Nicki Minaj had a crazy 2018 with all the drama and Cardi B fights etc plus her Queen album. Now it seems like Nicki will be starting off 2019 on a high because according to Chart Data, Nicki Minaj has sold about 99 million units through albums, singles, and features certified by the Recording Industry Association of America. This means that she is only one million in sales away from becoming the first female rapper to reach 100 million in sales. And knowing her, getting a million more shouldn’t be a huge task as her latest album Queen is still bringing in a huge amount of streams every week.
