‘Pink Friday’: Nicki Minaj Makes Top Selling Albums Of The Decade Tally

Published: Saturday 27th Jul 2013 by David

Not since the heights reached by Missy Elliott and Lauryn Hill has a female Rapper enjoy sales that see her go to to toe-and at times outsell- her Pop star contemporaries.

This time around, that female Rapper is none other than ‘Envy’ maestra Nicki Minaj whose debut album ‘Pink Friday‘ continues to solidify her time atop her field even three years after release.

For, with 3.8 million units worldwide, the album is now officially one of the highest selling albums of the decade- celebrated in a tally which showcases US sales moved since 2010.

Of course, while this decade has seven years to go before it ends, the list below tells many an interesting tale and – in Nicki‘s case- explain why the likes of Pepsi, MAC and Fox have all been so eager to nab a piece of her commercial pie.

Check it out below…

49. Maroon 5 – Hands All Over – 1,328,000
50. Black Keys – El Camino – 1,325,000

Kudos to Justin Timberlake’s ‘The 20/20 Experience’ who made it #16 less than a year after its release.

Of course, the biggest congratulations goes to Adele’s ‘21′ and its continued winning streak, and here’s to the coming years seeing this decade spawn more albums akin to it on all fronts.

With the above in mind, we know we’re not the only ones hoping Beyonce has serious plans in place to dominate this tally in the years to come with what many hope will be her strongest era to date, following the 2 million units worldwide she now enjoys with ‘4’.

Side note: Who else was mind blown to learn how many units GaGa’s ‘The Fame’ had sold in the last two years…five years removed from its debut?

      Just stop. They congratulated the both of them.

    • Lana Del Slay July 27, 2013

      Calm down, this is actually a positive thread so take your negativity elsewhere.

  8. LambsUnite July 27, 2013

    Do you know what, I’m not a hater so well done Nicki.

  9. JOHNVIDAL July 27, 2013

    Crap article! Not once did they mention these are sales in the USA. I don´t know, when you pretend to have any credibility those type of things are really important you know… And Nicki Minaj is the heading of the post because…. lol
    Congrats Adele, you slayed everybody!
    Mumford and Sons, Lady Antebellum, Lady Gaga… and sadly Taylor Swift and Justin Beiber are the winners.

    • BarbzRUs July 27, 2013

      For, with 3.8 million units worldwide, the album is now officially one of the highest selling albums of the decade- celebrated in a tally which showcases US sales moved since 2010.

      Don’t be jealous dear. What year did Memoirs come out again?

      • JOHNVIDAL July 27, 2013

        The thing is they are biased. Memoirs came out in 2009, why you ask?

  10. Slaylor Swift July 27, 2013

    Yaaaas Taylor b**** you better slay these h*** her only real competition is Adele & Lady gaga… Im dying at beyonce being at the bottom her fans swears she the king & can sell albums yet she getting outsold by kesha & nicki lol

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

      Beyonce has only released 1 album in the new decade. Overall, she’s sold 30.5 million albums in the states alone more than Faylor has sold in the entire world…(assuming Faylor is even known anywhere outside the states and Canada), not to mention her worldwide 60M+ sales …..

  11. Paula July 27, 2013

    And the navy have the NERVE to call “4” a FLOP???
    Where is TALK THAT TALK?? Where is UNAPOLOGETIC???

  12. Molly July 27, 2013

    The struggle is REAL for beyonce. kiiii

  13. Molly July 27, 2013

    Sam give Adele the credit not Nicki Minaj

  14. LaLopez July 27, 2013

    The fact that Nicki and Rihanna are there and Mariah isn’t.

    • Molly July 27, 2013


    • JOHNVIDAL July 27, 2013

      Mariah has not released any albums since 2010 you retarded hater… lol

      • Bey-Minaj July 27, 2013

        Ummm Pink Friday was released in 2010, so what’s your point @John.

  15. CandyWarhol July 27, 2013

    Not to s*** stir, but congratz to all the girls on the list and shame on the girls who didn’t make it.

  16. Hk July 27, 2013

    All those sales yet Beyonce’s STILL more critically acclaimed than those 2 put together?
    Beyonce doesn’t need left overs when she gets the important things.

