Chart Check: Nicki Minaj’s ‘Only’ Goes ‘Gold’ / Melissa Steel Reaches New Streaming Milestone


New year, new moves.

The above may be the sentiment held by chart topping performers Nicki Minaj and Melissa Steel this week, set to rock 2015 with many an impressive career move following the success of their latest releases!

Get in the know, below…

With little support from ‘Top 40′ radio, Hip Hop’s Minaj saw her latest single ‘Only’ surpass sales of 530,436 units before 2014’s end, and now sees it on course to reach the 600,000 mark within a matter of weeks.

Quite interestingly, the cut is now selling at a faster rate than the ‘Top 40’ backed ‘Beg For It‘ by Iggy Azalea which reached sales of 503,390 units in the same week ‘Only‘ reached the 530,000 mark.

Elsewhere, the British chart-slayer that is Melissa Steel celebrates the success of her smash hit single ‘Kisses for Breakfast‘ this year.

For, as of January 2nd 2015, the cut’s official video has been watched for a total of 30 years, a digital milestone that follows the song’s Top Ten peak in the UK.

Since dropping six months ago, ‘Breakfast’s video has been viewed 5,593,624 times on YouTube alone, shared 11,027 times and driving 3,611 new subscribers to the singer’s official channel on the video sharing platform.

In other chart news, Idina Menzel‘s festive album ‘Holiday Wishes‘ reaches US sales of 370,000 units while global sales of Ariana Grande‘s ‘My Everything’ touches down at the 1,133,000 unit mark.

In R&B land, Beyonce’s self-titled new album crosses the 5 million barrier worldwide while Elijah Blake‘s second EP ‘Drift’ reaches US sales of 12,321 units.

  3. Kat Slayluna January 4, 2015

    So now we know who David’s faves for 2015 are.
    2NE1 and CL, this Melissa girl, Elijah and Rita. Still no Jasmine V?

    • Madame Mimi January 4, 2015

      I noticed he did a thread on Logic too so it’ll probably change in a few months.

    • TheElusiveLamb January 4, 2015

      I just learned about Jasmine V last week through her love for Alicia Keys and she’s managed under the Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber manager guy. She seems to have a bright future.

    • What? January 4, 2015

      Jasmine V has no talent. She is a weak performer. Tinashe and Sevyn Streeter are better artist

  4. CATFISH CAREY January 4, 2015


  5. Bad Gyal Rita January 4, 2015

    Beyonce sold 5 million and UNA is still struggling to get past 2.

  6. queennicki January 4, 2015

    Do any of y’all have jobs? Y’all be quick to come on a post about someone you don’t care for (Nicki) she is winning just respect that there was no female rappers doing charts like her when she came out so stop it!! The main people dissing her lowkey love her!! Go get lil Kim career together

    Slay Queen!!! Slay for dear life!!! *plays Win Again*

  15. TheElusiveLamb January 4, 2015

    I thought Beyoncé was over 4.5 million by now and I was right. Iggy and Nicki going gold the same week is amazing for girl power and female hip-hop, so I’m happy for that. As for my Princess Ariana, I’m so happy for her. I just hope the album goes platinum in the USA alone as well. Congratulations to all.

  16. Cake like Lady GaGa January 4, 2015

    Thank you Jessie J for giving Nicki her first grammy nomination, after 98541254786663 years in the industry. This will be her last nomination though because the PinkShit is trash, it won’t get a single nomination.

    • FixItJesus January 4, 2015

      B**** try again. Nicki received a nomination off of her FIRST album. You should be worried about Queen Madge using Gagas albums as coasters….

      • Cake like Lady GaGa January 4, 2015

        Lol b**** u TRIED it!!! Nicki has never been nominated. SIT

      • Applause January 4, 2015

        She’ll never win one tho

    • TRUTH SERUM January 4, 2015

      Gaga please release another album so that your miserable depressed fans will have a reason to live.

    • Rosie January 4, 2015

      And F*** should thank Tony for giving what will probably be the last major awards nomination of her career. Can’t wait for Barbra to win next month!

