During the weekend, Cardi B picked up a Grammy, becoming the first woman to win best rap album at the famous music awards event, and sparking a lot of argument and comparison between her and Nicki Minaj over who’s the better artiste.
Cardi B may have grabbed the laurels ahead of Nicki but coming right on the back of that, Nicki Minaj has hit a milestone ensuring that she’ll remain the highest selling female rapper for some time to come: a record 15,000,000 albums sold globally.
That’s right, 15 million albums sold to fans across the world. That’s the highest sold by a female rapper.
Not a mean feat. And the timing is not bad either.
