It may just be a really big night for Nicki who is nominated in the fan-voted Billboard Chart Achievement category (presented by Xfinity).
In addition, Nicki made history this past March when she beat Aretha Franklin's previous record for most Billboard Hot 100 hits by a woman. The 34-year-old earned 76 hits while the Queen of Soul's record held strong for nearly 40 years with an impressive 73 chart-toppers.
The cherry on top to all this success may just be the fact that Nicki also recently scored a major modeling contract. Pound the alarm because Nicki is on fire.
