‘Pills N Potions’: Nicki Minaj Makes Healthy Gains Towards ‘Gold’

Published: Wednesday 11th Jun 2014 by David

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.

    Flop

    • The Pink Print June 11, 2014

      You TRIED!!! Anyways the song will go Top 40 THIS WEEK (Note: The streams from the video DID NOT impact THIS week’s chart update as the tracking week for streams ended on Sunday whereas the video was released Monday). This means it will rise again NEXT WEEK. Also this song is in the Top 20 on Rhythmic, Top 40 on Urban and debuted Today on Pop Radio(it was sent to this format on the 10th). As most of Nicki’s songs, this will probably be a sleeper hit).

        I don’t think a b**** that sells 200k copies in three weeks is called tanking.

    • michael June 11, 2014

      You might wanna see where Nicki is after 25 years.

      Comparing Mariahs stats today to Nickis is totally dumb. Its like comparing Celine stats today to Beyonces. It makes no sense.

      I know there was the little incident between the two but the comparison of stats is retarded!

    • Minaj21 June 11, 2014

      Damn I am starting to like u tbh

      • Proud-Arianator June 11, 2014

        <3 <3

  9. michael June 11, 2014

    THIS SITE IS OFFICIALLY ON THE BEYONCE AND NICKI MINAJ PAYROLL!

    This post is a hilarious attempt to try and force positivity on Nicki Minaj while this same board will force excess negativity on Mariah and Rihanna!

    Sam and his crew are fully aware of the power and influence of this blog and use it well!

    • Rosie June 11, 2014

      Where’s Chartflop?

  14. Rosie June 11, 2014

    With a generic Dr. Luke beat, tons of promo, lots of comeback hype and anticipation, radio play, and such a big video premiere for the so-called queen of rap, I expected this to do Problem numbers. Oh well.

    • NICKI IS QUEEN June 11, 2014

      GO BUY WEST COAST

      • Rosie June 11, 2014

        Already did. Maybe if you do the same with Roman Retarded or the Re-Fund it can finally go platinum.

    • Minaj21 June 11, 2014

      Has Lana ever had a top five single ever? Just asking cause you be acting as if your fave can sell singles

      • Rosie June 11, 2014

        Lana is an albums artist. Kii at BTD outselling both of Icki’s albums combined worldwide.

    • Blue Ivy Carter-Rodriguez June 11, 2014

      But how much did West Coast debut with?

      • Rosie June 11, 2014

        117K. Nice attempt, though.

    • Minaj21 June 11, 2014

      Kiii at super bass and starships alone outselling llamas whole discography.

      • Rosie June 11, 2014

        Not really. Please check the receipts before you try and make such outlandish claims. All you did was drag your fave for being a sellout singles artist since most of her 1943830 Urban singles probably didn’t even outsell Video Games.

  15. CT June 11, 2014

    Lil kim has been black latin and asian. I wonder what race she will choose next year? Maybe native american

    • truth (The PinkShit will FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 11, 2014
