Chart Check: Nick Minaj Extends Social 50 Record / Elijah Blake & J.Cole Surpass 10 Million Streams With ‘Vendetta’

Published: Wednesday 2nd Oct 2013 by David

They’re the Urban album sellers boasting sales many a Pop staple could only dream of.

Now, after flying the flag for Hip Hop time and time again, Nicki Minaj & J.Cole find themselves leading the way for a fresher faced Hip Hop contributor this year, set to join them in the run at the top in the coming year.

His name?

Elijah Blake.

Full story below…

Before the unveiling of his brand new EP ‘Bijoux 23’ in the winter, Blake sees his J.Cole assisted number ‘Vendetta’ surpass the 10 million streams milestone today.

How he did it?

Well, thanks to unofficial version of the songs uploaded to Google’s YouTube and Alexander Ljung‘s SoundCloud, music lovers across the globe have been able to access on the cut on numerous players- pulling traffic away from its official player but resulting in a total of 10 million streams worldwide.

Helped in part by the hype that surrounded Cole’s #1 album ‘Born Sinner‘ and the anticipation surrounding Elijah‘s forthcoming EP ‘Bijoux 23′, Vendetta’s digital run marks the latest win to be scored by the 23 year old- responsible for penning Usher’s Grammy winning effort ‘Climax’.

Meanwhile, in extending her lead as Rap’s highest ranking female since Lauryn Hill, Nicki Minaj’s continued popularity online has seen her spend her 148th week on Billboard’s Social 50.

By doing this, she extends her lead as the only female Rapper to spend more than 100 weeks on the tally, sure to rise tomorrow when the chart is updated, thanks to the promotional campaign afforded to her new fragrance, ‘Minajesty‘.

    @sam why havent you reported that Billboard named Kelly Rowland/David Guetta WLTO best Dance/Pop Collaboration of ALL TIME followed by a few other great tracks including Rihanna/Calvin Harris WFL…However you can post a video of Beyonce performing everyday..and no shade…i Love Beyonce..but this is big news for Miss Rowland!!

    • TurntUp4Cici October 2, 2013

      Why should anyone support Kelly when her ass is too lazy to support herself.

      • Chillin October 2, 2013

        sigh…so predictable…just like the person you represent

    • Keyshia Del Rey October 2, 2013

      They probably forgot, the same way Kelly forgot to promote her album.

      • Molly October 2, 2013


      • Chillin October 2, 2013

  8. RebelleMichelle October 2, 2013

    Kelly fans think the entire world owe them something when Kelly can’t even owe it to herself to help her own career.
    She released that album, promoted it for one week and then went whale watching. Then when common sense SHOULD have told her to use XF to promote it her ass forgets to release a new single.
    All of this happens yet her stans expect people to take her seriously. She’s plain and simple lazy and only cares about sun bathing on Miami beach.

    • Chillin October 2, 2013

      Actually we dont think anyone owes us anything..Kelly gave me an awesome album..and i get to see her twice a week every week on tv – as the rest of the world falls in love with her…so thanks for your input….but in the meantime where is your favorite?

      • RebelleMichelle October 2, 2013

        You’re being serious? Ask yourself why K outsold Kelly boo? Ask yourself why Kelly been in the game almost 20 years and has never had a Grammy, her own world tour OR number one single. K.Michelle is doing just fine for someone whose career just got back on track, Kelly is flopping mercilessly.

      • Sweetie pie October 2, 2013

        Kelly has a Grammy boo something knockknee Michele will NEVER have lmao

      • Chillin October 2, 2013

        Please educate yourself young man/young lady before you make yourself look as silly as K Michelle…Kelly Rowland had TWO tours of her own…Simply Deep Tour, and Ms Kelly Tour ..the first grossing over 16 your research boo.. LMAOOOOOOOOOO “K Michelle is diong just fine for someone whos career just got back on track”..have a seat my dear..for your own good…and you still didnt answer my question..I said where is your favorite..i didnt see her at the concert she was scheduled for…oh yeah..she is scared of Tamar…. #BLOOP

    • Chillin October 2, 2013

      google it sweetie..its in the record books..Simply Deep Tour

  24. How Many Drinks (Miguels Wifey) October 2, 2013

    Elijah is so s*** mmmmm

  25. TIsForTamar October 2, 2013

    Please, not a Kelly stan talking about anybody’s achievements. ALL the other girls have had one era where they slayed. Beyonce always slays. Rihanna has been slaying since 07. Ciara had the Evolution and Brandy was slaying before 2000. Name ONE ERA where Kelly slayed.
    She doesn’t have one because Mathew didn’t care to help her AND because she was too lazy to push for more when she finally fired him.

    • Sweetie pie October 2, 2013

      Let’s talk about Tamar’s debut album and LAW that won’t see gold status!! How about that??

      • Chillin October 2, 2013

        Thank you very much Sweetie Pie..these are some delusional ass people..How easily they FORGET..One damn album she got some decent sales and they act like the world is theirs..Tamar never even had a number one single outside the USA..much less WITHIN the damn continent of the United States..Whether it being the Hot 100, R&B charts or whatever other chart you wish to bring up..Do not EVER compare Kelly’s Success to Tamar …you will be embarrassed…

  26. Molly October 2, 2013

    The girls don’t wanna hear about what a Kelly stan has to say…
