Nicki Minaj Breaks Records With ‘Super Bass’ Video
Nicki Minaj‘s career is still very much on fire. While she is currently opening for Britney Spears on the Femme Fatale tour, Minaj continues to break records in the music world. The video for her latest single, ‘Super Bass,’ was viewed over 1 million times on the Music Choice channel, which is a Video On Demand service offered to cable subscribers.
According to Rentrak, an audience measurement company, Minaj’s video garnered a record-setting 1,436,807 page views in just one week. The strong numbers made ‘Super Bass’ the best one-week performance of a video on the VOD channel since its launch in 2004.
But the Music Choice accolades don’t stop there. Minaj’s videos hold three of the five slots on the channel’s one-week viewing records list. ‘Right Thru Me’ received 1,278,807 million views in a week and ‘Your Love’ snagged 1,062,915 views in seven days back in August of 2010. Holding down the remaining two spots were Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby,’ for which one week views topped 1.2 million, and Lil Wayne‘s ‘Lollipop,’ which came in at No. 4 on the Top 5 list with 1,180,360 views for the week ending April, 13, 2008.
No stranger to making history, in May, Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday’ debut broke Billboard’s record for the most consecutive weeks spent in the Top 10 by a female rap album on the Billboard 200 album chart.
