‘The Pinkprint’: Nicki Minaj Album Glides Towards 1 Million Sold Milestone

Published: Monday 12th Oct 2015 by David

Congratulations are soon to be in order for the rapper Nicki Minaj.

Hit the link below for a ‘Pinkprint‘ sales update below…

Confusion with Jay Z‘s ‘TIDAL‘ streaming service may have rained on ‘Feeling Myself‘s steaming parade but it’s done little to stop its supporting album from cruising towards the 1 million units sold worldwide mark.

The project has now shifted 922,000 units globally without a hit single outside of her domestic market.

How it’s sold this many units without aStarships’-sized single? Its parent tour of the same name which delivered sold out arena dates in Europe and North America, picking up over $16,526,419 before it touches down in Brooklyn, New York on the 20th of this month.

  3. Queen Molly October 12, 2015

      *sips tea.

      • Ciah’s Turtle October 12, 2015

        will any other rap b**** ?

    • King Mark111 /.\ October 12, 2015

      She won’t, RIAA only count US sales, less than 700K. So nope, no plat cert. Sorry, not sorry.

    • truth(Janet is QWEEN, MaDINOSAUR is a flop! Deal!) October 12, 2015

      @hail GOOOWRL just stfu!

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES October 13, 2015

      Platinum status isn’t given by selling 5,000 copies in all the countries in the world. It’s given by selling 1,000,000 in the United States. Oinknika couldn’t achieve that.

  5. Lil Kim thee ONLY QB October 12, 2015

    I hate how she can only sell out arenas in Europe. We need to do better in America and support our artists before they start releasing music to Europe first and us second…..So Lil Kim confirmed that she only has one new single and that’s with Diddy but she is still signing to his label. No word yet on the album release date.

    • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig October 12, 2015

      Do you fvck with Nicki? If so , it’s nice to see a Beehive fan support another female rapper… There’s no reason why both of these ladies can’t co-exist

      • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB October 12, 2015

        Of course I love female rap. I’m real af and I will let these hoës know who i dislike.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig October 12, 2015

        Ooooh yas honeyyyy, ooop you better let em know ????

    • Ciah’s Turtle October 12, 2015

      See.. I knew I liked you. Real af

    • nicko October 13, 2015

      But she sold out arenas in the US too :-/. N the US leg was actually more successful than the European leg.

  6. DIABETES UNBOTHERED October 12, 2015

    • Lil Kim thee ONLY QB October 12, 2015

      Little boy you’re grown af but behind this keyboard trolling. Get you a job that pays more than minimum wage. Oh and get tested for hîv.

      • Secret stan October 12, 2015

    • Pink to pink barb to barb October 12, 2015


  8. shakira stan October 12, 2015

    Didn’t Taylor sell that in 2 days?

    • RDK October 12, 2015

      so….they both are rich as f-ck.it’s nice to do that in two days yes, but doing it over time is still as good.

    • Ciah’s Turtle October 12, 2015

      Isn’t taylor another genre ?

  9. shakira stan October 12, 2015

    Does Nicki minaj have a one single?
    Ok bye.

    • Drive by Comments October 12, 2015

      For someone who stans for shakira you sure do throw a lot of shade.

      • shakira stan October 13, 2015

        Don’t compare shaki to this flop …she has a one single and she ain’t even American . YB

    • Stay pressed October 12, 2015

      There’s no way what you wrote is English

  10. Huh you didn’t see this coming did you? October 12, 2015

    Haters can now kiss her ass

    • Diego October 12, 2015

      Missy did 4 million on one album she will never see this overrated Minaj stalled lol

      • RDK October 12, 2015

        regardless Nicki sold millions in singles and ft,she isn’t the highest selling female rappers for selling albums only.
        you need to understand that.

  11. Drive by Comments October 12, 2015

    Lol @ glides

  12. Lily Kim is a joke October 12, 2015

    Not lil Kim fans thumping down positive comments about the queen of rap stay mad

  13. Jay October 12, 2015

    Lol at this pathetic post. As if this didn’t come out almost a year ago.

    • LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES October 13, 2015

      And she still hasn’t gone platinum in sales in any market. She’s stuck at 600k in the US.

  14. By the time I’m donely done with you October 12, 2015

    You’re pathetic and useless put that knife and that pot and that chicken and that Cow down and go to the gym and leave the farm at once

  15. Are you asking for it? October 12, 2015

    Nop but I know a album that stalled at 800K divide by 3 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Are you asking for it? October 12, 2015


  16. Hum October 12, 2015

    Sorry just saw who’s side you at 🙂 🙂 🙂 :*

  17. WWEStarShip October 12, 2015

    Wasn’t Anaconda on that album, which was a huge hit worldwide not just in the United States!?! Her marketing strategy was way off with this album but even her 2nd album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded has yet to sell 1 million copies in the US so what are we really expecting here? I’m a fan don’t get me wrong but don’t try to make it seem like it’s a huge accomplishment when those are subpar numbers for an artist as big as Nicki Minaj!

