Though sales of her latest LP ‘The Pinkprint’ have stalled around the 700,000 units point mark, Nicki Minaj continues to stand as one of the highest-selling artists to have debuted within the last decade…sans streams.
Indeed, with ticket, single, album and merchandising sales that see her dwarf Pop stars and Hip-Hop veterans alike, the rapper’s gargantuan brand has now become the standard for success for anyone hoping to assert themselves as a market leader in her field.
Alas, one of these artists is the gifted Remy Ma.
For, after releasing a number of cuts which gave many good reason to believe she had a bone to pick with Minaj, industry fanatics set their sights on the release of her new studio album to see just how loyal her fanbase was.
Unfortunately, its worrying low numbers have now given the Nicki fans she offended the confidence to make her the butt of their jokes on social media.
“Nicki don’t want it with Remy Ma”
