Before she signed with Young Money and released her debut album, Nicki Minaj was making history. Her Beam Me Up Scotty mixtape broke records, as it generated over 1 million sales. When she finally released her debut album, Nicki Minaj broke several records for females in the game. Even in the months after her album release, Nicki Minaj was still breaking records.
Last month, Nicki Minaj announced she had started working on her sophomore album and began releasing new singles. The second single released from her new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, was “Stupid Hoe.” While not calling names, it was obvious Nicki Minaj was taking shots at her longtime rival, Lil’ Kim.
Five days ago, Nicki Minaj released the official video of her “Stupid Hoe” single, which has become one of the most-popular music videos. “Stupid Hoe” has set a Vevo record for most views in a 24-hour span. In the span of one day, the music video had 4.8 million views. Vevo confirmed with DigitalSpy that the record had been broken by Nicki Minaj.