    Box office records
    World tour numbers
    Oscar nominations
    Presidential performances
    A rich husband

    Shall I proceed?

    Rihanna gets dissed by her own fans AND the critics, while Nicki is yet to release and real hip hop album. Did I mention that her own home town doesn’t mess with her? New Yorkers don’t respect frauds!

    • Anon July 27, 2013

      Small town mentality. Do you think she’s thinking about what New Yorkers think of her when she’s looking after her family or when her mom knows she never has to worry about money because her daughter achieved her dream?

      New Yorkers can keep their hatred because Nicki is keeping her shine.

    • FentySoSnatched July 27, 2013

      B**** boo bye, you are pressed and distressed.

  17. OVODasher July 27, 2013


  18. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    Oh I thought Beyonce was the queen, where is she on the list??

    • Monstarebel July 27, 2013

      45 boo

  19. Monstarebel July 27, 2013

    Congratulations to the 4 black females who made the list! I bought 3 of those 4 albums they were great

    • BeyWhoUWanna July 27, 2013

      Thank you sister. Nicki, Rihanna and Bey are really doing the damn thing even though I don’t really like Rihanna or Nicki.

      • Monstarebel July 27, 2013

        I agree i just give the credit when its due ya know?

  20. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    Waiiinnnmmmmiiinnnuuutttt, are you telling me after performing on every stage available, endless promo, 3857486825826 singles and videos, faking a pregnancy, and the fake friendship with the Obamas, 4gotten barely scratched the charts???

    Waaiiiinnnmmmiinnnuuuttt, after calling herself “KING B” King B couldn’t even sell more than Pink Friday??

    Are you telling me, even after 4gotten is on its THIRD re-release, it couldn’t even sell more than LOUD which was out for only a year when it (4gotten) was out for 2+ years??

    • Beyhive July 28, 2013

      Probably shouldn’t call 4 4gotten considering its been nominated for more awards, than pink Friday, talk that talk, and unapologetic.

  21. jAMILAA July 27, 2013

    lets calm the f*** down ! can we…loud sold 6m world wide! pink friday aint close to that..unapologetic is at 1.1m wea is PFRR at 845k! nicki aint better than riri! riri done sold nicki’s dermograhic with loud alone! so lets not even go there! how dare u compare QUEEN BEYONCE TO ICKI GARBADGE? haha! i laffff in swahili!

    • DeezNuts July 27, 2013

      UH OH. PFRR is at 845k in the US alone sis!

      1.4 Mil WW. Get them facts straight! 🙂

      • Trev July 27, 2013

        PF:RR is 856k in the US….and it’s almost 1.7 million WW actually

  22. NaviKissKiss July 27, 2013

    No wonder Mariah is so insecure.

  23. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    So let’s see, even after attempting to STEAL dance moves from starving South Africans, STEALING a Billboard performance, BUYING a Billboard award, releasing 734682758275 singles and videos, re-releasing the album at least 2 times, still couldn’t top that list.

    So why does she call herself “KING B”??? I really want to know. Clearly she is the one who should be doing the “bowing down”, this would be so funny if it wasn’t so sad.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

      LMAO why’s she supposted to top that list?

      This list is for sales in the new decade, Beyonce has been out since 1997 already sold 30.5 million+ albums in the states.

  24. Monstarebel July 27, 2013

    I remember buying Pink Friday & Loud around the same time playing those albums back to back those two albums are their best work IMO.

  25. Trev July 27, 2013

    I would also like to add Nicki is on like 6 or 7 of these albums…..slay

  26. LTM July 27, 2013

    Yes @ Teenage Dream being in the top 10! Keep in mind that its still selling and even re-entered the top 100 on the Billboard charts. Also shocked at how much Loud has sold. Last time I checked it was at 1.3 million but 1.7 is even better. @Sam Seeing the difference between Loud’s sales and Pink Fridays makes your weak shade at Rihanna on Nicki posts seem even weaker and more pathetic.

  27. DeezNuts July 27, 2013


    Keeping the haters Pressed, Stressed, Distressed, Depressed, Repressed, Impressed, Oppressed, and Supressed B******!!

    F*** the haters! Bye!
    🙁 🙂 😀 😆

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

      There’s nothing to be pressed at, and Onika Garbaj will forever be a flop.

