NICKI MINAJ | Releases an electrifying debut album ‘Pink Friday’
Nicki Minaj knows how female rappers electrify fans, after all she used to be a fan herself. “I know I was always excited by whatever female was hot at the time,” Nicki Minaj says.
Today, millions of music fans are now saying the same thing about Nicki Minaj, part comic, part sex symbol and all-the-way lyrical assassin. She has everyone talking about her fiery verse on Kanye West’s “Monster” which also features Jay-Z and her infectious, standout appearances alongside Lil Wayne (“Knockout”), Usher (“Lil Freak”), Trey Songz (“Bottoms Up”), Robin Thicke (“Shakin’ It 4 Daddy,”), Sean Kingston (“Letting Go”), Christina Aguilera (“WooHoo”) and as a member of Young Money among many others, have catapulted the Queens, New York entertainer to the forefront of the music industry.
Her appeal is undeniably intoxicating, which is why her first single “Your Love” from her debut album ‘Pink Friday’ hit number one on the Billboard rap charts, which was last achieved by a female hip-hop artist since 2003. Here in the Philippines, Nicki Minaj’s rising popularity has been evidenced by the upshot of her hit singles’ “Your Love” and “Check It Out” feat Will.i.am as they continue to flourish in our local music charts. This flurry of success has casted Nicki in a unique position with the release of her long-anticipated debut album ‘Pink Friday’.
This album is pretty solid with must-hear songs featuring Kanye West, Eminem, Rihanna, Will.I.Am, Drake and Natasha Bedingfield. “Pink Friday” is a combination of Nicki Minaj’s singing/rap combination and features soft songs that will capture the hearts of her female audience like “Save Me” & “Your Love”, but also includes a few records like “Roman’s Revenge feat. Eminem” and “Did It On Em” for the hip hop enthusiasts.
Another testament to her astounding cache: Nicki Minaj hosted BET's Rip the Runway 2010 and pulled in the highest ratings ever for the show setting the stage for a performance on the 2010 BET Awards where she took home trophies for Best New Artist and Best Female Hip-Hop Artist, and for Best Group as a key member of the super-group Young Money. At the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, she stole the spotlight with a show-stealing performance of her duet “Check It Out” with Will.i.am.
Whether it’s her creative phrasing or her ability to seamlessly switch from rapping to singing or her imaginative, fantasy-inspiring outfits, or her multiple personalities, Nicki Minaj clearly has all eyes on her as she prepares for the dawning of ‘Pink Friday’.
