As further proof of her global star power, last night saw Nicki Minaj take her ‘Pink Friday World Tour‘ to the French capital,Paris.
The latest stop on the global event, the Rapper touched down at the Zénith de Paris armed with the upbeat stage show and the benefit of its hype.
This, spearheaded by the recent success of her new single ‘Pound The Alarm‘ which is well on its way to becoming one of the fastest selling UK singles to be released any artist , of any genre.
Her Parisian set also comes before she launches her UK arena tour this winter, marking the first time a Female Rapper will headline her own show at London’s 02 Arena.
However, until that happens peep more from Paris below…
Though there’s been an effort to downplay Minaj’s success in recent months, it’s become a tad difficult to deny or overlook her enormous winning streak.
From the commercial success of her sophomore LP on a global scale to her lucrative ‘situations’ with MAC and Pepsi , Minaj- despite the mishandling of many a single- is without a doubt Rap’s best answer to Pop music.
Interesting, as she is hellbent on labeling herself a ‘Hip Hop‘ act through and through, when the bulk of her stock is invested in her role as a Pop Rapper.
‘Popular’ enough to pose a serious threat to both Rihanna and Katy Perry‘s Billboard pesos.
‘Popular’ enough to launch her very own world tour- casting a pink shadow over the efforts of those who may never enjoy the global acclaim she and her cause stay reeling in.
The global acclaim her rivals wish they had but always fall short of securing.
