Nicki Minaj Breaks Billboard Female Rap Album Record
Nicki Minaj has broken yet another record. Fourteen weeks after the release of her debut album ‘Pink Friday,’ the Harajuku Barbie has earned herself an additional milestone for female rappers, with her first solo album breaking the record for most consecutive weeks spent in the Top 10 by a female rap album on the Billboard 200 chart.
“Now 14 weeks ; PINK FRIDAY BREAKS the RECORD for MOST CONSECUTIVE weeks in the TOP 10 by a female rap album on Billboard’s 200,” Minaj tweeted of her platinum debut. “Thank you for your continued support.”
The Young Money rapstress has been on a hot streak over the past year, becoming the first female rapper in almost a decade to nab the top spot on the Billboard Rap Songs chart in July with ‘Your Love.’ Additionally, she became the first female rapper to have the most entries on the Billboard Hot 100 in October with sales of almost 4.3 million. When her album ‘Pink Friday’ was released in November, she also became the first female rapper since Eve to have the No.1 album in the country.
Nicki is currently promoting the LP, most recently releasing the Drake-assisted video for ‘Moment 4 Life.’ She previously told The BoomBox that she is working on her sophomore album, which will have a “lot of epic craziness going on.” She will also join Lil Wayne on his I Am Still Music tour, beginning March 18 in Buffalo, N.Y.
