According to one festival, we might be listening to some new Nicki Minaj music this summer!
Nicki’s last album Queen, came out in 2018 so fans are ready for a new project from the Queens native. She has been keeping busy this year after announcing her retirement in 2019 to focus on her family. However, this year alone, the Pink Friday creator has dropped two songs with Lil Baby “Do We Have A Problem” and “Bussin” as well as “We Go Up” featuring Brooklyn drill rapper Fivio Foreign. She also is featured on Coi Leray’s “Blick Blick” which came out last month.
A tweet, however, from the Wireless Festival had fans scratching their heads as the festival claimed that the rap icon would be coming out with a new album this summer.
“Brand new album by @NICKIMINAJ soon and a whole lotta BRAND NEW lyrics to memorise….right before the festival,” they tweeted.
The festival had some receipts to back up its claim and ensured that they were not spreading any false information that in fact, Nicki said it herself. A Twitter user asked, “says who,” and the festival responded with a clip from Minaj’s February Late Late Show interview with James Corden and wrote, “The queen herself. Pay attention.”
“Well, I do know it’s soon, and I do know it’s a lot sooner than it’s ever been, right? And I know that it’s coming this year, and I know that it’ll be out before the summertime,” Nicki told Corden.
However, Nicki has not yet officially given a date for her highly anticipated fifth album so we will just have to wait and see.
