A new Nicki Minaj album is expected by the end of the year, following her recent record-setting success.
Nicki Minaj may have said she’s retiring soon, but she’s about to drop her fifth album anyway. The rapper dropped hints about the upcoming release during an interview with 93.5 WVVP radio in New York City on Friday (Sept. 13).
The rapper mentioned that her new album is coming soon and is one of the most personal projects she’s ever worked on. “I think you guys are gonna be really excited with what we have coming next, which is my new album. It’s super personal,” Nicki told the radio station. “It’s almost done and I can’t wait for y’all to hear it.”
At this point, the only thing we know for sure about Nicki Minaj’s new album is that it’s coming soon. Although she didn’t provide any sort of release date during her radio interview, she also didn’t indicate that it was still a long way off.
We do know that the album isn’t being rushed, but it will come when it’s ready. Minaj had some creative and personal issues that she needed to deal with prior to moving forward with the project, but now she appears to be back on track.
The cover art for Nicki Minaj’s forthcoming fifth album is expected to be a work by artist George Nicholas. Nicholas’ work has featured on a number of Minaj’s past releases, including “Queen” and “Good Form” from her latest album.
A source close to the project told Billboard that the art for the album is expected to be “very pink” in colour.
Nicki Minaj megastar indicated her long-awaited fifth LP will be released in 2022.
Given what Minaj told the radio station, we should expect to hear a lot from the rapper on her new record. But will she have guest artists on the album?
There’s no way of knowing at this point in time, but Minaj has worked with some very big names in the past. One of her most famous collaborations remains 2010’s “Super Bass” with singer and producer Justin Bieber.
While she’s yet to work with him, Minaj has talked about a long-term collaboration with Drake. There’s also been a lot of hype surrounding a potential collaboration between the rapper and Cardi B.
