Let the world domination begin, Barbz! Official Charts Company reports that Nicki Minaj‘s second LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ has reached the No. 1 spot on the U.K. album chart. The Young Money empress now holds the record as being the first female rapper to debut atop of the U.K. album tally.

Nicki’s chart achievement follows behind her recent accomplishment of becoming the highest-charting female rapper in the U.K. with ‘Starships,’ which hit No. 1 on the Singles chart a month ago. She beat Missy Elliott, who held the previous record back in 2001 when she reached No. 5 with the song ‘4 My People.’

‘Roman Reloaded’ is expected to premiere at the summit of the Billboard 200 chart this week once the numbers are finally tabulated. According to industry insiders (via MTV), the album will probably sell between 200,000 and 250,000 copies in its first week of release. If that happens, it would give Nicki her first No. 1 album of her career.

Meanwhile, fans are still waiting for Nicki to drop her ‘Starships’ video. The Harajuku Barbie promises the clip will be “very saucy” and “exciting.” This past weekend, she released the bootylicious clip ‘Beez in the Trap‘ (featuring 2 Chainz), which has over 4 million views, so far.

Congratulations to Nicki Minaj on her U.K. chart achievement!