  28. JT>>>>>JC>>>>JB July 27, 2013

    Good for everyone. If your fave isn’t on the list you should slap yourself.

  29. Tremangel July 27, 2013

    I want Trey to be there so bad.

  30. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    So after the Hive go around, calling other artists “lessors” and inflating those figures with DC sales, they are surprising mute at the performance, or lack of, of 4gotten.

    So, 4gotten being on it’s 3rd re-release and after 2962857295 singles and videos, could not outsell Ke$ha – Animal. King B??? King of what??? King of burglary maybe.

    So even after performing on Oprah’s final show, Buying a Billboard award, faking a pregnancy, she couldn’t sell more copies than Ke$ha, LOL.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

      LOL yes but “4” still pissed all over “Animal” worldwide so…..

  31. Monstarebel July 27, 2013

    Favorite Tracks From Pink Friday

    1.) Blazin
    2.) Moment For Life
    3.) Romans Revenge
    4.) Save Me
    5.) Did it On Em

  32. SummertimeSadness July 27, 2013

    Where was Ciara?

    • KuntQueenNubia July 27, 2013

      Trying to stop Lana from doing more botox.

    • LTM July 27, 2013

      Where is Lana?

  33. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    And I cannot at T***** Caca LOL. I thought she was the biggest star in the world according to the Little Monsters, LOL. Why is Taylor Swift selling more copies than the quote, “biggest pop star in the world” unquote according to the Little Monsters.

    From what I can see, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Adele selling more than the “slayer” according to the Monsters. The one who ends careers. Why isn’t she topping the list? Monsters better explain.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

      Because she’s too global to be on the list with Faylor and Tom&Perry. She doesn’t cling to the states and Canada for album sales, she’s a global force, she sells massively in countries where these 5YO highschool acts aren’t even known.

  34. Hk July 27, 2013

    When it comes to hip hop New York is VERY important as its not only the capital and therefore, where the most important critics are but also coz it’s her home town! Loooool, it’s very rare that they don’t respect their own acts.
    I never said that she’s not a smart a smart business woman, I was referring to the fact that people wanna compare her to other female rappers, when her music is BARELY hip hop.

    People need to remember that despite all those numbers she sells she’s never gonna be taken seriously as a rapper coz she’s not that, she’s just a pop artist who happens to rap. Therefore, she’s NEVER gonna be in the same league as Misst, Lauryn, Eve or Kim.

    Congratulations to her tho!

    • ARTPOPPINIT July 27, 2013

      You are misinformed.
      New York is her biggest market. You’d know that if you did your research.

  35. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    So according to the Monsters, Katy Perry is a lessor and yet I can see her dragging Caca by her wheelchair on that list. I thought Caca was the biggest pop star in the world according to the Monsters. The one coming to slay, why isn’t she topping the list? Why hasn’t she sold more than Teenage Dream?

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

      ” I thought Caca was the biggest pop star in the world according to the Monsters.”

      And they didn’t lie!

      Tell me when Tom&Perry even cracks 10 million worldwide, let alone 25.

      Tell me when Tom&Perry can have her own well-known $100M+ tour, let alone surpass $400M+ after 2 tours.

  36. Slayty Perry (Killer Queen) July 27, 2013

    10. Teenage Dream: 2,736,000 and still selling. Side note, I’m surprised at how well Sade’s album did. She makes truly timeless music.

  37. VisionOfMimi July 27, 2013

    How sad that TF almost outsold TD even though TF came out two years before it.

    • Monstarebel July 27, 2013

      How tf is Mariah no were to be found on the list tho

    • LTM July 27, 2013

      You must be slow. Older albums usually sell more than newer ones. Being released two years before TD is an advantage. And there’s a 600k difference between TF and TD so where this “almost outsold” statement is coming from is beyond me.

      • Perry Power July 27, 2013

        Lol still dragging the delusionals on TGJ I see 😉

      • JOHNVIDAL July 27, 2013

        LOL Are you joking or are you really that ignorant? They are not counting all the sales, only from 2010 and on, so yes being released two years before is a disadvantage in this case.

