Nicki Minaj’s ‘Super Bass’ Sells Over 3 Million Copies

Published: Sunday 30th Oct 2011 by David

Some love her while others loathe her, but there is no denying the impact Pop debutante Nicki Minaj has made on the charts.

Enjoying the well publicized success of her debut album ‘Pink Friday‘, which has now sold around 2 million copies worldwide, the former drama student now has more cause to celebrate.

As of October 23rd of this year, her single ‘Super Bass‘ has sold over 3 million copies, making it the top-selling digital single by female Hip Hop act.

More details below…

Extending its lead as the highest selling digital single to be released by a female Rapper, the cut has received a number of beneficial promotional boosts in recent months.

From being covered by Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift , to the publicity it received when two of the starlet’s younger fans rose to YouTube fame with their take on the song.

To date, that video has received 17,948,174 views.

Quite interestingly,  the record for the second highest selling digital single to be released by a Femcee is also held by Minaj for the song ‘Moment 4 Life’ which features Canadian Rapper Drake.

With her new album set for a 2012 release, there is no doubt that further releases will only serve to solidify her status as one of Pop’s more commercially viable upstarts.

Congratulations.

  14. Courtney October 30, 2011

    Um selling 3 million copies of a digital single ain’t a huge acheivement look at the Black Eyed Peas I’ve Got A Feeling has sold 7.5 million copies digitally though Interscope records hasn’t filed for a certification of 7x platinum for the single yet mind you the highest certified single in history is Elton Johns Candle In The Wind 1997/Something About THe Way You Look Tonight which is 11x platinum standard certification was given on October 9th 1997 all though a duplicate appears dated August 16th 2011 of course the proceeds from that single go to Princess Diana’s favorite charities so it’s raised a mamoth ammount of Money

  15. Yellow Gorillah October 30, 2011

    did have an impact on society !

    ^^^ JUMP OFF A CLIFF SAYING THAT COMMENT

    Looooool because some white Disney girls were singing it GURL BYE! Super Bass had no substance and the chorus was not even sung by her =S it was not even promoted for the urban chart’s

  18. Super Boss October 30, 2011

    Poor kim fans.
    Kim was ALMOST as famous as Nicki but wasn’t longsighted enough to brand herself. Now, Nicki will completely erase Kims name from Pop fans.

    To those calling Nicki a Pop star like its a bad thing,Im laughing at you because while Nicki goes from strength to strength, seeing the world and living out her dreams, Kim remains trapped in the hood.
    She’s so scared of being called a ‘sell out’ that she has spent her ENTIRE career playing the hoodcard, the only thing is- people in the hood only support you with their mouths and not their money.

    YAY FOR NICKI!

  19. Super Boss October 30, 2011

    And to Nicki fans, Nicki is Pop and proud of it, and should you.

    Pop is just a real as ANY other genre of music, look how many of these Rappers act like thugs and G’s but are really prissy pxxsies in real life, all SMART artists have an act and Nicki has hers.

    Team Minaj for life.
    Kim isnt even competition anymore lool. Kim’s biggest rivals are hoodrats with no business sense.

  27. DaDonRoMaN October 30, 2011

    @ROLLIN UP THE CATNIP & SHITTIN IN UR LITTER The Song Is 3X Platnum In The U.S Not Worlwide. Her Album Sold 2 Million Copies World Wide .

  28. The Ke$halicious Has Taken Over October 30, 2011

    And this is something to celebrate?LMAO!!! Tic Tok sold 9.4million world wide and was #1 for 9 straight weeks, longest of the decade so far

  29. Guess What October 30, 2011

    I’m not impressed with this POP b******* song. Let’s see how the next album does. Oh that’s right, Baby will buy those records as well. Her & Wayne are arguing because he dissed her by saying he wasn’t impressed with her or her nasty p**** which he’s had numerous times. She must feel lower than dirt after sleeping with the whole label like she did & they turn around and disrespect her . We all know Kim was out there, that’s never been a secret but Nicki is just as trifling. The Dirty Money crew had her & YMCMB also had her.. Yall can live in denial all you want but the truth is there. There are a lot of secrets over there with YMCMB.

  30. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE RETURNS. October 30, 2011

    Who cares???? This H** is a GIMMICK & Shitty Friday is a FLOP FLOP FLOP

    The H** has only sold 1.5 million ww

    Like artists such as GIMMICK perry, Nicki GARBAJ is just a SINGLES artist 😕

  31. Rollin Up The Catnip & Shittin In Ur Litter October 30, 2011

    @DADONROMAN
    Sorry, but Nicki is LOCAL. Super Bass has sold 3million in the U.S and 3million world wide. Pink Friday has sold 1.2million in the U.S and only 1.5million word wide, not 2million

  32. Jamir21: I LOVE BEYONCE, RIHANNA, BRITNEY, NICKI, MARIAH ! October 30, 2011

  40. HaterzStayPressed October 30, 2011

    To quote Nicki on Moment For Life

    ……… In this very moment I’m king,
    In this very moment I slay Goliath with a sling,
    This very moment I bring
    Put it on everything, that I will retire with the ring,
    And I will retire with the crown, Yes!
    No I’m not lucky I’m blessed, Yes!
    Clap for the heavyweight champ, Me!

