Nicki Minaj

Album: TBA
Release Date: TBA
Nicki Minaj is coming up on three years since she released her third and most recent full-length album, The Pinkprint, but it hardly feels like she has taken a break given the many tracks released in the interim. After two years of her adapting her style to songs by artists like Madonna, Ariana Grande and DNCE, she finally released her first solo singles since her last LP, partially responding to a feud with fellow rapper Remy Ma but also teaming up with her friends Drake and Lil Wayne for both ferocious ("No Frauds") and vulnerable ("Regret in Your Tears") tracks. She's remained mostly silent on her fourth album, not offering more than just confirmation that she has been in the studio. "I know it's going to be my best body of work," she told DJ Whoo Kid. "That's next on my bucket list: to deliver my fourth album and make sure it's a classic hip-hop album that people will never forget."
