Nicki Minaj has just released her latest musical endeavor titled “Press Play.” In this fresh track, the Queens-born artist collaborated with Atlanta’s own Future, bringing a dynamic fusion to the ATL Jacob-produced song. The track is prominently featured on the recently unveiled “Gag City PLUTO Edition” of her Pink Friday 2LP. 

Minaj’s lyrical prowess shines through as she confidently declares, “Set the tone like a vocal coach, they said, ‘Why can’t you be Yoncé?’” Delving into her personal narrative, she reflects on her upbringing with the lines, “Daddy wasn’t no businessman, mama wasn’t no business owner,” offering listeners a glimpse into her journey. The verses are laced with Minaj’s signature attitude and self-assuredness, asserting, “You can’t be me, I’m already it.” 

As the rapper continues to deliver memorable lines such as “I am your label’s obsession, you’s another guinea pig” and “Been on the chart so long, I told Billboard to dust it,” she solidifies her status in the music industry. The track is a testament to her enduring presence, with Minaj playfully challenging the competition, stating, “These sheep ain’t got the nerve, I heard I done struck it.”

Nicki Minaj’s latest album, Pink Friday 2, continues to shatter records for the pop superstar. 

According to Chart Data, Minaj’s latest offering has broken another record by becoming the fastest album by a female rapper to surpass one billion streams on Spotify. 

The Young Money hitmaker is now also the first female rapper in history to have five albums surpassing one billion streams on the streaming platform. 

2010’s Pink Friday, 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, 2014’s The Pinkprint and 2018’s Queen have all previously reached the milestone. 

Pink Friday 2 arrived at much fanfare in December — the same day as Nicki Minaj’s 41st birthday — and quickly made a splash, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 228,000 first-week units. 

In doing so, Nicki became the first female rapper in history to score three No. 1 albums, breaking a long-standing tie with Foxy Brown.
