Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ Rises To #2 On The ‘Billboard Hot 100’

Published: Wednesday 27th Aug 2014 by David



Rap’s reigning queen Nicki Minaj has good cause to celebrate today, no doubt over the moon after learning that her new single ‘Anaconda’ has shot to #2 on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’!

How the rapper has extended her lead as one of the  highest selling rappers of all time?

‘Billboard’ bares all, below…

The publication explains:

Following the release of its video on Aug. 19, “Anaconda” makes a 42-1 lunge on Streaming Songs with a 1,287 percent surge to 32.1 million streams; 95 percent of its total is from Vevo on YouTube. The overall sum is the highest since Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” drew 36.4 million streams (Sept. 28, 2013) following the first full week after its video premiered. The greatest streaming total since the chart launched on March 2, 2013, and the only other song (in addition to “Wrecking Ball”) to tally more weekly streams than “Anaconda”: Baauer’s “Shake” peaked with 103 million (powered heavily by user-generated clips featuring the song’s audio) the week that the survey debuted.

The “Anaconda” video, and her performance at the VMAs, spurs a 24-6 leap for the cut on Digital Songs (120,000, up 132 percent). The track is slithering toward Radio Songs, primed to pounce in with 25 million (up 33 percent).

With the 39-2 ascent of “Anaconda,” Minaj snares her highest Hot 100 rank. The song passes the No. 3 peaks of two 2011 hits: her own “Super Bass” and her featured turn on Spears’ “Till the World Ends.”

“Anaconda” is Minaj’s 11th Hot 100 top 10, extending her record among female rappers. Missy Elliott ranks second with nine.

Meanwhile, the 39-2 ascent for “Anaconda” marks the second-biggest jump ever within the Hot 100’s top 40. Only the Black Eyed Peas made a loftier leap in the region when “Boom Boom Pow” blasted 39-1 on April 18, 2009.

On Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, “Anaconda” becomes Minaj’s third No. 1 (10-1). It’s her third No. 1 on Rap Songs (4-1), where it dethrones Azalea’s “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX, after a record-tying 18-week reign. (Elliott’s “Hot Boyz,” featuring Nas, Eve and Q-Tip, reigned for 18 weeks in 1999-2000). On the Hot 100, “Fancy” falls out of the top 10 (5-11). The collab spent seven weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 and remains the only title to have led Billboard’s Songs of the Summer chart this year; one week remains in the survey’s tracking period before the season’s final rankings are revealed.


To call her latest achievements impressive would be an understatement.

For, while ‘Pink Friday Roman Reloaded‘s struggle to reach the 1 million US units sold mark had her naysayers fooled, Minaj remains one of the highest selling acts to debut within the last decade, from any genre.

Fortunately for her, ‘Anaconda’s success on a sales and streaming front has handed her the publicity she needed to ensure the world was hyped about ‘The Pink Print’ even before she announces it release date.

Her task now? To ensure ‘Anaconda’ stays atop its current commercial wave and begin the push for an album that could easily be her highest selling to date if she exercises every opportunity she has to promote it.

Truth be told, any less than 300,000 units moved first week would be a disaster for the femcee, who would have months and many a major promotional spot to convince the general public to pick it up by the time it drops.

Is she up to the challenge?

      Don’t be a hater … It’s not cute . Even though this song is TRASHY , nicki minaj wrote it herself anddd when it comes to other females rappers that’s relevant (Iggy) her bars ARE WEAK AS FUCKKK . let’s be honest and she don’t even write her own s*** , who that happened ? Lmaoo #sipstea

      • anaconda August 27, 2014

        Like the new classic has sold 300K and it’s been out months longer than anaconda. By 2 weeks anaconda will be gold. Giving Nicki her 3rd gold single this era and the album hasn’t dropped. You stay mad that anaconda is the highest peaking SOLO single for a female rapper EVER.

        So while the new classic is yet to reach pink fridays first week sales you can say PRESST.

        You can’t call it trash when Iggy doesn’t even write her own music. OOP

    • griffin August 27, 2014

      people are actually buying it for the catchy hook! the same reason fancy and black widow are being purchased (;

      • Molly August 27, 2014

        Lmao no ones buying that bullsh!t that’s why it still hasn’t sold over 400k.

      • Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

        Each week it sells over 100,000 so its gonna go gold soon. I see u still mad

    • Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

      So this means u mad or nah?

