Young Money’s leading lady taps into her English fanbase.
2012 has already been quite the year for Nicki Minaj. Still riding high of the success of her David Guetta assisted #1 single “Turn Me On”, she’s gearing up to top the charts yet again, and potentially even breaking some records this go round.
Her latest single “Starships” has been an instant hit in the United Kingdom where it’s currently sitting at number 5 on the charts, the first top 5 from a female rapper since Missy Elliott’s “4 My People.” This is big news for the rapper who can go in and out of her English accent for fun.
If the record continues to rise in the coming weeks, it will set a new record as the highest charting single by a female rapper on the UK charts–a feat she’s more than likely to achieve considering there is still no video for the song, and she’s yet to perform it anywhere.
In addition to breaking these records, she’s already set the record this year for the most viewed video on VEVO thanks to the visuals for her promo single “Stupid Hoe,” and it’s only March. Congrats to Nicki.
Her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is now set to be released on April 3rd.
