Whether you love or loathe Onika, it’s literally impossible to deny the poignant nature of this feat. No other female rapper has headlined the iconic O2 in London or many of the other venues listed. That, friends, is called impact.
While it’s clear the Young Money maven is pandering to her global audience (and wracking up International album sales in the process); it’ll be interesting to see if a US trek is in the pipeline. For, while her sales in that region are respectable this go round (540,000 sold since April), they don’t (at all) reflect her level of media penetration.
In any case, it’s evident that she’s willing to work for her status. Hence, should she embark on a Stateside jaunt, it could be exactly what the album needs commercially.
