Barbie Breaks Billboard Records

Posted by User

Nicki Minaj made an undeniable splash on the Billboard charts this year, becoming the first female to top the Rap Songs list with her hit 'Your Love' since Missy Elliott  held the same position in November 2002. But that was only the tip of the iceberg for the Young Money raptress breaking records on the Billboard charts.

According to the numbers, Nicki has become the first female rapper to have the most entries lodged on the Billboard Hot 100, with seven entries listed on Nielsen Soundscan's 200 best-selling songs of 2010. The Harajuku Barbie has sold a total of 4,298,000 in sales, including her own solo records as well as joints on which she's been featured.

The highest-selling track of the bunch is Ludacris' 'My Chick Bad,' which sold 1,246,000 copies. Her breakout single 'Your Love' came in a distant second with 755,000 units sold, followed by Lil Wayne's 'Knockout' (519,000), Trey Songz's 'Bottoms Up' (518,000), Usher's 'Lil Freak' (508,000), Sean Kingston's 'Letting Go (Dutty Love)' (377,000) and Jay Sean's '2012' (355,000).

Despite the number of hits, Nicki still has to tackle releasing her debut. The album, 'Pink Friday,' is set to hit stores November 23.
