Jingle Ball Taps Nicki Minaj, SZA, And Many More

SZA is coming off of yet another impressive chart achievement in a year packed full of commercial successes. She teamed up with Drake for a new single "Slime You Out" which rocketed up the charts. It debuted at the very top spot on the Hot 100, marking Drake's 12th number one. But it was also a big accomplishment for SZA who became the first artist to top the chart twice this year following her song "Kill Bill" reaching number one back in March.

By the time Jingle Ball is underway, Nicki Minaj fans will have their hands on her new album. Pink Friday 2 is due to arrive on November 17th marking Nicki's first new studio album in 5 years.
