Gold & Platinum Selling Hip-Hop Singles Of 2012

Although no rap/hip-hop album went platinum (sold over a million copies) in 2012, a lot of hip-hop singles got platinum certifications from RIAA. I guess artists are paying more attention to making money off singles, than they are at dropping well-rounded rap albums. Anyway, below are the singles from rappers that either got Gold Plaques, or a Platinum Plaques.

Gold Plaques

  • Nicki Minaj feat. 2 Chainz- Beez In The Trap

  • Tyga- Make It Nasty

  • Ca$h Out- Ca$hin Out

  • Mac Miller- Knock Knock

  • Machine Gun Kelly- Wild Boy

  • 2 Chainz feat. Drake- No Lie

  • French Montana feat. Rick Ros, Drake, & Lil Wayne- Pop That

Platinum Plaques

  • Flo Rida- Wild Ones (3 million copies sold)

  • Maroon 5 feat. Wiz Khalifa- Payphone (3 million copies sold)

  • Nicki Minaj- Starships (3 million copies sold)

  • Flo Rida- Whistle (2 million copies sold)

  • PSY- Gangnam Style (2 million copies sold)

  • Tyga- Rack City (2 million copies sold)

  • Tyga feat. Lil Wayne- Faded (a million copies sold)

  • B.O.B- So Good (a million copies sold)

  • Kanye West, Big Sean, 2 Chainz & Pusha T- Mercy (a million copies sold)

  • Justin Bieber feat. Big Sean- As Long As You Love Me (a million copies sold)
