Nicki Minaj Dominates UK Charts Ahead Of Arena Tour

Published: Saturday 20th Oct 2012 by David

Perhaps in response to her rising profile in the country, Nicki Minaj is fast becoming one of a few US acts to enjoy impressive chart runs in the United Kingdom.

Holding the record for being the only Female Rapper to score a #1 LP in the chart’s 43 year history, Minaj continues to soar on a number of British tallies this week, before the launch of her sold out Arena tour.

Details below…

As it stands, Nicki is the only artist on the single’s chart to enjoy three or more songs in the Top 50, with ‘Pound The Alarm‘ in at #49, ‘Va Va Voom’ at #20 and ‘Starships’ at #37- rising 13 spots since last week.

This, as ‘Voom’ sits pretty at #5 on an R&B front, two spots above ‘Starships’ at which holds court #7, helped in part by her sophomore LP’s (‘Roman Reloaded’) steady run on the album chart.

A run, which has never seen it leave the Top 50 since its release 28 weeks ago.

The project, which was recently certified Platinum in the US, is set to rise even further on British shores next week- following the launch of the star’s British Arena tour in Nottingham tomorrow.

With a capacity of 10,000, the city’s Capital FM  arena will house the Rapper’s stage show, featuring performances by ‘Home Run‘ starlet Misha B and ‘Rack City’ MC Tyga on it’s Europe/Oceania leg .

    Good for her, but was this article really needed?

    • RomansAuPair October 20, 2012

      The fact that you commented is enough to answer your question.

  2. the real xoxo October 20, 2012

    how can you “dominate” a chart when none of your songs are in the top 10?

    • KillerBarb October 20, 2012

      You clearly didn’t read the article sis. She has two top ten R&B singles and three or more in the Top 50. Read b**** READ!

      • the real xoxo October 20, 2012

        i know, but thats nothing to brag about, especially when none of the songs had any r&b elements.

      • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

        B**** on whose r&b chart?? Not the US!! Look h**, dont come on this mutha fucka tryna rep for that B**** cause u and yo funky mammy will get the s*** smacked outta yall! Whores!

    • RomansAuPair October 20, 2012

      But Rihanna’s Diamonds is number on that R&B chart though. What do you have to say about that?

    • b****** October 20, 2012

      well shes the only female rapper that has ever done it 😉

      • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

        Bathe b****

  3. Lashan October 20, 2012

    I think Dominates may have been the wrong word to use in the post title….

  4. MinajMania October 20, 2012

    YASSS THE QUEEN.
    Dominates is the PERFECT title because she is the most prolific. Which other singer you know has as many songs in the top 40 this week. she got two in the r&b and three in official top 40, so why you so pressed? why you so mad/
    She’s winning. OWN IT!

    • HowManyLicks October 20, 2012

      • FAF October 20, 2012

  6. Char October 20, 2012

    I just can’t at Starships being on the R&B chart..

    • KillerBarb October 20, 2012

      I can’t at Rihanna being number one that same chart.

      • FAF October 20, 2012

        THANK U!!!!!! RISHITTA FANS ARE RETARDED 🙂

  7. truth tea (take a sip) October 20, 2012

    there are over 1,000,000 people in the US who bought Pink Friday but never bought roman reloaded lol.
    remember when she said RR will outsell pink friday?

    • FAF October 20, 2012

      & It will you simple minded F***

      “when i re-up on reloaded Ima hurt them bad”

      #OOP she planned Re-up before reloaded hun

      LISTEN TO THE QUEEN! SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE DOING!

      • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

        B****

  8. Missy, Kim And Eve Will Slay Nicki’s Sales October 20, 2012

    When Missy, Eve and Kim get here it’ll be a wrap for this blow up doll.

    As far as I’m concerned if it ain’t about the hood it just ain’t real. Nicki makes music for brain dead dolls who live nice lives, but what about the underachievers in the hood? Why can’t she make music for the guys in the hood with no ambitions outside of the hood and who wanna stay in the hood for the rest of their lives?
    This is why I love Kim, she doesn’t change, she stays gully all day everyday.

    • Petre October 20, 2012

      Why should it take 3 legendary artists to “slay” 1 newbie artist’s sales?? I hate how people use Missy, Eve and Kim’s names to make such insulting comments.

      • KingBey October 20, 2012

        She’s been out For years, it took her 6 years to blow up.

      • FAF October 20, 2012

        DEAD @Petre

        b’c they wont!!!!

        EVE FLOPPED

        MISSY FLOPPED

        KIM FLOPPED

        If anything this “BLOWUP DOLL” took they spot

        THEY MAD 🙂

      • Petre October 20, 2012

        lol @FAF
        hmm I’m sure Missy has an ace up her sleeve duno bout Eve or Kim though as I’m not super fans of them, but Missy ALWAYS delivers, be it songs, music videos you name it

      • b****** October 20, 2012

        yes missy i believe but not kim she is washed supposly she sold 110,000 mixtapes so she should stick to selling mixtapes on paypal

      • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

        @b******, h** go slit yo wrists

      • Trev October 20, 2012

        Lil Kim did not sell no 110,000 mixtapes in 28 hours like she claimed…she is a lying trick…Paypal made a statement saying there wasn’t even anyway of knowing that number…also when someone looked up how many times the mixtape link was clicked it said 12,000…so out of that 12,000 how many do you think actually bought it?….and do you really think Lil Kim packed 110,000 through postal mail??? byeeee to anyone that’s dumb or delusional enough to believe that

        also…Missy is not a flop at all, she’s always had a song on the radio whether she is an artist or producer…Eve is not a flop overall, she’s been flopping lately but overall she’s not and she has broken records for female rappers

        BUT Nicki Minaj is Queen…and it only took her two mainstream years…the only reason anyone is talking about a female rapper past, present, or future is solely because of the great Nicki Minaj

      • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

        @trev…b**** stfu and suck a d***. NoBody tryna read that s***, b****

    • GivingAwayFreeChairs _/_/_/ October 21, 2012

      You can’t be serious. She left the hood, I left the hood, and there are many other non delusional individuals leaving the hood as well because there’s nothing there. Your post made the smallest amount of sense and because of that I’ve come to the conclusion that you need a seat. Here _/

      – HAVE A BLESED DAY HOMMIE.

  9. NavyHeart October 20, 2012

    I hate to hate to gloat, but this proves that Nicki is the only female rapper whose fans actually buy her music.

    Y’all say you love the old girls but do you support their music when they release it? No you don’t. That then makes their labels scared to push them so they remain flops.
    Don’t be mad Nicki stans put their money where their mouths are

    • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

  12. Rihanna Smashed Da Homie October 20, 2012

    So sad, Nicki is slaying the Pop and the RAP girls. Oh and to those saying Nicki aint sold a mill in the US yet, Rihanna only sold a mill with Talk That Talk two weeks ago and that album came out before Reloaded, so what’s REALLY good?

    • FAF October 20, 2012

  13. KingBey October 20, 2012

    Nicki has some retarded ass stans calling her the Queen, only contributing to her Big ass head. The queen of what might i ask?

    • Bobbie October 20, 2012

      She is the queen of charts all around the world you pressed b****, she may not have a #1 single but she has 3 or more songs on the chart at the same damn time that have been their longer then 28 weeks. you’re just mad that your favs never accomplished this first.

      • FAF October 20, 2012

        OK?? AND BEYAWNCE AINT NOBODY KING

        U MAD???? 🙂

        U AINT PRESSED IZ YUH!?

      • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

        ONLY THING THAT NEEDS PRESSIN IS U AND FAF WRINKLE P******!!

      • KingBey October 21, 2012

        Lmao @FAF & @Bobbie
        B****, Beyonce is the f****** Queen, Nicki’s dominating charts around the world huh? B**** Where’s that flop ass album. Beyonce Didn’t Promote 4 and sold more In a shorter amount of time. Beyonce doesn’t need gimmicks Like Floppy Minaj. B****, If Nicki is dominating charts, Why Hasn’t she gotten a solo number one? And don’t come with that she’s only been around three years s***. Beyonce Did it with her FIRST 2 Solo singles, But im pressed? F****** tell me when nicki sells over 1.5 Million WW.So b****, Icki Garbaj is not a f****** Queen, More Like a Stain, And She Will Never Have A 15 Year Long Career like the REAL Queen. Even Rihanna’s Had A 7 Year Long Career, Nicki Could Never. Rihanna Would Be Queen Before Nicki.

  14. TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! October 20, 2012

    Taylor’s single is number 7 in the charts.. higher then any of Nicki’s

  15. Tim October 20, 2012

    I reallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, just wish that Nicki would goo back to her NY roots & give the underground world a classic album. Nicki is capable of delivering pure hard lyricism, but but her satanic fans (BARBZ) want pop music. WTF? Don’t get me wrong I understand that Nicki is growing & evolving which she should be doing, but Pop music isn’t what’s going to make her a legend Hip-hop is!
    I can’t say I’m a big fan of Nicki’s the way I was 2 years ago, but I will always salute her accomplishments/endorsements!

    • Bobbie October 20, 2012

      no one that buys music is checking for that hood s***. she left that behind in the ghetto where it needs to stay.

      • phone home October 20, 2012

        where did he say hood s***. He said Hip hop roots. Learn to read. Nicki IS HIP HOP. That’s what will make her legendary. Pop is so saturated. Female rappers are few and far between. I believe he is very right.

      • b****** October 20, 2012

        hip pop doesnt sale look at Nas awesome album and its not even gold

      • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

      “Don’t get me wrong I understand that Nicki is growing & evolving which she should be doing, but Pop music isn’t what’s going to make her a legend Hip-hop is!”

      Ladies and Gentlemen, this.is.the.truth!!!!

      As a Nicki fan, it does me proud to see other sane Nicki fans like @Tim. I have faith that Nicki will one day release a classic hip hop album. It is in her. 🙂

      • truth(chile i will SL-LAP the DOG S*** out a B**** ASS nicki stan) October 20, 2012

        Go get gangbanged by yo daddy and uncles u fuckn f**!! This tacky b**** is a flop…like yo momma p**** h**…look what came outta it…YOU!! U b****

  16. Bobbie October 20, 2012

    Nicki is doing great things world wide. i don’t recall any of these other female rappers doing arena tours,or coming in a number 8 on forbes list of Hip Hop cash kings. so that’s why these bum b****** mad.

    She is DONE!

    This is STRUGGLING for 700k in the US, she is fading 😕

    Her singles have FLOPPED(get ready to add ‘The Boys” to the list as well”) 😉

    • phone home October 20, 2012

      I don’t see why she or her team don’t see this.

      The endorsements came from her mixtape and pink fridays success. Nothing was sparked from roman reloaded. well maybe the UK push but Pink friday’s success generated most of her success, endorsements, tours, talk show invites, cross over appeal. To me the roman reloaded just makes her look more silly and gain more non supporters.

    • b****** October 20, 2012

      she is platinum
      starships is 3 times platinum
      beez in the trap gold and pound the alarm platinum
