It may have taken its time to do it, but today saw Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘ bring news we’re sure will have many a ‘Barb‘ beaming.
Marking the latest feat scored by the Rap release, it has now been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Full story below…
With over 900,000 copies sold worldwide, the LP has been certified Platinum in the US for shipments of 1,000,000- extending her lead as one of 2012′s highest selling acts, and cementing her status as one of the fastest selling Rappers in chart history.
All this, without the benefit of a US #1 single and the first week sales many had hoped to see the Rapper rake in on in the week commencing April 2nd.
Set to hit the 1 million copies sold worldwide mark by July’s end, these sales are likely to land Minaj a favorable spot on Billboard’s 2012 Year- End chart.
The same chart, which saw her debut album ‘Pink Friday‘ outsell Rihanna‘s ‘Loud’ and Chris Brown‘s ‘FAME‘ in the US.
Well done Barbz!
