The seminal mixtape cemented Nicki as a future icon when it initially landed on April 18, 2009.

Recognized as an undisputed landmark release, Beam Me Up Scotty launched Nicki’s first hit “I Get Crazy” [feat. Lil Wayne]. At the time, the song vaulted into the top 20 of the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart and top 40 of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. Beyond reworking notable hits such as Soulja Boy Tell’em’s “Donk,DJ Khaled T-Pain’s “Go Hard,” and V.I.C.’s “Get Silly, the 23-track opus heralded Nicki as an elite rapper with expansive vision and earth-shattering promise.  Her signature flow scorched originals such as “Kill Da DJ” and “Keys Under Palm Trees” and placed her in grasp of the throne as Queen
 
Expanding the original tracklisting, she also locks and loads Beam Me Up Scotty with standalone anthems “Boss Ass Bitch (Remix)” and “Chi-Raq” (with G Herbo) as well as three brand new tracks including her new song “Seeing Green” (with Drake & Lil Wayne), “Fractions,” and “Crocodile Teeth (Remix)” (with Skillibeng).” Check out the full tracklisting below.

Recently, Nicki’s hit “Anaconda” passed 1 billion views on YouTube. She’s the first female rapper to accomplish such a feat on a solo track and now has six music videos with over the billion-view mark.  
 
This year, Nicki will also release a new docuseries coming to HBO Max. The series is directed by six-time Emmy nominee Michael John Warren, who made his directorial debut with Jay-Z’s “Fade to Black.” Each of the six half-hour episodes of this untitled project will explore Nicki’s brilliantly creative mind and tell the story of her personal and professional journey. With complete honesty, Nicki will guide viewers through the most challenging and fulfilling times in her life, navigating highs, lows and misguided agendas in her stratospheric rise to fame and her journey to motherhood.

About Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj has set the tone in music, fashion and beauty for more than a decade – making history and building her superstar personal brand along the way. 
 
Minaj was the first Woman with 100 Billboard Hot 100 Hits, with an astounding 114 entries total to date (the most among female hip-hop acts), two #1 hits, 59 top 40 Hot 100 hits (also a record among female hip-hop acts), and 19 top 10 Hot 100 hits (another record among female hip-hop acts). She also holds the record as a songwriter for the “Most Billboard Hot 100 Entries Among Women in the 2010s.”  Recently, Nicki’s hit “Anaconda” passed 1 billion views on YouTube. She’s the first female rapper to accomplish such a feat on a solo track and now has six music videos with over the billion-view mark. Celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2020, her landmark debut Pink Friday sold over 375,000 copies in its first week, according to MRC Data, – the largest sales week for a female hip-hop artist since Lauryn Hill in 1998. 
 
In addition to music, Minaj has made numerous TV and film appearances, including as a judge on “American Idol” along with film roles in 2014’s “The Other Woman” alongside Kate Upton, Cameron Diaz, and Leslie Mann and 2016’s “Barbershop: The Next Cut.” She’s also done voiceover for “Ice Age: Continental Drift.” What’s more, she’s had high-profile deals with Fendi, Adidas, H&M, Diesel, Mercedes-Benz, Sprint and Pepsi, released a nail polish collection with OPI and was the face of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign.

Not to mention, she is a co-owner of TIDAL, and her BEATS 1 QUEEN radio show stands out as “the highest-rated show in Apple Music history.
 
After a decade since Pink Friday introduced her to the mainstream, 2020 was another big year for Nicki Minaj with two number ones on the Billboard Hot 100. These achievements further sealed her place in history among the most influential artists ever.

Pornhub Collab with Art Primo

Pornhub Announces Limited Edition Spray Paint and Apparel Collaboration with Art Primo

Adult Entertainment Platform Debuts Collection with Creative Video Featuring Prominent Names from Pornhub’s Model Program

Pornhub, the premier online destination for adult entertainment, today announced the launch of its collaboration with independent art supply company, Art Primo, through a new video featuring well-known models from Pornhub’s Model Program. The Pornhub x Art Primo limited edition collection, designed by Dan Climan, features a spray paint can of the brand’s signature “Pornhub Orange,” as well as tote bags and apparel including a short-sleeve t-shirt, long-sleeve shirt and hoodie.