  17. Applause January 4, 2015

    Too the album is flopping worldwide ahaha

  18. Applause January 4, 2015

    @Cake has me in tears drag Flopnika

  19. Applause January 4, 2015

    Name Nickis #1 hit?

  20. Confessions Of A Good Kisser January 4, 2015

    Grammyless Perry stans mad that their fave has NEVER won a Grammy.

  21. Prismatic January 4, 2015

    How did Beyoncé go from 3.4 million to 5 million overnight? Something in the buttermilk ain’t clean….

  22. DanYiel Teflon January 4, 2015

    Congrats Beyoncé & Ariana Grande! Tricki Garbage gold well if it floats ya boat!! Carry on!!

  23. Realest January 4, 2015

    I just wanna see TGJ post on how GREAT AND MONUMENTAL the PinkPrint is. They will have these lil idiots on here barking back and forth about sales and chart positions but I’ve not seen them make one post about the actual music quality itself. Hmm

    • Iggy, Queen of the pre op trannys January 4, 2015

      Shut the f*** up you miserable b****, The Pinkprint slayed Kim and floppgy. now deal

  24. Mark111 January 4, 2015

    That’s a good question. Sure it’s passed 4 million ww, but where that other mill come from beats me.

  25. Terry B January 4, 2015

    I believe that Beyonce has shipped 5 million WW and has sold around 4M. & dont act like “Beg For It” is a hit, it barely gets radio play so the sales are great. As far as “Only” it literally has every popular urban feature artist on it, it should be selling this if not more.

    • We Found Rihanna January 4, 2015

      Beg For Radio Play (It) has POP radio support. POP radio is mostly listened to, & streamed by the masses dummy. POP is a bigger genre than a RAP category & songs that are fully RAP Like Only for example. POP sells more than Urban, now the tables have turned & Nicki is outselling Piggy

  26. Rima January 4, 2015

    Iggys beg for it is gold without a video.

    • Iggy, Queen of the pre op trannys January 4, 2015

      It had major pro mo to help it tho, like that flop performance at SNL. Still gagging at that btw.

      • We Found Rihanna January 4, 2015

        & Beg For Radio Play has POP radio support & being played on Top 40 Radio. Nicki don’t have that)

  27. CherylSoldierr January 4, 2015

    My good sis cake is ruthless this morning! Yaaaas!!

  28. Mark111 January 4, 2015

    I hear Beg For It on the radi all the time. I’m sure it’s not charting well is because there isn’t a video. Def Jam scrapped the whole era because the ep flopped, but the song will push her over to 2015 til her next album.

    • CherylSoldierr January 4, 2015

      Bye! I’ve never heard that trash on top 40

      • Mark111 January 4, 2015

        Kiss FM is top 40.

  29. coolness January 4, 2015

    Congrats to all.

  30. metzo January 4, 2015

    Lol. I thought Beyonce would never outsell unapologetic? HAHAAA. #Carry On !

  31. metzo January 4, 2015

    An RnB album selling over 5 Million copies. This hasn’t happened since 2009 (I am… Sasha Fierce). Pretty Awesome

    • CherylSoldierr January 4, 2015

      Oops drag!

  32. BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

    5mill in a year & 3wks with minimal promo. Slay mama slay!!

  33. Tyler January 4, 2015

    Beyonce outsold UNA in one year alone.
    Here’s a Pepsi…You can stop sippin on that haterade.

  34. Rosie January 4, 2015

    Why does this site hate Iggy so much now? BFI sold decently for a single that didn’t even go top 10 on radio. Not amazing, but it’ll be taken considering how even single sales have declined this year.
    Only’s sales are as good as expected since its #1 on irs format.

    • Iggy, Queen of the pre op trannys January 4, 2015

      Because floppgy sucks b****!

