Nicki Minaj Readies New Video, Album

Undoubtedly still high from her double win last night at the 2011 American Music Awards, fashion forward femcee Nicki Minaj is moving forward with the successor to her successful #1 debut album ‘Pink Friday’.

Speaking with Cash Money record label CEO Birdman, Billboard got the latest dish on the diva (whose first new single maybe dropping sooner than you think):

Birdman, via Billboard:

On new album:  “Nicki’s back in the studio, so we’re looking to drop Nicki in the first quarter [early 2012],” he says.

On new album’s first single:  “Maybe this year? I don’t know,” says Birdman. “We’re really thinking it out. But she’s in the studio, and we’re looking real soon, because she’s ready to go and we’re ready to go with her.”


The news follows reports that, following their stageblazing performance of “Turn Me On” at the AMAs, Minaj would be joining super DJ David Guetta for the shooting of a visual to accompanying the cut.  ‘Turn Me On’ is one of two Minaj-assisted tracks listed on the DJ’s ‘Nothing But the Beat’ album.

  9. KEISHA November 21, 2011

    No mam, im not looking forward to hearing her 17 aunts, uncles and cousins inside of her head. It’s really rather boring and confused because i STILL dont know who Onika is because of these imaginery people that overshadow “her”. So NO thanks………..

  10. RDK November 21, 2011

    The Real B(randy) always one of you,that,s why we have a perfect equilibrium..on another note keep doing your thing nicki.

  11. graten8 November 21, 2011

    I dont think we watched the same award show. Her performance and that song wasted 4 minutes of my life…

  12. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. November 21, 2011

  15. yasss November 22, 2011


  16. Nahjee November 22, 2011

    Damn Nicki doing good.. All you gotta do is keep your head up & stay relevant! But ain’t kreayshawn suspose to be tha next runner up??? WTF has she been doing with her white ass… Besides tweeting 24/7 & usteaming smdh. This b**** is irrelevant to tha hip hop worldanyway can’t wait for Nicki album

  17. miroboi November 22, 2011

    ok by #1 debut, it means a her debut album that went number one.

    PINK FRIDAY is onika(here i am, save, right thru me, etc), and her cousins, uncles, and brothers havent made an appearance in any track on that album, except Romans Revenge. So thats prolly in the sophmore. Cuz member she goin’ back to that “spittier” shiz.

    AND 1.6 million in A YEAR is NOT BAD. IDK why ya’ll haitin on that. THOSE #s some pop stars wish they had or have (rihanna, katy, chris). SO whats the deal?

  18. HERE I…FLOPPED November 22, 2011


    lmao at this comment above..but ermmmm I do believe Rihanna and Katy sold more than 1.6 million #JustSaying

  19. Mysterius November 22, 2011

    Nicki’s album sold more than Rihanna on billboard. Remember Rihanna’s came out a week before Nicki’s.

    Rihanna sold more worldwide because she’s been overseas way more than Nicki. Nicki hasn’t been touring and stuff or even been overseas much. rihanna has been going there heavy every since she did those big tours with Chris, several years ago. This is Nicki’s DEBUT. This is Rihanna’s 5th or 6th CD.

    Nicki is the only female rapper doing those numbers.

  20. Mysterius November 22, 2011

    That was too @here I flopped talking about “I do believe “. Nicki’s debut numbers were higher than Rihanna’s and Katy Perry’s too.

  21. Guess What November 22, 2011

    Plz Baby is gonna buy her records like he did with WACK FRIDAY. I’m not impressed with this fraud one bit. Yall can have her. Did you know that she “rehearses” her facial expressions? I got that info from someone who’s very close to the YMCMB camp. What a fraud she is.

  22. Gia November 22, 2011

    I don’t want to hear seven different characters.Not checkin for it.

  23. maria November 22, 2011

    Sorry.Pink Friday was trash.I will not be buying this one.

  24. YOOSONDALOOSE November 22, 2011

    Ohhhh excited! She is really good, and I loved some of Pink Friday!

  25. JoJo November 22, 2011

    If you dont like her dont buy or listen to her music and dont click on her posts . PLAIN AND SIMPLE just dont see why haters who dont like someone go and read peoples post who they dont like and start writting s*** comments SMH

  26. MUSICISME November 22, 2011

    Did they say stage blazing performance? Was we watching the same show? It was as tired as Nickis pink wig…

    Her album was lame, Young Money must buy their album to make them sell so much…

  27. Sleazy November 22, 2011

    Nicki minaj sounded really good I couldn’t believe it she sounded way better than rihanna could ever sound! Look at rihanna recent Xfactor performances Jeez

  28. Mika November 22, 2011

    Can’t wait for the album!! Nicki is getting that paper!!

  29. Mika November 22, 2011

    Why do people have to bring Rihanna name on this post! You’re just mad because she’s a global superstar huh?!? Nicki with get hers hopefully next album!!!

  30. James November 22, 2011

    If it’s just another Pink Friday she can keep it. I bought her debut album, it was the worst female rap album ever

  31. Mika November 22, 2011

    The worst female rap album ever?? Really?? She’s a very versatile artist with an eclectic rapping style..obviously 1.7 million in U.S. and counting enjoy her record. She’s the only female rapper doing it mainstream right now…where are the others??? I didn’t think so!

  32. Liveer November 22, 2011

    Who is kreayshawn??? anyways Good Luck to Nicki i’ll be buying her next album

  33. I’ma have to send her back to her maker November 22, 2011

    Nicki is awesome but that song is complete garbage. I’m disappointed they are making a video to it.

  34. I’ma have to send her back to her maker November 22, 2011

    But I hope this next album goes hard. Pink Friday was an okay album for her first. A little bit more poppier than I expected but I’m glad she’s gotten crossover appeal so now the masses will see where she take her next sophomore album.

  35. RDK November 22, 2011

    I’ma have to send her back to her maker why is it garbage because it,s pop,i like the song i like pop music overall too,it reminds me of this reggae song called,night nurse by gregory isaacs,any ways keep doing you nicki can’t wait to see the video,stay on your hustle ma,i think the sophomore is going to have more did it on em,roman revenge to it though,hope fully the new single off it drops this year/next month as what bird man said…so i,ll wait like everyone else to see whats up.

  36. MISHKA November 22, 2011

    Her performance of “Turn me on” was surprisingly good. She’s getting better and better unlike that other Caribbean lazy a$s singer…

    She needs more songs to headline her own tours so yeah, she better release her sophomore album. Like tomorrow.

  37. Justathought November 22, 2011

    @ ima send her…a nicki fan who is honest with them-self. I can respect that #applaud.

  38. I’ma have to send her to her maker November 22, 2011

    @Rdk I just don’t like the song. I didn’t say it was garbage cuz it was pop. I’m just not feeling it.

  39. QueenSize November 22, 2011

    Oh guys….Let’s get ready for Pink Saturday!!!! Should i p*** in my panties now?

  40. keepinitreal November 22, 2011
