Maybe by way of all the ‘noise’ that disturbed her brand this year, it’s become quite easy to forget that Nicki Minaj – whether you like it or not- is one of Pop’s highest selling contributors.

Sure, though the shoddy handling of her sophomore LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ has made it easy for her naysayers to deny this, the fact remains that with 1 million copies sold world wide since April, the project is the only Rap album released this year to peak at #1 is as many markets as it did.

Markets, which include the UK, US, Canada and Japan.

Now, despite its poorly managed promo campaign, her single ‘Pound The Alarm’ has now sold over 1 million copies in the US alone.

Details below…

A testament to the Rapper’s commercial pull, ‘Alarm‘ has now exceeded sales of 1 million US units since its June 12th 2012 release.

Peaking at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100, the cut’s success follows that of its predecessor ‘Starships’ which edges closer to sales of 1 million in the UK but sits pretty with sales of 3.5 million in the US. Frustrating, as one can only imagine how much better  both singles would have done if given the push afforded to 2010’s ‘Superbass’.

However, if the global sales of ‘Reloaded’ and the success of its singles are anything to by, it would be foolish to write Ms. Minaj off as a ‘flop- as many a detractor has found themselves doing.

For, if she’s able to move 1 million worldwide and millions singles in the US alone without the benefit of an effective promo run, imagine what numbers lay in wait for her when she does get it all together.

…and as for the critics:

        it’s not facts. Beyonce has 16 Grammys, has 8 X plat albums, 4 X Plat albums, 3 X Plat Albums, and 5 X Plat Singles. Beyonce and flop don’t go in the same sentence. I admit “4” was not her best era, but she’s only had 1 bad era. Rihanna has had her fair share of them. Don’t act like she got more than 1 multi plat album f*****.

She has sold 2 million album in the USA which is the only place that matters in sales! How many times is she gonna re-release her cd before she understands its a FLOP! All of her credits are singles! Which anyone can do! Tamar Braxton just release a single and it went to # 1 in 12 hours of its release! Nicki hasnt even seen those type of numbers yet! All you Nicki stans need to die just like her album sales! I love how Sam loves to reach for the stars with garbage like this! This shows me that young people will pay for quantity vs quality.

    Yes! Everyone is entitled to their opinion about Nicki, but I will never understand how a person who hates Nicki manages to comment on every post that she is associated with.. If you don’t like Nicki Minaj then your actions should reflect just that..
    Secondly 2012 has been a rough year for Nicki, but I know she’ll bounce back from it with The Pink Print in Fall 2013.. She just really needs to take a break from music & enjoy the riches she’s earned, she has had completely too much exposure in a short time frame.. I know Nicki will never give or quit, she’s not built that way & has too much hustle in her.. Pound The Alarm Going platinum is just another accomplishment of the year, CAN’T WAIT FOR IDOL..

      You’re VANISHING girl…..Surely I would
      Hear the distant laughter
      Wasn’t it you and me
      Surviving the night
      You’re fading out of my sight
      Swiftly
      Chorus:
      You’re vanishing
      Drifting away

    Nicki will never fall into irrelevancy with her haters following her every step, minor or major. It warms my heart! :)

    Regardless of all the hate Nicki gets, Her platinum sales say it’s all love. I don’t think people hate Nicki as much as they pretend to anyway. For example: That (Truth) person with the long as username is always the first to click on a post about Nicki. The (Truth) is He/She really loves Nicki. I think if He/She would be honest with themself and own up to being a Nicki fan they’d be less pressed. The winning team #TeamMinaj > #StruggleTeam