    Congratz to Nicki for a job well done. You have elevated female hip hop to another level and a new standard. Here’s hoping more females will come out in the genre of hip hop and bring their A game. You’ve saved a dying breed – female emcees.

    Nicki said it best about her haters: “Shout out to my haters, sorry that you couldn’t phase me.”

    Nicki stans, take the high road! She will always get hated on no matter what. She didn’t let it phase her so don’t let it phase you!

  41. QueenSize October 30, 2011

    I smell b*******. The only thing poppin about nicki right now is the fact that her and her abusive boyfriend screamed and shoved their maid over a photo. Why haven’t you discussed this story? Payoff? Ass kissing? Every f****** website is talking about it from E to TMZ yet you little blogs choose to remain silent? Hhhmmm….

  42. all da time October 30, 2011

  59. skintightjeans October 30, 2011

    GO NICKI! That’s the b**** right there!

  60. RDK October 30, 2011

    i am sure none pop was mention in this you dumb ignorant,s
    Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” this week becomes the first song by a female hip hop artist to top the 3 million mark in digital sales. Minaj’s “Moment 4 Life” (featuring Drake) is next in line, with sales of 1,442,000 copies. Missy Elliott’s 2005 hit “Lose Control” (featuring Ciara and Fat Man Scoop) is in third place, with sales of 1,336,000. KEY WORD is HIP-HOP so you fu cker,s can twist it all you want the bottom line/at the end of the day this song is under the HIP-HOP banner and people in the game and critic knows what they are talking about,so you music ignants can stay there and talking sh it because yall are bias and don’t like her,but haters will be haters no matter what.

  61. RDK October 30, 2011

    maria lock your lying a-ss the fu cking maid stole from nicki,and nicki fired her then she came back the next day and wanted to start something and they get in to it and SB was there and jump between them before it got out of hand,Nicki didn’t push anyone,SB was just trying to get reed of the maid them the maid called the cups and some other sh it,i see you love drama that sh it is what gets u going them TMZ bull sh it go back over there and type you hate comments like what yall do over there,fu ck that if you are fired get the hell off my property.

  62. HaterzStayPressed October 30, 2011

    @ LALA and her many multiple personalities on TGJ… I only have one thing to say to you and your friends in your head…

    B**** GET A THERAPIST.

    Oh, maybe one more thing… Um, you said “Take you as back to elementary”

    Errr, remedial English, eh? Holla at me when you learn basic syntax. Until then please go and buy Hooked On Phonics! Wait for it…. her new personality will come out and attack me LOL haha! She got more personalities than Nicki!

    @RDK, girl you ain’t neva lied. These haters stay soooo pressed over this girl who’s doing her own thing and making her own money. *smh*

  63. DTG October 30, 2011

    I’m sick of people acting like selling 3, 4 or 5 million worldwide is supposed to be impressive. Get back to me when this cartoon’s album sells 3 million in the U.S. For as long as her album is under 2 million in the states, it’s a flop.

  64. Army Of Queen /.\ (Aaliyah) & Queen Bee (Lil Kim) >>>>>>>> Your Fave ! October 30, 2011

    So Her Single Sold More Than Her Album ?! 😉 Welp I Cant Hate , She Getting Paper ! #Get Money B****

  65. RDK October 30, 2011

    HaterzStayPressed ya so true.

  66. SBC19 October 30, 2011

    The digital age has sent standards of success into the toilet. Nothing I read there impresses me. Alert me when Nicki’s album sells 10+ million like TLC did, or 5+ million like Salt N Pepa, or even 2 million like Lil Kim. Nobody should giving a flying f*** about the sales of a digital single. I sure as hell don’t.

    Furthermore, Nicki being Pop *****IS***** a bad thing. She has little to no respect from Hip Hop audiences, and when her little “flash in the pan” moment expires with Pop audiences — and it will because they are the most fickle audience on earth, she will have no audience to fall back on and her career will be done. I expect all this to happen within the next year or so. Nicki didn’t keep it real. She didn’t keep it street. She played the Gaga/Katy Perry card and tried to appeal to their cheesy audiences. Pop rappers are jokes.

  67. Nicki STAN October 30, 2011

    @BEY’KNIGHT Actually the official SuperBass video has 174,947,518 views thank you very much. When they put the 17,000+ number that was referring to the little girl’s cover video so get ya facts straight please #YouMad ?

