Nicki Minaj rose to fame in 2010.

The Trinidad and Tobago native released the album "Pink Friday" in November of 2010 and watched as it sold 500,000 copies in just a couple weeks. The main single off this CD, "Your Love," was also a major hit, rising the number-14 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In October of that year, Minaj became the first artist to have seven songs on this chart simultaneously. Minaj is a rapper with a major career ahead of her.
