Attention, Barbz! Nicki Minaj is officially No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the week is just getting started for the “Super Freaky Girl” rapper, who will receive the coveted Video Vanguard Award at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards this weekend.
Earlier in the month, the rap queen dropped a limited collection of merch to coincide with the long-awaited return of her popular Queen Radio show on Aug. 11.
The unisex merch, available exclusively at Amazon’s Queen Radio storefront, consists of a black T-shirt ($35) and black hoodie ($60) designed after the Queen Radio logo and features a colorful illustration of Minaj on the front sporting pink hair with a pop of turquoise. Both pieces are available in sizes ranging from S to XXL, while supplies last.
“I am very excited to be partners with Amazon on bringing back Queen Radio,” Minaj said on Instagram Live at the time, according to Complex. “Queen Radio is something that is so dear to my heart. Of course, there have been times where I’ve thought about not wanting to do Queen Radio, or any radio for that matter, but why not?”
Minaj debuted her “Super Freaky Girl” single during the show. In its first week, the single went on to rack up 21.1 million streams, sold 89,000 downloads and snagged 4.6 million radio airplay audience impressions.
The 39-year-old rapper has been busy this summer. In addition to bringing Queen Radio back, Minaj headlined Essence Fest and Wireless Festival in July, and linked up with Drake and Lil Wayne for a Young Money reunion at October’s World Weekend in Toronto.
“Nicki has broken barriers for women in hip-hop with her versatility and creative artistry,” Bruce Gillmer, Paramount’s president of music, music talent, programming & events and Paramount+ chief content officer, music, said in a statement. “She has shifted the music industry and cemented her status as a global superstar with her crossover appeal, genre-defying style and continuing to be unapologetically ‘Nicki’.”
Fans can watch Minaj receive her Video Vanguard Award when the MTV VMAs air this Sunday (Aug. 28).
