NICKI MINAJ has smashed yet another record. As “Truffle Butter” [featuring Drake & Lil Wayne], “Only” [featuring Drake, Lil Wayne, & Chris Brown], “Feeling Myself” [featuring Beyoncé] occupy Top 10 spots at Urban Radio, Minaj becomes the “first female artist in history to simultaneously land three songs as lead artist in the Top 10 at the format,” according to Mediabase and Billboard.
What’s more, she is also featured on another Top 10 mainstay, Rae Sremmurd’s “Throw Sum” [featuringNicki Minaj and Young Thug], giving her a total of four simultaneous songs in the Top 10 as a lead or featured artist. The only other artist in history to achieve this incredible feat is her “Only” collaborator and label mate, Lil Wayne. All this, as “Truffle Butter” climbs to #1 on the BDS-powered Billboard Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop chart.
In addition to officially making history today, the Grammy Award-nominated, record-shattering hip-hop goddess unveils the North American dates for her highly anticipated, The Pinkprint Tour. The tour launches Friday July 17 in Dallas, TX at Gexa Energy Pavilion and lands in major markets across the U.S. and Canada before finishing Wednesday August 19 at Rexall Place in Edmonton, AB.
