Nicki Minaj Begins Work On Third Studio Album / TGJ Weighs In

Published: Monday 11th Mar 2013 by David

With 1.5 million units sold worldwide and over 18 million singles sold worldwide, it’s with a heavy heart many a Nicki Minaj fan accepts that the ‘Roman Reloaded‘ era is now over.

However, they won’t have to wait too long before getting their hands on its follow up. For, via her personal Twitter account, she has confirmed she has returned to the studio to craft it.

Details below…

Confirmation of her studio return comes less than a year after the release of ‘Reloaded’ which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, birthing the Gold single ‘Beez In The Trap’, the Quadruple Platinum single ‘Starships‘ and the UK dance smash, ‘Pound The Alarm‘.

While we’re hoping this album sees the return of Minaj the storyteller, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t looking forward to any new material from the ‘American Idol‘ judge.ย 

Well…just as long as this new material comes without a thousand lines reminding ‘b*tches’ that they’re her sons, marks the return of Barbie and digs far deeper into Roman’s character and sexuality.

Oh, and cuts akin to this little gem…

Your thoughts?ย

  3. Travis March 11, 2013

    The PF:RR era is not completely over yet.. High School is the next single and is getting a video treatment. Don’t be so quick to say it’s over. She’s still going with The Re-Up.

    • KimmyBlancoDeLaFamilia March 11, 2013

      What for? It flopped.

  6. Ken March 11, 2013

    I’m so ready for the “Pink Print” era.

  7. BeyWhoUWanna March 11, 2013

    Queen Onika!I want this album to give me 2010 teas tbh. Go back to the pink wigs and crazy voices mama. You know we can’t get enough.

  8. TaylorWins March 11, 2013

    If she gives me bars like she did in HGM or Creep i’ll start using her again.

  9. Mariah Carey mothered you h***… March 11, 2013

    She’s on her 14th minute of fame. Sorry barb she’s finally run out of gimmicks. #poordat

    • QueenCeline March 11, 2013

      14th minute of fame when she came out in 2007? That’s pathetic even for you dear.

      • DeezNuts March 11, 2013

        They been talking about her 15 mins before her debut album dropped…2 platinum albums later….two 4x platinum singles later…

    • PinkPussyBarbie March 11, 2013

      But it’s been six years though sis.

  10. Ken March 11, 2013

    After High School gets the single treatment. She’s moving right into the Pink Print.

  11. Mariah Carey mothered you h***… March 11, 2013

    This era was almost not existent. I don’t even remember one single off her album

    • Kandi Kuntz March 11, 2013

      Where is Mariah’s new single though? humm

    • DeezNuts March 11, 2013

      Oh..you dont remember Starships? lmfao STOP IT!

      Do you remember Triumphant? lmfao

  12. DeezNuts March 11, 2013

    My body is ready for this new album/material!

  13. FAF March 11, 2013

    Y’all dont even respond to the MC girl, she obviously trolling.. & I’m not gonna do it today w/ them…

    Anyway, can’t wait for ‘The PinkPrint’ !!!

  14. Ken March 11, 2013

    Okay, so now it’s been confirmed via Twitter that she’s she shooting a video today which is most likely (High School) AND another video tomorrow. I wonder which song she’s shooting for tomorrow. Which ever it may be I’m hoping she puts time and effort into creating quality masterpieces with these videos.

    • FAF March 11, 2013

      I thought Marilyn Monroe was final single off PFRR? It could be a feature, though…

      • Ken March 11, 2013

        I didn’t hear anything about that. From the RE-UP HS is the last single. But your right second video could be a feature. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • lily March 11, 2013

      it’s for Biedman’s new single “Tap Out”

  15. FAF March 11, 2013

    She needs 3 things: A song w/ 2 chains (hood), A song w/ Kanye (depth) and a song w/ Drake (young men) & she will be good & get a grammy ๐Ÿ™‚

    • DeezNuts March 11, 2013

      Naw…she already has songs with them. I say Kendrick Lamar (depth&young men), Lauryn (buzz), Beyonce (swag).

      • FAF March 11, 2013

        But If she collabs w/ Beyonce, I want it to be on Beyonce’s album or on Watch the Throne 2, beyonce seldom does features for other artists, so I dont see that happening. Kendrick would be nice, though.. I can see Nicki getting Lauryn as a sample, I doubt a feature

      • msteefromdc March 12, 2013

        whoever is on it..it won’t get her that grammy she so desperately wants..let it go..her career is pretty much over with..she started too late..she’s 30..she needs to have several seats..have some babies or something.

