Nicki Minaj is somewhere tallying up another win.
According to the rapper, her latest album, Queen has just been certified platinum in the U.S.
The project was released in August and debuted at no. 2 on the Billboard 200 with 185,000 equivalent album units in its first week. It features the single “Chun-Li,” which is platinum-certified, the gold “Barbie Dreams,” and the 3x platinum bonus track “FEFE” featuring controversial rapper 6ix9ine.
Her debut 2010 album Pink Friday, 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and 2014’s The Pinkprint all went platinum in the U.S.
Minaj has made another milestone as she currently has 99 entries on the Hot 100— the most of any female artist of any genre, in history.
The Queens emcee thanked her fans in a post on Instagram Monday, writing, “#Queen becomes my 4th Platinum album in the US this week. Thank you guys for your love & support. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project in any way.”
