For starters, she revealed, the title of the record is going to be “super, super iconic.” And, “Sonically, I know what the album’s about to sound like. I know what this album is gonna mean to my fans. This album is everything in my life coming full circle and me being truly, genuinely happy. It feels almost like a celebration.”
Minaj’s last album, The Pinkprint, gave us such megahits as “Anaconda,” “Feeling Myself,” and “Only,” and went double platinum.
“The last album was almost like my diary,” she continued. “Closing the chapter on certain things and not knowing if I was happy or sad about beginning new chapters. I was really writing about feeling unsure. Now, I can tell you guys what happened for the last two years of my life. I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.”
While there’s as yet no release date, more from Minaj is assuredly on the way. And while you wait, it wouldn’t hurt to revisit this little number.
