Nicki Minaj is just two songs away from shattering a record in the music industry with her latest achievement. The rapper now boasts two diamond certifications, thanks to her hit song ‘Bang Bang.’

Nicki Minaj’s journey to diamond status has been a long one, with her first diamond certification coming from her 2011 hit ‘Super Bass,’ which went diamond on November 9, 2021. She became the second female rapper to achieve this milestone, following Cardi B, who earned her first diamond certification with ‘Bodak Yellow’ in March 2021.

The latest addition to her diamond repertoire is ‘Bang Bang,’ a 2014 pop/rap collaboration with Jessie J and Ariana Grande. The song, which you couldn’t escape from no matter where you were—be it sporting events, clubs, restaurants, stores, or on the radio—has now received the diamond certification. This accolade signifies that the track has moved an astounding 10 million units, a testament to its widespread popularity and relentless marketing.

Even though ‘Bang Bang’ is technically a Jessie J song, Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande equally share in this extraordinary achievement. The track’s massive success helped propel all three artists to new heights in their careers. While Cardi B still holds the lead with three diamond-certified songs—’Bodak Yellow,’ ‘Girls Like You’ with Maroon 5, and ‘I Like It’ featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin—Nicki is just one hit away from tying that record.

This new milestone has fans buzzing about Nicki Minaj’s place in the pantheon of female rappers. Does this solidify her status as the greatest female rapper of all time? Is ‘Bang Bang’ a better diamond track compared to ‘Super Bass’? These questions are igniting passionate discussions among fans and critics alike.

Nicki Minaj’s latest achievement is a momentous occasion for her, Jessie J, and Ariana Grande. It stands as a testament to their talent and the impact they’ve had on the music industry.

As Nicki Minaj edges closer to breaking yet another record, her fans and the music community eagerly await her next move. Will she catch up with Cardi B and make history once again? Only time will tell. Stay tuned for more updates on Nicki Minaj and everything happening in the music world.
