Nicki Minaj On New Album: “You’ll Never Know When It’s Coming…Until It Comes”

Published: Thursday 13th Feb 2014 by Sam

{Images Removed As Requested}

Nicki Minaj sent the net into a frantic frenzy last night when she dropped new song and video ‘Lookin Ass N*gga’ like an atomic bomb.

With both the track and its accompanying cover causing controversy in earnest, the Young Money maven phoned in to The Angie Martinez Show on HOT 97 to discuss her return to the scene.

Honing in on the fever-pitch anticipation for Minaj’s new album ‘The Pink Print’, Martinez also quizzed the rapper on when fans can expect to hear the project.

Check out the femcee’s stealth-friendly answer below…

Regardless of whether Onika is planning a roll-out akin to Beyonce’s, it’s clear she’s embraced the power of “shock value” – as evidenced by yesterday’s surprise delivery. We’d love to see her continue this pattern to ensure every move she makes is an “event”.

    I think Nicki a smart bish.
    What I would do if I was her is drop a hot official single & video then release album 2-4 weeks after it.

    Buzzed then stirred & public prepared to buy & then she get’s her FULL 1st week billboard charting.

    David Bowie released one song and one video on the day of announcement. Beyonce who released an entire album with videos to match the entire album. There is no comparison. Beyonce did it better.

    Beyoncé, her impact.
    If she does pull that s*** it will sell less than 100K first week unless it is released on a Monday/Tuesday.

    Like how she put it out there in the water so it has us thinking WHEN IS IT COMING??

    She can do a remixed version of what Bey has done but not the exact same blueprint.
    Plus it won’t be classed “a visual album” so she got to make sure strategy gives her time for a single just before or immediately after album drops

    It’s like these b****** have no shame when it comes to copying Beyonce. They don’t even try to play it off.

    First they all go dying their hair blonde. . then they copy her sound, now they want to drop albums like her.

    Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic.

    That’s cute for her though.

  23. Theman February 13, 2014

    She isn’t Beyonce, what she should do is randomly drop a single/video, and set a date for her album. Last go around she allowed the hype to get to her head. Heck a lot Bey fans wanted the albumin their hands, but got it the only way it was available at first.. She needs an authentic setup..

    I think Bey set a new trend. But umm.. cant wair for the 3rd album i KNOW its gonna slay. Nicki created such a huge buzz with LAN. EVRYONE IS TALKIN ABOUT THE SONG. She been trending in the US all day, she was trending WW yesterday, the video already has 6M views on WSHH (jusr one day) n the UNOFFICIAL video on youtube already has 1M views. Every blog is talkin about it. N some radio stations r ALREADY playing the song. Like Nicki said “this is not a song but a CONVERSATION”. Nicki never fails to impress me. I didnt know she was STILL able to create such a HUGE buzz. SLAYYY NIC . PS: Even tho this song is not a single, she shouldve put it on itunes, it wouldve done well imo.

    @rosie dummy the song is not even available for perches on itunes. it was a free song released for the fans and the internet to build buzz. you have to wait for the official first single since you’re so eager and worried about her itunes charting. you under cover stans i tell ya.

    @Rosie while Mariah remains unbothered with over 100,000,000 records sold in the US alone. So hypocritical of you to say Mariah was buying her own singles when people were also saying your fave (Bey) was buying her own album. DIL was only in ITunes top ten for a little over a day and is already falling down Billboard hot 100. Stop coming for Mariah & worry about your fave. It’s like you’re begging for a Stan war with the lambs. Let’s wait and see how Lana and Bey sell @ 43.

    At age 32 Beyonce had the highest grossing tour and best selling album of the year, both of which she sold off her name alone. Lol she’ll be fine when she’s 43. What’s odd, though, is how hard a woman who sold 200+million albums, had 18 #1s and is a “living legend ” would flop if she ever attempted to do what Beyonce did.

  55. Mark111 February 13, 2014

    Only a few will be able to do what Bey did and sale. Hip Hop’s top dogs can, cause let’s be real, nothing is more hyped than a rap album for a few weeks. Nicki may, but the thing is she has to hint that an album is coming Vs just dropping it out the blue like Beyonce did.

    Yeezus taught these h*** first even before the Camel lover dropped her album with no marketing even doe it sucked. Niki starting to look like a 45 year old Latina with her fake long asz hair and thick old thighs. Them buck teeth of hers can scrap my meat anytime.

    Out of all of beyonce current peers none have the star power she has right now to pull just randomly dropping an album, it could end up being career suicide for some of these artists, beyonce did it coming outta of a ‘flop’ album were people had written her of as someone who was flopping music wise. But somehow i think nicki is arrogant enough to attempt doing something similar to what bey did

  58. Rosie February 14, 2014
    +0

    It’s obvious Bey doesn’t give a s*** about single sales at this point, especially when her album went platinum in like a few days and she has an 86 on Metacritic. She’s not like Mooriah who released 4 lead singles and pushed back her album 728 times just because none of them were a big hit. My faves would never. All 3 of Lana’s US singles released before Paradise (incl. the two BTD singles) flopped to hell and back but did that keep her from releasing, and on Black Friday with so much competition? No. Even #Beautiful was a decent sized hit in the States. If Moo and her team really cared about the music and the fans the album would’ve been released last summer, as it was supposed to be.
    And kii @ how You’re Mine is plummeting down iTunes. A Tamar Braxton tea.

    The queen is NOT dumb
    1) Beyonce wasn’t the first person to do what she did, research it huns. It made hell of an impact, BUT, She wasn’t the first…
    2) I got a feeling Nicki is gonna do something like give a release date a couple days before it’s released…like if it was March 3rd she’d be like “Pick up ‘The Pink Print’ on March 6th! In stores…” type s***…. But. Point Being, if it’s material is ANYTHING like the s*** she did on LAN, then, #ThePinkPrint will slay livvvess, Just like Pink Friday, Roman Reloaded and not too much of The Re-Up but i still love it…

    Between this fake ass R. Kelly and fake as r***** dunk known ass Nick I Minaji I cannot believe for black history they beef. Black man vs black women. Keep it classy and show respect. Today’s music is of the devil because he was the angel of music. I’m black and I have respect for me and my heritage like some of you. This music is tasteless. Stand Up Nas, Mos def, Lauren hill and help teach these clown ass fools about black pride. Women people hear this they think all blacks feed into this. Newsflash, we don’t! !
