Just 24 hours earlier, Minaj teased a “virtual celebration” for the landmark release.
Pink Friday was the moment Minaj became a star. Her debut album initially dropped Nov. 22, 2010, spawned several hits and and climbed all the way to No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
The groundbreaking set also logged six weeks at No. 1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart in 2011, tying for the longest reign at the top by a female rap act (Minaj has since broken that record).
Pink Friday also snagged three Grammy Award nominations and claimed rap album of the year at the American Music Awards.
