Billboard Ranks Nicki Minaj’s Top 20 Songs Ever

In honor of her third studio album, The Pinkprint, hitting stores this week, Billboard magazine decided to rank Nicki Minaj’s Top 20 hits of her career. You’re probably thinking to yourself, does she even have that many songs from her two previous LPs?

You’re right, she doesn’t but the publication also counts all her numerous featured guest spots. When you factor that in, Minaj has plenty to choose from. The 32-year-old femcee is a hustler.

“Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least,” according to Billboard.

Care to make any predictions on which songs off Nicki’s catalog topped the list? The top two spots don’t surprise me but from there, I was caught off guard, especially with “Moment 4 Life,” “Pound The Alarm” and “Anaconda” ranking lower than I thought. Check out the countdown below and weigh in afterward.

Finally, I think The Voice has a potential multi-platinum selling artist on their hands. While Cassadee Pope and Danielle Bradbery have enjoyed moderate success, there hasn’t been a bona fide superstar to emerge from the singing competition as of yet.

I have a hunch that’s all going to change this year, if Matt McAndrew or Chris Jamison win. I wasn’t a fan of either when the finalists were first announced but both have won me over tremendously, especially Jamison. He’s the one I’m rooting for. He’s part Justin Timberlake, part Nick Jonas and all kinds of sexy.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe for the first time ever, all four finalists recorded an original song and filmed a music video to accompany it. Sure the visuals aren’t anything innovative but given the turnaround time, I think they’re stellar. Each finalist was given a solid track to perform, giving everyone an equal shot. As stated before, I’m rooting for Jamison because I love his track “Velvet” though McAndrew and Damien with “Wasted Love” and “Soldier” respectively are great as well. Definitely check out all the clips below.

God bless her little heart. Despite her new album doing poorly in sales, even in the UK where she’s found moderate success as a solo artist, Nicole Scherzinger is still churning out music videos for singles off Big Fat Lie, hoping one of them sticks. Gotta love her determination.

Naturally, with none of the previous tracks doing that well, there probably wasn’t much money left for another visual. Doesn’t matter to the 36-year-old former Pussycat Doll. She manages, what I assume, was a shoestring budget into something simple yet an entertaining visual.

Scherzy shows off her killer silhouettes and dance moves that Ciara would be proud of, with not much more than some colorful lighting and one backup dancer. Check our her new video for “Bang” below.

Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint In Stores Now

Nicki Minaj drops her third studio album, The Pinkprint, in stores today. After venturing with Europop fare like “Starships” and “Pound The Alarm” on her previous LP, the 32-year-old femcee returns to her raw hip-hop roots.

Early reviews are raving about Minaj’s surprisingly introspective work, with some calling it the best of her career. Wise move on Nicki’s part to grab everyone’s attention with the butt anthem, “Anaconda,” to lure them in with her more personal tracks.

The Pinkprint which was inspired by Jay-Z’s The Blueprint, features some big hitters including Ariana Grande, Beyonce, Jeremih, Drake, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Meek Mill and Skylar Grey. She previously told Complex that her hopes for the album is to inspire female rappers one day to be able to pattern themselves with what she’s done, much like what Jay-Z did for male rappers with The Blueprint.

“I have no idea what he was doing before The Blueprint dropped. It’s not that literal. People keep asking me about Jay’s The Blueprint and they think I’m doing something like that. I made reference to The Blueprint because Jay is the biggest rapper of our time. The name of the album was inspired by Jay but not the body of work. I do think that it’s going to create new rules, though, in [the way] that [The Blueprint did].”

While I enjoyed her pop hits like “Pound The Alarm,” I really feelin’ her new tracks. Be sure to check out Nicki’s new album. It’s quite fantastic. Check out the music videos released thus far off the album below.

It appears that Beyonce has started another trend ie. “7/11.” Like Queen Bey, Ariana Grande recruits her backup dancers and friends for a low budget, seemingly caz, music video. The 21-year-old chanteuse has a good ole sleepover complete with those plush animal hats and festive clothing.

With only days before Christmas, I was wondering if Grande was ever going to release a visual for the holiday track. She’s definitely cutting close. I suppose with her busy schedule, this informal quick and dirty clip was a good route to go. Overall, it’s nice to see a more casual side of Grande. I especially like the last two minutes of blooper and outtakes.

Watch her new clip below and see how mini Mimi’s Yuletide clip compares to Mariah Carey’s classic “All I Want for Christmas Is You” visual.

The YouTube sensation with the million dollar bubble butt, aka Bryan Hawn, is back with another parody. With the help of his buddy Colby Peters, the two show off their love in the most heterosexual way in their version of “Bromance.” From working out in sexual-looking positions, to pillow fights wearing just underwear or taking a dip in a pool, Colby and Bryan show exactly how far their affection goes.

At first, I thought “Bromance” was an original song by them, but apparently it’s a legit song from Ryan Higa and Chester See. Never heard of it? Neither have I, but apparently the video has over 25 million views and even has a cameo by Wayne Brady. I must be getting old :)

Check Hawn’s sexy spoof below. Though there’s no nudity, be forewarned there is plenty of side views of his bare buttocks. Proceed with caution. Speaking of which, if you want glutes like his, he shares his secret ass workouts.

After scoring six Grammy nominations including Album of the Year and Best New Artist, naturally Sam Smith would want to celebrate. The 22-year-old singer takes a break from filming emotional heart wrenching videos for more lighter fare. He just released the visual for “Like I Can,” another gem off his amazing In The Lonely Hour debut.

Directed by Sophie Muller, a dressed up Smith steps out on the town with his equally dapper mates. They start off partaking in an Italian dinner before hitting the streets of New York City, including a stop by the Brooklyn Bridge. Watch Sam and his boys down shots, climb fire escapes and dance the night away. Watch the video below.

Nicki Minaj Debuts ‘Only’ Music Video

To coincide with the European and Australian release of The Pinkprint, Nicki Minaj premieres the official music video for “Only.” Minaj enlists a trio of hip-hop artists for the Dr. Luke-produced track. Drake, Lil’ Wayne and Chris Brown all make cameos, but I would’ve rather had more scenes of that buff stud shown in the first few seconds of the visual. Holy woofness!!!

Nicki keeps it relatively simple and avoids anything too controversial for the video. She wears revealing black outfits, mesmerizing Drake and Wayne with her curves while her army of tough-looking females put random men in their place.

Only” has so far only peaked at #27 on the Hot 100. Maybe this clip can help bolster its chart performance. Be sure to buy The Pinkprint when it hits stores next week in North America.

If you haven’t heard her collabos with Beyonce, Ariana Grande and Jessie Ware, be sure that you do. They’re dope. Check out Nicki’s latest clip below.
