Trinidadian born-American rapper and singer Nicki Minaj has released a total of four studio albums, three compilation albums, three mixtapes, thirty two singles as a lead artist, seventy two singles as a featured artist, and nine promotional singles.

After becoming involved with music and acting in high school in New York City, Minaj eventually picked up rapping.[1] She was discovered by American rapper Lil Wayne and signed to Young Money Entertainment—a subdivision of Cash Money Records with distribution through Republic Records—in 2009.[2] Minaj's first solo single, "Your Love", peaked at number 14 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and topped the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart, an achievement that made Minaj the first female artist to top the chart as a solo artist since 2002.[3] Her next three singles, "Check It Out", "Right Thru Me" and "Moment 4 Life", all peaked within the top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. Minaj's debut studio album, Pink Friday, was released in November 2010, topping the US Billboard 200. The album's fifth single, "Super Bass", peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached the top ten in multiple other countries.

Minaj's second studio album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded (2012), debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. The album also entered the UK Albums Chart at number one, making Minaj the highest-charting female rapper in the chart's history.[4] The album's lead single, "Starships", peaked at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and reached the top 10 in multiple other countries. An expanded version of Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded subtitled, The Re-Up, was released in November 2012.[5] Minaj's third studio album, The Pinkprint (2014), debuted at number two on the Billboard 200. The album's second single, "Anaconda", peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and is her highest charting single in the United States to date. Further singles, "Only" and "Truffle Butter", peaked within the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2014, Minaj shared lead credit on the single "Bang Bang" with Jessie J and Ariana Grande. The song scored Minaj her first number one in the UK and peaked at number three in the US.

Minaj's fourth studio album, Queen (2018) debuted at number two on the Billbaord 200, and included the single "Chun-Li" peaking at number ten on the Billboard Hot 100. Further singles including "Barbie Tingz", "Bed" and "Barbie Dreams" peaked within the top fifty on the Billboard Hot 100.

Since 2010, Minaj has accumulated 100 chart entries on the Billboard Hot 100 (including featured credits), making her the first woman to reach 100 entries and giving her the most entries among women of all genres.[6] Additionally, she has earned 17 top ten singles in her career, also giving her the most among female rappers.[7]
