‘Megatron’: Nicki Minaj Single Makes Top 20 Debut / Matches Michael Jackson Record

Published: Monday 1st Jul 2019 by David

Nicki Minaj‘s discography has been graced with another top 20 thanks to an impeccable strategy executed by the millions who call themselves her fans.

Read below…

After opening at #10 in New Zealand, ‘Megatron’– the rapper’s new smash hit single- has opened at #20 on the Billboard 200 after her fans launched a campaign designed to lift the track to commendable chart ground with traditional purchases and streams.

The track glides to glory before the release of its parent album which will stand as the performer’s fifth set and follow the release of her latest album ‘Queen’ which delivered the tracks ‘Ganja Burn’, ‘Majesty’ and ‘Barbie Dreams.’

Unfortunately, that set failed to enjoy the hype and glory earned by her opening album ‘Pink Friday’ and its EuroPop follow-up ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.’

Now, if ‘Mega’s sales are anything to go by, it seems Minaj is on her way to reclaiming said glory with album #5.

The song is her 53rd Top 40 single.

    It will freefall next week like her past singles have done. Absolutely no one outside of the delusional Barbs have MegaTRASH in rotation.

      I like Nicki but lets not pretend like a new single selling thousands is equivalent to a Michael Jackson single which sold millions just because of a chart position. The charts do not state the amount sold. You have to look at the revenue generated from the single for true comparison. Thus, Nicki has not outsold Michael or Jay-z. She just got her singles to the same chart number as they did which is a huge win for her. I think this comparison stuff is done at the expense of defaming older artists work who sold millions. The music these days sells for pennies on the dollar and in many cases for FREE. For example, I watched Nicki’s video a couple times FREE on youtube and even though i did not pay a cent my streaming counts as a ‘sale’. In Michael Jackson’s time people had to actually buy the single at the record store. How do you compare spending $5 to $6 per single to FREE watching of a single?

        @Jasmine

        You took my thoughts and articulated them exactly! I am so tired of folks comparing artists from different eras. MJ, Whitney, Prince, Aretha, Elvis, The Beatles, even Jay Z..did not have streaming so dont COMPARE them to Nicki Garbaj.. dont even compare her to Missy, Salt N Pepa or Lauryn. Her peers are Remy, Cardi, Iggy, Azaelia etc

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. July 1, 2019

        @Jasmine – I agree.

      • E. July 2, 2019

        Keep that in my when y’all speaking of Cardi’s #1s. We all know her #1s came from streams. Both of her songs that went to #1 was only $.69 at the time they went to #1. When it comes to Nicki y’all want to compare it to the old days. The way they count music has changed quite a few times over the years.

    That song is trash lol. Press is way better. “Brtatata” tf?

    • !!! July 1, 2019

      Meanwhile the “Okurr” trademark is being rejected.

      • NickiisCancelled July 1, 2019

        Meanwhile St Nick canโ€™t trademark anything since she stole from Lil Kim and lacks originality. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • !!! July 1, 2019

      Meanwhile Lil Kim album being rejected by the label; causing delays.

      • Repo July 1, 2019

    • !!! July 2, 2019

      Meanwhile I’m stating facts and y’all are stating opinions and hate ๐Ÿ˜‚ get help. Nicki ain’t going nowhere y’all been saying the s*** since Shether. Yet shes still here. Hang it up, flatscreen.

      • Danny Bey July 2, 2019

        Yea she’s still here….flopping lmfaoooo

    • !!! July 2, 2019

      She’s been in the game for how long now? 10+ years and her latest single is in the billboard top 20. That’s not flopping pooh

      • Danny Bey July 2, 2019

        10+ years in the game, still no number one or Grammy, and BARELY cracking the top 20 with promo and video. Yโ€™all stay reaching for and tryna make her happen. This ainโ€™t Queen sh** lol.

    • !!! July 3, 2019

      Still no grammy or number one but somehow she manages to have longevity, an empire of fans nd still making headlines. Meanwhile, Megatron debuts at top 20 with no performances and meanwhile PRESSed is not even in the top 40. Atlantic wasted all that money on a grammy and a number one that no one even thinks about anymore just for Cardi to decline. Smh. ๐Ÿ˜œ

    • Bettie Clayton July 6, 2019

  4. Clarkson July 1, 2019

    Mrs petty minaj is really over.
    After all the promo she couldn’t crack the top 15.
    Her fans have so much mouth on social media but when it’s time to buy or stream her music they keep mute.

    • Dc July 1, 2019

      And almost out top 100 on iTunes to flop ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • E. July 2, 2019

      Did “press” make the top 15? Hell no, and that’s sad because Cardi actually gets airplay. For Nicki to debut at #20 with no airplay is damn good. There’s artist who songs I hear everyday all day on the radio and their songs still never make it in the top 20s.

