Nicki Minaj, one of the hottest artists on the planet, and indisputably the biggest breakthrough artist of 2011, has announced that the PINK FRIDAY TOUR will land in Australia in May, taking in shows in both Sydney and Melbourne.
2011 was an incredible year for Nicki, with her multi-platinum selling debut album PINK FRIDAY boasting the most charted singles by any female rap album in Billboard history. Nicki also became the first artist to have 7 singles on the Billboard HOT 100 chart simultaneously. She criss-crossed the US playing to massive sell-out audiences with friend and mentor Lil Wayne on the sold–out "I Am Music II" tour and then slayed audiences as the special guest on Britney Spear's US tour. In addition to winning Best Hip Hop Video at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards along with Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Album and Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Artist at the 2011 American Music Awards, Nicki was recently nominated for three Grammys for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, and Best Rap Album.
With 3 million albums sold globally, 15 million likes on Facebook, 8.5 million followers on Twitter and a profile that is rising by the day, 2012 looks like being an even bigger and better year for this 5' 2" phenomenon.
