Nicki Minaj is feeling herself and she’s proud of it. Taking to Instagram on Saturday (June 24), the Young Money queen posted a series of recent accomplishments, explaining why she feels the need to broadcast her wins.
“According to Universal Records, this year alone, my album catalogue sold 325K worldwide and #ThePinkprint is now at 4 Million worldwide,” she wrote. “Since January, I’ve received 11 billboard entries, and yesterday with that ASCAP award, I became the most awarded female rapper in history‼️To top it all off, this year I received the title for most Hot 100 entries by any woman in the HISTORY of MUSIC. A title previously held by Aretha Franklin for 40 years.👑
“They don’t want you to post your achievements & accomplishments. It makes them uncomfortable,” she added. “But you must! B/c everyday, ppl broadcast your failures. They shout them to the mountain tops. So never EVER stop posting your accomplishments. I love my fans so much.”
The photo that she captioned was taken at a recent “secret shoot,” which she provided behind-the-scenes videos and photos for in recent days.
There are likely more accolades in the future. Nicki is currently readying her fourth studio album, the follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint.
