Nicki Minaj turned 34 yesterday (December 8th) and decided to celebrate on the warm, tropical Turks and Caicos Islands.

She shared two photos of herself on Instagram sporting a stunning red swimsuit and long black braids. In one photo, she’s lounging on a beach chair in full heels. “Lord, I thank you for another year of life.  #TurksAndCaicos Birthday vibes. Thanks for the 💟u guys. Right back atcha😛” she wrote in the caption.

It looks like her boyfriend Meek Mill was also vacationing with her. He shared a similar picture of Minaj on Instagram, but this time she posed with her heels on the beach. “On a island wit a pretty lil hitta on her bday 🌊 @nickiminaj 🎂😁” he wrote.

Like Lil Wayne, Minaj has had a busy year contributing verses to several big songs. She most recently collaborated with Fetty Wap on his newest track “Like a Star,” and before that teamed up with Ariana Grande, Bebe Rexha, DJ Khaled and others. She’s supposedly working on her follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint, and, given the buzz surrounding when that project will be released, she pranked fans by surprise dropping a fake album, Pick My Fruit Out, in October.
