Nicki Minaj is getting into the fragrance game, WWD has announced (via JustJared). Minaj is partnering with Give Back Brands – who recently helped launch Justin Bieber's "Someday" scent – to release a new perfume in department stores this fall.

"I have always been a huge fan of great fragrances," said Minaj. "This is yet another extension of my creative expression and I can't wait to share it with the world. I designed this scent and bottle with my Barbz in mind; I know they will love it!"

Minaj isn't the only one staking her claim in the world of perfume. Last November, Lady Gaga announced a fragrance that will smell like "blood and semen" and is set to debut this year.
