Hot Shot: Nicki Minaj Hits Studio With Pharrell Williams For New Album

Published: Saturday 17th Aug 2013 by Sam

New music alert!

Nicki Minaj is wasting no time cooking up her third studio album. Indeed, since from wrapping up a controversial stint on American Idol and closing the campaign for latest project ‘The Re Up’ , the Young Money major has turned her attention to next LP.

Taking to Twitter today, hitmaker Pharrell Williams shared the above shot of himself and Minaj in the studio working on the as yet untitled set.

Currently riding high on the charts courtesy of production + guest slots Daft Punk’s ‘Get Lucky’ and Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’, it’ll be uber interesting to what the Neptunes star has cooked up for Onika. Especially in light of the femcee’s declaration that this record will move away from the candy-coated Pop and instead re-embrace the “harder” Hip-Hop sound that defined “mixtape Nicki”.

We’re excited…are you?

    So now everyone is jumping on the Pharell bandwagon. Get that paper Pharell but there is a reason why you’re better than Because you don’t make trash.

    Pharrell was the s*** in the early 90s, glad he pretty much re-invented himself and found his way back into today’s music market. So now everybody will be jumping on his bandwagon, thanks to Mr. Thicke

    • SMH August 17, 2013

      This guy has always been in demand. How the hell old are you guys? What you’re hearing now is his signature sound, that has never changed!

      • FAF August 17, 2013

        ^go see my first post..these b****** are novices ๐Ÿ˜†

        They know nothing about music or hiphop pharrell even produced Wreckx N Effect ๐Ÿ˜† It doesn’t get much OLDER than that

        Snoops “Beautiful” & “Drop it like its hot”, Majority of “Hard Candy”

        the list goes on & on….

  4. Barb B**** August 17, 2013

    A match made in heaven

  5. JER August 17, 2013

    And Onika stays riding trends. Not everyone paying Pharrel dust since ’08 and suddenly everyone wants a piece. Madonna- Hard Candy: its influence.

    • SMH August 17, 2013

      Says who? He didn’t even start producing records solo until 2006! He is one half of The Neptunes (Pharrell and Chad Hugo) and they are still active. So how could an album, even her own fans didn’t like influence something that was already happening?

      You guys never know what you’re talking about.

  6. opd2 August 17, 2013

    can’t wait.

  7. FAF August 17, 2013

  9. bolo August 17, 2013

    ya’ll still donโ€™t get that H20 and Pop Royalty are the same f**?! the same writing style and use of smiley faces. plus the same two faced b*******. so obvious.

  10. RealMusic August 17, 2013

    I’m so over her now everybody wants to run to him for a hit it dose not happen with everybody just saying I will like nicki if she would not make it all about her like their should be enough room for more than one female rapper

    • Your fave is a FLOP August 17, 2013

      You want her reign to let up? When one female is THAT good and can do what Nicki couldn’t/can’t that’s when there will be more room.

  11. Daniel Teflon August 17, 2013

    Well I’ll continue to buy Tricki Garbagh albums on Amazon there always very cheap.. Will Have Re-Up on the 20’th of August a Wopping $2.40 cent WHAT A DEAL~ not into Bubble Gum Pop BULLSHYT!! But I like a Few beats she uses..

  12. THE GREAT LACEFRONCE. August 17, 2013

    O n I g g e r is hoping that Pharrell will revive her dead career after seeing Robin’s success!

    Pink Print will flop just like Roman STRUGGLE loaded..has it sold one million copies in the US yet???? ๐Ÿ™‚ ) ) lol at its ww sales of 1.7 million…LOCAL H**. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • FAF August 17, 2013

      * DEATH in multiples *

      ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜†

  13. The Boy Toy August 17, 2013

    Awe that’s cute for her!

  14. Slayty Perry (ROAR) August 17, 2013

    Doesn’t she realize that everyone is over her? How did High School fail to pass 300k in the US with all that promo? Iggy’s work nearly sold that in the UK with less promo. Her time is up. This album will flop harder than Roman Reloaded.

    • FAF August 17, 2013

      Clear Channel, Anyone?

      and Teenage dream had 5 #1s and a re-release RE-up outsold the 33k lets not forget KIII !

      still did only 2mil in the us, nicki’s debut did that & she was a new artist

  15. FAF August 17, 2013

    I will read every Rishitta fan to smitherines in this post.. ๐Ÿ˜† @ LOCAL when the only way FLOPshitta can sell is when she discounts albums

    she should get like Ci & do a box set on groupon ๐Ÿ˜†

    atleast Ciara still owns her publishing, Rihanna gets owned like the 360 slave she is

    KINGnika better snatch Rishitta by her jheri curl wig ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜† ;lol:

  16. Beyond Amazing (Cause Bey really is!) August 17, 2013

    Why is my baby wasting his time with this stank ass flop?

    • opd2 August 18, 2013

      piece of sh-t,pharrel wouldn’t even touch you with a 50 foot poll,you f-cking thirsty b-tch,you have the gal to dis nicki,get you leaking @ss out of here.

  17. Jess August 18, 2013
