This is weird.
It has been well documented how many units Nicki Minaj has sold. And, that's OK. But, right now, she has moved GOLD units of her second album, Roman Reloaded. And that's OK. But, Birdman recently presented her with a plaque of some sort at a recent concert. The nature of this plaque is not fully known, but it appears to be that of a platinum plaque. Well, we're not sure how they claim such a thing at this juncture. It may be that they are counting sales outside of the United States or something. I don't know. But, it wouldn't seem 100% real…I don't think the RIAA/Soundscan people issue plaques merging all sales together.
