Nicki Minaj has a new milestone to celebrate, as the rapper took to social media on Monday (Oct. 15) to thank fans for their support and share the good news.

Per the 35-year-old rapper, her fourth studio album, Queen, has officially been certified platinum in the U.S., a feat her previous three albums have all reached, as well. The 19-track project, which dropped in August, sold 185,000 equivalent album units and debuted at the No. 2 slot on the Billboard 200 chart, behind Travis Scott's colossal sophomore album, Astroworld. Queen currently sits at No. 13 on the chart.

"#Queen becomes my 4th Platinum album in the US this week," Minaj wrote, confirming the news to her #Barbz fanbase. "Thank you guys for your love & support. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project in any way. To God be the glory."

On top of Queen joining the platinum likes of 2010's Pink Friday, 2012's Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and 2014's The Pinkprint, Minaj also has 99 entries on the Billboard 100 chart, the most of any female artist across genres.

Recently, Minaj collaborator Quavo addressed their rumored relationship on his debut solo album, QUAVO HUNCHO. On it, he alluded to their romantic involvement, a prospect that still remains speculative to date.
