Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” Goes Platinum

It was only a matter of time before Nicki Minaj’s new single “Anaconda” sold one million copies in the U.S. and today the YMCMB diva announced her latest achievement via Twitter while also revealing that the Sir Mix-A-Lot-sampling song is now available on UK iTunes.

“Anaconda,” which is currently No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, was produced by Polow Da Don and Da Internz and will appear on Nicki’s forthcoming album The Pinkprint, expected to hit store shelves November 24th.

In August, the provocative music video set a 24-hour VEVO record with 19.6 million views and has since been watched a total of 235 million times.

Congratulations Nicki!
