Nicki Minaj nets more platinum plaques with Jason Derulo, Ariana Grande

Two all-star assists, with guest appearances alongside a pair of pop stars.

Nicki Minaj is already the most successful female artist in Billboard history, and this week she added two more accomplishments to the trophy room: multi-platinum certifications for her appearances on Ariana Grande's "Side to Side" and Jason Derulo's "Swalla."

"Swalla" is currently certified 5x platinum, while "Side To Side" is certified 3x platinum.

She took to Instagram to share some memories from the two records.

"Both of these songs were sent to me during my off season when I was turning everything down & being painfully reclusive," she wrote. "I remember rolling out of bed for both of these even tho I rlly [sic] just wanted to watch reruns of 'Snapped' & 'Forensic Files.'"

In another post, she revealed that she had high expectations for "Swalla" early.

"I told Jason this song would sell 4 million copies while we were shooting the video," she wrote. "I was wrong. 5 M's worldwide & counting."
