“Pink Friday 2” is Minaj’s first album in five years, the longest she’s gone between releasing studio album projects. Her newest album features collaborations with Drake, Lil Wayne, Lil Uzi Vert, J. Cole and Future. According to Billboard chart data, the sequel album, which has been informally in production for more than a decade, reached one million units sold in the U.S. Monday.

“Thank you to every single one of you listening [and] supporting this album, the best label Republic Records, the GREATEST artists in the WORLD of our generation featured when I needed them the most,” Minaj wrote on Instagram.

Additionally, Minaj’s 2024 tour will feature two performances at music festivals — Rolling Loud California and Dreamville Festival. Additionally, in response to “incredible fan demand,” Minaj added more North American cities to her tour including Atlanta, Nashville, Chicago, Toronto and Brooklyn with more overseas shows including Amsterdam, Paris and Stockholm.
