Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday goes Platinum

January 5, 2011

According to HipHop DX:

In what’s becoming a less and less common sight as each year passes, Nicki Minaj saw herPink Friday LP certified platinum for sales in excess of one million units. The Trinidadian-American emcee’s record moved quickly with the official recognition coming for Minaj’s debut album after only six weeks of release.

The Young Money rapper was one of only three Hip Hop artists to see their work reach that lofty plateau, the other two being Eminem’sRecovery (the year’s biggest seller) and Minaj’s label-mate Drake’s Thank Me Later. These impressive sales also catapult the pink bombshell into rarified air as far as female musical acts are concerned as she now shares 2010 platinum status with superstars such as Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga.

Pink Friday shows no sign of slowing down as it finished the last sales week at #4 on the Billboard charts.

Young Money proves it is perfectly capable of sustaining itself without Wayne at their helm.
