Nicki Minaj Turns ‘Pink’ on Debut Album
Young Money's femme fatale Nicki Minaj promised that when she reached a million followers on Twitter, she would hop on Ustream and announce her album title. After hitting a milli last week, Nicki honored her promise and hosted a web chat session last night (August 3), during which 13,000 users stopped in to watch. After calling fans that supplied their number via Twitter, she revealed her debut's title, 'Pink Friday,' which was named for its release on November 23 - the same week as Black Friday.
"My album comes out the 23rd, which is the week of Black Friday," she explained. "So anyway, in honor of that great tradition and being that my album comes out that week, the album comes out on Tuesday and the following Friday is Black Friday. And since I feel I have the power to change anything I want, I've decided I will break tradition of Black Friday. We are going to switch it up this year, in honor of the Nicki Minaj album, and call that week Pink Friday and call my album Pink Friday. I love you all very much, and it's Barbie bitch!"
'Pink Friday' has already spawned two singles, 'Massive Attack' featuring Sean Garrett and 'Your Love,' which became the first single by a female solo artist to top the Billboard Rap Songs list since Missy Elliott held the same position in 2002, with 'Work It.'