      • Molly August 27, 2014

    • Barb B**** August 27, 2014

      Has Iggy had a Solo hit yet? We all know Charlie XCX made Fancy.

      • DidItOnEm August 27, 2014

        Fancy went #1 because of streaming and payola but when it comes to Nicki yall starting to diss Anaconda because of it’s peak. Lmaoooo dumb f****

      • the voice August 27, 2014

        Iggy has had no song by herself that is a success.

        P**** by Iggy is a trashy song and video too.
        She is trailer trash so stop complaining about other females being s***.

    • musicMatters101 August 27, 2014

      I agree 100%

      The fact this is charting better than her better music. TERRIBLE. Even the annoying “Starships” is better than this mess.

    • The Real Lil kim August 27, 2014

      This is a lie. more like #39 on hot 100. My girl iggy sitting pretty at #5 with fancy and #8 with black widow.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 27, 2014

      Honey it’s a pop song

    • Sirdogg2011 August 30, 2014

      Yup that’s so true! The song debuted at #19 and in 3 weeks had dropped to #39!! Thanks to this streaming Bs she hits #2. I mean look at the iTunes only rose to 120k after the MTv awards.

      They trying to trow shade at it Iggy but she still top ten..

  2. DestinyBoston August 27, 2014

    • pon_de August 27, 2014

      Maybe she’ll FINALLY get that billboard 100 #1…which is difficult to get and not everybody has their credit LOL

  3. mrtruth August 27, 2014

    This whole “including streaming views” into a songs chart placement is beyond ridiculous! This song does not deserve that kind of accolade.

    • the voice August 28, 2014

      including radio spins is more ridiculous b.c labels can PAY for radio spins

  4. Islandboi242 August 27, 2014

    Streaming can make any s***** song a hit smh this s*** is ridiculous…. the song fell 20 spots just last week and now since the video is out and got a bunch of views cause its basically a porno its in the top 2 Lmao what a joke.

    • JOHNVIDAL August 27, 2014

      You took the words out of my mouth! I just wrote that in my comment 🙂

    • Mimi carey August 27, 2014

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 27, 2014

      Shut up

  12. JOHNVIDAL August 27, 2014

    The worse a song is, the higher it climbs on the charts. Add to that a video with semi porno tone and you have it. That´s how it works nowadays. Sadly (there are always a few exceptions).

    • Molly August 27, 2014

      For once i can agree with you this just shows music is really dead.

      • DidItOnEm August 27, 2014

        Lmaooo If “music is dead” stop praising Fancy and Black Widow and diss Anaconda then. also stop buying The New Classic and also stanning for your faves.

  13. Mark111 August 27, 2014

    The Uggly fans are mad, lol. They were just talking crap how Nick not having a top 10, now look. They better hope that album doesn’t outsale No Classic total in its first week, lol.

    • nicko August 27, 2014

      Nic has 11 top 10s. N she currently has 2 top 10s: Bang Bang and Ana

    • LB August 27, 2014

      Igor be like “who dat who dat N.i.c.k.i, with dat new hit new hit N.i.c.k.i”

  14. MRMinaj August 27, 2014

    SMH, I don’t understand why y’all are hating because streaming is included. It should be. The chart is a ranking of the most listened to songs in the nation. Should this chart not include radio, since people aren’t buying songs when they hear it on the radio? Nicki knows how charts work and she was smart and put out a great visual that got her to #2. Many props to her on her #2 hit!

    • CATFISH CAREY August 27, 2014


      • MRMinaj August 27, 2014

        I know you’re not talking about me, I’ve never dragged Iggy in my life. I actually support a full roster of working female rappers.

      • nicko August 27, 2014

        Fancy is only charting because of streaming.

      • Britney Stan August 27, 2014

        Excuse me fancy sold over 2 million unlike TRASHACONDA.

      • MRMinaj August 27, 2014

        Fancy came out in May, Anaconda came out this month and is already on its way to going Gold.

  15. Barb B**** August 27, 2014

    Yessssssssssss Nicki!

  16. Stephy. August 27, 2014

  17. nicko August 27, 2014

    She deserves it. Im tired of artists likr taylor or iggy who just have to PAY for they song to get played on radio. I respect hard work.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 27, 2014

      Nicki used videos…what the difference?

      • nicko August 27, 2014

        little krimlin, EVERYONE uses videos, ure stupid.

  18. Dirty Laundry August 27, 2014

    Yes streaming helped fancy stay number 1 but fancy also had the sales to back it up is Anaconda gold?

