Billboard Update

As expected, Adele notches her seventh week at number 1 on the Hot 100. ‘Rolling in the Deep’ gained another 1% of audience impressions this week, bringing the song to 153 million audience impressions. Honestly, even with ‘Moves Like Jagger’ shooting to number 1 on itunes, Adele will be number 1 again next week. With the massive amount of radio support that increases each week, it’s going to be hard for anyone to dethrone Adele just yet.

The real chart news belongs to Katy Perry, who saw her single ‘Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)’ advance from 31-5, giving Perry her fifth consecutive top 5 single from ‘Teenage Dream’. According to Billboard, the song saw a 259% gain in digital sales, Continue reading

Billboard Update

Adele logs in her sixth week at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song shows no sign of slowing down, gaining 1% in audience impressions this week. ‘Rolling in the Deep’ is a hit on multiple formats, which makes its staying power even stronger. At this rate Adele will not only claim the most successful charting album on the Billboard 200 (10 weeks thus far), but also the most successful single of the year. As of now, ‘Rolling’ is tied with ‘Born This Way’ for longest number 1 of 2011. That will change next week I’m sure.

Nicki Minaj scores her first solo top 10 hit as ‘Super Bass’ moves 11-10 this week. The song makes a huge jump on the radio chart (31-14), and is up 8% in digital sales. Nicki was last seen in the top 10 at number 6 with Trey Songs on ‘Bottoms Up’ and at number 2 with Young Money on ‘Bedrock’. If she still plans on releasing ‘Fly’ as her Continue reading

Nicki Minaj Hits Number 1

Nicki Minaj can finally rejoice as her debut album, Pink Friday, reached number 1 on the Billboard 200 this week. The album, which debuted 11 weeks ago, sold 45,000 this week, showing a 18% increase. While the number is low the fact that she is gaining sales in this type of climate is very impressive.

Furthermore, the album pushes past one million copies this week selling 1,035,000 since it’s release. Some of you may remember that the album was certified platinum as few weeks ago, but that represents number of shipments rather than records actually sold.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Nicki is the top Continue reading
