Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday’ Certified Platinum

nicki minaj pink friday e1287158467502 Nicki Minajs Pink Friday Certified Platinum

Congratulations are most certainly in order for Nicki Minaj. The Young Money star has seen her debut LP ‘Pink Friday’ certified Platinum by the RIAA.

Awarded for US shipments of one million (+), the magnitude of the feat is heightened when considering Minaj, real name Onika Maraj, released the LP merely a month ago.

—————————————

Though Minaj remains a figure of much debate, it’s hard to deny the positive ripple effect her success will have for female Hip-Hop.

Needless to say, those at the top of the industry hierarchy are primarily concerned with their profit margins; and with Nicki almost single-handedly reviving interest in female Hip-Hop, her acheivements will no doubt facilitate the signing of a new crop of female MC’s. What’s more, her success also re-opens doors for those who’ve been struggling to re-affirm their place in the ever-changing musical landscape (see: Trina, Eve, and Lil’ Kim). Again, not because “the suits” particularly care for female Hip-Hop. No. Rather, because there is clearly money to be made – again.

In any case, things are looking up for female Hip-Hop; and love her or loathe her, Ms. Minaj is a prime catalyst for it.

Your thoughts?

    Sorry Sam but ur wrong, the RIAA goes by shippments, not sales. Pink Friday has shipped 1 million copies, it has only sold around 685K, the same thing happened when Drake released Thank Me Later, ppl though he went platinum in 1 month with his album was only at 750K after one month. But that’s still really good, 1 million shippments in one month

    First congrats to Nicki! 2nd: I agree with Sam sayin that she opens the door to female MCs again but she also force that image on them..the image of big ass and boobs and always lookin hot and pretty!! My question is “If she wasnt a “cartoon” would she have been that popular?” ..so my point is “Now female MCs will have to “w****” thmselves to be famous”

    (TO HELL WITH IT: let’s keep it 1000%)

    Nicki has “pushed Rihanna” off of the “U.S. Pop-scene!” Don’t believe me? …Go and see just how much comments/hits Nicki generates as compared to Rihanna! Nicki has WAY-TOO-MUCH hype, command-of-stage/showmanship and charisma! (as opposed to Rihanna’s tired, fast-fading, spent and talent-less azz!)

    …And what Nicki has done to Rihanna, here in the U.S., she’ll THEN DO to Rihanna, when she tours the U.K./Europe. Never-you-mind that she’s a “female rap artist”; “your love” was as-good-as a Pop/R&B/Hip-Hop song as any! (Or at least, as any as Rihanna as ever done)

    …SO FOR NOW, Nicki WILL SMILE IN RIHANNA’S FACE WHILE SHE PULLS THE TRIGGER! (it must be something to NOW be in Rihanna’s shoes: “doom”, “the end”, and “a certain obscurity” NOW IS CERTAIN for Rihanna/Brand-Rihanna/Camp-Fenty (not a moment too soon)….!!)

    But the “changing of the guard(s)” doesn’t end here; OH NO…!!! Lady Gaga has, at the very least, forced Beyonce to “share the stage”!
    Think about it: Scary/not-at-all attractive/weird/sexually ambiguous/meat-dress wearing Lady Gaga has, in ONLY 2-years, forced Beyonce to share the stage with her. And in 2-years FROM NOW? Lady Gaga would have completely forced her into irrelevancy!

    “…Foolishness. …Rubbish …Nonsense” <– You're all now saying. No, never Beyonce! But just 2-years ago, who'd have EVER imagined a weird, strange, meat-dress wearing sexual ambiguity like Lady Gaga to NOW be the most selling artist of 2010?

    @ Y,”and Z” – still delusional i see. Niki’s sales will slow down soon enough. Ri has longevity. BTW, this week Ri was at #3 and Niki was #4. Only diff b/w their sales right now is the first week sales. Which as you can see from the past most of your favs start out strong and them taper off.

    Pink Friday is VERY lackluster, to me, with only a few REALLY good songs, i.e. Did It On ‘em, Moment 4 Life, Fly, and Blazin’, and maybe Super Bass & Last Chance (only because of Natasha Bedingfield). But Congrats to her!

