UK Charts : Nicki Minaj Enjoys Sales Boost / Drops Ball With ‘Pound The Alarm’

As Pop’s fastest rising Rapper, Nicki Minaj‘s ascent on many a international chart has been astounding to say the very least.

Surpassing the 1 million copies sold worldwide mark with her latest LP ‘Roman Reloaded‘ this week, today has also seen the Rapper’s star rise on a UK front by way of her single ‘Starships‘ and both of her studio albums.

Nicki’s chart check below…

Rising one spot in the country’s Urban chart, ‘Starships’ now resides at #3 an impressive 24 weeks after its initial launch.

Meanwhile, her 5x Platinum single  ‘Super Bass’ remains on the chart’s Top 100 in its 66th week, extending her lead as the only Female Rapper to enjoy a chart run as long as her own since- surpassing prior efforts made by Missy Elliott.

On an LP front, ‘Roman Reloaded‘ and 2010’s ‘Pink Friday’ both enjoy a sales bump, with ‘Reloaded’ climbing three spots to #24 and ‘Friday’ leaping two spots since last week- joining Rihanna and Adele as one of the only artist in this week’s tally to have two LPs in the Top 100.

However, in what is a testament to her Young Money’s inability to handle singles, her dance smash ‘Pound The Alarm‘ has fallen out of the Top Ten one week after entering it, despite its record breaking ascent on the tally last month.

An ascent, which saw it rise 118 spots in the space of two weeks.

Perhaps in response to the delay in the launch of its video, here’s hoping this week sees its long awaited release.

For, if delayed any further, Minaj may miss out on enjoying a UK #1 single for the third time in two years.

    Nicki is a flop and lets not pretend that PTA is really going to go anywhere or help her dispute the claims that she is nothing more than a plastic record label puppet which is actually the truth.

    • FAFRELOADED July 29, 2012

      God damn, f**.. first comment. NICKI GOT U PRESSED! DEAL!!!

      • Honestly Speaking July 29, 2012

        B****, you don’t know me at all to be calling me names such as the one used above. Get a life and remove yourself from Onika’s ass. Get some fresh air and step AWAY from the keyboard. The way you defend this hooker, you would think that she has you on her payroll. Please.

      • FAFRELOADED July 29, 2012

        Still here, ugly?? Ima keep dragging you & I know you a F*** cuz u like to come for Females… STAY PRESSED

      • Honestly Speaking July 29, 2012

        B****, who are you dragging exactly? you’re always talking s*** in Nicki posts but yet your broke ass can’t even afford to contribute to her sales figures. Why don’t you come back after you graduate middle school and move out of your parent’s basement? get a job b**** and help her album and PTA stop flopping. Do that first before you start talking you broke ass ignorant b****.

      • FAFRELOADED July 29, 2012

  2. Benron (F*** you h**) July 29, 2012

    It took her this long to sell 1 million worldwide with a tour. Rih was touring for A DIFFERENT ALBUM and iit only still took her 3 weeks. Poor Nicki, Flop the Alarm wont enter the hot 100, her album isnt doing anything major and nobody cares about her sellout ass D;

    • FAFRELOADED July 29, 2012

      f*** its platinum in the U.S.

      • truth(slayer of that B**** fafreloaded) July 29, 2012

      • LTM July 29, 2012

        Your point? It has barley passed 600k in the US. Certifications are irrelevant if they don’t have the sales to back it

    • beyonce Manager July 29, 2012

      • LilKimsNose July 29, 2012

        I’m so here for That Grape Juice stanning for Nick. SO here for it!

  4. BEYONCE’S WEAVE July 29, 2012

    Samantha, you forgot to mention that 4closure has dropped out of the UK Top 100. That’s right, the BeeHive has been flooded by the Navy in the UK. Maybe BeYAWNce should announce another pregnancy to get it at #99 but I doubt that’ll help.

    In more related news, congratulations to both Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, especially Rihanna for getting her album back into the top 10 despite Samantha’s hating efforts. Good things happen to good people, go Riri and snatch.


      the u.k is 2nd to usa so i don’t think we are worry about that.

      • Benron (F*** you h**) July 29, 2012

        Your correct, and 4seen 4ever 4lopping fell offf that chart MONTHS ago/

    • FAFRELOADED July 29, 2012

      • MARLEYMAR July 29, 2012

        I agree, TGJ is pressed to post a status every single time she shifts ten copies. Get off her nuts already.

      • Joey Blanco July 29, 2012

        FAGRELOADED no I am just tired of seeing a Nicki post every five seconds, it gets old…”Nicki moves up one spot on the UK charts, Nicki sits at number 171 moving up ten spots from last week on the UK charts” no one cares

        @ NickiSaidDis, And what the f*** did Kim have to do with this…. Exactly you like many other Nicki fans are obviously secretly Lil Kim fans since you can’t seem to keep her name or any info on her out your damn crusty big mouths,

      • Roman ReFLOPPED July 30, 2012

        So, if people aren’t here for Nicki they MUST be here for Kim? Where’s the logic, f*****?

    • IM July 29, 2012

      your name alone makes your comment void we know who you are,if it was a certain other female getting mad press i am sure that your bias @ss wouldn’t have left that comment,anyways it is what it is you are just doing what you supposed to the duty of a stan.

