Coming straight out of Queens in the late noughties, Nicki Minaj has become one of the biggest entertainers in pop. And in a relatively short space of time we've already seen enough to put together this list of the best Niki Minaj songs. Take, for example, the butt-heavy ‘Anaconda’ video, which broke the internet last year and her latest album ‘The Pinkprint’, which was streamed 17 million times in the US during its first week of release. But we shouldn’t forget that Nicki first broke as a quickfire rap MC, and that she’s got serious rhyming skills to go with her larger-than-life pop persona.
Sexually empowered, outspoken about gender equality and genuinely multi-talented, Nicki Minaj shouldn’t be underrated. Here’s our tribute: the 20 best Nicki Minaj songs, ranging from pop bangers to pulsing hip hop, with guest appearances by Minaj groupies like Eminem and Drake.
