Proving she was more than just eye candy, Minaj flexed her lyrical dexterity on the underground mixtape circuit (Beam Me Up Scotty and Barbie World) and delivered epic verses on a plethora of guest features such as ‘Bed Rock’, with Lil Wayne and fellow newcomer Drake; ‘My Chick Bad’, with Ludacris; and her show-stealing appearance on ‘Monster’, accompanied by hip-hop heavyweights Kanye West, Jay Z and Rick Ross. Anticipation was high for Pink Friday, which landed on 22 November 2010. As one of the most exciting and unique newcomers on the hip-hop landscape, Minaj used her debut album as a showcase for her versatility and the unpredictable personalities of her alter egos, harnessing a genre-bending musicality that took in everything from underground cuts to crossover smashes. Consisting of 18 tracks, with contributions from an all-star cast of guests, including will.i.am, Kanye West and Natasha Bedingfield, Pink Friday touted deep album tracks that catered to her diverse audience, in...
But the strength of the album lay in Minaj’s innate ability to craft pop-rap crossovers that skyrocketed up the Billboard charts. An unprecedented eight singles were released from Pink Friday, raising the bar for other mainstream rap stars to follow. Her debut, ‘Massive Attack’, was a clear stylistic departure from Minaj’s mixtapes and guest appearances, and peaked at No.22 on the Billboard Hot 100. The first track to be lifted from Pink Friday, Annie Lennox-sampled pop-rap ballad ‘Your Love’, a track Minaj had recorded a few years earlier, became a surprise hit when it peaked at No.14 after being leaked to radio, while the electro-pop of ‘Check It Out’, a joint single with will-i-am, also took Minaj to the top of the charts. While Pink Friday is loaded with hits, two singles officially sent Minaj into the pop stratosphere: the Drake-assisted ‘Moment 4 Life’, which became an inspirational anthem, and Minaj’s true crossover hit, ‘Super Bass’, which became her first Top 10 entry as a...

With her message of female empowerment, her singular style and her energetic persona, she created an undeniable movement. Pink Fridaywas a runaway success, selling over three million records, launching Minaj as a global icon and crowning her the new queen of hip-hop. In its first week of release, the album debuted at No.2 on the Billboard 200, selling 375,000 copies. It would ultimately reach No.1 on the chart. Building off the blueprint of those who came before her, Minaj blazed a new trail of her own, and Pink Fridayremains an influential body of work whose DNA can be heard in the stylings of Cardi B, Meg Thee Stallion, Lizzo, Doja Cat and Kash Doll.
