‘Thank you to you guys for allowing me to do this on your show. It was something that meant a lot to me,’ the mother-of-one told Cohen, before making the exciting announcement.

Three representatives from Toys for Tots stood behind the Bravo star’s bar, and clapped while the news was announced to the live studio audience.

When asked about his reaction, Toys for Tots’ N.Y.C. coordinator Raul Pillco raved that he was ‘incredibly speechless.’ 

‘It means the absolute world to be able to give back to the New York City community and just for the children across the nation,’ Pillco gushed. ‘So, with somebody with such a superstar status like you, it means the absolute world.’

Her donation comes just weeks after she dropped her fifth studio album, Pink Friday 2, on her 41st birthday. 

Pink Friday 2 is the sequel to Nicki’s debut album Pink Friday, which came out in 2010, and is the rapper’s first album in five years. 

The album has 22 tracks and features artists such as Drake, Lil Wayne, and Future. One of its songs is produced by Finneas, Billie Eilish’s brother. 

Fans of the rapper called ‘Barbz’, short for Barbie, because Nicki often refers to herself as one, flooded Twitter with praise for the album.

Pink Friday 2 follows 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, 2014’s The Pinkprint, and 2018’s Queen, as well as three mixtapes.

In November, Nicki released Pink Friday 2, her ninth fragrance, which was supposed to coincide with the album’s released.
