It’s going to be a busy 2024 for Nicki Minaj, who will be taking Pink Friday 2 on the road this spring for shows in North America and Europe. In total, the trek is made up of nearly 40 dates, which LiveNation recently revealed is her highest-selling tour to date. Tickets are on sale now.

Pink Friday 2 was released to critical acclaim last month, on the same day as the New York native’s 41st birthday. It quickly made a splash and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 228,000 first-week units.

With that, Nicki became the first female rapper in history to score three No. 1 albums, breaking free from her long-standing tie with Foxy Brown.

The “I’ll Be” hitmaker — who topped the chart twice in the 1990s with Chyna Doll and The Firm: The Album alongside Nas, AZ and Naturecongratulated her successor on social media.

“Umm sir! Only Nic could break tha king[‘s] record,” she wrote, before adding: “Hella proud. 26 year record is brazy tho. Y’all mean to tell me no bitch broke that shit in my absence! Took twin to set tha bar again!”

Pink Friday 2 also set a new record on the Billboard Hot 100 last month when 17 of its 22 songs landed on the chart, which is the most from any album by a female rapper.



Despite the LP’s tremendous success, not everyone has shared Foxy Brown’s enthusiasm about it. Earlier this month, Wack 100 upset the Barbz after claiming that Pink Friday 2 isn’t as record-breaking as reports suggest.

“I don’t know about no breaking records. Ain’t none of them [first-week] numbers breaking nobody’s records right now from no artist,” he said on Clubhouse.

he also suggested that Cardi B is the bigger artist right now, despite Nicki having a deeper discography.

The self-proclaimed Queen of Rap seemingly responded by rhetorically asking her followers on Twitter: “Barbz did we break any records?”
