Nicki Minaj's "Pink Friday 2" is already breaking records.

According to Chart Data, Minaj's new album, which was released on Friday, was streamed an eye-watering 41 million times on Spotify over the weekend, smashing the streaming platform's record for the biggest debut of an album by a female rapper.

“Barbz, Look,” wrote Minaj on X, the platform previously known as Twitter, sharing the Chart Data news with her fans.

"Pink Friday 2," the sequel to Minaj's 2010 debut "Pink Friday," has also already been certified gold having sold 500,000 units in the United States, according to Chart Data.

The 500,000 equivalent album units include sales and streams from the three singles – “Super Freaky Girl,” “Red Ruby Da Sleeze,” and “Last Time I Saw You" – Minaj released ahead of the album.

Minaj isn't done there, however.

According to Uproxx, the 41-year-old star is set to drop a deluxe version of "Pink Friday 2," which will include four new songs, in the near future.

One of the new songs will feature 50 Cent, who is linking up with Minaj for a remix of "Beep Beep."

Keyshia Cole and Monica will also appear together on a new track.
