Single Sales: Nicki Minaj’s “Truffle Butter” Crosses the 500,000 Mark

Several weeks ago, Nicki Minaj’s album “The Pinkprint” crossed the 500,000 sales mark in the United States.

This past week, the album’s hit single “Truffle Butter (featuring Drake and Lil Wayne)” did the same.

Positioned at #15 on the Billboard Digital Songs chart, the multi-format radio smash moved 62,312 paid downloads during the most recent tracking week. According to Nielsen, that brought the single’s cumulative US sales total to just over 501,000.

In addition to earning #15 spot on the Digital Songs subchart, “Truffle Butter” also ranks at #10 on Radio Songs, #37 on Streaming Songs and #14 on the all-encompassing Hot 100.
