The legendary rap sensation, Nicki Minaj, has demonstrated her unmatched talent by surpassing 28 billion Spotify streams, solidifying her status as a music industry icon and pioneer.

Nicki Minaj continues to raise the bar by becoming the fourth female artist and the first rapper to hit the historic 28 billion stream mark on Spotify. This outstanding accomplishment reaffirms her position as a dominant force in the music industry. With her extraordinary success, Minaj continues to show she is a true pioneer, breaking barriers and creating a lasting impression on the rap scene.

“@NICKIMINAJ has now surpassed 28 billion streams on Spotify across all credits. She’s the first female rapper to hit this milestone,” Chart Data reported.


The “Do We Got Have A Problem” rapper has been breaking many records lately. Last week, Minaj eclipsed Missy Elliot as the the longest-charting female rapper on Billboard’s Hot 100 because of her No.1 hit “Super Freaky Girl,” which charted again on the week of January 5, earning the hit a 20-week total.

However, despite the track’s success, Minaj was snubbed from the Grammy nominations this year. Minaj revealed that the song had been moved over to the pop category. Enraged by the Recording Academy’s decision, the rapper demanded that if she had to be put in the category, so should Latto for her big hit” Big Energy,” leading to a nasty online spat between the two.

In other music news, this past November, Minaj recently teamed up with Reggaeton artists Maluma and Myriam Fares for a new collaboration titled “Tukoh Taka.” The track served as the Official FIFA Fan Festival Anthem for 2022.

Queen, Minaj’s fourth studio album, dominated charts across the world and became a great success. It achieved platinum status in the US and gold status in the UK, dominating global charts as far as China. The Trinidadian rapper’s devoted fans eagerly anticipate her triumphant comeback due to Queen‘s phenomenal success.

On November 17, she will finally release her long-awaited comeback album and fans worldwide are eagerly counting down the minutes. The prospect of a tour merely heightens the anticipation, ensuring Minaj’s reign as the queen of rap remains. The return of the queen promises to be magnificent.
