Nicki Minaj Scores First No. 1 Gospel Song With "Blessings" Feat. Tasha Cobbs-Leonard

Nicki Minaj has just made another feat with Pink Friday 2: her first No.1 Gospel song. The chart-topper, “Blessings” featuring Tasha Cobbs-Leonard, reached the top spot on Billboard’s Hot Gospel chart.

“In the Dec. 8-14 tracking week, ‘Blessings’ garnered 3.1 million official U.S. streams,” the outlet reported. “It also sold 3,000 downloads and arrives atop both Gospel Streaming Songs (where its Leonard’s fifth No. 1 and Minaj’s first) and Gospel Digital Song Sales (marking Leonard’s 10th leader and Minaj’s second).”


Cobbs-Leonard and Minaj also collaborated in 2017 on the bellower’s “I’m Getting Ready,” marking Minaj’s first Gospel feature.

Pink Friday 2 has had major success since its debut on Minaj’s birthday (Dec. 8). According to Chart Data, PF2 has broken the record for most songs on the Hot 100 chart at one time by a woman rapper. Minaj’s fifth studio album currently has 17 out of 22 tracks charting including: “Everybody” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, “Needle” with Drake and “FTCU.” Other charting tracks include: “Barbie Dangerous” (No. 58), “Are You Gone Already” (No. 60), “Let Me Calm Down” featuring J. Cole (No. 63), “Beep Beep” (No. 64), “Big Difference” (No. 73) and “RNB” featuring Lil Wayne and Tate Kobang (No. 80). PF2 singles “Super Freaky Girl” peaked at No. 1 last year, “Red Ruby da Sleeze” at No. 13 and “Last Time I Saw You” at No. 23.

Minaj also broke one her inspiration’s records, as she recently surpassed Foxy Brown for most No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200 by a woman rapper. Minaj now has three. “Umm sir! Only Nic could break tha king[‘s] record,” Foxy wrote in support of her “twin” while alluding to tying with the Queens MC next year, “3rd #1 record dropping 2024.” In another post, Ingavelli wrote, “Hella proud. 26 year record is brazy tho. Y’all mean to tell me no bi**h broke that sh*t in my absence! Took twin to set tha bar again!”


In response to all of the support that Pink Friday 2 has received, Minaj took to Instagram to say, “Thank you to everyone who helped on this album in any way. And of course, Thank you for listening.”
