Queens rapper Nicki Minaj is continuing to break records with her debut album Pink Friday. According to a Tweet made by Nicki Minaj earlier this week Pink Friday has broken the record for the female rap album with the most consecutive weeks in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart.
“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,” Nicki Minaj Tweeted on Wednesday, March 2.
Weeks after its release Pink Friday sold 33,000 copies last week and managed to secure the Number 9 spot on the Billboard 200.
Not many albums by female Hip Hop artists have reached such accolades. Lil Kim’s The Notorious KIM, which debuted at Number 4 on the Billboard 200 chart in 2000 only managed to remain in the Top 10 for two consecutive weeks. Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill comes close to Nicki Minaj’s new record with 10 consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200.
Pink Friday was released on November 19, 2010 through Lil Wayne’s Young Money.