  16. ShadeNoShade March 11, 2013

    Here Come The Ppl That Said She Flopped. LMFAOOOOOO BYE! Anyway I Rather Her Put Out A Mixtape & Put Out An Album In 2014.

  17. Boom March 11, 2013

    Everyone can say what they want too about Nicki Minaj, but her success can never be demeaned. Nicki is in the process of being one of the most successful artist too ever come from hip-hop, examples being Endorsement’s (Pepsi, Mac, Opi ect..) American Idol, Record Sales ( Two #1albums, World Wide Multiplatinum Hit’s, Over 150 features ect..).
    So you can continue to be delusional & think that Nicki’s time is up all you want, but everyone else who’s living in reality knows that her third album is about too top her previous 2!

    P.s – I just wanted too add that the great legend Lil’ Kim doesn’t own 100% of her name, she’s suing someone to get the other 44% back. So Call Nicki a flop all you want, but she owns 100% of her name ( Plus Pink Friday’s Brand Name).

  18. PEACE OF WEAVE March 11, 2013

    CHILE AINT NOBODY CHECKING FOR THE PINK FLOP
    THIS H** REALLY WANTS TO COMPETE WITH LIL KIM BUT THIS DRAG QUEEN DOESNT KNOW THAT HER TIME WAS UP ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO
    I GUESS WHEN YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT GETTING HOT FOR 1 SUMMER, THAT WAS YOU NICKY

    • FAF March 11, 2013

      Compete with Lil Krim? LMAOOO Lil kim last album didn’t go gold, her last single FLOPPED and she hasn’t had a world tour solo EVER ! Sit yo old ass downE, f***

    • DeezNuts March 11, 2013

      The tears that are streaming down my face! lmfao

      The fact that you think Kimber Lee San is competition is..!!!!!! ๐Ÿ™ Has Paypal sent her any plaques for her record sells yet? hahah

      • Petre March 12, 2013

        “Kimber Lee San” killed me!! *TEARS*

  19. Mooriah March 11, 2013

    Hello my name is nicki and i have a confession to make. i have a wonderful hobby of herding cows. i especially have a favorite plumb cow which i have named Mooriah. This big cow enjoys grazing with the others of the herd, however its not like your typical ordinary cow. Mooriah is obsessed and addicted to beef burgers, particularly McDonald cheese burgers. she is always moowing for more, she can literally chow down on 50 burgers at a sitting or standing.

    i fear for the rest of my herd, i fear Mooriah will bring back the mad cow disease.

    what should i do???

  24. DeezNuts March 11, 2013

    DEAD AT ALL THESE NICKY STANS TRYING TO COME FOR LIL KIM AND HOW SHE LOOKS
    ID RATHER LOOK LIKE LIL KIM THAN LOOK LIKE AN ELEPHANT IN DRAAAG CHILE
    NO WONDER EVERYONE WANTS QUEEN MARIAH TO BE THE ONLY FEMALE ON THE PANEL

    • DeezNuts March 11, 2013

      VH1’s 100 Sexiest Artists List 2013:
      Nicki Minaj #11.

      Sorry Krim didnt make the list this time. HAHAHHAH! ๐Ÿ™

      • cassey March 11, 2013

        @DEEZNUTS lilkim is 77 on dat list BOO BOO! check again…

      • #twitterwars March 12, 2013

        @DEEZNUTS & @CASSEY. kim actually is on the list.. Notice the shade though. They wrote “In the 90’s” and they don’t even use a recent picture of her. They used a pic of her when she use to look good.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (SUPERIOR DIVA) March 11, 2013

      LOL.. Yes Hun.
      Thes Garbaj stans are doing the absolute most these days.
      The blow up dolls of all people should be respectful to the ones who paved the way for their fave.

      • FAF March 11, 2013

        Kim is 77 and Nicki is 11 what is that saying ????????????????

        Nicki > Kim .

  26. STR8FACTS March 11, 2013

    I’m not even here to bash her, all I ask is that when this new album drops she focuses more on the music rather than making a pop album to please the masses. I wasn’t here for RR or The Re-Up or her for that matter since that album dropped last April. I want to see that Nicki Minaj I fell in love with in 2007 when nobody knew who she was, killing those mix-tapes like a dude over sick ass beats. She can do it, that’s why it makes people mad to hear her doing s*** like starships, she can do so much better than that. Nicki I need the old you back!

    • Trina March 11, 2013

      Nobody was here for roman reloaded or the re up that’s why it hasn’t sold a millio

      • nicko March 11, 2013

        B**** PLEASE!! PFRR sold 1.6M WW and is the best selling hip hop album of 2012 but as a Trina fan you don’t even have the right to talk about album sales !!!

