It’s Pink Friday!
In honor of the 10th anniversary of her debut album, Nicki Minaj has released the deluxe edition, titledPink Friday: The Complete Edition.
The surprise release features eight bonus tracks, including the Young Money anthem “Bedrock,” featuring Drake and Lloyd, plus “Girls Fall Like Dominoes” and a version of “Roman’s Revenge” that swaps Eminem for Lil Wayne.
After just over a decade in the music industry, 2020 looked to be one of Nicki’s biggest year yet. She earned two #1 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for her “Trolls” collaboration with Tekashi 6ix9ine and Doja Cat‘s “Say So.” But the Queen wouldn’t be here if it were not for her culture-shocking debut album, Pink Friday. Released on November 22, 2010, Nicki’s 3x Platinum debut reached #1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 Albums chart and spent six weeks at number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in 2011.
Pink Friday received three Grammy nominations and took home the award for “Rap Album of the Year” at the annual American Music Awards. This year, Nicki Minaj is nominated for Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist. Her “Tusa” collaboration with Karol G is also nominated for Best Latin Song.
Tune into see if Nicki takes home the win at the 2020 American Music Awards, which will air Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
