Nicki Minaj kicks off the “Pink Friday 2” tour with record-breaking milestones, including debuting at No. 1 on U.S. Billboard 200.

Earlier this month, Minaj dropped her long-awaited album, ‘Pink Friday 2’, which boasted features from pop and rap megastars such as Lil Uzi Vert, J. Cole, Drake, Billie Eilish, and more.

The full-length album is one of the most-anticipated rap sequels of all time.

“Pink Friday 2” has yet another score first in Nicki Minaj’s career, with her first gospel chart-topper with “Blessings.”

The head Barb’s collaboration with gospel superstar Tasha Cobbs Leonard on the song hit No. 1 on the magazine’s Hot Gospel chart based on sales, streams, and airplay.

“In the Dec. 8-14 tracking week, “Blessings” garnered 3.1 million official U.S. streams. It also sold 3,000 downloads, arriving atop both Gospel Streaming Songs (where it’s Leonard’s fifth No. 1 and Minaj’s first) and Gospel Digital Song Sales (marking Leonard’s 10th leader and Minaj’s second),” Billboard reported. 

The Queen of Barbz continues her strong run on Billboard charts with 17 songs earning spots on the US Hot 100.

According to Chart Data, Nicki’s latest project has become the female rap album with the highest number of songs to appear on the US Hot 100, with 17 of its 22 tracks landing on the chart.

 Lil Uzi Vert’s assisted “Everybody” topped at No. 26, followed by the Drake collaboration “Needle” at No. 34 and “FTCU” at No. 42.

Other tracks on the US Hot 100 include “Barbie Dangerous” (No. 58), “Are You Gone Already” (No. 60), “Let Me Calm Down” featuring J. Cole (No. 63), “Beep Beep” (No. 64), “Big Difference” (No. 73) and “RNB” featuring Lil Wayne and Tate Kobang (No. 80).

Another historic milestone comes shortly after as Nicki Minaj broke a separate record on the Billboard 200.
