Nicki Minaj Sets Two Female Rap Records With New Singles

Published: Tuesday 5th Aug 2014 by David


Record breaker.

After watching her debut LP ‘Pink Friday’ shift a sweet 1 million units in its first month of release, Nicki Minaj swings back onto iTunes with her third studio release,’The Pink Print’ ,this year,led by the so-so selling ‘Pills n Potions.’

However, this cut finds itself overshadowed by two new releases launched by the rapper. The first, being ‘Bang Bang‘ and the second being ‘Anaconda’, both of which helping her set a sizzling new chart record.

Full story below…

Despite being used to promote Jessie J‘s third studio album, the single ‘Bang Bang’ sees all three of its contributors (Ariana Grande, Nicki and J herself) stand as lead acts on the fiery bop.

So, once its follow-up ‘Anaconda’ reached #1 on iTunes as it sat at #2, Nicki became the first female rapper to have two of her singles placed at #1 and #2 on the digital tally, extending her lead as the most commercially successful Femcee of all time.

At the same time, ‘Anaconda’s rise to the top made Minaj the first female rapper to top the chart with a solo single, surpassing efforts made by each and every female rapper to impact the tally hours after its release!

      CHILE, I’m not going to even GO THERE lol 😉 I’ve come with better news..but congrats to Nicki on the little Itunes solo chart record thing featuring Sir All In The Mix Alot More Than Her On Her Own Damn Solo Single 😉 Now…

      Bang Bang will probably debut in the Top 10 at #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 (the chart that counts) tomorrow from its performance on digital, radio and might get Top 5 at #5…maybe…but congrats…this is the prediction:

      1. Rude = (6-10% of lead)
      2. Stay With Me +1
      3. Fancy -1
      4. Am I Wrong =
      5. Problem =
      6. Bang Bang HOT SHOT DEBUT
      7. Maps -1
      8. Chandelier +1
      9. Latch -2
      10. All About That Bass +18

      Source: Kworb and Ger-55
      We’ll know for sure tomorrow, but its fun to predict 😉

      • Bey-Minaj August 5, 2014

        according to Billboard, Bang debuted at #19 on Pop Songs. They also entered rap chart and rhythmic.

      • Fancy BISH August 5, 2014

        @ Bey-Minaj
        That’s great, I guess you can say Bang Bang is off with a BANG.

      • the voice August 6, 2014

        Billboard charts are not Most important b/c it includes radio payola numbers.
        If it were not for the CLEAR CHANNEL deal IGGY wouldnt have been #1 b.c she did not have the biggest selling single when Fancy went to #1.. She was helped by radio

      • Fancy BISH August 6, 2014

        She DID have the biggest selling single the week Fancy went #1 boo boo…she sold 336,000 downloads BISH 😉

  2. Steven August 5, 2014

    This isn’t true though as Iggy Azalea was No.1 & 2 on iTuned with Fancy and Problem….

    • BeyNika August 5, 2014

      You are a f****** fool. Did you not read the thread? Iggy FEATURED on Problem, Bang Bang is Nicki’s song because it’s a cobilling? Learn to read w****.

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 5, 2014

        Lesrn to have sense sluut. Iggy was at the top slots for 7wks…icki cant even do it on itunes for a day kii to the 4th power

    • ANACONDA!! August 5, 2014

      SOLO artist. First female rapper to have a #1 single on iTunes. Without a feature. Charlie was a feature on Fancy lol. Do your research.

      • CATFISH CAREY August 5, 2014


      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 5, 2014

        Catfish dont let them work u. They dont know any better. All icki stan r 12 and under…what do they know

    • BarbBey August 5, 2014

      @Steven You should learn to read before you write.

    • Onika Mizrahi August 5, 2014

      Poor thing rushed to comment before it even read.

