Nicki Minaj Appears to Address Wack 100 Saying ‘Pink Friday 2’ Didn’t Break ‘No Records’

Nicki dropped Pink Friday 2 last month, and it’s her first studio album in five years. Fans and other listeners were anticipating the release as it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, moving 228,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, with 92,000 coming from pure album sales.

Despite Wack 100’s claims, the album broke several records. Thanks to the album’s chart success, Nicki became the first female rapper with three chart-topping albums.

The album also sold 25,000 copies on vinyl, giving Nicki the largest sales week for a female rap album in history on that format. Nicki also garnered 169.87 million streams for Pink Friday 2 in its first week, giving her the largest streaming week ever in her career, for a female rap album in the 2020s, and a female R&B/hip-hop album in 2023.
