With 14 weeks in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart, Nicki Minaj‘s Pink Friday becomes the first female rap album with the most consecutive weeks in the Top 10.
Coming off the momentum of having the No. 1 album in the country with Pink Friday, Nicki Minaj celebrated her achievement by performing “Moment 4 Life” on Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Nicki Minaj is still moving units after 11 weeks since the release of her debut album, Pink Friday.
Nicki Minaj crowns the Billboard 200 albums chart for the first time, as her “Pink Friday” set steps 3-1 in its 11th week on the list (45,000; up 18% per Nielsen SoundScan). “Pink” also pushes past the 1 million total sales mark this week — 1,035,000 total since its Nov. 22, 2010 release.
“Pink Friday” initially debuted at No. 2 and has since spent its entire chart life in the top 10.

Kanye West and Nicki Minaj occupy No. 1 and No. 2 respectively on Billboard 200 charts.
As expected, Kanye West and Nicki Minaj arrive in the Nos. 1 and 2 slots, respectively, on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Mr. West sold 496,000 of his “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” while Minaj moved 375,000 of her “Pink Friday” debut according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Both sales starts are a bit lower than initially projected, as some industry insiders had predicted in the early part of last week that the pair were on track to start with perhaps 550,000 and 400,000, respectively.
