Nicki Minaj Earns Her 1st Billboard Top 10 with “Super Bass”

Nicki Minaj’s latest single “Super Bass” has landed her in the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the very first time as a lead artist.

If you could not get the infectious “Super Bass” tune out of your head lately, it was because it has been playing on the radio waves almost as frequently as other Billobard top 10 Lady Gaga, The Black Eye Peas, and Katy Perry hits. Up from last weeks 11th spot, the “Pink Friday” track reached the #10 slot after 7 weeks on the Hot 100.

Having her very own spot on the mainstream charts is a huge milestone for Young Money’s first lady, who rose to fame by adding her unique, quirky verses to the tracks of artists like Mariah Carey, Usher, Ludacris, and Trey Songz. According to Billboard, her Songz feature “Bottoms Up” peaked at number 6 on the Hot 100, and was the first time the Harajuku Barbie ever appeared on the top 10.

Her first Billboard accomplishment was in 2010 when “Your Love” reached #1 on the Rap charts, making the Queens native the first female solo rapper to reach that spot since Missy Elliot in 2002. Her Drake collaboration “Moment 4 Life” has also topped the Rap charts.

As previously reported and confirmed by Nicki, Taylor Swift made “Super Bass” popular after a clip of her performing the lyrics hit the net. Since then, Nicki Minaj, 26, has released a video for the single, and performed it on the 2011 Billboard Music Awards.

dance central 2 to feature nicki minaj’s “massive attack”


Dance Central 2 will feature simultaneous multiplayer, according to Microsoft’s E3 Press Conference. Simultaneous multiplayer was one of the features that was really missing from Dance Central, so fans of the Kinect dancing game should be thrilled. In Dance Central 2’s Perform It mode you’ll be able to play together or head to head with friends. The new multiplayer will also allow drop in/drop out functionality so the party never has to stop.

You will also be able to transfer your entire library of songs from Dance Central to Dance Central 2, which makes the sequel feature the largest library ever for a dancing video game. Dance Central 2 will also feature voice recognition, a campaign mode, new venues, dance crews, and a renovated Break It Down mode. Some of the songs from Dance Central 2’s new soundtrack were also unveiled. You’ll find the full list after the break.

Rihanna – “Rude Boy”
Nicki Minaj – “Massive Attack”
Montell Jordan – “This Is How We Do It”
La Roux – “Bulletproof”
Far East Movement – “Like a G6”
B.o.B featuring Bruno Mars – “Nothin’ on You”
Bananarama – “Venus”
Usher – “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love”

Dance Central 2 will be coming out exclusively for the Xbox 360. We’ll have more Dance Central 2 details during our extensive E3 coverage.

nicki wants to act with will smith, get directed by tim burton

As noted yesterday, Nicki Minaj walks away with Kanye West’s just-released “Monster” video just like she does the song; in playing two different versions of herself, she manages to hit on a dozen or so different aspects of her personality.

If you ask Minaj herself, nobody should be surprised that her acting chops are top-notch: “I went to school to be an actress. I never expected to be a rapper. It just fell in my lap,” she told Entertainment Weekly at Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards. “So I would like to get an acting gig. I hope that when I am done with the tour I can go back and do some acting. That is my long-term goal.”

The tour in question is her upcoming trek with Britney Spears:”I want to go all out and make it over the top and theatrical. There will be costume changes and hair changes. Lots of sexy outfits and dancing,” she explained. “I don’t know how to do things normal and boring. Why? People pay good money for concert tickets these days.”

As far as her acting aspirations go, she’s looking for a bit more than the usual rapper-to-actor transitions (meaning we won’t be seeing Nicki’s version of Killa Season). “I want to work with Will Smith, because he’s a very successful rapper turned actor and therefore a role model,” Minaj said. “And Tim Burton because I love his crazy imagination. He comes up with these characters that are just so fascinating and the costumes and just creates these whole worlds.”

Nicki could certainly fit right in to Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Maybe there’s room for her in one of his upcoming projects, like as a bootylicious vampire in Dark Shadows? Or perhaps Burton should now build something around Smith and Minaj, like a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory sequel with Smith as Wonka and Minaj as Veruca Salt? (She can even do her terrible British accent!) Make it happen, Hollywood!

Nicki Minaj To Embark On 2012 “Pink Friday” Tour

Nicki Minaj has plans for headlining her own tour next year.

After being an integral part in tours by Lil Wayne and Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj has revealed that she plans to embark on her own tour in 2012.

“I’m sure there are so many things I’m going to learn just by watching her,” said Nicki of her time touring with Britney Spears in an interview with Usmagazine.com. “Next year, I’ll be headlining my own tour so this is my time to be a student and to learn and to absorb all of this information and then take that knowledge and create an amazing Pink Friday tour at the top of 2012.”

“I’m honored to be out with Britney,” said Minaj. “She’s freakin’ paved the way for pop culture. I’m excited. We are in talks to hit the stage together but that is up to her. I would love to of course. If we do something on tour, it will probably be the [‘Till the World Ends’] remix.”

Nicki recently told HipHopDX that she is looking forward to recording a follow-up to last year’s Pink Friday.
