One of the most impactful artists of the 21st century, Nicki Minaj is one of only two women with 100+ singles on the Hot 100 chart, the most followed rapper on Instagram, and 55B+ global streams of her music. Queen Radio: Volume 1 features Nicki Minaj's biggest hits to date, all on one album, including the recent Billboard Hot 100 #1 "Super Freaky Girl."
Dropped via a surprise announcement from Nicki on Twitter, the streaming version of Queen Radio: Volume 1 hit the streets a few months back and now it’s finally available on CD, just in time for Christmas. The greatest hits compilation was released following the debut of Minaj’s smash-hit single, “Super Freaky Girl.” The song became Minaj’s first to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard charts, the first time a solo female rapper had done so in the 21st century. The song also broke the record for Spotify’s biggest debut from a solo female rap artist, according to the music streaming platform.
Queen Radio: Volume 1 features 28 of Nicki Minaj’s most popular songs from her impressive career, including “Anaconda,” “Truffle Butter,” “Starships,” “Pound The Alarm,” and many more.
In addition to music, Nicki Minaj has made numerous TV and film appearances, including as a judge on American Idol along with film roles in 2014’s The Other Woman alongside Kate Upton, Cameron Diaz, and Leslie Mann and 2016’s Barbershop: The Next Cut. She also did voiceover for Ice Age: Continental Drift. What’s more, she’s had high-profile deals with Fendi, Adidas, H&M, Diesel, Mercedes-Benz, Sprint, and Pepsi, released a nail polish collection with OPI and was the face of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign. Her branded lipstick, according to Racked, was the brand's highest-selling Viva Glam lipstick of all-time. Not to mention, she is a co-owner of TIDAL, and her BEATS 1 QUEEN radio show (which sparked the idea for Queen Radio: Volume 1) stands out as one of the highest-rated shows in Apple Music history.
