    Charts Don't Lie: January 4

    This week we see a few fluctuations within Charts Don't Lie, however Nicki Minaj keeps the #2 spot on lock with The Pinkprint. It's not a bad resting place per say, although we're sure #1 would have felt that much better. Nicki's numbers have been better than we expected, however, they're no Taylor Swift. In her second week out, she brought her total sales to just over 300k-- J. Cole, on the other hand, has already gone gold, and nears the 600k mark in his third week out.

    Writing credits can tell you a lot about the people involved in the conception of a song, but they unfortunately can't tell you who contributed what. Scanning the liner notes of The Pinkprint revealed plenty of songwriting from Ester Dean, but the most surprising name came up on "Feelin' Myself", Solana Rowe, AKA TDE's resident R&B artist, SZA.

    New year's is here, and thus begins the annual ritual. A few trips to the liquor store to grab the bottle. Texting and calling friends to find out where the turn-up is at. Going crazy enough to celebrate the end of one year, while trying to not screw yourself already for the next 365 days. Rinse and repeat a year later.

    After a few listens to Nicki Minaj's latest album, The Pinkprint, it is pretty clear that, to a certain extent, she does pay attention to critics. Her last album, 2012's Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, was universally panned in reviews for being disjointed, gimmicky and lackluster, among other things. There aren’t many traces of the over-the-top theatrics that were sprinkled all throughout her sophomore set on her latest offering.

    Nicki Minaj's third album, The Pinkprint, dropped this week and even though it's only been out for a little over a day, sales projection numbers are rather optimistic. Hits Daily Double reported today that The Pinkprint is set to sell 155,000 to 165,000 albums in its first week, with an additional 15,000 album streams. Considering that 2014 was a rather slow year in sales for hip-hop, these are pretty good numbers and Nicki Minaj has had one of the best first weeks of the year. But then again, this isn't surprising.
