Nicki Minaj’s ‘Queen’ Outsells Travis Scott’s ‘AstroWorld’ In The United Kingdom

Published: Monday 20th Aug 2018 by David

Nicki Minaj‘s hit-deficient album ‘Queen‘ is faring very well overseas.

Full story below…

Without a smash hit to its name, the project failed to top the Billboard 200 in its opening week and saw her welcome her lowest pure sale figure to date in the United States.

It now seems, thanks to a fan base scattered across the globe, that the album’s commercial glory will be found in markets Europe, Asia, South America, Africa & Australia.

For, the set’s global opening figure sits north of the 500,000 units milestone powered by the digits she shifted in the U.K.

Hits Daily Double reports…

Nicki Minaj has the highest new album on the U.K.’s Official Charts this week with Queen (Island) entering at #5, while Miles Kane starts at #8 with Coup De Grace (Virgin EMI). Over on singles, George Ezra is back on top.

Helping its cause? ‘Majesty‘, the cut she recorded with the British act Labrinth and Eminem which soared into the chart and landed at #41 and ‘Barbie Dreams’ which opened at #36…currently outselling Ed Sheeran‘s ‘Perfect.’

Quite interestingly, ‘Queen’ is currently selling more copies than Travis Scott‘s ‘Astroworld’ which blocked her path to #1 in the United States and Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ which now sits at #2 on the Official Urban Chart.

The performer, who has spent the last few hours ranting about her U.S. sales figures on Twitter, is yet to celebrate news that the LP has reached the half a million marker globally.

  3. Carlos August 20, 2018

    It’s really not that great.

  4. KB August 20, 2018

    Great! Maybe now she’ll STFU and count her unappreciative ass blessings. #SORELOSER

    What people don’t realize is Billboard didn’t include all her tour & merchandise bundle sales cuz of some kind of new rules but yet they counted Travis’s merchandise sales in his final figures whose isn’t fair. & Cardi has only sold 194,000 pure sales since her album dropped in April so Nicki will def pass her up eventually.

      Not when Nicki only sold 73K. That will drop by 50% next week and she’ll be selling even less the 3rs week. She won’t even see 150K pure sales. And let’s not talk about streaming.

      And save the excuses, the album was pushed back, have no hits to support it, was still late. How do you call yourself the queen, but you can’t even get your business right. ?

      • I said what I said August 20, 2018

        Exactly, Save the excuses. She flopped plain and simple!!! There were no rules that Bullboard allowed Travis, but not her. People just aren’t that interested in her anymore. It happens to the best of them. And where is the proof she’s selling 500k WW first week? I don’t that very seriously. Oh, and she won’t catch up with Cardi’s sales or streams with this album!

  6. Bardi ? August 20, 2018

    Sorry. Have any of the Kim fans been able to explain how her albums slayed on iTunes this week but didn’t even chart on the main chart?

  7. The Wig Snatcher August 20, 2018

    How much did Karen civil pay for this announcement????

  8. The Wig Snatcher August 20, 2018

    So what the album reached a half million in “sales” thanks to her barbs streaming it while they were sleeping?

    So what she has the highest selling new album in the UK when the album debuted at #5 overall?

    What happened to the album being #1 all over the world when it actually debuts lower than #1 in the two charts that count the most internationally???

    HOnika and her prancing ballroom Barbz need to accept her rightful defeat and move on. HOnika is a worse sore loser than Donald trump.

    • I said what I said August 20, 2018

      I think they’re neck in neck…???

    Invasion of Privacy >>>>>>>>>>>> Queen in sales, quality, lyrics, talent, production, singles and overall content

    • SdotB August 20, 2018

  10. Rosy August 20, 2018

    She is spoil and nasty mentality to whom is much given trust me she will have it taken away what a ungrateful person god bless her with a career and riches and she out here whining and crying about a number one spot she needs to use her tears on that little girl her brother r**** but she out here making music with a pedaphile I’m starting to believe that she on drugs what a pierce of s***.

  11. JaQuanna Man 4 Lames???? August 20, 2018

    Yasssss B**** QUEEN get your coins ❤️❤️❤️

    • The Legend Called Missy Elliott ?? August 20, 2018

      Bish got coints, can’t take that from her! Two things though… she has a nasty attitude. There is a difference between being a Boss and being a B****. Second stop blaming others for the lack of sales. The album just came out! She needs to play this cool and not be the fool.

      • JaQuanna Man 4 Lames???? August 20, 2018

        Agreed realist comment all day I respect people that comment on her that acknowledge her accolades but wish for her to be more humble with her craft. Like I said #2 don’t determine greatness and she will continue delivering great music .

  12. Lol August 20, 2018

    No one cares about U.K. sales lol. Stop kissing her ass

  13. SACHIN RATHORE August 20, 2018
