Beautiful Black Women: Nicki Minaj for Harper’s BAZAAR Vietnam “Music Icon”
She’s not your average. Just this year the leader of the Barbie gang made even more major Her-story. Nicki became the very first female rapper to surpass 5 million units sold, per album. In a time where sales are not always guaranteed and things seem to resemble the 60’s with most artist barely even going Gold. Having selling power on such a large scale, is no easy feat.
Moreover, Minaj also continues to reinvent herself. Changing her style from boisterously outrageous to the sexy, demure baddie. Proving not only can she make waves in music, but be a true bonafide style maven.
Furthermore, Harper’s BAZAAR was more than happy to herald Nicki as a musical icon for their October 2018 edition. Regarding what readers will find out about inside the issue, the mag states,
