Nicki Minaj Jumps To #1 On Billboard Chart; Hits Platinum Mark
Nicki Minaj is celebrating two accomplishments this week, as her hit album Pink Friday is sitting at #1 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart, just as the album passes the 1 million sales mark.
According to data provided by Billboard, Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday, which is in its 11th week on the chart, moved up three spots from last week to the #1 position.
The sales spike is being attributed to Nicki's recent high profile appearance on "Saturday Night Live" on January 30th.
Pink Friday also got some extra publicity when videos of Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez singing Nicki's song "Super Bass" hit the Internet, garnering over 2 million views in just over five days.
The publicity surrounding Pink Friday helped push the album's sales to 1,035,000, taking her past the million mark, making Nicki's major label debut a platinum seller
