On Dec. 12, Nicki Minaj released her fifth album, “The Pinkprint”. This album includes songs featuring artist such as Beyoncé, Chris Brown, Drake, Ariana Grande, Skylar Grey, Jeremih, Lil Wayne, Lunchmoney Lewis, and Meek Mill. “The Pinkprint” came up to number 2 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, selling 244,000 copies.

Although this album is marked as explicit and pretty much every song has a countless number of derogatory words, some fans believe that’s what makes the songs have that Nicki Minaj feel. The writers didn't just put those words in there because they can get away with it. The words, good and bad, put a depth in the music that some rap songs lack. Minaj has always been my favorite rap artist because of her raw and true lyrics. My favorite song on the album is “Grand Piano”. It’s the first song she's ever performed or written that isn’t vulgar.

Minaj made her first movie, viewable on YouTube, titled “The Pinkprint Movie”. “The Pinkprint Movie” tells the story of a relationship holding by its last threads. This video - which includes parts from “The Crying Game”, “I Lied” and “Grand Piano”- captures the attention of anyone who has or is going through a really hard breakup.

The Pinkprint is sold any place where CDs are usually sold, including iTunes, and Walmart carries the clean version of the entire album.
