Nicki Minaj & Fergie Rock iTunes With New Releases / Iggy Azalea Sizzles On The ‘Hot 100’

Published: Thursday 27th Nov 2014 by David


Sales of her new project ‘Reclassified’ may have been less than stellar, but it seem it’ll take more than a commercially unsuccessful EP to kill Iggy Azalea‘s chart vibe.

For, those who laughed at her supposed struggle to sell albums should think twice before doing so at her success on a singles front, especially now that her latest effort ‘Beg For It’ has risen 14 spots on the ‘Billboard Hot 100‘ in the last week!

Lifted from the ill-fated ‘Reclassified’, ‘Beg‘ now sits pretty at #35 thanks to performances whipped up for ‘Saturday Night Live‘ and ‘The American Music Awards.’

Undoubtedly impressed by her Bryan Tanaka-backed live servings, the general public threw support behind the bop, pushing it inside the Top 40 after taking her triple Platinum jam ‘Fancy’ to #1 earlier this year.

Meanwhile, her genre sister Fergie holds the #16 spot on iTunes USA with her comeback single ‘L.A. Love’, reaching the commendable spot after it peaked at #36 on the ‘Billboard Hot 100′ and #5 on the ‘Australian Urban‘ chart.

Heading back to iTunes, ‘Bed of Lies‘ rapper Nicki Minaj dominates the chart with five entries.

Four years after her debut album ‘Pink Friday‘ moved 1 million units in its first month of release, Minaj’s ‘Bang Bang‘ sits at #14, while her remix of Beyonce’s ‘Flawless’  occupies the #30 spot.

Meanwhile, her Hip Hop bop ‘Only’ shows up to the chart party and pulls up a chair at #39, while ‘Lies’ sits at #55, 18 spots above the ‘Beyonce (Platinum Edition‘ version of the aforementioned ‘Flawless.’

  3. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT November 27, 2014

    No David. Sorry, but album sales are what makes an artist into greatness. She joins the ranks with the likes of Pitbull and Flo Rida. She’s a female so fashion will keep her afloat.

    • Evil blogger November 27, 2014

      I agree we will see if the 2nd album will do better if not she will just join them

  4. sleazy November 27, 2014

  5. BarbieSoFetch November 27, 2014

    Oh David. You try so hard to be nice to this flop but you fail because you can’t defend the fact that she can’t sell albums. Pothang.

    • POR November 28, 2014

      you sound pressed. meanwhile #1GGY remains unbothered with her history breaking #1 single and best selling hip hop album released this year while even the new tracks from her reissue enter the top 40 on Hot 100 (The Boys? Freedom? High School? Hmmmm) hahahah #1GGY wins again!!!

    • POR November 28, 2014

      the fact that Fergie Ferg will most likely struggle to outsell The New Classic lmfao, aint nobody tryna buy a 40 year old struggle bops

  7. JOHNVIDAL November 27, 2014

    It was so obvious there wasn´t going to be a great response to Gwen Stefani and Fergie singles/albums. They only had one era, and those weren´t that successful or influential to begin with. Now that 7-10 years have gone by… you already know. What´s funny is that for TGJ this single by Fergie is doing well but when artists who have done it all and are here since the 80s or 1990 and have had a lot of albums and eras (which causes a natural decline due to the public´s exhaustion) still do even better than this, then for TGJ that is just moderate success at best or not satisfying enough 🙂

    • Brian310 November 27, 2014

      OMG here goes the complaining and mentioning of older artist when they haven’t talked bad about that artist in a long time, she had her time now get over it and support new acts or go and listen to her discography on your mobile device quit complaining it’s getting annoying.

      • JOHNVIDAL November 28, 2014

        Hmmm… Gwen Stefani and Fergie new artists for example you mean? LOL
        I support many new artists thank u very much. I also see how mainstream music is crap compared to what it was and the number of mediocre artists topping the charts is in an all time high. Can´t I say that? Or talk about Sam´s biased ways? I was comparing how he treats veterans with each other, not even a veteran with a new artist. Next time try to make more sense or admit truths and move on.

  8. DontPhunkWithMyFerg November 27, 2014

    The struggle to uplift this flop. David boo, stick to stanning for Onika, she’s talented and can sell.