    @whitegirlmob….ho3,stop trinna get everybody to go 4 hreayshawn…if they like her they like her,if they don’t they don’t

    @bitchpleez…nobody noticed the first time you posted that and npbody cares the second time…how many times you gonna say that

    @courtney…it is a big acheivement for a female rapper artist…let alone one that is constantly bein crtitzied for bein a copycat but is obviously inspired

    @yellowgorilla…..actually,wen i went 2 a function they played the song and all the girls AND dudes was like AYYYYYYYYYYYYE….i ain’t even talkin bout a normal dude,im talkin pretty boy,weed smokin,class ditchin ni99as!!

  69. NICK October 30, 2011

    LOVES IT, this album really is good- every song!!! DELUXE VERSION TOO!!! 🙂 get it NICKI!!!

  70. I’ma have to send her back to her maker October 30, 2011

    Even tho, I am a nicki fan I’m so sick of that song. It’s overplayed now. I liked it when it first came out.

  71. I’ma have to send her back to her maker October 30, 2011

    Okay so 3 million WW is not good from the ppl above who mentioned that? If you’re saying ppl like the BEP and Rihanna and Kesha sold more than nicki must not be completely POP. She’s hiphop/pop and a great recording artist. She’s a hiphop artist with crossover appeal. 3 million for a single is good for a hiphop artist who JUST entered into the mainstream 2 years ago. Let’s see kim or any other female rapper do that in this generation….*sips tea*

  72. I’ma have to send her back to her maker October 30, 2011

    Sorry. I mean 3x in the US. Not WW.

  73. I’ma have to send her back to her maker October 30, 2011

    @rollin in the catnip

    You stan for kreayshawn? you know there are A LOT of people who hate krayons more than nicki? Kreayshawn is not real hiphop. She sucks and majority agree she’s the worst female hiphop artist we’ve seen come up. There’s not ONE REAL hiphop artist that have given kreayshawn props. Kreayshawn falls in the category of pop. Black females like nicki work hard to revive the dead female hiphop genre and we got white girls like kreayshawn and V-nasty thinking they rep female hiphop. WHATEVER. Just two little wiggers.

  74. RDK October 30, 2011

    SBC19 seems you are stock in the 90,s to early 2000 when albums was actually selling….a rapper selling that much a female one at that is a big accomplishment in this day and age were people don’t buy hip-hop music like that no more everyone just download sh-it for free,only hip-hop artist i see selling know is Eminem and he bin doing that from the get got…you can count the amount of hip-hop artist on one hand that went platinum from late 05 to 011…for a female rapper to have a platinum album and gold,platinum and 3x plat single is a big accomplishment in this time and age[i think Wiz Khalif black and yellow is certified triple platinum i think] so you need to put your mind in a time machine and bring it up to date in 011 to your body……………and I’ma have to send her back to her maker why would you right something like that on here the epicenter of Nicki minaj,s haters keep something like that to your self,if people like the song it,s going to get mad spin you think we are the only nicki fans other is going to want to hear the song too,on the other hand i winder if that is the real you…..because they have people using peoples name to talk sh-it.

  75. I’ma have to send her back to her maker October 30, 2011

    @Rdk I love nicki and you know I always defend her but superbass is what I am sick of and I am just being honest. I did like PF and the majority of the songs tho. Here I am and blazin should be getting more exposure. I feel like Superbass doesn’t give nicki justice. But I am proud that the song has gotten to be as popular as it has now. I was really over the song tho since last year.

  76. RDK October 30, 2011

    I’ma have to send her back to her maker..aaa it is the real you,i know you like nicki i wasn’t questioning that..i am just saying when you say certain things the haters will jump on it and try to make something out of nothing you know how they do,they love to twist peoples words and sh-it.

    Stuck in the 90s, my b***….I just don’t accept mediocrity and dismiss it because it’s the signs of the times. Yeah, the 90s and early 00s absolutely did have healthier album sales…so there’s no reason why that shouldn’t still be the case now.

    As far as I’m concerned, someone’s album sales aren’t passable until their album sells over 2 million in the U.S., and that’s just barely passable. I wouldn’t call anyone sales good until they are at at least 3 million U.S., and an album isn’t a blockbuster until it moves over 5 million U.S.

    I realize few have accomplished this in the past three or four years, so I have no problem with writing them ALL off as flops.

    You tweens STAY typing long paragraphs and cussing people out. Calm down, seriously. People speculate about everyone but the real talk RIGHT NOW is that you’re only as good as your last hit and “fans” change their decision to buy your music as fast as the weather. Popstars need a sufficient catalog of hits to be remembered so if Nicki Minaj cares to infuse so much “pop” into her “hip-hop”, she needs more than one studio album worth of hits. When you shoot up too soon you crash fast. It will be interesting to see what happens not only to Nicki Minaj but her counterpart, Drake.

    Just pass a congratz and keep it moving

    Me as a fan of hip hop I am NOT impressed! I don’t want a POP song representing female rappers as the highest selling single. I would have been major happy if “Did It Om Em” did those numbers instead of an overproduced POP song like Superbass, cuz that song hard as a MOFO and it’s what hip hop fans like me like.