    • anaconda August 27, 2014

      In 2 weeks it’ll be gold (3rd gold single this era) you stay pressed boo. As fancy and no mediocre tumble out of the hot 100 Nicki smashes into the top 3.

      When will ogre get a SOLO top 50 song tho

    • Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

      Was Fancy Gold in its first few weeks?

    • Jansel August 27, 2014

      It sold 313,000 so far u dumb c***. Fancy didn’t sell that much that quick so sit tf down and give the queen her props. It will be gold in a week or 2 hun just wait on it.

  19. OMG Logic!!! August 27, 2014

    *Waits for the #1 that will never come. Onika’s “music” is garbage and no amount of saggy flappy buttcheek shaking will change that.

    • Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

      It soon come honey and you’ll be mad pressed as you are right now.

      • Jansel August 27, 2014

        She gone have more s*** to say once she actually gets a #1. I just dragged a lil kim fan last night. They clinging to a featured #1… like when will she get her own?

    • Barb B**** August 27, 2014

      Considering your name, you lack many forms of logic. A #1 doesn’t equal quality.

  20. RDK August 27, 2014

    Congtaz Nicki,nuff love and respect keep doing your thing sista.

  21. LB August 27, 2014

    That song is horrible but hey congrats Nicki I guess. I wish PnP did this since that was actually a good song.

    She was close but still no #1, next time eh Nicki.

    The Igor fans are steaming hotter than a pressing iron on the steam setting.

  22. LB August 27, 2014

    The igor fans pressed flatter than a crisp $20 dollar bill straignt from the Federal Reserve.

    They are madder than a Beyonce fan at a Rihanna concert

    More bothered than a girl patting her weave at a natural hair convention

    Fuming more than a Faux News anchor reporting on Obama winning the presidency

    Poor Igor fans

    • SURPRISE…….(DEC.13) August 27, 2014


    • Stephy. August 27, 2014

      LMAO!!!!!!! G

    • Yeah I Said It August 27, 2014

      A Beyonce fan at a Rihanna concert would be laughing the whole time at the on stage struggle. Mad is not the word.

  23. Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

    Bow to the Queen of Rap, and stream and purchase her single. I’m still streaming and gifted 2 this week on iTunes.

    • truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFlop) August 27, 2014

      Fu ck u

  24. Rosie August 27, 2014

    Congrats to her. Untortunately the borderline pornographic video that pretty much saved her career at this point, along with the horrible song (still the worst of 2014 and that’s a lot considering this was a HORRIBLE year in pop/rap) guarentees that she will no longer have any respect along the general public as a woman and an artist. Sad reality but it’s the truth.

    • Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

      If that were true then Bey, Rhi, Madonna, Britney, and many others would be gone t the dogs too. Stay pressed and mad boo.

      • Rosie August 27, 2014

        The difference is that none of them had to put their fake, silicone ass out everywhere just to save their career. At least Rihanna was arguably the biggest star in the world when Pour It Up was released, not to mention the dog was already dead and gone. And none of them are respected by most of the GP except for Bey and maybe Madonna. No one’s pressed, honey. I’m just speaking the truth.

      • Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

        No one was here for her before this year? WTF are u tawkin bout, this is her album era. She hasn’t put out an album in 2 and a half years. The Barbz are always here for Nic and all artists get buzz going when they have an album coming. Will u say the same about Rihanna now that she has no new music in a long time? #SoDamnStupid

    • Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

      How can Nicki be trying to save her career when she is the most successful female rapper of all time? No one’s taking that crown from her period. And you will deal.

      • Rosie August 27, 2014

        Did you forget how NO ONE was here for here before this year? Or how Pills N Plastic underperformed? Or how this was almost out of the top 40 before the video?

    • August 27, 2014

      you are dummer than that r***** truth (icki is the QWEEN OF PUSHBACK!! Iggy got her scuured honey. #IckiAFl i wouldn’t be surprise if you and him is one of the same.

    • BOOBIE August 27, 2014

      @Rosie Lmfaooo ho who are you to decide what the consensus of the general public is? There are still many people who respect Nicki…one s*** video will not change that unless you have a 15 inch stick up your a***. If the general public had no respect for her she wouldn’t be #2 and #9 on Billboard right now. You can tell by the way you comment that you’re just a hater who will belittle Nicki’s success no matter how it’s achieved. NOW SIT AND SEETH HO!

