Nicki Minaj: Anaconda Slithers To The Number 2 Spot
The past few weeks have given Minaj much to celebrate. After earning her 51st hit single on Billboard, that said single has now skyrocketed to the top 10 of the charts.
The song debuted at #19 on the Hot100, most of it’s points coming from sales. The following week the song dipped down to #39, from a decline in sales and hardly any streaming points. This decline is common when tracking new singles, especially if a video hasn’t been released.
But, this week the song spiked back up the charts.
Anaconda racked up 120K in sales, placing it #6 on the Hot Digital Songs chart. As, reported last week – Anaconda stood a chance in entering the top 20 after the release of it’s video.
After her performance at the VMA‘s this past Sunday, the single earned an extra boost. As of right now, the single is currently #4 (Explicit Version) and #69 (Clean Version) on the iTunes charts. The video has also continued to hold the crown for most streamed video, day by day.
Nicki now has two songs in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. ‘Anaconda’ at #2 and ‘Bang Bang‘ at #9. No doubt that Bang Bang will too soar up the charts next week after the accompany of it’s party themed music video.