    • Slayty Perry (Super Bowl Queen) January 4, 2015

      Because the stan for Nicki and Barbz hate every female rapper who is/has ever seen a Hot 100 chart

      • We Found Rihanna January 5, 2015

        Iggy? Rapper? Kiiii

  35. BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

    I’m here for the navy’s meltdowns!! So 4 out of 5 albums to sell 5mill+ WW for the local flop vs just 2 out of 7 for the global icon!! #NavyLogic

    • metzo January 4, 2015

      Lmaoooo!! Right??! I can’t

      • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

        Comeback to twitter. Why did you leave??:(

  36. Keri Qween January 4, 2015

    When did Beyonce reach 5 million I need receipts ASAP

  37. Nineteen Eighty Nine January 4, 2015

    Chart news reported Beyoncé at 3,400,000 ww just LAST MONTH. Someone please explain to me where 5,000,000 came from!!! THE INFLATION!!!

    • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

      Twitter account<<<<official chart report counted by credible industry sources!!

      • Nineteen Eighty Nine January 4, 2015

        Oh so now chartnews isn’t a reputable source? Lol! It is any other time because they just pull their info from OFFICIAL websites. Beyonce sold 3.4 and SHIPPED the rest! The INFLATION!!!

      • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

        Sis chartnews is not a reliable source. They get their info from media traffic who is not a reliable source!! The 5mill statistic comes from UK’s official chart(UK’s version of BB) which is reliable!! BTW even without an up to date report your common sense should just automatically kick in & let you know that if she sold 3mill by the end of Dec/beginning of Jan & BB reports that she sold 800k this year then how is it that she only sold 3.4 mill??

      • Nineteen Eighty Nine January 4, 2015

        The excuses! The INFLATION! No way in hell she sold 5 million. Now Taylor sold 5.1 million easily! Or should I say 10 million? Kiii #inflateforthegods

      • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

        Not an excuse its logic!! But if Beyoncé has you pressed enough to ignore an official chart report & take a twitter account as a credible source then I’m done trying to have a logical conversation with you.
        *P.S. good for Taylor Swift who I know you dnt really Stan for!!

      • Nineteen Eighty Nine January 4, 2015


  38. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 4, 2015

    Unapologetic sold 4m WW, but according to the fleas, it didn’t do well. If we’re doing comparisons again, then lets talk about singles, especially the chart positions of the coveted hot 100 which Rihanna rules with an iron fist. The gays are at it again. This is getting boring.

    • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

      Unapologetic sold 3.472million WW & SHIPPED 4.5millionWW!!

      • Nineteen Eighty Nine January 4, 2015

        Same with Beyoncé SHIPPING 5 million

  39. Nineteen Eighty Nine January 4, 2015

    Anyway, Taylor has OFFICIALLY sold 5,121,000 in 2.5 months! No smoke & mirrors or shipping here!!

  40. african music lover January 4, 2015

    I need the receipt of bey selling 5 mill….

  41. Blue Ivy Rodriguez January 4, 2015

    It didn’t. The hive are celebrating shipments and if that’s the case then UNA actually sold 4.5 million WW meaning that Beyoncé sold around the same amount. I love how out of all that dropped, you are comparing Beyoncé to Rihanna, you say she has no talent and yet her name is always in their mouths lol. What about TS? Who out charted, outsold and made an impact in the last quarter of the year than anything BaddieBey released? Perhaps if Bey discounts and sells her LP in 7/11 stores then maybe her fans would throw their coins in the air instead of their legs.

    • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

      Official chart source>>your wrong opinion

    • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

      Wikipedia receipts?? Is that what you’ve resorted to?? & how in the hell is Beyoncé Rihanna’s lesser?? In touring?? No! Moneymaking?? No! Album sales?? No! Talent?? No!! Brand?? No!! Acclaim?? No!! So outside of the singles department what does rihanna beat Beyoncé @?? Body count maybe?? Oh yeah that’s it!! Girl just continue on with your meltdown!!

  42. Charlieyoncé January 4, 2015


  43. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 4, 2015

    And Rihanna achieved that 120-199m feat in only 10 years. Now how long has Bey been in the game again? Lol – No wonder she hates Rihanna. Riri is on the Eagles and U2’s level.

    • BossB*tchBeyoncé January 4, 2015

      Well she’s only been in the game as a solo artist for 10 yrs as well during which time she released 5albums & sold 140million records.