  25. Rosie August 27, 2014

    But dead at the Bratz coming for Fancy now just because of a Clear Channel On The Verge program they’re doing with many new artists on pop radio? It’s not Iggy’s fault that her song was the one that blew up from it. And while it was #1 they were dragging it for streaming when that’s literally the only reason Anaconda charted that high, period.

    • Kween Ebony August 27, 2014

      Anaconda sales were good this week. 6th best selling digital song. Two, the song is still #4 and #69 on iTunes. And it continues to get more spins on radio. So, no it’s not only due to streams. Bye. Stay pressed, and have a nice life!

      • Rosie August 27, 2014

        Can you even read? Even Billboard says it’s peak is solely due to streaming. If it only got regular views or so with those sales it would barely be scratching the top 10.

    • BOOBIE August 27, 2014

      @Rosie, …But why are you dragging the process of streaming. It’s a HUGE part of the music industry. You act as if people are being forced to stream her song. They CHOOSE to watch her video for Anaconda and they CHOOSE to stream it on Spotify etc. Just like Fancy benefit majorly from STREAMING. Fancy just barely cracked the 3 million sales mark. And yet it stayed #1 for 7 weeks. Usually songs that stay at #1 for that long are at 5 million+. Same thing for Rude by MAGIC!. Nicki’s Anaconda has been selling well for 3 weeks straight. 15k-18k DAILY. So chill with your streaming comments like it’s such a bad thing.

  26. Yeah I Said It August 27, 2014

    I like Nicki so well done. I honestly don’t see this Ugly person as threat she’ll be gone by next year. Barbz should allow it.

  27. Kween Ebony August 27, 2014

    The amount of hate this woman gets it crazy! You guys have nothing better to do than bash her why? Go read a book or something. Most of you complaining that the song wouldn’t have went top 10 without the video are in denial. The song is the 6th best selling song for the week. The song is NOW at #4 of iTunes while the clean version sits in the top 70. So, Yes it would have went top 10 without a crazy video.

    Two, idk why you guys are so quick to bring up Iggy when you trying to shade Nicki. Did we forget Billboard admitted that Clear Channel is basically the reason Fancy was successful, it flopped for two months before the deal even while it had a video out. Then once it finally made it to #1 it only stayed there due to guess what STREAMS! When radio stopped playing it as much and sales went down… Streams helped keep it in the top 10 for so long! So stop hating, its pathetic!

    • Rosie August 27, 2014

      Source for Billboard? Fancy wasn’t even successful on radio before the video was released, then almost right afterwards it went top 10 on iTunes and started booming on YouTube/Spotify. At least Iggy had all three when Fancy went #1. At least 90% of Anaconda’s Hot 100 points come from VEVO.

      • Kween Ebony August 27, 2014

        You’re saying she had all three when she clearly didn’t. Fancy didn’t chart for two months after release. Again, the video’s views didn’t increase UNTIL clear channel. The article explaining how clear channel is EVERYWHERE! You have google, use it!

      • Rosie August 27, 2014

        Sis I used google, it doesn’t exist unless you give me receipts. And Fancy was already charting the week it debuted. It took off after the video, it didn’t even peak on radio until it was #1 on the Hot 100 for WEEKS.
        At least Fancy was selling 200K+ when it charted that high and didn’t have 80% of its views coming from horny males watching it on mute.

    • Rosie August 27, 2014

      Nowhere as pornographic but drag?

    • Kween Ebony August 27, 2014

      Not Iggy shaking her ass for some old guy. And barely clothed in the ‘Work’ video. But, that’s none of my business though!

  28. Dem Lessors August 27, 2014

    Yusss Queen Onika, make them haters MUD, hahahaha! Flopaconda, how bishes?!


    Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” blasts in at No. 1, selling 544,000 downloads in its first week — the biggest sales week of 2014 and the fourth-largest debut week ever.

    Taylor Swift beat the p*** video:)

    • B**** I Can’t Even Spell Welfare August 27, 2014

      Did you catch that Swift performance at the VMA’s? LOL

      Horrible per usual. Oh yeah, the song is garbage too.

      • TAYLOR SWIFT IS BILLBOARD NUMBER 1 August 28, 2014

        No “Anaconda’ is pure garbage. How many times can you listen to that song. It’s awful.

        Taylor’s performance was great and fun!

  30. No Name August 27, 2014

    All I can say is this is like Bey’s Drunk In Love.
    #2 because of Streaming..
    No shade.
    As a fan, it makes me sad that she needs to realease a video with all that ass. Pills N Potions deserves an achievement like this!!!

