Nicki Minaj Is on Track to Become First Female Rapper to Sell 100 Million Units
Nicki Minaj could be on the verge of hitting another a major milestone in her illustrious rap career.
According to Chart Data, the “Fefe” rapper has sold 99 million units across albums, singles and features certified by the Recording Industry Association of America. The rap veteran is one million shy of becoming the first female rapper to have 100 million units sold.
This feat would be just the latest sign of her historical mainstream dominance. Back in November, Nicki officially became the first female artist with 100 entries in the Billboard Hot 100 Songs chart. Tyga's single "Dip," which includes a cameo from the Queen Barbz, debuted at No. 83 on the chart, which signified her 100th entry into the chart.
This report comes just two days into the new year and a few months after the release of her latest album, Queen, which was one of the best hip-hop projects of 2018. To cap of her very active 2018, Nicki landed a voiceover role in the Angry Birds 2 film project.
Outside of the entertainment business, Nicki's love life is heating up as well.
The "Good Form" rapper's boyfriend, Kenneth "Zoo" Petty, recently got the rapper's name tattooed on his neck. "Did your tatt hurt?" Nicki asked her boo. "No, not at all," Petty responded.
Over the New Years Eve holiday, Nicki shared a video of herself enjoying an intimate evening in a hotel jacuzzi with her boyfriend. Petty is shown kissing Nicki's feet repeatedly in a heavy PDA session.
