NICKI MINAJ SHATTERS RECORDS WITH ‘PINK FRIDAY 2 SURPASSING 1 BILLION SPOTIFY STREAMS

Nicki Minaj continues her trailblazing career with yet another milestone achieved by her latest album, Pink Friday 2.

Chart Data reports that Minaj’s recent release has set a new record, becoming the fastest album by a female rapper to reach one billion streams on Spotify. Notably, she now holds the distinction of being the first female rapper to have five albums surpass the one billion streams mark on the platform.

The historic journey began with 2010’s Pink Friday, followed by 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, 2014’s The Pinkprint, and 2018’s Queen, all achieving this remarkable feat.

Pink Friday 2 made a significant impact upon its December release, coinciding with Nicki Minaj’s 41st birthday. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, securing 228,000 first-week units. In accomplishing this, Nicki became the first female rapper to achieve three No. 1 albums, breaking a tie with Foxy Brown.

Foxy Brown, who had previously topped the charts twice in the 1990s, extended her congratulations to Minaj on social media, acknowledging the significance of breaking a 26-year record.

Moreover, Pink Friday 2 set another record on the Billboard Hot 100, with 17 out of its 22 songs making their way onto the chart, marking the highest number for any album by a female rapper.

While some, like Foxy Brown, celebrate Nicki Minaj’s accomplishments, others, including Wack 100, have expressed differing opinions. Wack 100, in particular, stirred controversy by downplaying the album’s record-breaking status on Clubhouse, suggesting that Cardi B holds a larger presence in the current music landscape. Nicki Minaj responded to the criticism on X (formerly Twitter) by posing the question to her followers: “Barbz, did we break any records?”