      1. Bang Bang is just as much Nicki’s song as it is Jessie’s and Ari’s because UMG made it a co billing and not a featured song.
      2. Anaconda is a SOLO single, Fancy is not.
      3. You mad my fave is slaying without a radio deal?
      4. I think you are.
      5. Wanna make a complaint?
      6. Direct your comments to

      • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 5, 2014

        Ok yall know something, these biitch tooooo stoopid to even drag today. Nicki quite LITERALLY has the DUMBEST stans on this planet

    • Tim Blake August 5, 2014

      Please read. Nicki is the first with her SOLO song. Neither of stupid Iggy aFAILia’s songs had someone else with her.

  3. heir August 5, 2014

    this site wants to hate IGGY so bad…… these iTunes charts don’t matter! #PRESSED

    • MadameBey August 5, 2014

      Itunes don’t matter? Itunes has a 60% share in the market so do your motherfucking research darling. Nicki is slaying with SALES and not streams and that’s why you’re mad because you let the media tell you that Iggy was slaying her and THAT is a lie.

      • Rosie August 5, 2014

        You do know streaming surpassed sales in revenue already right? And I don’t know why you’re using streaming as a drag since Iggy was slaying iTunes before Spotify and etc.

    • BOOBIE August 6, 2014

      This article mentions nothing about Iggy…what are you talking about ho?

  4. NickiDisownedYou August 5, 2014

    On behalf of the Barbz, I wanna thank Sam and David for the support they’ve been showing the Queen for all these years. These other flop b****** can try but they will NEVER surpass ha and for that I am so proud.

    • NickiBeenBad August 5, 2014

      Real f****** talk, she needs to give them an interview this era.

      • HolyNika August 5, 2014

        You better speak that s*** into existence sistah.

  5. christinastherealtalent August 5, 2014

    Let’s see where Anaconda sits this time next week. The song is so weak and unoriginal and I wouldn’t be surprised if Nicki and her team were buying their own copies. How convenient she receives the same record that Iggy just broke.

    • QueenNicki (Nobody Can Match You) August 5, 2014

      Nice try sis but once you again you failed like the neverdowell b**** that you are. Nicki has always sold like this but slipped up on RR because she got complacent and thought her name is big enough to sell without proper promo and she was wrong.
      I know it must STING that she is slaying with sales and not streams and that actual people are buying the actual song BEFORE it goes for radio adds.
      By the way, the Barbz have no reason to hate on Iggy but she isn’t on Nicki’s level in ANY department, talent, sales or otherwise so BOOM.

  6. Jdek August 5, 2014

    I am very worried about anaconda tbh.

  7. Diamonds August 5, 2014

    That Beyonce Hype impact! Congratz queen Onika!!

  8. CATFISH CAREY August 5, 2014


  9. Stephy August 5, 2014

    This album was NOT shift no where near a million copies within a month. More like 120K 1st week..

    • CATFISH CAREY August 5, 2014


    • TJ August 5, 2014

      Um, no. It sold 375k first week in the US alone….

      • Rosie August 5, 2014

        …in 2010. The market has changed. Albums barely go platnium within 6 months anymore. Streaming killed album sales for good.
        Only a few albums this year sold at least 200K first week, and that likely won’t change until maybe Q4.

  10. Beysus August 5, 2014


  11. 7 August 5, 2014

    After All, that flawless remix was a great way to hype her up towards her new single! Smart move! Just associate your name with Queen bey’s and you”ll see wonders 🙂

    • BeyWhoUWanna August 5, 2014

      Yes dear, together the Barbs and the Hive are unstoppable!!

  12. Metzo August 5, 2014

    Where is Flawless on ITunes??! Realease that shyt Bey.

  13. LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 5, 2014

    I am waiting for John to come seethe, like usual

  14. Rosie August 5, 2014

    Even though I hate Nicki, it is a pretty good feat for her as a female rapper. Too bad she did it with her worst song to date. And I thought her stans would’ve learned from the “l0l BYE IGGY!!” comments they made when her last single came out.

  15. LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 5, 2014

    Well as much as Nicki has impressed me this time around, I cannot be happy nor congratulate her about this simply because Anaconda is horrible construction noise.

    Every purchase of that garbage should with a tax for noise pollution IMO.