  18. chanel October 12, 2015

    I love nickiminaj and lil Kim it’s plenty room for all and nickiminaj numbers are still good I don’t see why ppl rate their artists by what they sell and also music is harder to sell so what if It takes a while to get platimunm it’s what the ppl buy anyway support dose go along way

  19. Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 12, 2015

    Good for her! However, I find it very difficult to believe that “Anaconda” or “Pills n’ Potions” weren’t global hits of a certain extent. Heck, even “The Night is Still Young” had massive global pop appeal. Anyway, this album deserves to be at 4.5+ million copies sold by now, and I’m just glad that is getting closer to earning a platinum certification on behalf of RIAA. Now, all I need her to do is promote “T.D.G.” to get her global smash and first #1 on the Hot 100. I still can’t believe that her first album is 3x platinum. That speaks power in her name.

    • Christian October 12, 2015

      But it’s not getting any closer. It stalled at around 650k in the US. She’s not seeing platinum on this album for maybe another 5 or 6 years. Her second album has yet to sale 1 million copies in the US

      • Ciah’s Turtle October 12, 2015

        You say “US” that as if that makes a difference. 1 mil albums sold is 1 mil albums sold. pipe down ma

      • Christian October 12, 2015

        It still won’t get her a platinum plaque from the Riaa. Be mad at Nicki not me ????

      • Christian October 12, 2015

        AND now that you mention it, it does make a difference. Most of those 922 copies were sold in the US since it stalled at 650k ????????

      • Christian October 12, 2015

        *922k world wide

      • Chile, leave my weave at the door and don’t steal it like those broke ass barb stans October 13, 2015

        Oh, trust me! Onika is a Jamaica-Queens girl, and if she knows how to do anything it’s to hustle and make a way. She’ll go plain with this album. She just needs to stop being stingy with the promo.

      • Nicki Fan November 26, 2015

        how many albums did you sell? how many plaques u got? how much money u got? U worthless piece of shyt love putting down ppl when u don’t got a pot to p*** in and throw it out the window. Continue making you minimum wage at the fast food restaurant u work at and continue living with ur parents in a 2 bedroom apartment with you four siblings.

  20. Queen Molly October 12, 2015

    Nicki has had so many singles the fact that this hasn’t sold 1 million worldwide is embarrassing af

    • October 12, 2015

      you know what is embarrassing and it as nothing do do with nicki,but you and your fav so don’t even start.

    • #TeamKen October 12, 2015

      I find it amazing how you as a Ciara Stan can sit on here and come for anybody’s sales when she hasn’t seen platinum or gold in almost a decade. Sit down and know your place t******.

  21. BeyRihLiyah October 12, 2015

    Hahaha almost a year later and she still havent sold 1 mill worldwide lmaoo

  22. Keri Qween October 12, 2015

    Glad she flopped. maybe the plastic b**** will humble herself.

    • #TeamKen October 12, 2015

      When will Keri?

    • Ciah’s Turtle October 12, 2015

      I love Keri, but are any of her albums Platinum ? or Gold for that matter. Careful who you stan for

    • BEY>RIH October 12, 2015

      Keri tho..?

  23. Gee October 12, 2015

    With all the promoting and single releases I would have expected this feat a long time ago but better late than never.

  24. YaMotha October 12, 2015

    Listen.. say what you want about the sales of this album. Fact of the matter is that..no other female rapper can sell what Nicki is selling at this current point in time. Whether its a flop in your eyes or not.

  25. BEY>RIH October 12, 2015

    Although my fave sold these numbers in 10 days in the U.S., congratz hun. I love me some Onika and there is no other female rapper selling like this.

  26. Chillitsjustpizza October 12, 2015

    Shout out to all the new and old female rappers coming out again. Nicki being out by her was a blessing and a curse. She aint doing the same numbers. Kiii oh lil kim will be performing her new single tomorrow on the hip hop awards…..

  27. Barb-wire October 13, 2015

    Yasssss @DavidDaBarb… You better stan for Want Some More!!! TPP deserves to sell moore than this tbh, it was such a solid album but whateves QUEEN NICKI ain’t bothered.. she’s still getting paid for the gawds!!!

  28. LIL’ KIM BIRTHED YO FAVES October 13, 2015

    Lil’ Kim is coming back to snatch wigs and show all you h**** who the Queen of Rap is!

    • Barb-wire October 13, 2015

      Bye girl, not you +1 yourself.

  29. nicko October 13, 2015

    SLAYNika ! When will igloo n lil k** ? Btw did kims last album even go gold in the US? LMAOO Nicki is such a BOSS.

  30. nicko October 13, 2015

    Kim fans thinking kim xiong xiang is making a comeback is HILARIOUS to me. Nicki is unbothered, sittin pretty on forbes cash kings list, itunes n billboard (not twitmusic or paypal) ????

  31. THE WORLD IS WAITING FOR ANTI!! October 13, 2015

    Keep Calm!!!! Anti is coming to slay your faves!!

  32. Oscar October 13, 2015

    let’s put this in perspective. Madonna has sold like 800k WW with only ONE badly charting single that lasted one week… Nicki sold 900k with all of her singles charting and numerous top 40s. TPP was released like 4 months prior to rebel heart also

    • Oscar October 13, 2015

      if you can’t outsell am legend that’s wayyyy out of their prime on your third album… that’s a problem

      • Oscar October 13, 2015

        *outsell by much

  33. TerryB October 13, 2015

    Let this had been Rihanna or Beyonce, y’all would drag them. And that’s for the ppl who claim that she’s on their level. That’s clearly a lie ????

  34. The Truth Emeritus October 13, 2015

    Almost an entire year later???!! The f***?????????????? Thats not even actual sells. The struggle is real!
