 it’s a f****** new day. All racists say n****, negros, in Oakland Latin people, Spanish people, mexicans, it’s used in hip hop every damn day by ya favorite damn rapprs s***. So ya need to stop getting some upset when other race says it.

        Kreayshawn says it on a daily when she hangs out in Oakland she does not use it in her songs but she says it around her people which are all different kinds of race.

        It’s like a big f****** rainbow out in Oakland n***** don’t care about anything out here. I’m not sure if Ya remember v nasty but she still saying it and ain’t nobody put hands on her yet cause they was all f****** talk no bite.

        So ya need to fall back cause Oakland is in the house!
        35th street

      • mkigz July 22, 2012

        Ok i understand that people say it and that the artists of today say it but my point is that it should be used PERIOD – The N word was used as an insult and still is today – Black artists should not endorse the word, it seriously just makes it acceptable for non-blacks to use it, that is my only point – are u black yourself?

      • mkigz July 22, 2012

        that it shouldnt be used*

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        Why are you arguing with this B****? Clearly she comes in every f****** thread trynna promote KREAY-YAWN.. LOL

      • mkigz July 22, 2012

        Because she needs to be corrected for her dumb-assness

    • Hayley July 22, 2012

      @ White girl mob, Enough. How dare you sit their and type your offensive statements disrespecting our culture when the very white girl you listen to embraces our culture by using our goddam music. Learn respect or shut the f*** up because we don’t need more ignorant cretins in the world.

  21. TheTruthHurts July 22, 2012

    If the butthurt Nicki stans don’t like it when people call her POP, or a SELLOUT, say her album FLOPPED or when people call a spade a spade, then they should pop off on HER! The consumers and general public, last I checked, reserved the right to voice their opinions and not dickride everything an artists does just because of who they are.

    Nicki CHOSE to dumb her rapping down. Nicki CHOSE to jump in the Rihanna/Katy Perry lane. Just like she chose to diss her fans not once, but TWICE because the numbers weren’t matching up with her newly acquired arrogant, “WINNING” ego. Deal with it. It’s nobody’s fault but her and her stans for allowing her to slide with mediocre material. The Barbz can feel how they wanna feel, and clearly alot of em are feeling some kinda of way considering it’s 13 million of em and only a fraction bothered to purchase her album. If she and her stans don’t like the negative press, then do two things: Either step it up and shut everyone down or keep getting that Nickelodeon money and shut it up.

    • Shad! July 22, 2012

      I think its fine for Nicki to make Pop music. As long as those songs are Successful!

      • FAF July 22, 2012

        Honey, I don’t even OWN a nicki album, my point is if it’s platinum , how does that define a flop?? y’all know what the f*** it is y’all want her down on your faves TRASH level!!! It wont work!! the soundscan and RIAA says otherwise, B****!!! I have statistics to prove it, all you’re speaking is an OPINION, which is as s***** as your asshole!!! I CANT WITH Y’ALL MAKING S*** UP! GO S*** ON RIHANNA (FLOP) BEYONCE (FLOP) but that s*** wont work with nicki b/c she’s clearly NOT she’s the one killing the tours, movies, and endorsements, and SUCCESS!!! And you will DEAL… Bye, now…

      • truth tea July 22, 2012

    NICKI MINAJ SLAYS!!!!!!

  24. Shad! July 22, 2012

    I don’t have a problem with Nicki Minaj Making pop music, as long as they are successful! I mean STARSHIPS DID A DAMN GOOD JOB – US 3X PLAT – CANADA 4X PLAT – UK 2PLAT – AUSTRALIA 6X PLAT . And now POUND THE ALARM is going to do just as well, as you can see. I just wish that Nicki Minaj would goo harder when she raps like she use too.

    Now as far as her album, IT IS NOT A FLOP!!!!! IT’S AT 700 UNITS IN THE US, GOLD IN AUSTRALIA, GOLD IN THE UK AND AT 400 UNITS IN CANADA! (AND THESE ARE UNITS SOLD). So don’t discredit Nicki until you do your research.

