Nicki Minaj has a receipt for those of you questioning whether her The Pinkprint album sold over three million copies worldwide or not. Earlier this week, Minaj posted this image congratulating herself for selling 3.3 million copies of the record, a number some believe she inflated.

#1YearOfThePinkprint this album is now TRIPLE platinum worldwide (3.3 Million), even though we have to wait for a March court date to be credited for tracks & streams. Some artists removed their work off Spotify and other services of that nature, but for the ones who did not, we have to be patient for justice in our industry & it finally looks like it’s coming. This judgement, when passed, will work retroactively so that we can receive our plaques, etc for all of the free music given away on these services. On Spotify alone, the sales of this album is 1.4 Million worldwide. The music business doesn’t really seem designed to reward our culture with the sales & accolades we deserve, as we don’t normally cater to middle America, but I’m so happy that some amazing ppl have been fighting for us. To my fans, thank you for your support. Nothing made me happier than seeing your faces this year on #ThePinkprintTOUR ~ Thank you for this Grammy nominated album. 😘😘😘😘😘😘😘 To all the artists out there working hard on your music and feeling discouraged, I feel your pain & completely understand your frustration. Don’t let anything stop the love you have for your passion. 💕💕💕💕💕 #ThePinkprint

After folks began questioning if those numbers were legit, Minaj took to Twitter to share evidence from her distributor, Universal.

The rapper maintains that the 3.3 million in sales are just a fraction of what the album should be credited with if the industry were to include streams. Minaj claims that her album was streamed nearly half a billion times in the months since its release, and number that checks out if you look at numbers provided by Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music.

    That proves nothing. Anybody can make that from a computer.

      The perceived scarcity of an asset can also result in a bull market as can overall economic optimism, as with the property boom in the US several years ago which brought about a lot of consumer spending and general economic optimism. This boosted almost every market; stocks, commodities and bond markets and the general economic optimism during that period promoted bull markets.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

on

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

Storm Reid – Getty Images

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

LeToya Luckett – Getty Images

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
