Nicki Minaj Reaches New Pure Sales Milestone With Over 15,000,000 Albums Sold Worldwide

Published: Monday 11th Feb 2019 by David


Last week Nicki Minaj learned that she had extended her lead as the highest-selling female rapper in chart history when sales of her music crossed the 100 million mark in the United States.

Now, as the European working day begins, the writer has learned that she has sold over 15 million albums worldwide.

Good news below…

Though her work is yet to see her secure a Grammy or Billboard Hot 100 #1, the entertainer’s pure sales (sales generated solely by purchases) made her by the highest-selling female rapper of all time long before 2014…the year in which streaming figures were slipped into the sales mix.

These pure sales account for the lion’s share of the 8,000,000 albums she has sold to American fans since 2010 and, as she now learned, for the 15,000,000 albums (and counting) she’s sold globally.

As for the rapper’s global sales figure (singles and albums)?

North of 150 million.

100 million units rising from the United States and the additional 50 soaring from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

    Cardis fans are just Nicki’s haters. Poor girl will fall hard when all efforts to dethrone Nicki fail. And I’ve noticed it’s mostly the dark skinned blacks or sweaty Latinos and white gays hating on the queen. Deplorables.

    • Monica’s Dove February 11, 2019

      Nobody is worried about Nicki girl. The Barbz are so delusional.

    • China February 11, 2019

      Nicki is more talented without Question. But the Record Buying Public Loves Cardi. Cardi knows she should have HANDED that Grammy over to Offset

      • Blanco February 11, 2019

        The record buying public? Erm, did you read the post. Nobody is buying Cardi records. They’re streaming them.

      • Jewel February 11, 2019

        Hahaha she really broke records alright. She won a grammy without a physcial copy of her album but I guess we all forget to mentioned that.

      • Monica’s Dove February 11, 2019

        Who’s buying Nicki’s? Queen and every single she released from it flopped. Her tour was canceled. She’s crumbling.

    • Fancy BISH February 11, 2019

      Nicki’s music is cold garbage 🗑 I’m tired of acting like her half, thrown together, corny asss bullshiit that flys out of her mouth at an admittedly impressive flow is music! Anaconda is laughable at best! Stupid Hoee is cringeworthy! Starships is embarrassing! She’s talented and lawd knows she’s pretty and charismatic when she wants to be…but she’s just like the new Eminem…nice flow, but damn WHAT are you talking about? 🤣

    • Dc February 11, 2019

      Cardi has a Grammy why we hating ?

    • Paulo February 11, 2019

      damn if dark-skinned folk hate Nicki if mixed folk hate Nicki and if white folk hate Nicki then who buying her records, sis? asking for a friend

      • Fancy BISH February 11, 2019

        lmao, thank you! ✅ 💯 Maggie tried it

      • Maggie February 11, 2019

        Light skin educated blacks and heterosexual whites

      • Fancy BISH February 11, 2019

        @Maggie, I am a light skin educated black (I went ALL the way) and I have NEVER purchased a damn thing Nicki Minaj has ever had for sale or related lmao 🤣 Stop being so ridiculous!

      • Paulo February 11, 2019

        and I am a white latinx q**** whose playlists have always had Nicki so hush with the racist excuses, Barbz

  2. Jus saying February 11, 2019

    Wow too TGJ long enough to put out a Nicki Minaj post. Y’all so obvious.

  3. Gee February 11, 2019

    This blog is apart of the b******* too y’all wanna keep this Nicki vs Cardi nonesene going so that y’all continue to get hits and it’s sad because both ladies should be able to be celebrated for their achievements without pitting them against each other.

    • Kurtz February 11, 2019

      Agree why is it
      Brandy or Monica
      Whitney or Mariah
      Lil Kim or Foxy
      Nicki or Cardi
      Patti or Aretha
      Christina or Britney

      Can’t we love and listen to them all 🤷🏽‍♂️
      I do. Music isn’t a sport it’s to be enjoyed & celebrated!

  4. Chica February 11, 2019

    Nobody is buying Nicki’s records. These numbers are inflated by streaming.

    • Blanco February 11, 2019

      No they’re not. You clearly didn’t read. 80% pure sales.

      • Dabs February 11, 2019

        Stfu h0£! They are inflated! Just because this wack a$$ site says it doesn’t make it legit clown! 🤡

      • Queen Missy 👸🏾 February 11, 2019

        And you clearly have a problem with basic math because 8 mil units from 15 mil isn’t 80%

      • Caleb February 12, 2019

        But that is literally a lie.

