All-Female Top 5 for the 5th Consecutive Week on the Hot 100

picI initially blogged, nearly a month ago, that the ladies had dominated the top 5 of the Hot 100 (CLICK HERE for that post). For the 5th consecutive week the ladies are still ruling over the top 5 and have set a record with the success.

In at #1 is Meghan Trainor‘s, ‘All About That Bass’ followed by Billboard’s Woman of the Year, Taylor Swift in at #2 with ‘Shake It Off’. In at #3 is Iggy Azalea‘s, ‘Black Widow’, featuring Rita Ora, #4 is Jessie Js ‘Bang Bang’ featuring Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, and at #5 is Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Anaconda’. Congrats to Nicki as it was announced this week that ‘Anaconda’ has gone platinum.

The other longest feat for women in the top 5 of the Hot 100 happened in 1999. Monica‘s (‘Angel of Mine’), Britney Spears (‘…Baby One More Time’), Deborah Cox (‘Nobody’s Supposed to Be Here’), Cher (‘Believe’) and Brandy‘s (‘Have You Ever’)in the top 5 at that time.

Video Review: Nicki Minaj, ‘Anaconda’

nickianacondaI’ve done a track review, posted the lyric video, and now here’s the review to the highly anticipated video for Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’. First off I’m not a fan of it at all. I’m not surprised that there is ass shaking everywhere. The song samples Sir Mix-A-Lot’s, ‘Baby Got Back’, so of course ASS would be the focal point.

The video has so many scenes. First there’s the jungle with the banana turntable and leaking coconut. Switch to her in A. Mcqueen then back to the jungle. Then there’s the workout scene where she’s in a bikini at one point then she’s in sweats. Moving on to the chair and the cut off shorts with the jordans and basic chair choreo. She drops the Jordans and then has on heels, pink ones of course. She plugs Myx Moscato, has a scene eating a banana (cute pun), then there’s the final scene with Drake.She gives him the ultimate lap dance and there’s no denying that he was enjoying it.

To expect Nicki Minaj to not be shaking her ass you must’ve missed the entire concept of the title. I will say while the video is not my favorite it’s very clever, well the lyrics are. There’s no denying that she’s gorgeous and that her body is amazing, BUT it’s like she was doing the most in this video. It’s like it was beyond sexy and just straight sex. Nonetheless, she looked great, but she’s done better.
