Nicki Minaj Out Magazine shoot Global Sales: Nicki Minajs Starships Hits 7.2 Million

She’s the Rap Empress currently guiding a gang of  new Pop hopefuls to the top on FOX’s ‘American Idol’.

Now, before she returns to judging duty on the show later on this week, Nicki Minaj extends her own run at the height of Pop with news we’re sure will leave  her detractors pressed, perplexed and reaching their nearest box of Kleenex today.

Find out why below…

Since its release on February 14th 2012, her Red One produced jam ‘Starships’ now boasts sales of 7.2 million units sold worldwide, after being certified Quadruple Platinum by the Recording Industry Association Of America for US sales of over 4 million units. Sales, generated by December 31st 2012.


Epic.

Of course, while some Hip Hop loyalists will no doubt downplay the cut’s success with ‘but it’s a Dance song’ talk, one has to remember the simple point that follows.

This, being that consumers have and will always respond to how a song and the artist behind it makes them feel, regardless of genre.

Indeed, as many a one hit wonder will attest to, releasing ‘Dance’ singles have never guaranteed chart success as gargantuan as Nicki’s, and in most cases do not aid in the shifting of the albums that follow (see Pitbull and Flo Rida).

What makes ‘Starships’  sales figures all the more impressive, is that they cement Nicki’s status as an artist with enough pull to sell music from any genre, contrary to the beliefs of naysayers who for so long have convinced themselves that only her Pop heavy material could move noteworthy numbers.

Sure, while these numbers don’t excuse the mess that was ‘Reloaded‘s promo campaign, they do shed fresh on light on why the likes of FOX, MAC and Pepsi have gotten into bed with the Rapper, all hoping to bite into a brand built by a woman too many have made the mistake of underestimating.


With over 5 million LPs sold worldwide since November 2010, there’s no doubt in our minds that this won’t be the last time Ms.Minaj exceeds expectations…let’s just hope the world is ready for her when she does.

Your thoughts?

    All that means is that there are at least 7,200,000 idiots in this world.

    ThatGrapeJuice might as well stop covering hip-hop ENTIRELY. They have obviously sided with the enemy in the war ahead (pop vs. hip-hop soul). And just like rock-n-roll beat disco, HIP-HOP/SOUL WILL BEAT POP!

    This is so sad. I am not buying this! Shitty Garbaj can’t even go platinum in SALES with her second album. She re-released the s*** and flopped again! She is the female Flo-Rida. She can sell singles, but the b**** can’t sell albums. Her third album will be a major flop in sales.

    Even though I respect her hustle… I think the People is Really starting to get over Nicki. American idol’s RATINGS have been DISMAL ( how come TGJ never did an article on that?). FREAKS is not holding up on the ITunes Charts, nor is it getting many RADIO airplay. Yes, while Nicki’s singles has been doing Great, HER ALBUM OVERALL SALES HAS BEEN DISGUTING!… & I believe that is why her CAMP has TONED down her LOOK in Recent weeks. American Idol faithful despises her ( check their Facebook page). Iggy & teyana taylor is promoting Adidas, & beyonce has Pepsi’s FULL ATTENTION. While I believe nicki is still marketable… She has to when the GP back to take MINAJ INC to the next level. I have seen this done to HAMMER & Vanilla Ice.

    Congrats on your pop/eurodance single, the Ghetto Barbz are clinging onto this single and Pound the Alarm for dear LIFFEEEE as FLOP by my side & FLOP in the trap(HIP HOP SINGLE) failed to make any noise on the charts

    Roman FLOPloaded was STILL a failure :( the album was released in April, certified platinum in June and still hasn’t sold 1 million in the US :(

    Onigger is DONE!

    I dunno why people still question why its a pop song. SHE IS RAPPING ON THE f****** SONG, which is her being a rapper. So hip hop or no hip hop she is still the best selling FEMALE RAPPER. Look at what she did with her rapping on a pop song! can ur fav do it? even if its basic who else had the balls to do it? NO ONE BUT NICKI MINAJ! and she took all the hate comments and shoved it in the bin. And what did that get her? 7.2 million selling single. At the end of the day she’s an artist no one had a goat rihanna from making a U turn from reggae to pop. Rihanna still does all kinds of music and she is successful.

    So just stop with the “she a sell out” comments because she still does hip hop you fuckwits just dickride other peoples comments and dont educate urself before commenting.

    I HATE TO SAY THIS BUT IN THIS MALE DOMINATED INDUSTRY, NO ONE IS CHECKING FOR ANY FEMALE RAPPERS PERIOD ANYMORE. IT’S SAD BUT TRUE. I GUESS ONCE ALL THE GREATS FEEL OFF LIKE KIM, FOXY, EVE & MISSY. NOBODY IS FEELING FEMALE RAPPERS FOR SOME REASON. EVEN NICKI OK SHE CAME OUT AT A TIME WHEN THERE WERE NO FEMALE RAPPERS PERIOD. AND TRUTHFULLY THERE STILL AREN’T ANY THAT’S IN THE LIMELIGHT LIKE SHE IS. BUT SHE HAS DEFINITELY HIT HER PEAK IN HER 3 YEARS OF FAME..NOW ITS ON A DECLINE FOR SURE. AND SEE NICKI WINS BY DEFAULT ONLY BECAUSE THERE’S NO ONE UP AGAINST HER. IF SHE WOULD’VE CAME OUT WHEN THERE WAS PLENTLY OF COMPETITION LIKE THE OTHER FEMALE RAPPERS DID THAT CAME BEFORE HER AND STILL MOVE NUMBERS LIKE SHE’S MOVING NOW..THEN I’LL BE IMPRESSED…THEN SHE CAN CALL HERSELF AN ICON, LEGEND, QUEEN ETC.
