Far removed from the polarising effort that was ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘, Nicki Minaj kickstarts the campaign for its follow-up with single ‘Pills N Potions.‘
Now, after watching 2012’s ‘Starships’ soar to global sales of 7.2 million units in front of the world’s very eyes, ‘Potions’ now finds itself making silent but serious moves towards the Gold mark…less than a month after its release!
In its release week, ‘Potions’ debuted with US sales of 84,000 units and then went on to move a further 60,000 copies in its second week, pushing it to the 144,000 units sold mark after a fortnight.
Now, as its official video kissed the 3,077,000 million VEVO streaming figure less than 48 hours after launch, this week is set to see ‘Pills’ reach the 200,000 units sold milestone, and is now expected to hit sales of 500,000 units by July’s end…if not earlier.
For, with the aforementioned 144,000 units moved before the release of its video, the clip is now expected to hand the single a consistent sales run in the weeks following this one, currently seeing it placed at #22 on iTunes USA and set to give it no choice but to crack the ‘Hot 100′s Top 40 once its streaming points are thrown into the equation.