    @REALLY re: Jan 5th, 2011 5:59pm —

    1.)”still delusional i see. Niki’s sales will slow down soon enough. Ri has longevity”
    2.)”which as you can see from the past most of your favs start out strong and them taper off”

    “Delusional”, based on what? How can YOU say anything regarding “my favs, and their tapering off” when “Pink Friday” is Niki Minaj’s FIRST ALBUM….??? CBreezy’s “Deuces” is STILL on Billboard’s Top10, and “Takers” went #1! The facts, which you seem to conveniently forget:

    1.) Rihanna has NEVER done anything that had ‘gone platinum’ as fast as “Pink Friday” has.
    2.) Nicky’s has pushed Rihanna, as far as the “U.S. Pop Scene” into irrelevance.
    3.) Europe/The U.K. has “only known” mediocrity: Rihanna/Brand-Rihanna! You can be sure, when Nicki tours The U.K./Europe, she’ll do to Rihanna, what she did to her, here in the U.S.:push her into a certain dark-and-unforgiving irrelevance!

    To state/prove a “delusional state of mind”, you must have something to place it against; as a measure! Your use of the term/word is ill-advised, if not outright, incorrect; in THIS case, there is no “track record” to speak of, as “Pink Friday” is Nicki’s first CD!

    “…Rihanna’s longevity” isn’t infinite! If it were:
    1.) She’d NOT have had to cancel/downsize her recent “last girl on earth” concert/venue tour dates!
    2.) She’d not have had the poor sales, at least here in the U.S., as she had, given DEF JAM’S HUGE BANKROLL, (AND EVEN LARGER) HYPE/MARKETING MACHINE: she’s terribly underperformed!

    So, your labeling me: “delusional(?)” ; I’ve now discredited, and you’re now dismissed!

    @ TRACI SUMMERS Your acting like she was never underground. Back 08 she won the Hip Hop underground award. she paid her dues. Lil Kim never was under ground. she jumped right in on Biggies coattail. And she was crowned Queen right after her first album. So whats the problem with people calling Nicki the queen. Even Biggie was crowned King after 1 album. he only put out 2 and is considered the best to ever to do it. You can’t consider your opinion fact. its only opinion justlike my comments

    Most artist flame dies down after a while that will happen. If that is the determiner of her being wack then you have to admit Lil Kim been wack for a long time. She has only become relevant again because of Nicki. I mean Lil Kim is a beast on the mic. But to say nicki isn’t hip hop because of what she raps about. Her album if you listen is about having high self-esteem. trials and tribulations of a young girl. Love, Love lost, and rhymes. Not one d*** was sucked, not one p**** is eaten out. Some people like that and thats fine roll with it. but if that is what real hip hop is considered then you can keep that s*** ~ End truth

    What Lil Kim done isn’t new. 1st you (by you I mean lil kim fans) say she stole her style with the wigs and black barbie. That lets me know all of you have never heard of GRACE JONES who originated the black barbie look in the 70’s. 2nd Lil Kim style was created by BIG she originally wanted to rap gangsta but he told her to rap about s** so there goes originality. if you really knew hip hop then you would know that when Nicki was talking about old female rappers she was talking about some of the underground femcees like “Reece Steele” who was coming at her. Reece dissed nicki over the “Grindin” Beat and Nicki came back over the same beat and Lil Kim thought it was about her. After BIG died the only album to do well was the NOTORIOUS KIM. the rest flopped and still are not platinum. Lil Kim grammy she brags about was for a POP song lady marmalade. so there goes your argument about pop/hip hop. even the crew roll with tody IRS stands for International Rock Stars not hip hop stars. you don’t know her personally too know her attitude. and Lil Kim has ghost writers that is confirmed

    Nicki has broken records that Lil Kim has never reached so to say she’s not doing much is really a mute point. I’m not saying crown Nicki the queen but to say she’s not doing nothing come on man. Your opinion of lyrics is just that OPINION. Lyrically Nicki is a beast. but thats my opinion. Kims rhymes in my opinon is the same. Suck this, eat that, swallow this. Yeah really versatile. just my opinion….But the thing is i really don’t like lil kim so I don’t login to blogs and stories about her to speak negative about her. seems like a waste of my time to do that.

