Chart Check: Nicki Minaj Continues UK Chart Reign / Mariah Carey Eyes Fresh Chart Glory

Published: Wednesday 8th May 2013 by David

They're the First Ladies of 'American Idol'- however, when they're not guiding this year's contestants to superstardom Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey continue to reach new heights in their own rights…via many a global chart.

Meet us below for more details!

After shifting 1.6 million units worldwide and pushing her overall album sales well over the 5 million unit mark, this week saw Minaj's 'Roman Reloaded' enjoy its latest British sales spike- rising an impressive 55 spots on its albums tally in the last week.

Continuing its lead as the highest selling Rap album in the nation between the 2012/2013 period- the project also saw its lead single 'Starships' spend its 64th week on the Urban Top 40-  while latest effort 'High School' holds the #15 spot, extending her run as the only Rapper in UK chart history to have a Urban Top 40 in the nation for every week in the space of twelve months.

Meanwhile, 'Prisoner Of Love' icon Mariah Carey gears up for a fruitful chart week today- now that it has emerged her new single 'Beautiful' is on course to move 100,000 units, helped in part by favorable rotation on US radio and the momentum it garnered upon release.

Set to soar even further once its physical/television promotion kicks on, the song's success also comes courtesy of Grammy winning R&B King Miguel– whose winning numbers with Mariah follow the commercial heights scored by his 'Art Dealer Chic' release 'Adorn', which peaked at #1 on the US R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart.

In other R&B news, fans of 'Standing On The Sun' singer Beyonce will pleased to learn of her new song 'Rise Up'– recorded in support of new movie 'Epic',while fans of Roc Nation's Elijah Blake can look forward to the official release of his debut single 'XOX' in the coming weeks!

Juicy Fact: In the first month of its release, Minaj's 'Pink Friday' sold a total of 1,035,000 units in the US alone and, now enjoys sales of over 3.8 million units worldwide!

        It’s not the Jlo stans, their asses got more visitors this month and that’s why the page wouldn’t load last week. I saw Sam say it on twitter.

  3. Monstarebel May 8, 2013

    Roman Reloaded only did 1.6 with a re release meaning the other 3.4 came from the first album smh thats a big difference & i dont like that 🙁 Where did nicki go wrong? Stupid h**? or Starships? Not enough promo?

    • JARED (WHITE DUDE) May 8, 2013

      Babe, I’m sorry to say this, but…

      She confused her audiences by doing Pop music, SO OVERTLY.

      Her core, Hip-Hop fans were at a disadvantage and everybody knows that pubescents DO NOT purchase albums, therefore – EVERYTHING FAILED.

      There was no musical or artistic balance. It all seemed to rushed as opposed to her debut era.

      • Monstarebel May 8, 2013

        Yeah i agree she turned alot of her fans off last year with not performing at summer jam cussing the fans out and deleting her Twitter releasing loads of pop music but i feel like its still hope for her cause even tho shes not doing as good as before she’s still that number 1 b**** in the rap game no one has yet to knock her off her throne… So hopefully with album number 3 she’ll re gain her hardcore fan base we need that monsta nicki back

    • XtinaaLovee May 8, 2013

      She lost me at STUPID H**!

      • truth(i will draaag the F*** outta icki and her stans) May 8, 2013

        Ciara’s lead single “Body Party” is Top 40 on the Hot 100 and Top 10 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Charts.

        Ciara is not a flop, she is relevant again.

    • RihannasYeastInfection May 8, 2013

      Ciara is Queen of Flip Flops with Socks.

      H**

  7. Nichole May 8, 2013

    Mariah and Miguel bought REAL quality music back to top 40 radio, which is filled with 99% generic garbage.

    Justin who? Great job!

  8. lotus May 8, 2013

    Siiiiiing Christina! Listen now to the beautiful and powerful collaboration between Mexican singer Alejandro Fernandez and pop diva Christina Aguilera, “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti”. The song is a famous classic in Spanish music released and sung originally by Spain-born singer Miguel Gallardo in 1975. “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti” has been covered throughout all these years by many top Latin stars. Alejandro and Christina’s version will be used as the theme song for the upcoming Televisa televonela “La Tempestad”.

    Boy, this is EPIC. Christina’s voice sounds sooooooo good. Alejandro’s a marvellous vocalist and probably he ‘connects’ better with the lyrics ’cause he actually understands what he’s singing (lol), but it’s undeniable the ‘thunder’ is stolen here by Ms Aguilera. Because: 1) Everybody was anticipating this duet for HER ever since the news first broke, 2) She’s more famous than Alejandro, and 3) Everytime we hear this we’ll remember how bad we want Christina to release a new full-length Spanish album ASAP. In any case, I just can’t at the SLAYAGE Aggie does vocally in “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti”. Ridiculous! I really, really, really hope we get to see Alejandro and Christina singing their cover live at some television show or awards show in a not-so-distant future.

  15. Cassie Lover May 8, 2013

    Mariah who?

  16. JOHNVIDAL May 8, 2013

    What a random post! lol It doesn´t make sense at all…
    About Mariah: yes of course it´s amazing and we are all focusong on her. But remember this is such a big step in the right direction for Miguel. I´ve been loving him for a few months and he had the critical acclaim, but let´s be honest he still didn´t have the commercial appeal (he´s over 300,000 copies sold from his album in the USA but nothing else). This is a superhit in which he is very present and none of his songs did this well to date. Congrats to him. He deserves more and more attention

    • Unbiased h** May 8, 2013

      All these likes tho….

      • JOHNVIDAL May 8, 2013

        LOL I know

    • RihannasYeastInfection May 8, 2013

      I agree… This song opened a new platform for him. So glad Mariah picked him.

    J.h** Stan were are YOU????? COME OUT OF HIDING WHORES!!!

  21. Lovebird May 8, 2013

    Congrats to both ladies, Nicki is successful and what she does and so is Marian, they are both different artists winning in their own way. Black people have a bad tendency of pinning other black artists against each other, I think we should respect them for their various successes. Congratulations to both and good luck.

    is there a bug on this site,how the h-ll peeps getting so much thumb up and downs…sam fix this asap.

  23. Behind these hazel eyes May 8, 2013

    Nicki switched her style up too quick. She built her core fanbase off of HIP HOP mixtapes & features. Nicki was always fun & quirky, but she was raw at the same time. She went straight pop/techno and the urban community abandoned her. That’s like Beyonce turning into a gangsta rapper after DIL.

    She tried to go pop and realized that she could sell a couple million singles, but not an album. I’m no longer checking for her and I probably won’t support her music again….

    • RihannasYeastInfection May 8, 2013

      Nicki lost her hood badge with that pop s***!

    • ImMadAsHell May 9, 2013

      Nicki lost her hip hop fans long before PF:RR came out. Her hip hp fans was bringing back PF & exchanging it for other female rapper cds.

  24. RihannasYeastInfection May 8, 2013
