Nicki Minaj is one major female rap artist known world wide for her rap skills and prowess.
After signing with Young Money Entertainment in 2009, Minaj released her first studio album, Pink Friday (2010), which peaked at number one on the US Billboard 200 and was ultimately certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Her second album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, was released in 2012 and debuted at number one in several countries. Minaj made her film debut in the 2012 animated film Ice Age: Continental Drift. In 2013, she was a judge on the twelfth season of American Idol.
Minaj’s third studio album, The Pinkprint, was released in 2014. She subsequently played supporting roles in the films The Other Woman (2014) and Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016). Her fourth studio album, Queen, was released in 2018.
Minaj has been called one of the most influential female rap artists of all time. Throughout her career, she has received numerous accolades, including six American Music Awards, 11 BET Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, two Billboard Women in Music Awards, and 10 Grammy Award nominations. Minaj has sold 20 million singles as a lead artist, 60 million singles as a featured artist, and over five million albums worldwide, making her one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
Although she is still being pitched with Cardi B on who is the best female rapper, somehow she raised her rankings during a live interview where she freestyled on common words without using any x rated word.
As of January 2020, Minaj was yet to break her silence online after announcing a hiatus from social media on November 9, 2019. The rapper did not make any recorded public appearances aside from her attendance at the Billboard Women in Music event on December 12, at which she was awarded the Game Changer Award after “becoming the first woman to notch 100 appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 chart”.
She returned to both Twitter and Instagram on January 30, 2020, to announce her appearance as a guest judge on the premiere episode of the twelfth season on the American reality competition series Rupaul’s Drag Race. The next day, her collaboration with American singer Meghan Trainor entitled “Nice to Meet Ya” was released accompanied by a music video.
Soon after posting a snippet of a new, untitled track, Minaj announced that she would be officially returning to music with her first solo song of 2020, titled “Yikes” which was released on February 7, 2020.
According to Forbes Nicki Minaj is the first female Artist to accumulate 100 Million dollars. She’s currently married to Kenneth Petty.
She recently released a song with Akon and the song is already banging everywhere. Seems the Queen of rap doesn’t want to slow down.
More wins Nicki!
