Chart Check: Jessie J, Nicki Minaj, & Ariana Grande Break Onto Billboard Chart With A ‘Bang’

Published: Thursday 7th Aug 2014 by Rashad

Well, that escalated quickly!

After hitting #1 on Itunes just hours after its premiere, talented trio Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Minaj have taken their blazing single ‘Bang Bang’ right to Billboard’s upper rankings!

Storming the Hot 100 with reports of the second highest first week sales of the year, the news come as yet another win for Grande who still holds the title for the year’s biggest debut with ‘Problem’ (which clocked over 430k sold its first week of digital availability).

As the diva syndicate’s accompanying visual readies the extension of the song’s onslaught of charts, it may take an act of magic to get the tally’s current reigning champ unseated.  As MAGIC!‘s ‘Rude’ readies another week run atop the Hot 100, will Jessie J and co. have what it take to dethrone the island anthem?  Or, will silent assassin Sam Smith and hit tune ‘Stay With Me’ make its way in for the kill?

See the latest chart check and tell us your thoughts:

    • Keri Qween August 7, 2014

      Why? It’s not her song, get Anaconda to #1 then you can brag

      • nicko August 8, 2014

        Nicki is credited as a LEAD artist on Bang Bang. And Anaconda is top 5 on itunes.

  4. Stephy August 7, 2014

    This list is terrible.

    • Danny b August 8, 2014

      With the exception of MAGIC! & Sam Smith

    • JOHNVIDAL August 8, 2014

      Yes it is! Only a couple of songs kind of deserve to be there. But hey, this changed for the worse many years ago now. Around 2000 I would say, when illegal downloading started and labels stopped promoting and spending their money onlt in talent.

  5. nicko August 8, 2014

    Buy Anaconda on iTunes ! 😉

    • Tamartian August 8, 2014

  9. #TeamTinashe Stan (Watch Out For Her New Single “Pretend” Ft. ASAP Rocky This Month) August 8, 2014

    Gosh that “All About That Bass” song is so ridiculous lmao smh.
    Anyways, great news #TeamTinashe!!!!!!! The Queen’s Reign on the Billboard charts just won’t let up with her debut single “2 On” STILL at #1 for three consecutive weeks on the Rhythmic charts thus making it both her & ScHoolboy Q’s first #1 song and DJ Mustards’ second. The music video for the song is already over 15 million views on Youtube. Now with all the anticipation to the single, RCA is gearing up on releasing her album “Aquarius” in September possibly on the 23rd, meaning that Jhene Aiko might have some competition. Also, she will be releasing her new single “Pretend” featuring ASAP Rocky this month!!! GET READY!

    • JuanR August 8, 2014


  13. TABLEUX August 8, 2014

    But wait…… Bang Bang had smaller first day digital sales than anaconda. I will howl if Anaconda debuts top 10 (or even peaks)

    • NICKIMINAJ QUEEN August 8, 2014

      bang bang got into the top 10 with alot streaming anaconda so far doesnt have alot streaming like me do so i doubt it being in the top 10 maybe top 30 or top 40 but when the music video it probably will go in sells and on the charts Pills N Potions goes gold next week

  14. truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

    Where is FLOPaconda tho? Kii

    • FAF August 8, 2014

      It’s outselling kims flopography

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 8, 2014

      Fu ck u musty lip ho

  16. FAF August 8, 2014

    Hopefully this will be performed at the VMAS as well as flawless

  17. Jessie j stan August 8, 2014

    Jessie slay just doing what she does. Best stay pressed haters

  18. Bey-Minaj August 8, 2014

    Actually Anaconda debuted at #50 on Hot 100. Sam been sleeping on the job cuz this chart came out days ago.

  19. Casual-T August 8, 2014

    The way the charts are calculated now, a top 10 debut makes it harder to reach #1, rather than easier. Look at Ari G’s Problem. The song exploded onto the Hot 100 at #3, but it never topped the charts, because sales were beginning to decline by the time airplay and streaming were hitting their strides. What this means is, Bang Bang will not challenge Stay with Me to succeed Rude at #1.

  20. Brian310 August 8, 2014

    Congrats to them for making it in the top 100, this song is helping all 3 women set up their respective eras nicely.
