Nicki Minaj’s fourth studio collection has come to platinum status.
The rollout for Queen was perfect, with a few singles helping Minaj turn up the heat. “Barbie Tingz,” “Chun-Li,” “Rich Sex” including Lil Wayne, and “FEFE” with Tekashi 6ix9ine.
At that point, after Travis Scott’s Astroworld beat Queen for the best recognized on Billboard’s 200 charts, things hit the fan. Minaj took shots at Scott’s retail techniques, pointed the finger at Kylie Jenner and Stormi for helping boost Astroworld sales, and pulled the sexism card.
It appeared that she felt robbed out of earning the number one album. The drama was unbefitting of a Queen, but now her hip-hop highness can feel vindicated as Queen has hit the coveted platinum mark.
