Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday 2’ Is On The Rise On The Charts As Her Tour Begins

Nicki Minaj kicked off her highly-anticipated Pink Friday 2 World Tour on March 1 in Oakland. The rapper hasn’t toured for a number of

years, so her fan base was eager to support the superstar on the road once again. As she begins playing to huge crowds across America,

Minaj’s latest album is on the rise, with superfans streaming and buying it once more.

Pink Friday 2 improves on four Billboard charts this week. The set has been out for months, but Minaj and her latest full-length have been receiving so much attention lately, that many fans have returned to the set–either in preparation for an upcoming show they have tickets to, or simply to hear the collection once more.

The album moves the greatest distance on the Billboard 200, the chart company’s ranking of the most-consumed full-lengths in the U.S. This frame, it’s up to No. 26, lifting from No. 40.

In the past tracking week, Pink Friday 2 moved 21,807 equivalent units in the U.S. That sum is up more than 13% from the frame prior, which shows that the title is definitely gaining ground in terms of total consumption, not just on the charts. Of that sum, just under 2,000 were pure purchases.
