Thus far, Minaj’s ‘Starhships’ has sold 678,000 copies in the UK.
Quite interestingly, a certain Rihanna is yet to make the list despite the success of the smash hit single ‘Where Have You Been’ and her Coldplay duet ‘Princess Of China‘.
However, with 5 months to go until the year’s end, it will be interesting to see how this list changes- especially with Minaj’s ‘Pound The Alarm‘ and Ora’s second UK single set to follow in their predecessor’s suit.
