Weigh In: Not One Album Released This Year Has Gone Platinum

Top Three Selling Albums of The Year Were All Released In 2013

thatgrapejuice collage Weigh In:  Not One Album Released This Year Has Gone Platinum

The year’s fourth quarter is being greeted with dismal news:  not one single album released this year has been certified platinum.

Indeed, despite at least 60 songs shifting over 1 million copies, their parent albums cannot proclaim such.  We thought things were bad last year when only five albums went platinum, led by Justin Timberlake‘s ’20/20 Experience’ (which had sold over 2 million copies by last year’s closing).  But, this year’s looking to be much worse.

To add insult to injury, 2014’s best selling album by a solo act is Beyonce‘s self titled fifth album…which was released in December 2013.

We’re waiting on Rihanna, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift to save the day.

Nicki Minaj has left quite ‘The Pinkprint’ on the industry since blazing onto the scene five years ago. It’s entirely apt, then, that the rapper is readying an album titled exact that for release on November 24th.

Already in the thick of the promo push for the set since the Summertime, the ‘Anaconda’ MC shows her fashion bite a-front of the November 2014 issue of L’Uomo Vogue.

The shoot, which toys with the concept of androgyny, is an interesting juxtaposition to the the traditional gender roles the star says she longs for when starting her own family in her accompanying interview.
