Nicki Minaj has deleted her Twitter account on Saturday following a dispute with some of her followers, MTV News reports. The rapper was furious with the Minaj fan site NickiDaily.com for posting snippets from her new album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, claiming that they were "leaking" her music. Minaj blasted the site on Twitter, and then tweeted "Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good fucking bye" before deactivating her account.

NickiDaily.com has since shut down, with the owners stripping all content from the site aside from a loop of the rapper's song "Dear Old Nicki," in which she raps to her younger self. As can be expected, Minaj's legion of fans – known as Barbies – were distraught about her leaving the social media platform. The rapper has 30 days to reconsider leaving the site before the account is deactivated permanently.

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