  5. Queen Missy 👸🏾 February 11, 2019

    And still Grammy-less

    • Dc February 11, 2019

      Exactly cardi wins a Grammy last night now a nicki sales update who cares lol still no Grammy 😂

      • February 11, 2019

        I’m sure a lot of people would have chooses Nicki” millions over a grammy, how can you say Nicki has no grammy so her sales don’t matter. what a fool you are.

  8. ayyye February 11, 2019

    nice try by her team to detract from her having no grammys or number 1

  9. This site is trash February 11, 2019

    So sad Nicki asked Sam to post this since cardi won. This site is hargabe and payola

  10. Fancy BISH February 11, 2019

    And let’s talk about Nicki’s ear for beats and production *Eats Bran Muffin* *SMACKS* 🤣 Miss Thing has a horrible ear for beats…her flat, juvenile, ringtone, amateur night at the Apollo sounding production on the majority of her songs are just LAZY and an insult hunnie…the Grammy voters actually LISTEN to musicality! Many of her songs are harsh and annoying to the ear! Borderline unlistenable! If her goal was to be the most musically annoying and unlistenable female rapper of all time, then she knocked it out the park chile! Drake slays Nicki and Wayne easily because they both love wack, corny beats (Wayne’s older production with Mannie Fresh is 🔥 tho) …let’s REALLY have a conversation about it *SMACKS* 😂

  11. Miguel Tav February 11, 2019

    If we learned anything last night by the amount of hate that Nicki received on twitter and IG, its apparent that the agenda to damage her reputation was done. People still saying Nicki is bitter and hating, but there is zero evidence of nicki ever being manipulative to any artist, male or female. The BET exec who tweeted that nicki never stopped anyone from being on the red carpet even said that the two people who stated that were not invited that year to be on the red carpet, only attend the show lol. Nicki was literally trending and all the comments were just trashing her because of Cardi winning the best rap album award, and her not winning it, nor having any nomination this year. The crazier thing is that people completely ignored that cardi’s album really beat J cole, pusha, eminem, nicki, wayne, drake, nipsey, and travis when we all know deep down that that is bs. hip hop really became clout culture.

    • Kpmah11 February 11, 2019

      Absolutely true!

  12. DanYiel Iman February 11, 2019

    and at the end of the day, she’s the highest selling no Grammy all BET, and not sure what else she’s won but it’s all due to streaming & Cardi B did half of what Nicki McFraud has done and a GRAMMY AWARD sealed her musically acclaimed roster!! 🥇

  13. Datredd23 February 11, 2019

    No post on Rihanna’s updated sales huh? Anti juts reached 4x platinum in the US alone. She’s also slated to become the first artist that debuted in the 00s to cross 100 million Equivalent albums but no post on that either! But y’all wanna post this week ass accomplishment for Nikki

    • JOHNVIDAL February 11, 2019

      As irrelevant as Nicki´s empty “achievements”. You said it yourself: “equivalent” LMAO

      • Datredd23 February 13, 2019

        What’s your point? Fool

  14. ROCK February 11, 2019

    Just keep inflating the figures until it bursts lol

    • adele4life February 11, 2019

  23. Queen Missy 👸🏾 February 11, 2019

    A TRUE Queen has everything all the other girls have and then some. Some of these girls call themselves Queens of _________ when they are just a Duchess or Princess.

  25. RiRi February 11, 2019

    All the people on here hating on Nicki’s success will be same ones bringing up Cardi’s old accomplishments 10 years from now when she’s no longer on top. Mind you Cardi isn’t the only female rapper to get a grammy or a #1 song. However, when she fall off that’s all y’all gone keep saying but she got #1s and a grammy.

    • Queen Missy 👸🏾 February 11, 2019

      Well last I checked Cardi wasn’t saying beetches is her sons.

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT TROLLmine 💁🏿‍♀️ February 11, 2019

      Well Grammys and number 1’s are accomplishments to bring up so of course they will bring up winning the biggest award and having the top song in the world

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. February 11, 2019

        @Jasmine – Grammy’s aren’t accomplishments anymore dear.
        #Another Bought And Paid For Award

  26. Theman February 11, 2019

    She has not sold a hundred million in the US. Those are features & streams.

  27. Theman February 11, 2019

    With pure sales in the US she’s at around 5 million with four albums. Y’all be reaching lol 😂.

    • Caleb February 12, 2019

      3.7 million to be exact.

  28. Caleb February 12, 2019

    This is such fake news. 3.7 million pure albums Sales is not “the bulk” of 8 million albums sold. It’s less than half.

    • Fancy BISH February 12, 2019

      ✅ ✅ ✅ 💯
