Nicki Minaj crowns the Billboard 200 albums chart for the first time, as her "Pink Friday" set steps 3-1 in its 11th week on the list (45,000; up 18% per Nielsen SoundScan). "Pink" also pushes past the 1 million total sales mark this week --1,035,000 total since its Nov. 22, 2010 release.

"Pink Friday" initially debuted at No. 2 and has since spent its entire chart life in the top 10.

Minaj's patient wait for her turn at No. 1 is a rare sight. For the most part, an album is only No. 1 because it debuted there. It's unusual for a set to climb to the top. Case in point: in 2010, there were 30 albums that hit No. 1, but just one --Lil Wayne's "I Am Not A Human Being" --actually rose to the top. Wayne debuted at No. 2 off of just downloads, then fell to No. 16 the next week, only to reach No. 1 the next once the CD version of the album dropped.

Before "Friday's" ascent to the top, the last album to take longer to rise to No. 1 was way back on the chart dated March 5, 2005, when Ray Charles' "Genius Loves Company" finally hit No. 1 in its 25th week. It zoomed 15-1 with 224,000 (up 202%) following its Grammy win for album of the year.

Minaj's 18% sales gain could be attributed to sustained impact from her "Saturday Night Live" guest turn on Jan. 30, in addition to some surprising viral love from confessed fans Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. The latter ladies can be found --separately --on YouTube rapping to the "Pink Friday" cut "Super Bass." The two most popular clips have racked up more than 2 million views in the five days they've been online.

Pink Friday is only the third album by a female hip-hop star to reach #1, following a pair of 1999 albums: Foxy Brown's Chyna Doll and Eve's Ruff Ryders' First Lady. (It's the fourth if you count Lauryn Hill's 1998 blockbuster The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, which straddled the line between hip-hop and R&B.)

    Well wouldnt a more recent album be #1 instead of hers? Dummies always want to hate on something that should be praised. How often does an album released 2 months before reach it back up to #1? Rarely

    Lol a 2 month old album doesn't just slip into #1 because there's "nobody coming out with anything this week".

    And there are 2 debuts from this week and 2 from last week in the Top 10. Lol @ the excuses. Ima hold a funeral for the haters tomorrow. RSVP here.

    Word... it seems like nowadays, if you don't debut at #1, you'll never get there. I hope Bruno Mars does it eventually too.

    Kanye moving on to a new project more than likely was inspired by his singles failing to reach expectations. Whatever eases the pain though..

    Only 6 albums in the Top 25 were released before Pink Friday... and 3 of the 6 were released in the same month as PF.

    Amos Lee, Grammy Nominations, Iron & Wine, Wisin y Yandel are debuts this week.

    Decemberists (#1 last week), Kidz Bop (#2), The Script (#3), Social Distortion (#4) were debuts last week.

    as often as an album reaching number 1 by only selling 31,000

    but hey a #1 is a #1. congrats to her
    Lol who's reaching #1 by selling 31k?? #HelenKeller #FixYourCokeBottleGlasses