    Oh I didn’t know The Emperor of Hip Hop was in here CHILE PLEASE I didn’t know you decided what hip hop is. I could see if you said there is some hip hop I don’t like. But to say it isn’t because you don’t like it is like saying. This chocolate ice cream isn’t real Ice cream because I don’t like it GTFOH. Old heads from the 80’s said the same thing about hip hop in the 90’s saying it wasn’t hip hop. history repeating itself. they said Lil kim wasn’t hip hop but a hip h**. do you even remember that

    “NOW DO YOU SEE HOW STUPID THAT SOUNDS XYZ COMPARING RAPPERS TO SINGERS!!!” <– See: Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop chart…!! …Has ANYTHING Drake done been #1, OVER 8-weeks, and has been on said R&B/Hip Hop chart, as long as "Deuces"…??? NO! …In this age of "the download" an artist isn't "just a "CD-moving-vehicle", NO! He/She MUST have access to, AND THRIVE, in film/TV(reality TV). Drake has YET to even enter that market! Er…and can't Drake be heard, on several of his more popular songs, singing? Isn't Drake a rapper/singer…?? YES!

    Drake, and Trey Songz ONLY SOLD, the numbers they did, because of "Feb 8th-2009". But since THAT is quickly-fading from memory, and given the success of "Deuces" and "Takers", it's only too apparent: Chris Brown is back! HE is to be our next KING OF POP! ONLY HE, can dance as MJ did, or TAKE-COMMAND of a stage, as MJ once did! NONE-BUT 21-YEAR-OLD Christopher Maurice Brown – THE NEW KING OF POP!

    But even from the far-reaches of Cyber Space, I can feel your pain: Nicki Minaj has completely surpassed, and given her current momentum and trajectory, will force Lil' Kim (as she's done with Rihanna) into that cold stillness: OBLIVION…!!

    (Irrelevancy has no zip code, better "stan-for" Kim while she's still visible…!!)

    Love her or hate her, I think that Nicki has definitely PROVEN herself with her debut album. I’m actually very surprised at the albums performance on the chart. It has yet to leave the top 10 and it has been one of the strongest sellers this holiday season. She has a lot to be proud of and she showed the doubters what she is made of. Congrats Nicki and keep doing you because it has obviously payed off…A LOT.

    Don’t you all find it strange that you’re trying to convince others to see your way of thinking. We’re all entitled to our opinion. Why should you feel the need to the defend the success of one artist over the next. We’re all fans of one or the other. We should all get lives already. I support the artist i like as everyone else should. Whether you’re for Nicki or against her, she’s going to sell to those she appeals to and in turn support her.

    “OH … L,O,”AND L “OUT… !!!” <– 0_o SWING-AND-A-MISS…!!!

    …As far as Drake, Chris and "the charts"; (I labored in vain) It's called: "Billboard R&B/Hip Hop chart". Not "Billboard R&B" and, then-there separate, "Billboard Hip-Hop chart." The example I used, what I had referenced, was THAT SAID CHART. Long-story short(?) For the sake of Billboard(used in our discourse, the two are one-in-the-same….!!)

    And you're -either slightly-and-or-completely daft- NOT to realize that Drake/Trey Songz/Justin Bieber ONLY got their "so-far recognition" BECAUSE of "Feb 8th, 2009 Chrianna!" Immediately there-after, everyone wrote-Chris-off, for dead! "He's finished" they all said! (but they didn't speak for us; us, as in, "the masses." We demanded: we wanted to see Chris pay homage to MJ! Enough so, that BET was FORCED to submit to us, the consumers. Alas, CBreezy and the heart-felt 2010 performance!) And since that BET performance? "Deuces" #1 and "Takers" #1

    "YOU COMPARED RIHANNA TO NICKY OFF OF WHAT FIRST WEEK ALBUM SALES" <– Where, when and how? Given the momentum of her NOW-THEREBOUTS-3-WEEK'S-WORTH-OF SALES. Nicki has FAR-EXCEEDED ANY OF WHAT RIHANNA HAS DONE; FAR-FAR EXCEEDED…..!!!! The blogs no-longer talk about "fashionista Rihanna"! No-longer are the blogs all-so-enthralled by Rihanna and her everyday "sidewalk fashion-fair"….!!