    • mkigz July 22, 2012

      PREACH SHAD!

    • TheTruthHurts July 22, 2012

      So you only support her pop music because it’s successful, not because you truly like it and feel it is a musical gem?
      Nobody is coming for her accomplishments as a rapper, because not ONE of her current rap songs/rap features has garnered any success this era. She’s gaining pop recognition and pop fans. Thats fine. But, when Nicki stans try to tear into others because they call her pop or a sellout, they sound ridiculous. Afterall, these so-called “haters” didnt decide what musical direction and demographic Nicki would cater to. Nicki did. So, they should take their issues up with Ms. Minaj. Either that or shut up whining about it and continue enjoying the success that SOMEONE ELSE gained by any means.

      • cool story July 22, 2012

        you sound so ignorant. I agree with @shad. He is being an objective fan. He is basically saying that as a fan, he does not mind her stepping out to do pop records if they are going to be successful, but he wants her to step up on her rapping. Look at the average songs in the top 5 on the billboard charts, do you see rap there? Maybe she wants that type of glory too. Why get mad at her for it?

      • Shad! July 22, 2012

        -Rap isn’t moving any units in this day & age! FACT..
        That is the reason why it is important to appeal to wide variety of people. Nicki has a WORLD WIDE fan base, and that was made obvious on her world tour/ album going #1 in different countries. So Nicki making a couple of really successful Pop songs (SUPERBASS/TURN ME ON/STARSHIPS/POUND THE ALARM), brings in a global audience.

        That being said – now that she has a global audience listening, she has a higher chance of selling her rap sound to them! So when people say Nicki is selling out i get that, but what i also get is the strategy behind her making those pop songs.Nicki is going to be around for a long time, only because she provides that variety.

      • TheTruthHurts July 22, 2012

        @Cool story
        Maybe I didn’t make myself clear. I said that Nicki STANS get mad when someone calls her POP or a SELLOUT, yet want to scream “WINNING” about her pop accomplishments. Either pick an emotion and ride with that or take it up with the ‘queen’. Like I stated before, Nicki chose what she wanted to do, not the “haters”. So, if she or her fans dont like the fact that people label her in such a way, then STEP IT UP OR SHUT IT UP. The public has a right to feel how they wanna feel, all that extra b******* from the Barbz changes no ones feelings about the situation. Btw…I never said it was anything wrong with doing different things like Pop. I said that the quality of her Pop music is subpar, hence the reason there are some people who don’t eat it up.

      • FAFRELOADED July 22, 2012

        No, its because people CANNOT ACCEPT HER SHINE! When Lil’ Kim was doing pop for her time (How Many licks, No matter what they say) Foxy was calling her pop & people said “THAT B**** HATING CUZ SHE NOT #1… Now that Nicki’s #1 The same Lil’ Kim fans are saying “She only #1 cuz she pop” NO, BOO… IMA NEED YALL TO PICK AN EMOTION.. Nicki gon be here…. LOL http://www.riaa.com/newsitem.php?content_selector=riaa-news-gold-and-platinum&news_month_filter=7&news_year_filter=2012&id=1CEE0D5D-39E6-020A-0151-0377FF2E3D51&searchterms=nicki%20minaj&terminclude=&termexact=

      • TheTruthHurts July 22, 2012

        @FAGRELOADED,
        Pick a casket and lay you’re burdons down, beceause for someone who claims to have never owned a Nicki cd, you sure seem very troubled by what anyone says. The fact that you CONSTANTLY bring up Kim’s name from the beginning, middle & end, when no one else did, lets me know ur a sloppy ass Kim hater riding Nicki’s success just to spite the imaginary “enemies” you battle in your head. Everyone that speaks out against homegirl isn’t a Kim or a Foxy fan. Idiot. Now, pick a valid reason why your MAD and ride with that.

