(Relaxnews) – After taking a spot on last week’s social media chart by Starcount, Nicki Minaj climbs to the top spot for the week of Augut 25-31, riding the wave of the popularity of her new “Anaconda” video and her success at last week’s MTV VMAs. Australian artist Iggy Azalea is a new addition to the chart, thanks to her own VMA buzz.

As Nicki Minaj’s video for “Anaconda” continues to get views — she pulled in 70 million YouTube views over the past week — the rapper is also grabbing headlines after her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards alongside Jessie J and Ariana Grande, which included a “wardrobe malfunction” that may have been a planned stunt.

Minaj got nearly 300,000 Facebook likes and was talked about by 830,000 on the site, while on Instagram she earned 365,365 new followers.

Another highlight of August 24th’s VMAs ceremony was Iggy Azalea’s performance of her new single “Black Widow” with Rita Ora. The recording artist is enjoying a surge in sales thanks to the performance and is also seeing her star rise on social media. She was talked about by 2.25 million people on Facebook over the course of the week, also earning 300,000 likes on the site and pulling in more than 100,000 new Twitter followers.