      • LTM July 27, 2013

        That’s still a 600k difference. Not to mention TF didn’t really start selling until 2009.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 27, 2013

      I know! But Katy Perry, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj fans still have the nerve to shade the bigger stars…

      • Lovebird July 27, 2013

        Lies detected.

  38. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    And let’s not pretend like we don’t have to knock off at least 500K from Born this way because of that Amazon $0.99 deal.

    So wait, without that Amazon Deal, Caca would have actually sold less than Pink Friday. Isn’t t***** Caca the biggest pop star in the world according to the Monsters? She would have fared even worst without that Amazon deal from what I can see.

  39. Monstarebel July 27, 2013

    Im so here for Katy slaying GaGa

  40. Nana Yaw July 27, 2013

    Taylor appeared thrice

  41. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    So I want to know why “the album of the decade” according to T***** Caca didn’t top the list? I really want to know.

    Why isn’t “the album of the decade” selling more than Teenage Dream??

    Why is it “the album of the decade” forced a certain t***** to fake a knee injury??

    • POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 27, 2013

      I’m still 🙄 at the “album of the decade” delusion…

      BUT TD was released before BTW, right ? so it is inevitable it will sell slightly more, 600K ? not that much, taking into account TD was re-released.

      be FAIR when you drag, it will make your drags credible. 😉

      • Lovebird July 27, 2013

        You still have to knock off at least 500K from BTW thanks to that Amazon deal, remember.

  42. ItsKatyYaBish July 27, 2013

  43. POP ROYALTY [RUDE BOY] July 27, 2013

    call me when the WW sales List get Released, because this List focus on US sales and Rihanna’s LOUD outsold this Clown in this Pic.

    Damn Adele, now that is a slayer kind of Wig snatchers. #respect

    and JT made it again i see…. now that how you slay. 😉

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

    I want Britney on album 8 2bh.

    • BeachHouseBritney July 27, 2013

      I mean Nicki.

  45. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    So t***** Caca has FAILED to outsell teenage dream on 2 occasions I see. Failed with The Fame, failed with Born this way, the quote, “album of the decade”, unquote.

    So you hype your album by calling it the album of the decade and barely keep up with your peers even with a $0.99 Amazon deal.

    I thought the “album of the decade” was coming to change POP music forever.

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

      No, neither of them failed to outsell TD worldwide :mrgreen:

    Poor Lambs.

  47. Enni July 27, 2013

    You clearly need to be educated. The sales are clearly of this decade which ranges from 2010 to 2019. Mariah’s last studio album was in 2009. Common sense. And lets wait till any of those flops sell up to 200 + Million albums worldwide. Okay. Bye.

    • JOHNVIDAL July 27, 2013

      I can´t f****** understand why some basic kids who stan for industry jokes are tring to come for Mariah in this post??? LOL This is not about her, nobody mentioned her and she has not released any albums in this decade. Damn the fact that she stays in their minds despite debuting in 1990 says it all 🙂

    About what? Her 18 number ones? Her diamond albums? Her 100 million singles sold? The Emancipation of MiMi selling more than Pink Friday? Her getting paid 18m to appear on American Idol?

    You think Mariah’s gonna be jealous of a rookie’s small achievement of ONLY reaching number 20 on these charts? When she releases a top 5 album during every year of the decade like Mariah did, then we can talk.

    If you don’t think that Mariah’s better than Nicki do the research. Ask fans, record labels, critics and the president if you must. EVERYONE knows Nicki isn’t fit to shine Mariah’s shoes. Loooooool #ROOKIES

    Speaking of “changing pop music forever”, from the “album of the decade” marketing intern, I mean mistress, what exactly did she change about POP music besides giving us something Madonna already gave us??

    So she STEALS Madonna songs and try to dress them up as her own and tries to sell it to us as “the album of the decade”, at all costs might I add, no literally ALL costs, even the $0.99 Amazon deal.

    So the “album of the decade” had a FLOP tour, forcing “mother monster” to fake a knee injury due to the losses live nation incurred, “the album of the decade” had no Grammy and still DID NOT CHANGE POP MUSIC.

    What exactly did “the album of the decade” achieve besides expose T***** Caca for the THIEF she is? I really want to know.

    congrats to adele , eminem, pink, lady Gaga, Sade, Rihanna, Katy perry, Nicki minaj, Kanye west, and lil wayne…

    to be honest I don’t understand how 21 sold so much, when 19 was a much better album than 21….