  27. Suicide Blonde March 11, 2013

    Another album, Gosh i guess we still will have more shitt**music for the past 2 years.

  28. Trina March 11, 2013

    This b**** has had the most videos for a tired ass flop era than anyone i know… reminds ME of beyonce 4 era just a MESS!!!! thank god this s***** era is coming to n end

  29. Trina March 11, 2013

    Why hasn’t Roman reloaded & its re release sold a million yet in the US Its been a year

    • DeezNUts March 11, 2013

      The same reason that no rap album in 2012 sold more than a million in the US.

      The same reason Nicki had the highest selling rap album in 2012 in the US and in the World. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • FAF March 11, 2013

        & It hasn’t been a yr ๐Ÿ™‚

        Nice try, though, sis!

  30. King B>Rihanna March 11, 2013

    Please Dear Old Nicki Minaj come back.

    Queen Nicki ๐Ÿ™‚ LOVE YOU ! Im ready for the Pink Print ERA !!!! YAAAAY

  34. Nick March 11, 2013

    I like the RE-UP songs, I think she should do videos for them all –

  35. Kayla March 11, 2013

    I Think Pink Friday: The Pinkprint will be Pink Friday 2…and I Think This Is The Album Where We Get the Full On Roman Character and I Think She’s Gonna Introduce His Dad, Saint James Paul III…but lemme to not giving a f*** about my stanning and hope that on this album, she focues more or what gave her postion she’s in and not by what she think will sell because of the single people by…cause no lie, that half hip-hop, half pop s*** on RR killed meeee….she can make the tracking list like Pink Friday…mopstly rap and a few pop…and lemme be real again, i hope she comes back with the metaphors…cause it seems like now all she does is brag…not really roast..like “you wanna sleep on me, overnight..im the mutha f****** boss, overwrite..and when i pull up, vroom, motorbike..now all these b****** getting buck, overbite” as opposed to “why thesee bums so mad the the queen on idol huh..” it’s like, MEEEETTTTAAAAPPPHHHHOOORRRRS! But I Love And Ride For Nicki No Matter What..

    • msteefromdc March 12, 2013

      gosh all these different personalities…that bytch need some zanax

  36. NOBITCHASSNESS March 11, 2013

    She knows what she’s doing.

    PFRR had such a wide spread of genres which somehow didn’t reach everyone BUT I’m sure The Pink Print will be BIGGER and BETTER!

  37. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. March 11, 2013

    FLOP FLOP FLOP

    This H** STRUGGLED with Roman FLOPloaded lmaooooooooooo she tried to go POP but cant compete with the pop gworls ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Queen Rih’s Unapologetic has been 4 months & it has already outsold Roman FLOPloaded which has been out nearly a year FLOP FLOP FLOP

    Only 1.5 million ww lmaooo

    The H** is DONE ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜›

  38. YouMad? March 11, 2013

    her sales are so lackluster…all her album sales and singles sales combined, Mariah did with 1 album… ouch

  39. JER March 12, 2013

    I really admire Onika Maraj. I think the way she doesn’t care what others think is so powerful. She doesn’t care how many singles and videos she releases. They can all flop and she doesn’t care. She doesn’t care if anyone is checking for her yet she just keeps putting out music. Bravo! I really respect her hustle. It takes a lot of guts to keep going and releasing music when nobody is listening.

  40. . : : h 2 o : : . March 12, 2013

    Onika Maraj, please retire ๐Ÿ˜ก

  41. trinafan98 March 18, 2013

    Nicki fan’s are cray…… Literally. She will never be able to sell another platnium album like her first one. Her first one good. Her second flopped, and the re up should have been a re do… She has lost her real hip hop fans and went to catering to 8 and 9 year olds. As far as rap….. You can throw her in the trash bag. She is NOT rap. She stole lil kim’s swagg, she tried to be like lady gaga, now she’s trying to be MC. Like who are you N. Minaj. Your fake your a clone no one will ever ” know ” the real you. All your albums have declined as they dorpped. And American Idol is at it’s lowest ratings because of you. Your no we’re near REAL female rappers such as…. Lil Kim, Trina, Eve, Missy Elliot, Lauren Hill, Foxy Brown, Mc Lyte These female rappers are real female rappers and rep the game! Trina been in this game for 15 years and STILL making music…… And she can come and go as please cause she keeps it REAL with herself and her fans ( Me ) ! You could never be compared to them. Your wack….. And the world is noticing it.!!! She’s plastic all injected up and the hood doesn’t respect her! Let her come to a hood and rep for REAL b****** I bet she get that a** whooped! Realshit!
