Being a sequel, Pink Friday 2 is Minaj’s first studio album in five years following the release of Queen (2018), which debuted at the Number 2 spot on the Billboard 200 charts. The album includes collaborations with J. Cole, Lil Wayne, Tate Kobang, Drake, Lourdiz, Lil Uzi Vert, Skillibeng, Skeng, Future, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, and 50 Cent. It was supported by two singles, “Super Freaky Girl” and “Last Time I Saw You”, the former of which debuted at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 and the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. 

With this, Minaj became the first solo female rapper to debut at the summit of the Billboard Hot 100 since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998 and the first female rapper to debut a solo song at number one in the 21st century.

Most recently, the “Barbie Dangerous” rapper has been celebrating the 22-track set release with her fans, who took to social media to contribute AI artwork to the Barbz fictional Gag City designed around the album, which has been heavily participated in by many well-known big companies like “Oreo,” “Pizza Hut,” and “Baskin Robbins,” among others. Minaj also surprised her fans by releasing an alternate version of the track, “Beep Beep,” which features 50 cents on an exclusive version of PF2 that is available for a limited time.
