Nicki Minaj is now the third female rapper in history to earn a diamond plaque, as the RIAA confirmed that “Super Bass” has sold over 10 million units.
The certification arrives a decade after it was released, with the rapper taking to Instagram to share a message of gratitude. “#SuperBassDiamond Thank you for over a decade of support. #Barbz (special thx to Ester Dean, Kane, Juice, Taylor Swift, Sofia Grace & Rosie, Ellen, Young Money/Cash Money & Republic,” she wrote as the post showed off her plaque. “This one was released b4 the streaming era, so millions of fans actually purchased the song. I’m so grateful for you guys. Sending love & blessings your way.”
Minaj joins Cardi B and Ms. Lauryn Hill as the three female rappers to ever get a diamond certification; Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” hit the 10 million mark in March 2021 while Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill achieved the feat in February.
