Golden– Jill Scott photo credit Da Vinci, Editor in Chief of Your Life After 25, has carved out her own position as a â€œRealistic Optimist,â€ and modern day Renaissance woman.Born in Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago and raised in Queens, New York, she gained public recognition after releasing three mixtapes between 2007 to 2009 and subsequently signed to Young Money Entertainment in 2009. Minaj made her film debut in the 2012 animated film Ice Age: Continental Drift, followed by supporting roles in The Other Woman (2014) and Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016).Tensions escalated after Carey said that Minaj did not have a number-one song on the Billboard Hot 100 during a live broadcast in May 2013, to which Minaj responded in a series of "extremely harsh" tweets directed at the singer.During an MTV interview, she said that her third album would be "next level" and have "much to talk about": "I'm really excited and the people that have been working with me now, have been people that I haven't worked with before so it's like they're bringing a new sound to the album that I've never experimented with." During the recording process Minaj recorded two songs that were inspired by Irish singer-songwriter Enya, Minaj stated that the songs contain "airiness and the whimsicalness" that reminded her of Enya.
The "exorcism" scene that was performed during her appearance was criticized as well.
The album was officially released on December 15, 2014, peaking at number-two on the Billboard 200 chart.
On June 29, Minaj became the only artist to win the BET Award for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist for five consecutive years, while also tying Missy Elliott for the most wins with five.