  16. KingBey4QueenNicki August 5, 2014

    David better SPILL that truth tea! PF sold 1 million first month in America alone. That’s all I have to say. Actually it isn’t.
    I WISH you hating ass whores would talk some s*** about her now. My fave can sell without payola and without fake hype and that’s where you other girls will always fall short, cos you’re NOTHING without payola and media hype. Nicki got into a fight with Queen Mariah Carey but her brand is SO strong that it didn’t do a BIT of damage to her career. Now run and tell zat.


    So we are going to pretend ‘Fancy’ didn’t happen? Really? We are going to act like Iggy didn’t sit here and scalp Nicki Minaj this year? So…. because Anaconda has sat at #1 on iTunes for less than 24 hours we are going to forget all Iggy did for Rap?

    Sam it’s official. You are SOOOO BIASED! Just straight up BIASED! Nicki Minaj couldn’t keep Bang Bang in the Top #3 on iTunes for a week and we are going to say it has matched the Success of Problem?

    I am so done with your ability to discredit someone because you favor someone else?

    Hence Lil’ Kim. You gave her the pettiest cover story on this sight Why? Because your obsessed with Fix-A-Flat Minaj.

    Anyway lets see where these “Record Breaking” singles sit in the next 5 (scratch that) 3 days.

    • Connor Spears August 5, 2014

      Fancy isn’t a solo song cos Charli sings the hook and Problem belongs to Ariana. What about that is so confusing?

      • MisdamenorFan August 6, 2014

        But isn’t Sir Mix A Lot on the hook of Flopaconda?!??! Probably more than Charli

    • HistoRih August 5, 2014

      Sis, look at how heated you are over Garbaj. How many times does it need to be broken down to you. The only person on Anaconda is Nicki so that makes it a SOLO song and BB is Nicki’s song because it’s being sold as a three way collab not one singer featuring two others.

    • Rosie August 5, 2014

      True about Bang Bang. Did he forget about Problem DEBUTING in the top 5 and becoming one of the biggest hits of the summer worldwide?


        @Rosie EXACTLY.

        He so far up Nicki ass he can’t see straight. Makes me sick. How many songs has she released in the last year? How many popped? #NONE

  18. CATFISH CAREY August 5, 2014


  19. LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 5, 2014

    Pink Friday Roman Reloaded didn’t stall at 200K like the Not classic tho

    • NaviSoFetch August 5, 2014

      Pink Friday Roman Reloaded sold OVER 200K first week.

      • Skyfall August 5, 2014


    • CATFISH CAREY August 5, 2014


    • Rosie August 5, 2014

      But didn’t you stan for lea michele? Has her album done 100k yet?

      • LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 5, 2014

        Has Lana sold enough copies to get a certification? You said she is an album seller, why isn’t it showing?

      • Rosie August 5, 2014

        But the fact of the matter is that she’s selling more than all of your flops. Keep seething and dedicating gravatars to greater artists you bitter old f**.

      • LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 5, 2014

        But has the album seller sold enough to get a certification?

        Speaking of flops, is the Not classic gold yet?

      • Rosie August 5, 2014

        But tell me how all the flops you shield behind rihanna are doing? Lana is about to hit 1 million ww in her first month and a half. Have any of the flops you stan for, besides rihanna, even hit 100k? Absolute death.

      • LB (35Keryl Tweedy) August 5, 2014

        And Lana is only selling 12K this week, about 2K ahead of Lorde who’s album is still selling years after release, the one you were slagging off.

        Ultrairrelevance also sold LESS THAN Artpop in terms of first week sales, and is selling LESS THAN Artpop in the US with 12k and falling weekly sales.

        Remember how you slandered Gags last year, only to realize your fav is a bigger FLOP. At least GAGS got a few top tens out of her album, how are all Lana’s struggle singles doing sis?

      • Rosie August 5, 2014

        The logic…
        Ultraviolence is already on track with gaga in ww numbers. Born to die is still doing 10k almost 3 years after its release. Lana doesn’t promote her singles to radio like your faves try, so that point is invalid.
        But tell me how Leona and lea are doing. You always dodge the questions like the cowardly f** you are.

