    The RIAA only certifies USA releases. #2 RIAA has certified her as gold if you go the their database. Sales have just about stopped on her album. No way she reaches platinum, let alone 650k. It’ still a successful release but let’s tell the truth.

  • HipHopOne

    I have soundscan at my desk that tells me she is not platinum. LakeShore is correct, RIAA only certifies US releases.

  • Commenting Carl

    @ LakeShore with sales over 900,000 worldwide as of June 23 and a platinum certification from the RIAA who cares if it’s not all sold in the US… a CD sold is a CD sold no matter where it was bought….the bottom line is that it has been certified as platinum no matter how you slice it it’s just funny how people are always trying to diminish someone else’s accomplishments by saying it’s shipped only… like I said it has sold 900,000 plus as of June 23, which is over a month ago….it’s not far fetched to say that she has sold another 100,000 since then world wide… and that link I posted was from the RIAA by the way…. it lists gold and platinum which is the way that they always post it when it’s platinum.

    Shipped has NEVER been the certification standard for the RIAA. Stop making things up. That placque birdman gave her is NOT from the RIAA. Please stop. “The Certification Process … An artist’s Gold

  • lmao, this girl must of been the worst idea in hip hop, she contributing to its death rite now, soon its going to electro/dubstep on hot 97, meanwhile its been happening on occasion, watch pretty soon youre gonna turn the radio on in your car all your gonna hear is afrojack and deadmau5 and whatnot..

    @CommentingCarl……take a deep breath and calm your groupie ass down, your typin like somebody insulted your mother. At least learn how to stick up for an artist you like without including all that extra emotion. Nobody is a hater because they don’t like an artist that you do, that’s like me calling you a hater of hip-hop in general for defending this pop tart. Not a good look.

  • Scrilla

    She’s everything bad with hip hop. Probably the worst rapper ever

    @Commenting Carl

    I’ve worked in this industry a long time. Shipped does not equal sales and shipped does not equal RIAA certification. That quote I gave you came directly from the RIAA. You are making stuff up. That placque is NOT from the RIAA. Birdman made that up himself. Drake has sold 1.8+. He will be paid for 1.8+. Nicki has sold 590k+ she will be paid for 590k plus, not 1 million. Nice try. It’s okay to be a fan but be honest.

  • Huil Lu Kim

    Well, that’s inconsistent of him.
    He should’ve gave her on the amount unit he really intended to inflate the sales by.

    I was more like expecting a plaque for 5 million SOLD.

  • Commenting Carl


    I provided two links where are yours so you’re saying she wont be paid for the albums she sold outside the US only 590k+ If you work in the industry I would like to know who hired you for real I hope it wasn’t the same person that signed Soulja Boy Kreayshawn and Chief Kief because I need to go put in an App ASAP!

  • HipHopOne

    @Commenting Carl

    I’m talking USA sales only as RIAA only certifies USA sales. UAS Sales are all that counts for RIAA certification. Why not just say everyone is gold right out the box because most major artists ship gold in the USA. Because the RIAA does not count shipped.

  • LakeShore

    RIAA is USA sales only. Not shipped. If so every major artist would be counted as gold as soon as the album goes in stores because they ship gold out the box. And we all know that’s not the case.

  • Commenting Carl


    how do can you work in the industry and be so oblivious?

    I’m gonna say this one final time and i’m done with you

  • AtlRyder

    @ LakeShore, Indeed every big artist would be gold upon first day release if shipped counted. Because they all ship gold.

    Yeah. RIAA certifies only sales, not shipped. There are different types of markets but they all come back to what soundscan says the sales are in the US from what was shipped. That’s why certification takes some time to give and cannot be done in advance no matter how many fake plaques they make up.

  • AtlRyder

    Here’s recent soundscan chart for usa. You will see Nicki Minaj is still under 600k in usa sales which is what the riaa certifies.


  • Commenting Carl

    ^^^ Nigga I clicked that link and had to reformat my computer aint nobody gonna download chart list

  • lord of the underground

    Sales dont mean shit. Congats anyway

  • Jaymalls


    RIAA only accounts for sales in the US, that’s why it’s an acronym for Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). She sold over a million copies worldwide, which has nothing to do with the RIAA nor does that mean she received platinum certification from them.

    Nicki’s album was a successful release for the average artist but not for someone who performed at the Allstar Game, Super Bowl, Grammys, American Music Awards, and more prior to releasing their album.

    Judging by her album credits, interviews, and the success of her last album… Her budget was big and im pretty sure PF:RR barely paid for itself!

    this is directly from their website (RIAA)

    all i am saying is that she has a platinum certification from RIAA shipped or not
    and with the million worldwide sales I’m saying that she’s platinum that way too…. so if she shipped a mil and sold a mill worldwide she still has a million in sales either way so the albums are already accounted for even if it’s shipped to retail by RIAA standards she is platinum hence the plaque

    On June 22, the album was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America, for shipments of one million copies in the US.


  • Commenting Carl

    and adding to that everybody keeps quoting what they believe is the criteria the RIAA uses to determine platinum status if you actually look it up like I did you will see that i’m right

    @commenting Carl… Hahahaha i honestly feel bad for you dude. If your homosexual, I don’t feel as bad, but to be arguing for nicki this hard, you gotta be one queer ass loser. I could give a fuck if she got a “real plaque”. Most likely not, but bottom line is that her music is trash, edible trash that dumb teenage girls buy. Good day sir

  • fuck commenting car and anybody that love em

  • jay


    2 bad more fans have turned their back on her.

    only thing she does is shipping albums, not selling

    Bring back Commenting Carl, we need more passionate posts. You can tell he lives this blogging shit…lol. Fuck a job and shit when you can look up sales stats of a pop star. That dude got E-murked by like 20 people on here. Only reason I peep these wack ass Minaj posts is to see all the divas come out scratching and biting for their queen.

  • @Artise1

    She shipped 1,000,000 copies because of the hype surrounding Nicki, but n*gga didn’t buy it. So it will be in the $3.99 bin in a minute.