    • NICKIMINAJ QUEEN August 27, 2014

      nobody was taking pills n potion thou it was summer time and nobody want to hear that song during the summer it still went gold thou so im not really bother about it this shows nicki can still go top 10 by herself without a feature not like iggy

    • BOOBIE August 27, 2014

      The song has been selling 15k-20k+ digitally every day. It’s not all from streaming.

  31. Dem Lessors August 27, 2014

    The first comment, ROFLOLOLOL. She mad!

  32. The Real Lil kim August 27, 2014

    TGJ This is a lie and you know it.Nicki Minaj single Anaconda is more like #39 on hot 100. My girl iggy though is sitting pretty at #5 with fancy and #8 with black widow. Like Nicki said herself (Do Yo F****** Research).

    • NICKIMINAJ QUEEN August 27, 2014

      what are you talking about pls update your information

      • Kween Ebony August 27, 2014

        Lmaoooooo!!! They’re use to having OUTDATED information. Which is why they still try and hold onto Kim’s year 700AD ass achievements!

    • Bey-Minaj August 27, 2014

      Dead at you bringing last week’s receipt. This week hunty, Fancy is out of the top 10 and Anaconda is sitting pretty at #2.

  33. FutureCIARA August 27, 2014

    DEADx3 at the fact that yall won’t acknowledge the Generic Mess that is ‘Shake It Off’ blocked Anaconda from #1!!!!!

  34. Rosie August 27, 2014

    Shake It Off blocked it because it is the better song. Critics and most of the GP agree.

    • CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

      Shake it off went number 1 because of taylor though. It’s giving me roar-tease.

    • FutureCIARA August 27, 2014

      Both songs suck TBH!


      Taylor Swift’s song is way better! Anyone with the sense of hearing would have to agree!

      Shake It Off is the worst song in the Billboard top 5 right now. It’s not catchy. It’s not memorable. The video is offensive. And the only reason it’s #1 is because it’s Taylor freaking Swift.

      • TAYLOR SWIFT IS BILLBOARD NUMBER 1 August 28, 2014

        The video is offensive? And anaconda isn’t?? anaconda does what shake it off does, but 1 million more times worse! is only at 2, because of the p*** video.

        Also I think shake it off is catchy, but that is subjective to everyone’s taste.

      • BOOBIE August 28, 2014

        No sweetly…I’m not offended by semi naked woman. I don’t have a giant stick up my ass. I am however offended by appropriation of black culture by stars of Taylor swifts caliber. And that’s exactly what her Shake It Off video did. Absconde may be really sexxxy but I’m not offended by it. I doubt you’re offended either.

      • TAYLOR SWIFT IS BILLBOARD NUMBER 1 August 28, 2014

        So because Taylor is white and has twerking in her video, that’s offensive.. but cause Nicki isn’t white, that’s not offensive. Taylor can’t help being white you know.
        I’d rather Taylor didn’t have sexual dancing in her videos, but everyone these days seems to be going down that route.

      • BOOBIE August 28, 2014

        I’m over this conversation. Apparently You don’t understand what appropriation is. And that’s fine. Let the bish get her money.


      Its the act of setting apart or taking for one’s own use?
      I didn’t know its meaning.. So you’re saying she’s using black culture, and using it to make money for herself?
      To me, its just dance moves… That’s all.. but maybe you just like being offended.

    Black widow will not be seeing #1 ever. Taylor will pull a roar while she fills in for the hot 100 slayage that rih will have in a bit.

  36. FutureCIARA August 27, 2014

    Rihanna single is coming VERY SOON, I feel it in my bones!

  37. CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

    They lowered the my everything projections to 160k! Death!!!!!

    • the voice August 27, 2014

      LMAO!!! Nicki & Taylor are about to win 2014.

    • Rosie August 27, 2014

      All that promo, three top ten hits (at the same time!), and can’t even outsell Ultraviolence. Mess.

  38. the voice August 27, 2014

    COngrats Nicki. This song is catchy.

    As long as sell sells more than Ariana & Iggy her first week will be a SUCCESS.

    Ariana is suppose to be the biggest female artist after Taylor… Let’s see what happens.

    • CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

      She’s going to debut with less than Lana. Kiiii

  39. LIL’ KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. August 27, 2014

    Let’s not forget that this basic heffa’s songs are trash. Her Billboard hits include ear cancer music like

    Stupid H**
    Roman in Moscow
    Roman’s Revenge
    Roman Reloaded

    This b**** makes history only on paper, but she has no classics and her music has no real cultural impact. Her music is forgettable trash, like most pop artists. Lil’ Kim has actual hits that have stood the test of time. Lil’ Kim is the Queen of Rap. Missy Elliott is the Queen of Hip Hop. Nicki Minaj is a peasant.

    • CherylSoldierr August 27, 2014

      Yet lil Kims only current claim to relevance are nicki diss tracks

      • LIL’ KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. August 27, 2014

        Shut up! The Queen of Rap Lil’ Kim is about to slay Nicki’s basic existence with her mixtape in 15 days!!!

    • LOL August 27, 2014


      • LIL’ KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. August 27, 2014

        I know you’re not talking about plastic. Focus on your fave’s fake cement block ass that stays static when she tries to twerk.

        Ya fave is TRASH! Lil’ Kim is the critically acclaimed Queen of Rap!

    • BOOBIE August 27, 2014

      Lmfao ho you are soooo pressed and I’m loving it! Superbass is a classic. Moment 4 Life is a classic. Did It on Em is a classic. Bedrock is a classic. Even Your Love is a classic. And Starships will be talked about years from now…whether good or bad. And her features slay 99 percent of the time. Lil Kim is the Queen of Making a Fool of Herself and Botched Plastic Surgery. Missy is the Queen of Party Hip Hop, and Nicki Minaj is on top and is the most successfuly female rapper of ALL-TIME. But none of them are the Queen of ANYTHING except the aforementioned.

      • LIL’ KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. August 27, 2014

        Did you just called Super Bass and Moment for Life classics? You are a moron. I love how you said Starships will be talked about (for good or bad). You know your fave’s music is trash! People with intellect hate her music. Only dumb, young people like her.

        Lil’ Kim = The Queen of Rap
        Missy Elliott = The Queen of Hip Hop
        Nicki Minaj = The Queen of Cement Injections in the B***.

      • BOOBIE August 28, 2014

        That’s exactly what I said. They’re NEW classics. Waaaaittttt. People with intellect hate Nicki? If that’s the case then they hate Lil Kim too! The ho was nasty and still is nasty well into her 40s!!! Her face is trashed. Her weave is ashy and she never wrote her own music! And dumb young people only buy her music? Okay that’s fine because that’s where the money is! They’ll all grow up to be “intellectuals”… Kim has a few classics , maybe 3 or 4 but she isn’t Queen!!! If she was reigning Queen she would be able to sell over 2000 copies on PayPal. The only time she gets talked about is if she has a baby, or talks about Nicki Minaj. While Nicki was at the VMAs on stage performing 3 times…Kim was at home on Twitter arguing with K. Michelle. That’s not what Queens do!

    @Truth should be trying to revive kim’s career right now.

  43. nicko August 27, 2014

    the fact that Nic has sold more records than kim n igloo combined is hilarious ! 😉

  45. fools gold August 27, 2014

    lmao to people thinking Iggy is a better rapper than Nicki just because she got a number one on billboard. Haha. You don’t really believe that. That s*** all politics anyway. who cares aboyt a number 1, they all usually garbage. At least I can listen to Nicki’s.

  46. jay August 27, 2014

    Why are people saying this is only because of the video… yes the video is a big part of it, but Anaconda has almost sold 300,000 copies in less than 2 weeks on itunes, and it also starting to be played on the radio way more, which also is a factor. no song (besides the harlem shake because of all the harlem shake videos) can jump that high solely off of the video, people are just trying to downplay a huge accomplishment for an female rapper and a successful music artist.

    • Bey-Minaj August 28, 2014

      They can hate all they want, numbers don’t lie. The Barbz got the receipts to prove it.

  47. No Name August 28, 2014

    As a rap artist, her bars should be her asset, not that her ASSet is her bars… you know.

    • the voice August 28, 2014

      tell that to Iggy too. She got a song called p****

  48. Mimi August 28, 2014

    Welldone Minajesty. I smell a massacre with this pink print era. May God be with you and grant you a no 1 and other goodies that follow.Amen

  49. Bey-Minaj September 3, 2014

    Billboard editorial director Bill Werde says digital data, which includes the Spotify and YouTube data, would account for 20-35 percent of how it ranks songs’ performance on a typical week. So traditional metrics like sales and airplay still take the lion’s hare