  25. White girl mob July 22, 2012

    @mkigs NO I’m a white girl from Oakland city 35th street my home girls are kreayshawn & v nasty

    • mkigz July 22, 2012

      ok you shouldnt use the N word at all – your not black so it’s not cool to do so – Kreayshawn may use it but doesnt mean it”s right

  26. Michaelangelo July 22, 2012

    Nicki Threesome is NOT Hip Hop!!! Stop comparing her to other femcees!!

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      B**** CAN YOU GET N***** WHO WANNA HAVE A THREESOME WITH YOU??? U UGLY FOP??? NICKI WILL NEVER BE COMPARED TO THESE RAP DYKES OF THE INDUSTRY BECAUSE SHE ‘S ABOVE THEM ON ALL F****** LEVELS!! lil kim BUBBLE GUT C** LICKING ASS IS NOT A REAL MC!!! SUCKING D*** IS NOT LYRICAL! MISSY ELLIOT FAT ASS IS A PRODUCER FIRST!! THE OTHER B****** ARE NOT WORTH MENTIONING, OTHER THAN QUEEN LAURYN!!

    • cool story July 22, 2012

      what other femcees? I only hear her right now on commercial radio. I don’t hear Eve. Missy. or any of them for sure. That tells you now that people aren’t CHECKING for female MC’s like that and shes just trying to stay relevant

      Times have a changed.

  27. QueenSize July 22, 2012

    Listen up people! We all know the deal. Nicki sold out as soon as she signed the dotted line. But we are past that. She is here now. C*** riders like Sam and crew must compare her to female rappers because it actually does make nicki look better as an artist. If she was compared to the pop chicks she would be a Muthafuckin flop. They know it, Nicki knows it, I know it, and now you know.

    • cool story July 22, 2012

      So being successful is considered sold out. I would sell out everytime.

      • FAFRELOADED July 22, 2012

        Girl, let these haters talk…..

      • Cassie July 22, 2012

        @ cool story, Being successful is not just about popularity, chart positions, tons of money, or high albums sales. It’s also about talent/ skills, creativity, and quality which is something Nicki has been lacking for quite some time therefore she should not be considered truly successful.

  28. F MISHA B-ULLY HAHAHA July 22, 2012

    How can you call Nick a rapper Chris Brown last two album was more hip hop the his 1st two albums ever was…

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      & they flopped.. obz he should go back to his OLD formula… LOL smh smh smh ROFL NIcki pop still SHITS on these h***.. so regardless of what you say BILLBOARD PLAQUES say RAP ! DISMISSED…..

      • TheTruthHurts July 22, 2012

        F.A.M.E got certified platinum and still hasn’t SOLD a million copies…much like Nicki and PFRR. So, by that logic, Nicki flopped as well.

    • cool story July 22, 2012

      Damn I have heard everything from Rihanna, to beyonce, to mariah carey and now Chris Brown. WTF. none of them have anything to do with this thread.

      Whose next, garth Brookes?

      Speaking of Chris, do you hold him to the same standard because he does pop music too, terrible pop music.

      Rihanna was never really respected on the rnb front so she turned to pop music and never looked back.

      Some of you are hypocrites and delusional.

  29. FAF July 22, 2012

    Yet again, another f****** slayage accomplished… you will NOT attempt it on Ms. Minaj’s time! you are tired, through & f****** delayed! if you have a problem w/ TGJ posting favorable opinions, You should stick to the outskirts,,, LOL

  30. Red July 22, 2012

    She’s not a rapper. She’s NOT at 600k copies in the US. She’s not even at 580k sold yet so I don’t know how it was certified platinum. nobody is buying that crap. She said that she is expecting it to go 5x platinum in the US. ROFL. It won’t be on the charts past December. Shes a pop artist that calls herself a rapper when we all know the truth. Sell out. She will be done by her 3rd album. And to the F** hopping on everybody’s comment: We dont like her. DEAL WITH IT. Youre pressed and bothered Other wise I wouldn’t see your name after everyone who doesn’t share your opinion of Homie the Clown. Have a seat. Your obsessive compulsive disorder is showing.

