Nicki's Journey in the Industry
Minaj rose to fame in 2010, after releasing hit song "Super Bass," which became a summer anthem worldwide. She went on to collaborate with Justin Bieber in his hit song "Beauty and a Beat," before releasing hit after hit until her announced retirement.
Just last month, Minaj joined LaLa Anthony and Megan Thee Stallion in shooting the "Hot Girl Summer" video, which is Megan's newest song which Nicki collaborated in.
Back in June, she also released a song entitled "Megatron," hinting that she had a new album coming soon, which would be her fifth. Now that she's announced her retirement, though, it is unsure whether or not she's decided to forgo the album altogether, or still release it as one last gift to her fans.