      • truth(best comments deze u b****) July 29, 2012

      RICH AND BLACK unline Rihanna? Rihanna has made over 100 million dollars in her career and that yatch costs more than you will make in the next 10 years so you will deal.

      • RICHANDBLACK11(UNLIKE RIHANNA) July 29, 2012

        First off you don’t know who I am nor do you know what family I come from. PS if she have made over 100m, why is it that she is only worth 72….HANG IT UP (FLATSCREEN)

        Its Yacht not yatch, am my family owns two, while riri is renting the one she is on, she doesn’t have the COINS to buy a yacht.

  8. beyonce Manager July 29, 2012

    nicki did the same sh-t with starship w-tf she waiting on strike when the iron is hot,both was doing so well without the video but if you are going to do a video do it quick so it can support an already good single that is doing well.

    • Honestly Speaking July 29, 2012

      It’s very immature. I voiced my opinion for Nicki and her falling-off-a-cliff sales and this “thing” has to come and start talking reckless. I don’t think this person is over the age of twelve though so whatever.

  15. truth July 29, 2012

    Wow, that’s a big thing for someone like Nicki Minaj to accomplish. I think people forget that Nicki has only been MAINSTREAM for (2) two years, and with two albums she’s set/broke records. Is her album selling LEFT & RIGHT no it isn’t, but it’s selling SO NO HATE! You name (1) one artist that has been for the amount of time Nicki has, and has accomplished what she has?
    Secondly, Nicki’s pop music if doing really well for her WORLD WIDE!
    POUND THE ALARM was already climbing up the charts before it’s official release, so it couldn’t be a flop! Give Nicki credit when it’s due, she is actually out in the world grinding & selling records. So she gets props from me!

    Am i her biggest fan (BARB)? -NO
    Can Nicki Minaj do better, than what she’s doing? -YES
    Do i agree with everything she puts out ? -NO
    Is her image too much sometimes? -YES
    Are all of Nicki Minaj’s song’s Hip-Hop? -NO
    Is Nicki Minaj successful at what she does? -YES
    Does Nicki Minaj have potential to be legendary? -YES

    • IM July 29, 2012

      i agree with you 100% whoever you are on the other hand there is a mad ignorant person running around the net on most blogs that i know of,spreading mad negativity about nicki minaj and on others with the same name truth,making you look bad.

    • LTM July 29, 2012

      I can name one artist who has been mainstream for two years with more success: Ke$ha.

    • Cassie July 30, 2012

      @ Truth, I’m not trying to discredit Nick’s success but you have to realize that what she’s doing is not impressive in the least bit because she’s been putting music out in a time period where Rap is very Mainstream and with virtually no competition from other females. Many female rappers prior to her were still very successful even when they put out music where Rap was not mainstream and with a lot of competition which ultimately explains why it took them years to gain a lot of the success she has now which only took her as few as 2 years.

      • Truth July 30, 2012

  18. john July 29, 2012

    yalk really need to learn the diffrence between riaa and soundscan. riaa is based on shipment. soundscan is based on actual alumb sold. riaa gave it a platium certification due to ymcmb shipping a million copies. soundscan gave it a gold certification due to it selling 500,000 or 600,0000 copies. record labels uses ths riaa certification to big their artist up and make people think. they bigger then what they actually is. since most people dont know the diffrence between them. why do you think nicki said we shippin platium. these chicks shippin would. by anywho Isiah Classi Food is available on kindle.

  19. Shedding Light July 29, 2012

    I’m just laughing because everytime someone says something positive about Nicki, Truth ALWAYS replies “b****!” Not hating, just think it’s funny. 😛

    • Truth July 30, 2012

      Lol I caint stand that fake h** or anyone that liked her lol

  20. LTM July 29, 2012

    She’s just now reaching 1million? How as that even remotely praisably? That albums been out for awhile and she’s been on tour too. There is nothing impressive about her numbers. She is a flop who is fading fast

  21. Jer July 29, 2012

    Oh suddenly when someone misses getting a #1 single suddenly it was so important. But when someone gets a #1 single ohhh its no #1 album. Gtfo Samantha

  22. the real xoxo July 30, 2012

    this single will slay (by nicki standards)
    but watch how she will call herself a “hip hop artist” as soon as anyone calls her out on her sellout bubblegum pop b*******.
    team minaj dont you see? she is only achieving success with safe, chart-friendly music, not real hip hop.
    its a shame that people on TGJ care more about chart positions and sales rather than the quality of the music itself.

  23. ImMadAsHell July 30, 2012

    People are forgetting that back in the days when females had competition they could bring out two or three singles to go platinum. The record compnay would make their money back.

    Nicki got all these singles coming out, this is still causing her record company money, to promote & the videos, That means money still coming from her record company pockets. Her next cd is going to take forever to come out.

  24. QueenSize July 30, 2012

    This blog loves to kiss Nicki Minaj’s fake ass. I’ve never seen anything like it. Are you guys her relatives? Is this SB’s blogspot. Y’all really big this broad up. Talking worldwide sales. Aren’t we in America? The place where she sold gold.

  25. denis tanks August 3, 2012

    i swear al the nickie minaj articels have the most comments