    • FAF July 22, 2012

      u know an AWFUL LOT ABOUT HER… KEEP PROMOTING.. U LIKE THESE NUTS IN YOUR MOUTH U SUBLIMINAL D*** C***???? ROFL I WILL KEEP DRAGGING YOU FROM THE GAPING HOLE IN YOUR CRANIUM FROM THIS SKULLDRAGGING…

      • FAFRELOADED July 22, 2012

        I’M SO F****** HURT & BOTHERED BY U NOT LIKING SOME B**** THAT DONT GIVE A F*** ABOUT U!!! ;;;((((LOL!! AWWW I’M CRYING!! NO F***** I JUST DONT LIKE LIES.. & WHETHER ITS ON THE CHART PAST DECEMBER OR NOT IT WILL CONQUER AND OUTLAST ANY OF THE FLOPS YOU PRAISE.. NOW WHERES YOUR ALBUM????

  31. Dollar$ign$kills July 22, 2012

    Lmao she stays flopping. 3 out for of the singles flopped. Has yet to selln580k in the U.S despite Starships selliing over 4million. Has yet to reach 1million world wide. Took her until album to to launch a world tour even though GaGa, Ke$ha, and Katy did after album one. And still no #1 single. How tragic

      • Dollar$ign$kills July 22, 2012

        Ke$ha is in the studio hun cause unlike your plastic fav she can take time on her music knowing she wont be forgotten. Ke$ha launched a sold out world wide tour after her debut album. It took T***** Garbaj two years to get there. Lmao the Sleazy remix charted higher than most songs off RR and it wasn’t even promoted or released to radio. Don’t try boo, Nicki can’t even come for Jessie J’s weave. Get at me when Nicki lands at #1 on the Hot 100 or when PFRR sells over a million world wide lmfao

      • Dollar$ign$kills July 22, 2012

        Lma b**** bye. Reply to me when Nicki holds #1 for 9 weeks straight like Ke$ha did with Tik Tok, debuts at #1 like Ke$ha did with We R Who We R, has an album spawn all top 10 singles, or has a single sell over 9million world wide. Hell, call me when Nicki even reaches #1, pathetic b**** struggles for top 10 hits. Fall back. Ke$ha slays Nicki in every department

  32. edubb July 22, 2012

    AGAIN NICKI MINAJ FLOPPED BECAUSE:
    1. YM/CMB/UMG OVERSHIPPED HER 2ND SINGLE, THINKING IT WOULD DO DRAKE/WAYNE NUMBERS
    2.PF SOLD 3MILLION WW, NOT SHIPPED… SOLD!, PF:RR STILL ISN’T 1MILLION SOLD, BUT IS OVER 1MILLION SHIPPED… THAT’S NOT GOOD NUMBERS AT ALL.
    3. NICKI IS DOMINATING THE SINGLES SALES… BUT THE ALBUM SALES NEEDS TO IMPROVE OR UMG WILL LOSE MONEY.
    4 AGAIN, THE RIAA TABULATE SHIPMENTS TO STORES, SOUNDSCAN USES THE POINT OF SYSTEM( RECEIPTS), SO SC HAS THE REAL SALE RECEIPTS.

  33. RDK July 22, 2012

    congratulations nicki minaj.

  34. Miles July 22, 2012

    Umm who gives a f*** about the UK charts??? like really!?!

    • Cassie July 22, 2012

      I know right, it’s completely irrelevant especially since she’s not doing well in her own damn country; which explains why TGJ always has to bring up these irrelevant charts because they have nothing else to talk about to make her look good.

