AMP Music Minute: Nicki Minaj Tops Twitter, Ne-Yo’s New Acting Role In ‘Red Tails’ And Lady Gaga Plans Album & Tour for 2012
[photogallerylink id=134676 align=right][lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm] is at the top of her game. In fact she is at the top of just about every game she plays. The Queens bred Barbie already has a platinum-selling album in her debut, Pink Friday, Mattel made her a real Barbie, she’s got her name on nail polish, OPI, and she even has a rapport with camera company, Casio. Her next target was Twitter. Consider that one conquered too!
After only 2 years in the pro rap game, Nicki Minaj is the most followed hip hop artist on Twitter, besting [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eminem[/lastfm] by only a slight margin. Sitting at a cool 8,262,053, Em is not far behind at all with 8,241,482. All signs point to the Young Money rapper pulling away from Em as she reaches an even more iconic status.
We expect she will take her Twitter followers to levels of [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Justin Beiber[/lastfm] with the advent of her new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, due out Valentine’s Day of this year.
To put her Twitter victory in better context, her Young Money cohorts, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Drake[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lil Wayne[/lastfm] only rake up 5.1 million and 4.9 million respectively in followers. So basically Nicki has as many followers as the both of them combined.
You go girl!
