Nicki Minaj Blazes Into Top 10 Of iTunes US With ‘Anaconda’

Published: Monday 4th Aug 2014 by Sam


Can you decipher the sound? It’s Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Anaconda’ stinging the competition. For, less than 24 hours after its release, the track (which serves as the second official single from her third album, ‘The Pink Print’) has slithered its way into the top ten of the iTunes tally.

Details below…

As at writing, the song – which was produced by Da Internz and Polow Da Don – sits at #9 on the main chart of the US retailer.

And, though greeted by a polarizing response, it appears the track is poised for a major debut on the Billboard Hot 100 next week — should it maintain its momentum. The latter being something we’re sure will be the case given the fact its accompanying video (streams et al) is due imminently.

We’re still not “sold-sold’ on the song (yet). However, it’s clear that it’s “selling-selling” nonetheless.

        Well….She’s number 4 in Thailand. They probably only got 5 songs over there. but still.

    • krinkum August 4, 2014

      hows the epic motion picture that is G.U.Y doing on the charts??

  5. Blue August 4, 2014

    Not to dump on anyone’s joy but didnt PNP jump into the top 10 and fell hard the following days…not sure but wasnt this availabl on pre-order meaning right now its riding on the accumulated sales of a few days and not hours?

    • NICKIMINAJ QUEEN August 4, 2014

      uk has to pre-order they get the song in october on the us itunes we dont have to pre-order for it

  6. MsThing485 August 4, 2014

    This is the epitome of childish and I can’t believe Sir Mix A lot would authorize this buffoonish desecration of his record. Y’know…Salt N Pepa, MC Lyte and Missy made party records back in the day, but unlike Nicki they didn’t sound like 14 year old strippers on a shoe string budget. Why is it that everything on the radio these days have to sound cheap, uber-childish and/or gay?

  7. I G G Y August 4, 2014

    2 female rappers in the top 20 iTunes !!!!!! GET IT GIRL

  8. MisdamenorFan August 4, 2014

    Ugh, some people accept mediocre because of a name attached. No thanks.

  9. The Great Lacefronce. August 4, 2014

    It’ll fall right back off the chart in days

  10. NickiBeenBad August 4, 2014

    I don’t even have to argue with the haters. Too busy SUPPORTING my fave instead of TALKING about my fave.

  11. LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 4, 2014

    I am reminded of Lana Del Rey – West coast as to the reason I do not count those iTunes one day peaks.

    Until it maintains that momentum for at least 5 days straight on iTunes, I still count Anaconda as a FLOP, and deserving of so considering how horrible it is.

  12. BeyNika August 4, 2014

    Haters so mad though. Yes girls, we actually buy music here at Team Minaj. We buy singles, albums and tour tickets. You maud?

    • Mariah4Life August 4, 2014

      You buy albums at Team Minaj? ***looks at the sales of ROMAN RELOADED***

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 4, 2014


      • krinkum August 4, 2014

        try glancing over the sales of the elusive fat flopeuse also

    • Commander of the RihannaNavy August 4, 2014

      No, you don’t at Team Minaj. Roman Reloaded has yet to sell over 900k in the US. About half of the songs Nicki has been on failed to chart. Pills N Potions has yet to reach gold. And Nicki’s tour had multiple shows less then 80% sold out.

      • Crush King August 21, 2014

        Damn right. Roman Reloaded is selling over there in Japan where they don’t know WTF she is saying.

  13. LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 4, 2014

    Here was me hoping Nicki Minaj learned from Stupid h**, but it’s like she is not trying anymore unless she is on a feature where she truly shines.

    I liked PnP but Anaconda, no ma’am, you could have kept that rubbish or at least put it on Roman Reloaded.

    Urban is eating it up as projected. Almost every queen on my instagram has posted the cover picture. The song is so bad compared to what nicki is capable of. She is back tracking. The only reason she is doing well is because its an unoriginal remix, and all the hype of the flawless remix. I want to congratulate, but the song is trash. I see it dropping out of the top 10 by mid week.

    • Rihboy August 4, 2014

      She could have done a different drop beat, and had a better flow for her barz. The “my anaconda dont” is the only feasible part. I see djs mixing this over heavily because its just mediocre at best. #nomediocre

      • LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 4, 2014

        Did you just hashtag that horrible TI song? ewwwww

    It is better than that Iggy / Rita trash on radio right now.

    Release that video and get those vevo points for Billboard Nicki.

    Go do Elvis Duran, Seacrest, Power 105, Intl radio, etc…. get em girl

  18. Fancy BISH August 4, 2014

    This song is garbage. The beat never kicks in, it keeps stopping and starting. Are people suppose to stop dancing then start back on the dance floor? Nicki at least KNOWS how ratchet she sounds (which is why this is a step back for her) by repeating “I’m on some dumb ish.” If How Many Licks and Baby Got Back had a baby, this is the little ratchet Honey Boo Boo 😉 Even Honey Boo Boo was a hit, but does that make her any less ratchet? NOPE.

  19. K August 4, 2014

    cool, can’t wait to watch the full video.

  20. Metzo August 4, 2014

    Why isn’t ***Flawless Remix on itunes yet? Beyonce keeps fu*king with our feelings. Ealease tat s*** Bey!!

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 4, 2014

      😐 ???? BRWAAAHAHAHAHAHA LOLOLOL BEY WONT RELEASE IT LOLOL SHE KNOW ICKI WILL EVEN FLOP HER!!! LOL!! Bey lookn at Remy after that remix she just did with DJ Kali honey lolol!! NO ONE WANTS ICKI KII!!

      • Memo August 4, 2014

        No more than XO, Partition and Pretty hurts, besides her pretty average album sales made her flop.

  21. Commander of the RihannaNavy August 4, 2014

    The song is absolute trash and sounds like Lil Kim’s How Many Licks minus the bars. Pills N Potions zoomed up iTunes too and it still failed to crack the top 40 without streaming points. Yet another nail in her coffin.

  22. Rosie August 4, 2014

    It’ll fall within a few days.
    And I see Fagbird is still obsessed with Lana. Why bring up West Coast when literally EVERY single that’s not by Katy/Rihanna (and now maybe Ariana) plummets after two days. That’s including the other basic b****** you bandwagon for.

  23. char August 4, 2014


  24. Crush King August 21, 2014

    I thought Lil Kim was wrong for still coming at Nicki, But Anaconda proves she is still riding lil kims wave. The concept, verse set up and lyrics are all snatched from “How Many Licks”…With less talent and no real dancing.


    Video: ANACONDA is 15% better than HOW MANY LICKS
    Lyrics: ANACONDA is 65% worse than HOW MANY LICKS
    Originality: Dies Laughing

    Verdict: FAIL!

    I’m going to just turn the sound off and beat my meat to this p***. Thanks Nick!
