Nicki Minaj’s latest album “The Pinkprint” didn’t see the explosive first week sales numbers she saw with her other previous studio albums, but she can be proud that her latest effort is now officially gold.

Nicki Minaj has scored another gold album.
According to Nielsen Music, Nicki’s latest output, The Pinkprint, has just sold over 500,000 copies in the United States.
Nick’s third studio album sold 22,000 copies during the week ending Feb. 15, pushing The Pinkprint over the gold milestone.
The Pinkprint has now sold 509,000 copies after debuting at #2 on the Billboard Hot 200 charts. Since the album was released in early December, Nick has more than doubled her first-week sales of 244,000 copies.
All three of Nicki’s studio albums have gone gold. The first two even went platinum.
In more news, Nicki confirmed on Instagram hours ago that she will be touring with her rumored boo Meek Mill:
So they are going to tour together? This will not end well.
No it won’t. Hell be dragging her on Twitter and IG when it’s over.
I don’t understand how she goes from not wanting to claim SB to touring and IG stunting with Meek. It’s just so weird to me.
Everybody wants to be Bey & Jay smh.
True and it’s weird to me. The power couple thing comes when both people legitimately have their own success to stand on. Meek is a flop and needs Nick to pop off. She’s already doing this whole thing wrong.
She needs to slow down with Meek. He ain’t all that any damn way.
I need her to go platinum so Iggy can get even saltier. Anyway, touring with Meek could lead to some drama.
I bet they break up after the tour. Meek ain’t sh-t.
And it begins. I knew that loud a-s bastard got with Nicki to reap the benefits. He’s just another SB to be honest. This is the most attention he’s ever gotten.
I haven’t been following Nicki as a fan for long but I feel like the rumors were planted for the tour. I’m going to give her to benefit of doubt and assume that they aren’t really together. Yep, that makes me feel better. Congrats to her on going gold.
you must not see that glow on her face
They don’t need to tour together. I mean they haven’t even been dating that long.
She can do so much better than Meek if her goal is to become 1/2 of a power couple.
