Nicki Minaj Breaks Billboard Female Rap Album Record

By Kathy Iandoli

Nicki Minaj may be on a brief hiatus from making records, but she’s still breaking them.

The female rap vixen dropped her certified platinum debut album Pink Friday fourteen weeks ago. Since then, the album hasn’t left the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200 chart, thereby breaking yet another record for the most weeks in the Top 10 by a female rapper.

Last year Nicki had a whole slew of broken records under her pink heavyweight belt, as “Your Love” reached the number one spot on the Billboard Rap Songs chart (a first for female rappers since close to a decade), Nicki had the most appearances at one time by a female rapper on the Billboard Hot 100, and then became the first female MC since Eve to achieve the number one spot on the Billboard charts.

Nicki of course took this good news to the tweets as she broke her own news story herself.

“Now 14 weeks: PINK FRIDAY BREAKS the RECORD for MOST CONSECUTIVE weeks in the TOP 10 by a female rap album on Billboard’s 200. Thank you for your continued support,” @NickiMinaj tweeted.

Nicki will soon be working on her follow-up album. In the meantime, Barbie fans can catch her on Lil Wayne’s I AM Still Music / I AM Music II tour this Spring.
