Nicki Becomes First Female Rapper To Move Over 5 Million Units Per Album

YES! Nicki just became the first (!) female Rapper to have all her albums sold over 5 million copies worldwide! Read the article hotnewhiphop.com wrote about it:

Nicki Minaj continues to add to her legacy with a new accomplishment.

Nicki Minaj’s worldwide success has many considering her as one of the greatest female talents in rap music’s history. Since her arrival on the scene, her adeptness for bars and melody have impressed her fans as she has steadily built an empire atop a limited class of women in hip-hop. While the scene appears to be expanding, Nicki likely still sits atop the throne without having released an album since 2014. A new feat has cemented Nicki’s legacy even further as she now enjoys an accomplishment that nobody preceding her has experienced.

The Queens rapper has officially sold over 5 million copies of each of her studio albums, making history as the first female rapper to accomplish such an achievement. With a discography including Pink Friday, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded and The Pinkprint, the world has embraced Nicki as a superior talent in hip-hop, allowing her to move at least 5 million units for each project globally. With the release of her next album appearing to come later this year, Nicki has a chance to further make a mark in the industry. Although album sales have become harder to come by as streaming sites have become the norm, the secretive nature of Minaj’s upcoming project makes us wonder what could be up the rapper’s sleeves.

Congratulations Nicki on reaching such an impressive accomplishment. We will continue to look for any official updates about her upcoming musical endeavors

“Side To Side” (with Ariana Grande) Sued For Copyright Violation

According to hotnewhiphop.com Christopher R. O’Connor sued the record label UMG, asking for royalties from “Side to Side” and wants songwriting credit, because he believes the song sounds exactly like his song “J5 (T6)”.

O’Connor believes that a record executive at UMG, the label that’s home to Grande, got wind of his track and decided to repurpose it for another, more famous artist. He has since brought the case to the record label, who instructed him to send in a demo for assessment. However, the company does not believe that any aspect of the arrangement was appropriated for Grande’s advantage.

Listen below, do you think the songs are similiar?

Wizkid Teases Upcoming Collaboration With Nicki Minaj

The Nigerian rapper ‘Wizkid’ teased about a collaboration with Nicki. There is no release date yet. Check out what konbini.com wrote about it:

While most Nigerian artists tend to team up with C-listers (at best) when it comes to international collaborations, Wizkid has been fortunate enough to consistently work with the best of the best — like Drake, Future and Chris Brown, just to name a few.

Now, the afropop superstar has revealed that he has an upcoming collaboration with the undisputed queen of hip-hop, Nicki Minaj.

About eight months ago, Wizkid and Nicki Minaj took to Instagram to share a picture of both of them together. While fans immediately assumed that meant we were getting a collaboration, nothing had been confirmed — until now, that is.

Speaking with The Beat FM’s Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegi about upcoming collabs, Wizkid said:

“I’ve got a couple big ones coming up. I’ve got one with Nicki [Minaj] coming soon. “

Although we are not sure if what we are getting is a Nicki Minaj song with a catchy Wizkid chorus or a Wizkid song with a killer Nicki Minaj verse, we can be sure that what we do get will be a bop either way. Let’s just hope it doesn’t take forever before we get to hear it!

Young Thug Says Next Single Will Feature Nicki Minaj

Thug teased the upcoming collaboration on Instagram Live.

Young Thug is preparing to release new music with Nicki Minaj, according to a statement made on Instagram Live Saturday. “I’ll log back on a little later. When I log on I’ll be previewing my next single featuring Nicki,” he said. As far as we know, the promise was not kept, but the announcement itself is big news for both Thug and Nicki fans.


Last September, Nicki spoke of a collaboration with Young Thug which she said would appear on her fourth studio album. “[I was] so blown away,” she said of working with Thug. “I can’t wait for people to hear that collaboration.” Thug and Nicki have previously collaborated on the “Danny Glover” remix, Juicy J’s “Low,” and Rae Sremmurd’s “Throw Sum Mo.”

It is unclear if the song Nicki referred to back then is the same collaboration Thug is now teasing. From Thug’s description, it sounds like he will be the lead artist on the track with Nicki appearing as a feature. If that’s the case, the song has either been reworked, dropped from Nicki’s album, or is another collaboration entirely. There is also the possibility that this is Nicki’s single which Thug appears on. Either way, the news should excite fans of Nicki, who has been silent both musically and on social media for the majority of 2018 thus far. Thug fans may also be surprised, as the rapper said in February that he would not be releasing any new music this year to honor his deaf brother.

Nicki has not shared any news of upcoming music. Her long-awaited follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint is expected to see release in 2018.
