Nicki Minaj’s “Queen” Album Is Officially Certified Platinum
Nicki Minaj reigns supreme as her fourth studio album “Queen” has been officially certified platinum.
The 35-year-old rapper took to her Instagram page to celebrate the new milestone, thanking her fans for their support.
“#Queen becomes my 4th Platinum album in the US this week,” Minaj wrote, confirming the news to her #Barbz fanbase. “Thank you guys for your love & support. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project in any way. To God be the glory.“
The 19-track album, which dropped in August, debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart behind Travis Scott‘s colossal sophomore album, “Astroworld”. It also sold 185,000 equivalent album units in its first week. The project, which features appearances from Eminem, The Weeknd, and Future, is currently No. 13 on the chart.
It has also spawned the platinum-certified “Chun-Li,” gold-selling “Barbie Dreams,” and the 3x platinum bonus track “FEFE” with 6ix9ine.
Queen becomes Nicki’s fourth platinum album following 2010’s Pink Friday, 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and 2014’s The Pinkprint. Additionally, she currently has 99 entries on the Hot 100, the most of any female artist.