    The masses have ALREADY spoken:
    1.) Out-with (the talentless and worn): Rihanna.
    2.) In-with the fresh, new, TALENTED and exciting: Nicki Minaj!
    3.)"Deuces" (for some 6-months now) in the Top-10 on the MySpace chart. And, in as many months on/in Billboard's Top-10 R&B/HIP-HOP chart! (social network users/subscribers actually buy stuff)

    (hacking through the dense vegetation – no rest for the weary; and hoping my efforts aren't in vain, I'll again reiterate…)
    …When you buy a Drake/CBreezy CD, you buy both R&B/Hip Hop! What artist today, DOESN'T have a rapper, rapping over some R&B singer?

    And, as much as you're in denial, the evidence is OVERWHELMING: Nicki Minaj has retired Rihanna to "anonymous irrelevance"..!! And when Nicki decides to tour The U.K./Europe, you can THEN sound the death-knell of Brand-Rihanna! Rihanna no-longer generates the interest she once did – SHE'S FINISHED…!! Nicki Minaj is now the NEW "IT GIRL….!!!" And given these now-reported numbers, it's safe-to-say, Nicki didn't "only just" sell to Urban audiences, she's crossed-over. More-to-the-point: mainstream audiences have crossed over to purchase "Pink Friday"!

    But today(for you) must be a difficult day, indeed:
    1.) Nicki going platinum
    2.) Lil' Kim now made to look bitter, reaching and old
    3.) Rihanna (with today's reported numbers)being pushed into irrelevancy!

    …Rihanna and Lil' Kim: two casualties of "The Harajuku Barbie."

    First id like to say CONGRATULATIONS NICKI!!
    But also..honestly, i could UNDERSTAND if some of you were saying
    “nicki cant rap,shes a w****,shes fake,she has no substance” etc..If you guys were comparing her to someone like Lauryn hill..but to downgrade nicki and praise KIM is ridiculous!!
    Nicki has done WAY more for female hip hop than kim..
    All kim did was make females feel like they needed to be sexed up to be hearrd!
    The femcees on “My Mic Sounds Nice” even said so!
    Nicki is opening doors for female hip hop and has SINGLE HANDEDLY made it relevant again..im not gonna say shes the queen but she definantly deserves respect..
    Nicki has MUCH more substance than kim i.e fly,autobiography,dear old nicki,M4L,can anybody hear me,save me,here i am,n***** etc.. while kim is a ONE SUBJECT rapper who only speaks about how much shes the s*** & her burnt ass p****..
    Pink friday may be pop, but LYRICALLY she came hard..she was extremely versatile & i can guarantee you her sophomore effort will win her the respect she deserves..
    Do you realize how many records this girl has broke?
    Nicki was on her grind for THREE years,put out three mixtapes,dvds,over 30 collabs & worked HARD AS HELL to get where shes at today..while, kim met the right person, he saw somethin in her & started writing music for her

    If NICKI came out when kim did,under BIGGIES wing, shed be considered the QUEEN OF HIP HOP right now..

    Lets actually be honest..we all know that theyre only judged because of who and what era theyre associated with.

    Some of you ignorant self hatting baboons. Nicki minajs album is what hip hop needs. To say its not hip hop is because u all have been embracing the sad state of hip hop we have endured through this decade. s**, guns, drugs. Since Nickis album strays away from that and she’s a black female rapper, Its not real rap? Get the f*** out of here.

    One thing Nicki Minaj has over Lil kim is her ability to include inspiration into her lyrical creations. I love Pink friday for songs like FLY and Im the best. When has Lil Kim inspired anyone besides inspiring them to guzzle on a d***. Nickis record brought hip hop back to its core and I applaud her for that. Give the girl her props. She is opening doors for female rappers again and doing it in a way that uplifts the culture of hip hip. I was tired of all the “make it rain stripper songs” defining hip hop.

    Our culture is better than that. Black people we do have brains. We can touch on different things than what we have been tolerating. Stop putting up with the b*******. It’s all apart of the slave mentality. We have to end it Now. Congradulations to Nicki and I hope we see more like her in the future.
