Hip Hop Singles Sales This Week: Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea, Snoop Dogg

Nicki Minaj dethrones Iggy Azalea at #1.

For the first week in months, Iggy Azalea’sFancy” is not the #1 song on the digital R&B and Hip Hop chart. Still, Azalea manages to keep her name in the Top 10 three times for both her own music and a feature on T.I.’sNo Mediocre.” Nicki Minaj’sAnaconda” replaced “Fancy” its first week on the chart, knocking the record-breaking single down to #3 in the process.

Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” Debuts At #1

Taking over fellow female emcee Iggy Azalea’s hit track its first official week on the chart, Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” quickly sold 141,092 this week. The weeks of promotional lead-up and controversial single artwork seems to have helped the track climb to #1. Earlier this week, T.I. shrugged off any possibility of a beef between Minaj and Azalea, saying, “That's a little more preposterous, like, 'what the fuck?' because they're not even in each other's lane.”

Iggy Azalea At #2 And #3

In it’s 23rd week on the chart, Azalea’s “Fancy” was finally dethroned and jumped from #1 to #3 this week after a 8 percent drop in sales. Still, Azalea’s newer, Rita Ora featuring single “Black Widow” held onto its #2 spot with a 6 percent jump in sales. “Black Widow,” which has sold a total of 475,061 units managed just over a 100k this week while “Fancy” dipped below that measure at 98,318. Still, Azalea can boast a total of 3,339,960 of the hit single sold up to this point.

Jeremih And YG Climb To #5

After resting at #8 two weeks ago and climbing to #7 last week, Jeremih and YG’s “Don’t Tell ‘Em” climbed two spots to #5 this week. The single sold 49,283 units in a 10 percent sales increase from last week. The latest numbers bring the single’s sales up to 280,896.

#1. Nicki Minaj - “Anaconda” - 141,092 (141,096)

#2. Iggy Azalea feat. Rita Ora - “Black Widow” - 106,284 (475061)

#5. Jeremih feat. YG - “Don’t Tell ‘Em” - 49,283 (280,896)

#6. Pharrell Williams - “Happy” - 44,106 (6,064,449)

#7. John Legend - “All Of Me” - 41,680 (4,631,602)

#8. Drake - “0 To 100/The Catch Up” - 40,437 (188,001)

#9. Jason Derulo feat. Snoop Dogg - “Wiggle” - 37,397 (1,487,253)

    Iggy is NOT a female MC. Labeling her that a disrespect to the many femcees out there that take this art serious. All she is selling is sex appeal. Nothing more!

    • Anonymous
      She has a ghostwriter and instantly changes her accent from somewhere in Australia to Atlanta geogira when she starts rapping , she is a fraud artist NOT an emcee...
