According to the Recording Industry Association Of America (RIAA) and Chart News, Nicki Minaj‘s latest studio album, The Pinkprint, has reached double Platinum status.
This means that the project has reached over 2 million sales since it was first released on December 15th back in 2014.
If you didn’t already know, the RIAA have adjusted its rules to let streaming count towards album certifications, which is why we didn’t hear about The Pinkprint going Platinum after going Gold last year.
Congratulations to the Young Money Barbie on this achievement!

Timbaland recently made an appearance on Hot 97′s “Ebro In The Morning” radio show to speak to Ebro and Peter Rosenberg for an interview that you can check out after the jump below.
During their conversation, Tim discussed Drake potentially having one of the biggest runs of hits in hip-hop history by saying everybody has a diving period, but it’s how you come out of it that keeps you relevant and he believes Drizzy did that with who he has collaborated with.
The record producer, music artist, and songwriter also revealed that he knew Drizzy Drake would be huge in the music industry after their “Say Something” collaboration back in 2009, as well as that they spoke last week about possibly doing a new collabo!
