Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday 2’ Album: All 22 Songs Ranked

Pink Friday 2 arrives 13 years after the Queens legend unleashed her acclaimed 2010 debut, the first Pink Friday, which topped the Billboard 200 and cemented Minaj as one of the genre’s stars and premier MCs, ready to take over the 2010s.

The legendary rapper often clashes with the best the genre has to offer when it’s album time, and Minaj isn’t afraid to push her pen against any rhymer. This time around, she invites Young Money brethren Drake and Lil Wayne to make appearances, as well as frequent collaborators Lil Uzi Vert and Future and a first official team-up with J. Cole.

For her fifth studio album, Nicki made sure to reconnect with her roots. “When I look back at a lot of my music, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, where was the me in it?’” she told Vogue last month. “So for this album, I went back to the old game plan … The idea that saying something like that could give hope to people — that optimistic outlook is something I think I got away from.”
