idk why y’all are surprised, I thought she’s actually passed this already. Record sales tally everything.

 

An amazing feat for her to be the first. Truly the GOAT :clap3:

Congrats to Nicki that’s a lot of certs considering shes only been around for so long. Truly an accomplishment 

 

Dead at half the comments here 💀💀

 

Although I do wonder what she is at without features, most of us been knew that features should of been listed first not last in that sentence though

From Wiki:

 

Trinidadian-born American rapper and singer Nicki Minaj has released four studio albums, three compilation albums, three mixtapes, one-hundred and one singles (including sixty-seven as a featured artist), and fifteen promotional singles.

 

💀

 

... So yeah. This is most impressive only if you choose to ignore the FLOOD of music, nearly 70% of which is on the shoulders of other artists. Props to her, but her stats hold up as long as you don't zoom into them. 

Why would you ignore that? That same nearly 70% have some of Nicki’s best verses and offerings tbh lol. Trey Songz got a 4x Platinum song with her. He didn’t see it before or again after. This applies to a lot of acts. Again, last couple years she has given artists their biggest smashes cause they barely if at all repeat the success. Like what’s the idea behind features being bad? Especially in hip-hop, it’s actually highly regarded to be one of the hottest artists on others track.

 

Drake, Wayne, Rihanna, Nicki.. they made their waves through their appearances and solo work and talents this last decade. And are always constantly dragged for being popular artists to collab with. Regardless of chart peak or certs even sometimes, cause being successful doesn’t equate to the quality.

Lyrical.

As if features even matter. It's still her song too. 

:skull: You people truly dumb yourselves down just to drag Nicki Minaj.

 

Queen of rap. :clap3:

I don't understand why people think it's a drag to have a ton of hits, like of these girls would be lucky to have a quarter as many as her :skull:

Cardi has sold like 30M in one year right? :skull: 

She’s certified 27M units between 2016-2019 (including her recent album and album track certifications)

Why are you trying to make this about Cardi so badly? Even then Nicki has a better per year average. Specially since most of her discography hasn’t been updated 💀

So with Queen being officially certified platinum now, does that mean that she's crossed 100 million units?

No she is now at 99.5M, because Queen was Gold already so just add another 500K to that 99M total.

Some PF songs haven't been certified since PF:RR Era or early TPP Era.  All 3 albums are pre-streaming explosion and all have under certified songs.

 

Super Bass going Diamond alone would add 2M. Same with Starships probably going 8x.

She is definitely under-certified because many songs haven't been updated. Some predict that she's actually at about 110-120 million, if all song/album certs were updated

Definitely. All of her biggest hits haven't been updated for a while.

 

Plus:

 

Va Va Voom: not certified.

Pills N Potions: not certified.

Truffle Butter: not certified.

Ball For Me: not certified.

 

They all are probably platinum, TB maybe even 2x Plat.

 

Beez In The Trap was back then close to platinum but only certified Gold.

 

And I'm sure she would snatch at least some gold plaques here and there from some album tracks/collabs. Especially with YouTube streams counting for single certifications now.

 

Even RBMS is probably platinum with 377M views :rip:

Right RBMS was close to Gold in pure sales back then. It's recurrent streams is probably skewed more towards the US so I can def see half of that 377M being from the US so probably closer to 2x Platinum.

 

Roman's Revenge was never certified. Moment 4 Life has been 2x Platinum for 8 YEARS!!! :jonny: 

 

Remember, when they updated Drake, he had singles, features, album tracks, and even some of his freestyle hits certified. Nicki isn't as powerful as she is, but I think she should be closer to 150M than 100M.

Too bad that doesn’t erase the fact that she is unable to sell more than 7k tickets per show and that most probably her tour will be canceled lol

Why are you in here? :lmao: 

 

She just did a 6 city tour in Australia/NZ and the sold out crowd went wild. Her UK leg is doing good, and she's about to announce her US leg. You underestimate her ability to have an arena tour. :lmao:
