After 11 weeks on the Billboard Charts, Pink Friday, the debut album from rapper Nicki Minaj has hit the #1 Spot. The album has been in the top 10 since its release debuting at the #2 spot on the Billboard 200 Album Chart and has over 1 million in sales.
Many believe the 18% album sales increase is due to Nicki appearing on Saturday Night Live recently, which was the second most watched episode this season. Another reason her sales may have risen could be the contribution of Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez who both put out youtube viral videos performing one of Nicki’s album songs “Super Bass.” Both videos have gotten over 2 million views in the last 5 days.
Either way, congrats to Nicki for a job well done, its been a while since any female has been able to garner such results and we wish her much more success.