      • Please July 2, 2019

        We’re talking about NNNNNIIIIICCCCKKKKIIIIIIIIIIIII. All this changing of subjects is so weak. Support your fave and stop trolling.

      • Danny Bey July 2, 2019

        Nicki had a video while Cardi didnt.

  5. Nicki Maraj July 1, 2019

    A post about The Queen and look at all the CardiB fans leaving negative comments ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ at this point they might as well worship The Queen who takes the time out of their day to worry about someone you claim not to like yโ€™all are Fans seek Help

    • E. July 1, 2019

      Exactly!

    • Please July 1, 2019

      Show me where anyone mentioned Cardi. This is another example of the Barbz out here trolling instead of supporting. There’s a reason why everyone drags you guys and your fave.

Stick a fork in Miss Piggy, I mean Petty….She is done!!! She released the song and video the same day and was only able to scan 25k singles? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. The jokes write themselves!

  6. NickiisCancelled July 1, 2019

  8. King of Kingz July 1, 2019

    ๐Ÿฅดthese b****** sure is pressed in these damn comments tho ๐Ÿ˜‚ yaโ€™ll love to hate on the Queen. Worry bout Press & Wish Wish free falling down the charts after there first week. & press had several months of hype & was released when nobody else had new music out so kill the 5 spot debut difference & ๐Ÿฅดsince when is a top 20 hit a flop? Smh give props & credit when itโ€™s due hating ass b******

    • Dc July 1, 2019

      She had a video got to number 1 iTunesย  and still only debuted at 20 press debuted at 16 no promo no video nicki will fall hard next week being that the single is out top 100 on iTunes by Wednesday ๐Ÿ˜‚

      • King of Kingz July 1, 2019

        Sis Press had hella promo, that video snippet in the studio that she dropped that got over 30 million views, plus the naked cover art she released is considered promo & as I said before she dropped when one else did. Had she dropped when Drake, Lil Nas & Shawn Mendes & Taylor she would have debuted lower then 15. ๐Ÿฅดyaโ€™ll really tryna act like a top 20 debut is a flop tho ๐Ÿ˜‚

      • NickiisCancelled July 1, 2019

        Itโ€™s a flop sis. Itโ€™s amazing how yโ€™all cap for this fraud. Itโ€™s like taking your investment and putting your all into it knowing the stock finna crash. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Female Rap will grow beyond Petty Minaj misusing it. Sheโ€™s desperate for respect at this point. She need to take a god damn break and go get pregnant by that rapist. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

      • Danny Bey July 3, 2019

        An IG snippet and cover art isnt “hella” promo you idiot.

      • ATM July 6, 2019

        How about we got two amazing Black Queens that are doing there thing. Why they can’t coexist together. We always putting are people against one another smh.

    • Echo July 1, 2019

      Queen of Queenz…..gurl stfu and continue to take the BIG L your โ€œallegedโ€ Queen has been receiving these last few years. Sheโ€™s washed boo, and you will deal clown ๐Ÿคก!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  9. Lol July 1, 2019

    Itโ€™s just gonna freefall next week so you wasted your time typing this article.

  10. My third eye July 1, 2019

    She should name the album the fifth thing thing

  11. Caleb July 1, 2019

    Michael Jacksonโ€™s records were made with his own songs and not everyone elseโ€™s. Thereโ€™s a difference.
    And what is this? ๐Ÿ˜‚
    โ€œBiggest first week solo debut pure sales by a female rapper thisโ€

    • NickiisCancelled July 1, 2019

  12. NickiisCancelled July 1, 2019

    โ€œItโ€™s not about the race either, itโ€™s about the marathon.โ€ Yet weโ€™re supposed to applaud MegaFLOP first week pure sales when itโ€™s bout to free fall off the charts while Press been holding steady for over a month! Ha! The hypocrisy is real. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • E. July 2, 2019

      Holding steady falling down the charts. It will move up for a week or 2 since she released the video. Then back down the charts it goes.

  13. MissGuided July 1, 2019

    PLEASE stop comparing her to real legends. Her sales and stats are unimpressive AF. Michael & Aretha broke records on their own merit, not by being featured on 1000000 songs a year. BTW this song is a flop. It will drop out of the top 30 by next week.

  14. Erica July 1, 2019

    Its Amazing how the barbz are saying it’s not a flop since it made it the top 20 at 20, but last week y’all said cardi flop with press which debuted at 16. Make it make sense ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • Beam Me Up Scotty July 1, 2019

      “Press” is the true flop because it actually has radio support. Nicki has been blackballed.

      • Erica July 1, 2019

        Fine something ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  15. chartmania July 3, 2019

    this song is pure SHITT.. So called-Queen

  16. NicoleBby July 5, 2019

    Damn yall some real life hating ass b******, took the time to click and read a Nicki post. Then make an account just to bash her, Miserable ass whores.
