Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint has entered its third week in stores, while J. Cole and 2014 Forest Hills Drive are on their fourth, and both are still doing very well on the Billboard charts!

Nicki did another solid 84k (51k physical/31k streaming/singles) this week, holding down her number 2 spot, just behind the reigning champ, Taylor Swift. This now puts the HB at 484k! At the rate she’s going, it’s looking like a gold plaque will be awarded to her by next week!

As for Jermaine, 2014 Forest Hills Drive slips 6-7 on the Billboard 200 with 59k sold, 47k of which were physical copies.

Next week we’ll be seeing the premiere of Rae Sremmurd’s debut SremmLife on the charts, and Billboard reports that the duo may sell upwards of 45k to 50k, making for the only debut in the top 10 that week. That’s pretty solid! In the meantime, check out this week’s top 10 below.
