Nicki Minaj is set to paint Saturday Night Live a potent shade of pink, because she’s bringing her comeback campaign to the show’s season finale.
Full story below…
The rapper, who returned with two singles (‘Chun-Li’ and ‘Barbie Tingz’) last week, will serve as the musical guest on the May 19th episode of the long-running NBC hit. Tina Fey hosts.
It goes without saying that the slot is a sizeable one and, in securing it, represents quite the coup for Nicki.
Given that it’s a month away, could it possibly serve as a hint as to when her long-awaited fourth album is due? ‘SNL’ remains one of the most potent promotional platforms available, so it would be a smart step. Just ask Cardi B, who used it to great effect (see: announcing her pregnancy and plugging her album).
In any case, exciting times!
