She should be proud of herself!
Nicki Minaj's debut album, Pink Friday, landed the #2 spot on the Billboard Album charts, coming only below Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, and selling 375,000 copies - a number a female MC hasn't bested since Lauryn Hill's The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill over ten years ago!
"I feel this weird calm feeling. I'm just so grateful and kind of still in shock. These numbers haven't been put up since 1998. It just makes me feel proud of my team, proud of my fans, everyone who has had something to do with my dreams. Finally, we are seeing this dream come to fruition. It feels incredible. Now I can promote the body of work. I feel like I gave birth to my baby, now I'm gonna teach it how to walk and how to talk and spoil the baby."
Enjoy it, bb!
You've clearly worked hard for such a deserved accomplishment!
Now go out and enjoy it!