  35. edubb July 22, 2012

    Fafreloaded
    SOUNDSCAN IS USED BY BILLBOARD TO TALLY TOTAL ALBUM SALES THROUGH THE POS SYSTEM IN REGISTERS (INTERNET + CASH REGISTER =RECEIPTS). RIAA CERTIFIES BASED ON SHIPMENTS, SAY YOU SHIP 1 MILLION COPIES TO BEST BUY, TARGET CUZ OF THE MASS MARKETING OF A CD, THE STORE THROUGH HYPE GAMBLED, & BOUGHT A LOAD OF CDS, IN HOPES THAT THE CUSTOMER BUYS THEM… OBVIOUSLY THE MASSES ISN’T BUYING SO THE STORE LOSES $, CUZ THERE’S STILL 75% OF THIER INVESTMENT STILL ON THE SHELF, SO THEY CAN SHIP BACK CDS TO UMG, & UMG WILL LOSE $, ECONOMICS… SOMETHING TGJ KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT.UMG HAS TO RECOUP THIER MONEY BY ANY MEANS!

    • FAFRELOADED July 22, 2012

      THE PLAQUE IS NOT GIVEN BY SOUNDSCAN, ITS GIVEN BY RIAA… SO JUST LIKE PEOPLE LOVE TO USE THE EXCUSE “ITS NOT REALLY PLATINUM” THE SAME CAN BE SAID FOR ALL ARTISTS SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME.. SO IS OUTKAST NOT REALLY DIAMOND WITH THE LOVE BELOW BECAUSE IT WAS TALLIED SHIPMENTS INSTEAD OF SALES???? I THINK NOT…… FACT IS, THERE STILL WAS A DEMAND FOR PF:RR WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT…..

      • FAFRELOADED July 22, 2012

        & NIELSEN SOUNDSCAN CANNOT COUNT ITUNES…… WE’RE IN A DIGITAL MEDIA AGE….THAT’S WHY ITS IRRELEVANT…

  36. Jessie July 22, 2012

    Um this is great and all but why don’t you talk about something relevant because the U.K. charts aren’t important.

  37. Marchal Zolanski July 22, 2012

    There are so many haters! If Nicki was a “flop” why is she the most successful female rapper in the Game? Don’t have an answer? I though so…..

    #TeamMinaj

    • nickiminaj July 23, 2012

      u right let them hate #teamminaj all day h***

    • Jessie July 23, 2012

      -_- Idiot, the more you bring Lil Kim and her fans the more you help make them look good and stay relevant.

  40. Trini_Minaj July 23, 2012

    Here’s what i don’t egt with u hating ass b******, Nicki been singing singing since her coem up days. Listent o Playtime Is Over mixtape and u will hear her singing a lot on it. So in definition, she didnt switch things up at all, she been doing it. Plus, since when is singing on a hip track being pop? Because it has a pop beat? Or because its just damn catchy? What would you call some of missy’s hits then like ‘get ur Freak on’ or ‘The rain’? Pop? It has a pop beat but she raps in it don’t she?
    You haters need to realize that no matter how many times u call Nicki pop, we don’t give a s***. Yes she’s hip hop, and yes she’s pop and yess we love ALL her music. Get it? ALLL her music!

  41. msteefromdc July 25, 2012

    THIS IS WHAT I DONT UNDERSTAND, Y IS THIS B**** ON EVERY STORY YALL POST? R YALL ON YM PAYROLL OR SOMETHING? CUZ THE S*** YALL POST IS NOT EXCITING BY NO MEANS, BUT EVERYDAY TGJ FINDS SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THIS GARBAGE ASS POP STAR.

  42. Roman October 18, 2012

    Nicki Minaj is in her own lane. Let’s stop with the comparisons. She’s a new artist that’s getting alot of attention. She’s experimenting with her music and if you don’t like her music, don’t buy or listen to it. Plain and simple. If you guys don’t like Nicki Minaj, stop commenting on her! Why waste your time? Listen to music that you like! It’s stupid how people waste their time talking about her if they don’t like her. Let the legends be legends because we all know they can’t be touched so let her do her thing. Obviously she’s doing something right.