  44. LB January 4, 2015

    I don’t like Only, I think it is one of the worst songs Nicki has ever recorded, beg for it is most definitely better. But for Only, an urban single selling faster than a pop single, in this case, beg for it, is quite impressive. Overall, both women are making subpar music but kudos to them for making strides in the male dominated rap/hip hop genre.

    The British music scene is on fire. Two of my fav albums I purchased last year were by British acts (Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran), looking forward to Tamera Foster, Emeli Sande, Fleur East and this girl Melissa sounds talented, looking forward to it.

    Ariana Grande crossed the 1 million mark, good for her, that is a gain from her previous album which barely if at all crossed the 1 million mark. Congratulations to her.

    I believe Beyonce shipped 5 million WW and sold 4 million WW, but whatever the case, good for her. Last year was her year, congrats to her.

    • Iggy, Queen of the pre op trannys January 4, 2015

      The General public seems to like “Only” seeing as how it just went gold…

      • LB January 4, 2015

        That’s true, I don’t know, I feel the general public likes anything Nicki Minaj atm. I mean Anaconda was a hit for crying out loud.

      • Iggy, Queen of the pre op trannys January 4, 2015

        The people want club bangers and Nicki is serving them effortlessly.

  45. LB January 4, 2015

    @Blue Ivy

    It is possible Beyonce did sell 5 million WW.

    By the way, Unapologetic sold 4 million WW and Talk That Talk sold 5.5 million WW,

    Rihanna’s latest album, “Talk That Talk,” had worldwide sales of more than 5.5 million units and brought Rihanna’s worldwide album sales to more than 37 million.

    • Nineteen Eighty Nine January 4, 2015

      LOL!!! More inflation!!!

  46. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 4, 2015

    I’m having meltdowns??? And didn’t you use Wikipedia as well? LMFAO!!!! The numbers speak for themselves. CTFU… Bish stop. You’re embarrassing yourself. Even metzo is silent. Give it a rest already.

    • BossB*tchBeyonce January 4, 2015

      I didnt say you were having a meltdown but i dont disagree with the statement. And no i didnt use wikipedia the 5mill stat came from the official chart company(uk version of BB) not a twitter account and not wikipedia. And yes the numbers do speak for themselves!! the touring stats the record sales the album sales the networth the number of awards and nominations the metric scores. Yes they definitely do speak for themselves.

  47. Ozzy January 4, 2015

    DEATHHH at the navy clocking the H**’s inflated celebration. When Beys album sold under 4 Mil….

  48. Iggy, Queen of the pre op trannys January 4, 2015

    Slay Nicki and Queen Taylor

  49. Hexx January 4, 2015

    I wounder how much fraudyonce sold without streams

  50. Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! January 4, 2015

    WW sales: @taylorswift13, “1989” 502,000 (5,121,000 total). In 9 weeks

    • CATFISH CAREY January 4, 2015


      • Taylor swifts number 1 fan!! January 4, 2015

        I don’t think the album will sell 10 million, but would be amazing if it did 🙂 8-9 million would be just fine.

  51. Tyler January 4, 2015

    Either way “Beyonce”, a year old album, outsold RihAbused latest album….which came out over 2 years ago. So wtf is the R****** Navy trying to prove idk. The self drag!!!

    • Mark111 January 4, 2015

      Lol, I’m not going to fight, but they sold the same. If you think Unapologetic sat amd sold nothing a whole year, then you’re the joke. Her album hasn’t been counted since December of 2013. I wanna know where Beyonce sold another million at when she only sold 800K in the US all of 2013 and the rerelease sold a lil over 150k.

      • Tyler January 4, 2015

        LOL I’m not going to go back and forth with you either. Because even if both albums did supposedly sell around the same amount Unapologetic STILL DEBUTED 2 YEARS BEFORE Beyonce DID. So the jokes on you. That’s what you’re failing to realize.

  52. Tyler January 4, 2015

    @I Stand For “Talent”

    Wtf do you mean how long has Beyonce been in the game?
    The last time I checked, her SOLO career began 12 years ago.
    Oh, or are we counting DC albums too now…because we can do that if u want.

    • Mark111 January 4, 2015

      Oh I forgot Usher and JT.