    I wasn’t a huge fan of nicki when she first came out, now she’s growing on me…I cannot not hate on the chick’s hustle….

    KING B????

    I really would like to know what these two THIEVES have to say for themselves now.

    Of course people want to come for Beyonce but don’t realize that, unless you count JT, there are only two R&B albums that made this list and 4 is one of them. Hate all you want but I don’t see Usher, Trey Songz, Chris Brown, Miguel, Keri Hilson, Ciara, Keyshia Cole, or any other R&B act on this list except Sade.

    I’m proud that Katy Perry is in the top 10. As people have already mention that album is still selling in the top 100 on Billboard almost three years later. Love her or not, you have to admit it’s pretty impressive. TD was a perfect pop album. I’m excited to hear what she has in store for the follow up. I want to see her grow as an artist and songwriter.

    3.8 million sold of “Pink Flopday” worldwide?

    Then why can’t you answer my question : Why does MediaTraffic have it at 2.3 million?

    Is Ms. Roman Siliconloaded too global for MediaTraffic?

    Like… Where did those 1.5 million come from?

    Syria? Zimbabwe?

    The Barbz delusion >>>>>>>



    Anyway, I think it’s wonderful how Beyonce can make lists like this 15 years and 30.5 million albums in the states later!

    Congrats Beyonce, Jay-Z and Rihanna.

      You didn’t even know what following mean until today so you can have a seat.
      Does it even make sense that if the album sold 1.8 million in the US it’s only sold 2.3 million worldwide. That would mean it sold next to nothing outside of America which we all known isn’t true.
      It’s sold 3.8 so just deal with it.

      • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

        How do you even know what I was talking about or meant to say lol?

        And your flop silicon+plastic fav hasn’t sold 3.8 million worldwide unless you’re talking about her total sales. Not when MT fave none of her albums at such a sales mark.

        YOU deal with it!

      • LTM July 27, 2013

        Lets not act like Nicki is some time of world force. The U.K is her biggest market outside of the U.S and PF sold less than 300k there. There is no way in hell she sold more than 1 million outside of the U.S. Barbz need to face the facts, Sam included. Pink Friday has not sold 3.8 million worldwide. Not even 3 million.

  55. Lovebird July 27, 2013

    @adamlambert And word on the street is that @katyperry ‘s new music is stellar. The charts are gonna explode this fall!

    And you better believe it babe.

  56. HausMuthaAdele July 27, 2013

    The Lambs are so disloyal. How can a Gaga album that came out in 2008 outsell a Mariah album that came out in 2009 in 2010. And how can Nicki Minaj of all people be shitting all over Mariah’s new sales. Get it together Lambily, because you’re start to look like losers.

    mariah is not on the list, AND?

    mariah doesnt make the forbes list either, and yet she’s worth 500 million

    when was the last time she had a hit album?. a hit tour?

    that’s right, the bish is making more money just seating on her ass, than your favs with a hit album and tour..

    lets see 500 million, without being on every single magazines tv show, or having endorsements with every companies out there

    yes, mariah is the loser…..poor mimi..

    that’s why I sit back and laugh when ever I see people come for Mariah…

    your fav has to work 24/7 365 days a year, cannot afford to take a real break, has to have endorsements left and right, has to have a hit single, hit tour, hit album

    just to be on mariah’s level….

    so mariah, madonna and celine dion who doesnt make the forbes list every month, are worth more than all your favs who stays making every list in the world…

    yes mariah is the loser…and her stan/fan base are also bunch of losers

    • . : : h 2 o : : . July 27, 2013

      You pretty much just did post the same comment 2-3 times lol …

      I really don’t know who you’re talking about but personally, “my fav” is only 31YO and has made $407 million in the past 7 years alone, and that doesn’t even include any royalties from the $200M+ tour she’s currently doing …

      So I don’t see how it’s that hard to become richer than Mariah ….. at all

  63. LTM July 27, 2013

    Sam still has yet to post credible sources of Pink Friday selling 3.8 million worldwide. I guess its true that if you keep telling yourself lies eventually you will start to believe them. At best PF has sold around 2.7 million worldwide.
