Nicki Minaj quickly became a global music phenomenon when she released her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ in November 2010. It became an instant hit, peaking at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and being certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) only a month after its release. She became the first female solo artist to have seven singles on the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time. Her second single, “Your Love” reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart, making Minaj the first female artist to top the chart unaccompanied since 2002. Her second studio album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded was released in April this year.
