Nicki Minaj hasn’t hinted in any kind of new release in a while, but today, she graced Instagram and Twitter with a set of stunning photos and a mysterious caption that read, “Friday.”
The Pink Friday performer and new momma has been tucked away (hopefully recording music) and her fans, known as the infamous Barbs, have been on social media campaigning for her comeback. Last week, Nicki’s single “LLC,” from her most recent album Queen, reached number 1 on iTunes. This is unusual for an album that was released in 2018, however Nicki’s fandom is unlike most with the exception of a few mega stars.
In the new flicks, Nicki posed with Chanel candies and name plated lights in the background while rocking a high ponytail, pink blinged out crocs, and coordinating sunglasses. Her outfit? Two pink heart shaped pillow because, when you’re Nicki Minaj, do you honestly need anything on to make a statement?
Minaj’s most recent musical offering was a verse on Mike WiLL Made-It’s “What That Speed Bout?!” with YoungBoy Never Broke Again. Her single “Tusa” with Karol G is making major waves, as it is the most streamed women’s collab in Spotify history, beating out Ariana Grande’s “Side to Side,” another song featuring Nicki.
Additionally, Rihanna just followed Nicki on Instagram (and the queen gave her a follow back) so maybe she’ll be wrapping her hiatus up soon too? Probably not, but hey, we can dream, right?
“The Queen Is Back” has been up and down our social media timelines, and we can’t quite guess what could be coming. New music, Queen Radio, a Chanel collab? Whatever it could be, we are ready.
Keep scrolling to see some reactions to see the end of Nicki’s social media hiatus.
