The Queen is back!
Nicki Minaj has been away from the public eye for the better part of the year, from enjoying married life, motherhood, and dealing with the unfortunate and unexpected loss of her father. Clearly, taking a well-deserved break after consistently releasing music for over the last decade.
Radiating in melanin with pink undertones surrounding her, Nicki would be captured holding two pink toned heart-shaped pillows, posing in hot pink crocs, whilst in her real-life Barbie office with Chanel décor in the background and iced out jewelry to compliment the imagery.
On the Instagram post, the Hip-Hop superstar alluded to an unveil of something come Friday (May 14th). Many speculate that it’s brand-new music, while others are just excited that Nicki posted something since January.
It has been almost three years since the release of her last effort, Queen (which is currently certified platinum by RIAA), however, Nicki continued to project catchy yet lyrical punchlines on collaborative tracks last year and continued to dominate the chart in different genres as well. Pop star Meghan Trainor made a crossover when she had Nicki featured on her single “Nice to Meet Ya,” whilst Doja Cat and ASAP Ferg both acquired summer anthems with Nicki as a featured artist.
Needless to say, the fans are excited for Nicki’s return! Tell us your thoughts after the jump.