“Both graffiti and pornography invite the viewer to follow the artist on a voyage of self-expression and exploration, in the most non-conventional of ways and without apology.  Because of this, Pornhub was a natural choice for our first-ever crossover launch,” said Anne Greebich of Art Primo about the collaboration.

The video directed by Gogy Esparza takes us on an adrenaline-filled voyeuristic night throughout the darkest corners of New York City in follow-doc style featuring graffiti artists Goog, Karma, Easy, Nep, and Seo. In signature Esparza style, Gogy uses quick cuts and mashups of the artists tagging alleyways and abandoned walls to shots of fast cars and beautiful women showing the audience the unparalleled energy into this illusive world.

The video features models Chiara Charles, LAYA, Zoë Kestan, and Andrea Martinez alongside Pornhub ambassadors Asa Akira, Kira Noir, and popular names from Pornhub’s Model Program, including Janessa Brazil, Toya Tickles, Britney Amber, Autumn Falls, Abigail Mac, and Alexis Tae. 

This is the second time Esparza has collaborated with Pornhub; he most recently directed HEROTICA, a capsule collection and short film/look book in collaboration with design duo, NAMILIA. The collection was unveiled during New York Fashion Week in February of 2020 and featured an all-Asian cast of runway models and Pornhub models Marica Hase, Jade Kush and Asa Akira. 

Pornhub’s Art Primo collaboration is the latest in the company’s foray into fashion and retail. Building on the success of the collaboration with NAMILIA’s at NYFW, the designers Nan Li and Emilia Pfohl created a capsule collection in collaboration with the brand. In previous years, the company has worked with Hood by Air, a cult-favorite fashion brand designed by Shayne Oliver and Richardson, a popular streetwear brand. 

“Pornhub has become the standard and an instantly recognizable classic in itself. The shade used for the spray paint is iconic; this orange is undoubtedly Pornhub Orange, and we sought out to craft a unique new tool for anyone to foster creativity and self-expression. I really wanted to elevate this timelessness with the graphic design of the can. It’s quite minimal and, with everything being so flashy these days, I think the design will stand out for its simplicity,” said the designer, Dan Climan.

Robert Grace – Fake Fine

Irish pop newcomer Robert Grace releases “Fake Fine,” marking Robert’s first release with Sony Music Germany/RCA Records. Robert has the ability to write slices of cool heartfelt pop readymade for radio and his current single “Fake Fine” is no exception. Showcasing Robert’s skills as a songwriter and a performer in his own right, “Fake Fine” sums up the trials and tribulations of living in the current climate.

“The song is about pretending to be ok when you’re really not,” says Robert. “When everything is all an act. You might not even be in a bad situation but still, for some reason somethings not right and you’re trying to figure out what that something is.”

Robert has developed into a hugely in-demand songwriter, having co-written tracks with Dan McDougall, Blair MacKichan, and Josh Wilkinson. His previous track “Moving Fast” was track of the week on 2fm and his song “The Good Place” was added to the influential “Easy” playlist on Spotify. The Kilkenny singer-songwriter has performed at Ireland’s biggest festivals Electric Picnic & Indiependence, as well as co-writing with some of the most prestigious songwriters in the UK.

“Sounding like a cross between Lauv, Twenty One Pilots and blackbear, “Fake Fine’s” fun melody and tone offers an upbeat feel to the track’s thought-provoking lyrics about the trials and tribulations of living in the current climate. It’s readymade for radio play.” Record of the Day UK

Naming her as one of the “breakout musicians ready to rock your summer,” Elle observed, ‘Wonderland’ punctuates lyrics about self-worth and self-care with soul-thumping beats.” She is touring in support of her sophomore album, AWAKE (Astralwerks), which entered Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart at No. 1 a feat she also accomplished with her self-titled 2015 debut album, Run.

It’s not hard to imagine the pyrotechnics that might accompany this track in a set, or the reaction from the crowd when it’s dropped.” Download / stream “Easy” (Kaivon Remix) HERE.
