Nicki Minaj, now already causing a stir as a judge on American Idol, has a stellar week at Top 40. Not only is her new single, “Va Va Voom,” a HitPredictor this week, but she is also featured on this week’s other HitPredictor, the brand-new single from Justin Bieber.
Justin is really coming into his own as a credible radio artist this year. The first single from his current album hit the top 10 in airplay at Top 40, then he followed up with his first top 5 airplay hit, “As Long As You Love Me” (currently #2 at Top 40). Now his third single, “Beauty and a Beat,” is a HitPredictor this week and likely to follow those two singles up the charts.
