Info

Onika Tanya Maraj (born December 8, 1982),[3] known professionally as Nicki Minaj (/mɪˈnɑːʒ/), is a Trinidadian-born American rapper, singer, songwriter, model, and actress.[4][5][6] Born in Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago and raised in Queens, New York, she gained public recognition after releasing three mixtapes between 2007 to 2009 and subsequently signed to Young Money Entertainment in 2009.

Minaj's first and second studio albums, Pink Friday (2010) and Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (2012), both peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and produced the successful singles "Super Bass" and "Starships", the latter of which became one of the best-selling singles of all time. In 2010, Minaj became the first female solo artist to have seven singles simultaneously charting on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. Her third studio album, The Pinkprint (2014), was preceded by its second single, "Anaconda", which peaked at number two on the Hot 100 and is her highest-charting single in the U.S. to date. Minaj made her film debut in the 2012 animated film Ice Age: Continental Drift, followed by supporting roles in The Other Woman (2014) and Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016). In 2013, she was a judge on the twelfth season of American Idol.

Minaj was the first female artist included on MTV's Annual Hottest MC List, with a New York Times editor saying that some consider her to be "the most influential female rapper of all time".[7] In 2016, Minaj was included on the annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.[8] Her rapping is distinctive for its fast flow and the use of alter egos and accents, primarily British cockney. Early in her career, Minaj was known for her colorful costumes and wigs. As of 2017, she is the world's most followed rapper on Instagram.[9]

Throughout her career, Minaj has received ten Grammy Award nominations, in addition to winning six American Music Awards, eleven BET Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, and the 2011 Billboard Women in Music Rising Star Award. She has the most Billboard Hot 100 entries among women of all genres in the chart's history.[10] Additionally, she is the best-selling female rapper of all time, having sold 20 million singles as a lead artist, 60 million singles as a featured artist, and over five million albums worldwide.[11][12][13]
