On Thursday (17), Nicki Minaj decided to vent on Twitter on its sales of the album “the pinkprint”. Already launched a year ago, he did not hit the mark of a million copies sold, which, according to the rapper should be a given relative.
“Only in Spotify, that album sales were 1.4 million worldwide. The fact that our music is given grace makes us lie when we take credit for our actual sales? Sad. Universal is happy, “wrote Nicki Minaj.
Of consolidated sales, the album yielded 683,336 copies in the United States, but Nicki acedita the number to be taken into account is 2.3 million: adding the streams of loose tracks and full album. Making care of all the streams more sales, American rapper would have a total of 3.3 million and she wants her platinum certificates.
“Some artists removed his work from Spotify and other services of that nature, but for us we have not done this, we have to be patient for justice in our industry, and it seems to finally be coming,” Nicki continued. One of the artists who did it was Taylor Swift, who caused the biggest brouhaha at the time.
“The music industry really does not seem built to reward our culture with sales and recognition we deserve, but I’m glad some wonderful people are fighting for us,” added the rapper.
