"Anaconda" is a classic from Nicki Minaj. The song's music video has hit the 1 billion views mark as of today.

The video, which is featured on Minaj's 2014 album "The Pinkprint," makes history as being the most viewed video by a female rapper ever.

"Anaconda," the second single off the album, was released in August 2014. The song reached number two in the US Billboard Hot 100.

It also ranked within the top ten in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom.

The song's video was directed by Colin Tilley. It blew up the Internet with its steamy background and chorus of women babbling about their butts, and Minaj said it was exactly what she had in mind.

"I wanted to reinstate something," Minaj told ABC News at the time. "Because of the shift in pop culture, even hip-hop men are really glorifying the less curvy body."



"I wanted to say, 'Hey ladies, you're beautiful,'" she added. "Hopefully, this changes things, and maybe it won't change things, but I love it."

Minaj's milestone comes in the aftermath of high expectations for her next album. All the more so as so much has changed since she released her last album.
