Powered by the pure units her material has been moving since she burst onto the scene in 2007, Nicki Minaj has now solidified her status as the highest-selling female rapper of all time by becoming the 4th most-certified female artist in U.S. chart history.
Good news for the performer below…
Of Minaj’s four albums, only one of them (‘The Pinkprint’) was released after streaming data was factored into chart positions and records meaning the lion’s share of the rapper’s numbers were amassed the old fashioned away.
This fact is one she’ll undoubtedly bare in mind now that she has learned that she has received enough certifications to become the 4th most-certified female artist in the world…now tied with her ‘American Idol‘ co-star Mariah Carey.
The current number of certified units Minaj has sold in millions? 28.5…million.
With this, she extends her pure sales lead over the likes of Selena Gomez, Cardi B, Missy Elliott, Lil Kim, One Direction, The Chainsmokers, Sam Smith, Jason Derulo & Miley Cyrus.
Her new album ‘Queen’ drops August 10th.
