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.

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.