  20. Realest August 5, 2014

    Lmfao what kind of irrelevant “record” is this? Let us know when she actually sets a record that matters. iTunes “records” are like buying “Walgreens” brands version of tampons as opposed to Kotex or Tampax..

  21. Marley August 5, 2014

    Nickis smart, she rode of the Beyonce remix hype by releasing Anacknda straight after.

  22. _taylormvde August 5, 2014

    all this bashing s*** because …???
    its obvious both are doing their thang, so just give the b**** her props and move the f*** on. PERIOD. MFRS cant ever just give a each other a hi five on a good job. FYI: GOOD or BAD ALLL publicity is GOOD!! dumbazz c** guzzlers!

    • _taylormvde August 5, 2014

      ***FYI: GOOD or BAD ALLL publicity = $$$$!!

  23. Thot August 5, 2014



    To all y’all throwing Pink Friday album sales as shade. Let’s re-cap.

    In 2010 music was in a different place! Britney was doing 275K, as well as Chris Brown. Gaga was doing 1,000,000.

    Do you idiots think if Pink Friday was released this year it would have done the same numbers? HELL NO! Do I need to pull those Roman Reloaded and RE-UP sales as a prime example?

    Now days Gold is the new Platinum, and Platinum is the new Double Platinum. Albums barely sell half as much as they did 4 years ago.

    So stop. Face it Nicki had to strip every damn piece of clothing off and show her bare ass (which isn’t hers) to get people to even realize she had a new single. Then, the single was a hot ass mess with a sample of one of the most unintelligent songs of all time.

    Nicki is ticking and tocking in the time clock of relevancy. And she’s ticking down

    • Rosie August 5, 2014

      I STAY trying to tell these f*** this. I remember Ciara was the flop of the year for debuting at #44 with 37K. Now you can easily get into the top 10 with ~20K.

  25. Tea Spilt. August 5, 2014

    Lauryn Hill and Missy Elliott are the most commercially successful female rappers of all time.

    Nicki sells singles…

    • Xavier Peoples August 6, 2014

      Yeah, it’s kinda ridiculous to say she is more successful than Missy considering how many records Missy has sold.

    • Rihboy August 6, 2014

      I would ride her coattails to if i was a hasbeen.

  26. char August 5, 2014

    used to like her… now i think she’s #disgusting #trashy #ratchet

  27. King August 5, 2014

    Cause artists be bragging about songs and albums being number one on Itunes like it’s Billboard. Let’s see if the song does something on the charts.

  28. RoyalKev August 5, 2014

    Do it Nik! I’m happy for her.

  29. Casual-T August 5, 2014

    But if the song features the Mix-A-Lot sample, is it really a solo record?

  30. dapoint August 5, 2014

    even though this announcement is premature and the accomplishment is a slight reach, people saying itunes don’t matter is delusional.I tunes is the money. It’s people spending coins on the artist instead of adding the radio spins that biased tone deaf dj’s choose. Ipersonally thinkBillboardcharts have become just as much a joke. It’s all jokes for stans to fight and shout over.

    Think about it. If artist x,y,and z are powerhouse artist. And artist c,d, f are just ok. Lets say artist e puts hers ong out when x, y, z releases. Evwill struggle to make noise. The market is more competitive. But,if she puts out when it’s just c,d, f she will chart high. What about the sales? The money.

    My point-How would Fancy have done if it was released same time Starships or superbass came out?

  31. Rih Rox August 5, 2014

    LOL it looks like she has a butttt
    Attached to her chest. Get a better
    Fitted bra cause that is made for
    Smaller NATURAL girls :/

  32. LIL’ KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. August 6, 2014

    LOL! This swagger-jacking heffa’s single couldn’t sit on the top of iTunes for even a full day without starting to fall down. It’s at #2 now, and it will keep falling.

    Nicki Garbaj is a copycat and a whack heffa.
