NICKI MINAJ painted the town pink during her one-night-only jam-packed concert aptly titled “Nicki Minaj Live! in Manila: Pink Friday Tour” at the SM Mall of Asia Arena last July 11, 2012. The tour was actually her first visit in the Philippines and it seemed that she already made quite an impression to her Filipino Barbies & Kens (Nicki’s teenage fans) --- “Manila, I can't thank you enough for tonight! You guys were absolutely incredible. Best night ever! Thank you! Speechless... I think Manila had the loudest encore screams I've ever heard! "WE WANT MORE, WE WANT MORE!!!" So I ran back out in my new pink robe! Ha! And then we drove out the venue and thousands of people were in the streets going crazy. I rolled the window down until I got in trouble”, Nicki tweeted Wednesday night.
Immediately after her successful show, MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) presented the “Super Bass” superstar her GOLD RECORD AWARD in recognition of the outstanding sales performance of her first album, PINK FRIDAY. Among those present in the awarding were International Label Manager MJ Juco, Marketing and Events Manager Grace Foronda and Advertising and Promotions Executives Arlene Garcia and Karen Hernandez.
Pink Friday debuted in November 2010 where it peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200. Nicki Minaj became the first female solo artist to have seven singles on the Billboard Hot 100 all at the same time. Her song, “Super Bass”, became the highest-charting Billboard Hot 100 rap hit by a solo female rapper in nearly a decade. This ‘boomin’ and tongue-twisting tune spawned international viral success with covers appearing everywhere. On the other hand, her newest album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, has already sold nearly 1.5 million albums worldwide. The current single, “Starships”, continues to fly on the Billboard Top 10 for twenty one consecutive weeks since its debut.
Nicki Minaj’s PINK FRIDAY and PINK FRIDAY: ROMAN RELOADED albums are out now in CDs exclusively under MCA Music available at Astroplus and Odyssey Music & Video or online via www.MyMusicStore.com.ph
