Congratulations to our winner of the Top, Taylor Swift!
She spent the main part of 2014 at the top of the Charts of the whole world, Taylor blew up meters at the end of the year with the release of her last album “1989 ” which has sold more than 3 661 000 copies! The Country music singer seduced the general public with singles like “Shake it Off” (which monopolized the 1st place of Hot 100 during 4 weeks) and “Blank Space” which, according to the Billboard ranking, made her the first woman of the ranking to surpass herself for the top position in 50 years! She then joins the very private club of The Beatles, Outkast, Usher and The Black Eyed Peas. At only 25, the young woman was elected the best artist of 2014 and the most generous personality of the year because she supports various charities and causes.
Don’t look further: Taylor Swift is the artist of 2014!
Flop of 2014: Nicki Minaj!
What a disappointment! The one who got smashed up at the end of the year is Nicki Minaj, due to the poor sales of “The Pinkprint “… The problem when you are the first lady of Lil Wayne’s label ” YMCMB ” is that you are always expected to have monstrous sales, and the other side of the coin is sometimes heavy. Lil Wayne manages with no problem at all to sell 500,000 copies in one week, with little or even no marketing help! Then how, with all the promotion that she had on behalf of her record company, the singer was not able to sell more than 210.000 copies? It seems that the production of “The Pinkprint” did not go down as planned: 1 month delay, bad results on sales, and far too much promotion!Nicki Minaj played too much with the buzz because she sang her album nearly everywhere she could! BET AWARDS 2014, Video MTV Music Awards, IHeartRadio Music Festival Fashion Rocks, MTV EMA, American Music Awards, 106 and Park, The View, Inside the NBA, Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Real, and The Ellen DeGeneres shows to name some of them… Furthermore, the cover of the album disappointed: a pink fingerprint, we expected something trashier from the interpreter of Anaconda!