  9. Nicki is queen!!! November 27, 2014

    My Queen is everywhere! When Hey Mama’s released as a single, which it should, there’ll be another spot in Nickis itunes domination. Then when Throw $um Mo (whatever the spelling is) is released we’ll have another. Then when the vids drop for Only & BOL we’ll ascend as well. QUEEN!!!

    • Nicki is queen!!! November 27, 2014

      & THEN 12.15!! I’m beyond ready!!

      • Nicki Is Queen November 27, 2014

        YASS B****!! I CANT WAIT!!

  10. Musika November 27, 2014

    Congrats Iggy! And I hope Nicki also gets her 1st #1 with Bed of Lies. I actually like these sorts of songs from her. It reminded me of Your Love from her Pink Friday album. Hope she returns to that route again. She doesn’t need to go super-dark, just tone down the pop a little.

  11. sleazy November 27, 2014

    Fergie performed her song once its top 20 itunes its urban and it will rise next week give her a break!! Janelle monae is your ppic like have a seat. she been absent for years Thats a major risk you had one album and you been gone for yeara to come back no one knows how the audience will take to them

    • JOHNVIDAL November 27, 2014

      Two different subjects. Janelle is in another league talent wise. We are discussing sales (or streams or whatever s*** is going on right now in this mediocre mainstream industry) and how Sam sees some singles as successful while other singles which did better underperformed in his opinion.
      Janelle has not one commercial single out or has ever had really, Fergie is supposed to be going for mainstream and pop radio with this (meaning nowadays mediocre singles charts).

      • Cupid November 27, 2014

        Fergie never claimed to be trying to go “mainstream”. She choose to release new music to support the sound that artist from her area are trying to bring to the industry.

  12. Realest November 27, 2014

    It’s thanksgiving and im sure all the artists are thankful that they are blessed to do their thing.. No tea, no shade but none are flops because they’re being talked about and are currently above hundreds of artists trying to make it. So kudos to all!

  13. Nicki Is Queen November 27, 2014

    YASS onika always dominates charts! she just needs to add three more songs to break her own record of having seven songs on billboard right? just waiting for 12.15!

    • the voice November 27, 2014

      Nicki need to be focused on making sure her label sends BED OF LIES to pop radio and UK/European & Australian radio.
      She can break records later. She need that good song to top charts all over the world with radio deal.

      • nicko November 27, 2014

        Shes already done that with Starships, Pound The Alarm n even Anaconda.

    • jamilaa December 2, 2014

      UMMM!! sorry to kill your vibe but those charts are for iTunes not hot 100! ooops

  14. Taylor swift number 1 fan!! November 27, 2014

    Blank space is number 1 for the second week on the hot 100

    • biting truth November 27, 2014

      Nobody cares. You’re out of place here. Go find some cheesy pop music blog to queen out with your dorky, faggotity Taylor Swift worship.

    • RihHive November 27, 2014

      I wasnt a Taylor Swift fan until this album. These girls get mad now that Taylor Swift is full on POP and dominating the radio channels that they favs usually would.

    • Keri Qween November 27, 2014

      Lol i love how random you are

      • Taylor swift number 1 fan!! November 27, 2014


    • RCi November 27, 2014

      Taylor fan’s aren’t welcome here. We don’t have time for old rich white folks over here.

  15. DanYiel Teflon November 27, 2014

    Bed Of Lies? Chile I guess her style isn’t going anywhere she’s a singles artist which is why she has 767 singles added to each damn chart & it’s laughable cuz it’s her only way to BE SEEN!! Everyone saying 12-15 is that her album release date? Not many of the folks will be buying she isn’t a GRAND ARTIST!! I rest my case Tricki GarBagh is WACK!!

    • BeyMaraj November 27, 2014

      And is that why you up here crying? the fact of the matter remains Uggly’s album ‘Remessified’ flopped and bombed straight to hell and back.

    • Nicki is queen!!! November 27, 2014

      Or maybe people actually wanna work with her unlike Piggy & Ling Ling. Ain’t NOBODY got ringing them up for a feature, Ling just invites herself with her Autorap app quality.

      • Nicki is queen!!! November 27, 2014

        Got wasn’t supposed to be there but you get my point
