While there’s been an effort by some Pop sects to downplay her commercial success, there’s no denying Nicki Minaj‘s pull on charts the world over.
Not sure what we mean?
Well, watching her latest single ‘Pound The Alarm’ rise 118 UK spots in the space of two weeks in the UK, its predecessor ‘Starships’ break the US chart record for spending the most consecutive weeks in the Top Ten, the Rapper welcomed more good news hours ago.
For, in what extends her lead as Pop’s highest selling debutante, the MC’s first album ‘Pink Friday’ has been certified Gold in the Philippines for shipments of 10,000 copies.
Awarded with a Gold plaque during her visit to the nation, her latest feat arrives before the launch of her UK arena tour this winter.
A tour, which will make her one of the only Rappers of any genre to headline at London’s 02 Arena.