  53. Tyler January 4, 2015


    Yeah, outside of the singles department the only thing Rihanna beats The Queen Bey in is body count.

    Just ask CB, Drake, Ashton Kutcher, and Meek Mill

    • Mark111 January 4, 2015

      If you want to do rumors, then Bey been with Marquis Houston, a Jagged Edge memeber, Case, some high school guy, Jay and her body guard. Lol, see how rumors work?

    • BossB*tchBeyonce January 4, 2015

      That body count chile that body count!! Beyonce literally could never!!

  54. I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 4, 2015

    What happened to the laughter and drag attempts and the zesty posts from the fleas?
    They are now nice, sweet and somewhat cordial. I singlehandedly annihilated the fleas. They must’ve read that Wiki page. I almost feel sorry for them.
    I’m gonna say it again: Beyonce is Rihanna’s lessor. Rihanna is on a level with the likes of U2 and the Eagles.
    They soooooooo tried. 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀

    • BossB*tchBeyonce January 4, 2015

      Yasss girl yasss Beyonce is Rihanna’s lessor!!! Beyonce could never have a body count as impressive as rih’s!! Slay Ms.Fenty slay!! When will beyonce??

      • I STAN(D) FOR TALENT January 4, 2015

        Are you practicing sarcasm??
        You should know from personal experience that the Navy aren’t dumb and aren’t serial inflation reaching hoës, unlike the fleas. Get it together honey, for the sake of your sanity.
        | 😀 😀 😀 😀

      • BossB*tchBeyonce January 4, 2015

        Chile how should I know you guys aren’t stupid?? Because your track record says that you are. I mean you guys are the stan base that compares 5 albums to 7 & then celebrates the one with 7 album selling 10 million records more even though common sense dictates that someone with more albums should have sold more records. You guys are the stan base that bashes beyonce for endorsing pepsi and simutaneously defending rihanna smoking weed and putting it on twitter. You guys are the ones that excuses your faves abusing you(both verbally and phyiscally) becuase she interacts with yall on twitter. Your the one that hates Beyonce but your gravatar is dedicated to her. So how do I know you arent stupid??

  55. MariahIsMusic1 January 4, 2015

    I think it did sell over 5 Million, it was a huge album . Wow @ Iggy no video slay Iggz

  56. MariahIsMusic1 January 4, 2015

    Navy yall are so pressed over beyonce… I don’t understand tho, Rihanna is also successful. The only thing beyonce has over Rihanna is TALENT. Her talent is why she on TOP!

    Daaamn some of these lame crackheads on here make my head hurt. U understand looking at charts and s*** but some of you make it your life. Are any of you getting paid to do this? You better be getting a bug chunk of these artists songs.

    and the use of the word flop so loosely has to stop in 2015. It’s old. Damn one artist can do 5 mill another 3 mill and yall hollering and acting like fools over that talking about 3 mill is a flop. have you ever touched 3 mill dollars ever for anything? DOes ya job pay you anythind close to 3 mill for the labor you put up? 3 mill is never a flop anywhere. They both made money and sold they s***. Go get ya own.

    Anyway Congrads to Nicki for what she doing. Don’t see many brown female faces with these type of accolades these days so it makes me more than proud. Hopefully she can maintain during the slump weeks.

    Only is doing just as good as Beg For It did. Yall tried when Beg For It doesn’t even have a video to add streaming to its “units” for that certification. As for Beyonce, there is no way in hell Beyonce went from 3.4 million to 5 million in a month. Maybe in shipments, but certainly not sales. Media traffic isn’t the most reliable but they are usually in the same ball park of 500k. The Official Charts is not a reliable source for worldwide sales. They have no jurisdiction or way to track worldwide sales, they’re exclusive to the UK just like how Billboard is to the US. There is a reason both rarely ever report worldwide sales.

    Media traffic doesn’t account for 10% of album sales. Factor that in with shipments, & then you’ll get Beyonce’s album sales.. If she had about two major pop hits she could’ve sold even more. Sam Smith’ moved five million units rather quickly !! That’s awesome.. Beyonce’s album probably sold around about four million. But are they also including streams, the bundled set, & the Ep?
