About Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian-born American rapper, singer, songwriter and voice actress. Minaj recently re-released her second studio album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded The Re-Up." In April 2012, she released her second studio album, "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded," which topped charts internationally, and spawned the Top 10 singles "Starships" and "Pound the Alarm." Since then, the album has sold one million copies worldwide, and has become one of the best-selling albums of 2012, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
