ZPOPMIN key [count]

Removes and returns up to count members with the lowest scores in the sorted set stored at key.

When left unspecified, the default value for count is 1. Specifying a count value that is higher than the sorted set's cardinality will not produce an error. When returning multiple elements, the one with the lowest score will be the first, followed by the elements with greater scores.
