Nicki Minaj has plenty to celebrate today.

The rapper has just scored her first million-selling single in the UK, with her 2012 hit 'Starships' finally passing the huge sales milestone.

It becomes the 166th single to sell over a million copies in the UK since records began.

The track - produced by Lady Gaga collaborator RedOne - was the lead single for Minaj's second studio album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.


Although 'Starships' is a huge seller here in the UK, it actually narrowly missed out on the top spot, ultimately settling for No.2 on the Official Chart.

It was held off by Gotye's one-hit wonder 'Somebody That I Used To Know', which has also surpassed the million sales mark.

However, Nicki Minaj isn't the only one celebrating today, because Gerry and the Pacemakers' 'You'll Never Walk Alone' has also become a million-seller over 52 years after its original release.

It's famously known as the anthem for Liverpool football club, after fans adopted the sing-along at matches.
