New York rapper Nicki Minaj is making history. The superstar’s “Anaconda” music video has just put her in elite company.
Nicki Minaj Is The First Female Rapper To Reach 1 Billion Views
“Anaconda” passed 1 billion views on YouTube on Saturday. 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, joining Katy Perry and Rihanna as the only female artists to do so.
Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” video was record breaking since the first day it was released on YouTube. Directed by Colin Tilley and filmed within two days in Los Angeles, the hyper-sexual visual premiered on VEVO via YouTube on August 19, 2014. Nicki shared it at midnight and 19.6 million views later, it became the most watched video within a 24-hour time frame on the platform. (REVOLT TV)

Nicki Minaj Dishes On Pregnancy + Giving Birth
In late December 2020, the Queens native went to her Twitter page and didn’t hold back on telling all. Nicki tweeted about everything related to her tummy throughout a publicized pregnancy and how she’s handling her current mommy duties.
“[Did the baby kick/play a lot or was he calm @NICKIMINAJ I have so many questions] He used to kick me so hard every night at the same time if I didn’t get up & walk with him. He had a full personality in my tummy & knew how to get his way. It was so intriguing to me. He does the same thing now. 🥳”
“[Did your water break at home and what was that experience getting to the hospital ? Was zoo scared??] Yes. I was butt naked. Just got out the shower & I asked him to rub my back. As soon as I started scooting over to him in the bed I just felt the water start coming out. I was weirdly calm & I quietly said “omg, I’m about to be in labor” He was very scared & I was laughing @ him.”
