    Nicki Minaj Pays Tribute to Princess Diana During UK Show, Breaks Records with Collaboration

    Nicki Minaj brought out her British alter ego, Martha, during a recent tour stop in the UK to pay homage to the late Princess Diana. The 41-year-old rapper held a moment of silence for the Princess of Wales while performing in Birmingham, reminiscing about her “dear friend.”

    Martha was first introduced to fans on Minaj’s debut album Pink Friday in 2010. In 2023, Minaj collaborated with Ice Spice on a song named after Princess Diana, which made history for both artists. The single, “Princess Diana,” was downloaded 77,000 times in less than two weeks after its release, marking the best sales week for any rap title since Minaj’s “Super Freaky Girl” in 2022.

    The collaboration also allowed Ice Spice to earn her first No. 1 Hot Rap Song and Minaj to become the rapper with the most No. 1 hits on the Digital Song Sales chart, surpassing Drake with her 14th No. 1. The duo released an EP of “Princess Diana” remixes, showcasing different flavors and influences while maintaining the energetic beat of the original track.

    Chart Data reported that Minaj also extended her record as the female rapper with the most Top 10 hits on the Hot 100 chart. The success of “Princess Diana” solidifies Minaj’s status as a powerhouse in the music industry, breaking records and captivating audiences with her versatile talent.
