Four years after turning the charts bright pink with her ‘Friday’ debut, today saw Nicki Minaj shoot the first video to be pulled from her third studio album…months before its hotly anticipated release date.

How she announced the news to her fans?

Full story below…

With her take on PTAF‘s ‘Boss Ass B*tch‘ making waves on Urban radio, Minaj took to Twitter this afternoon to share the following message:

Then, in a move the rest of her fan base now find themselves faking him for Twitter user ‘Skylar Maraj‘ made the following request:

Minutes later, the ‘Last Chance’ lyricist did just that, confirming the launch of the forthcoming era and its first supporting music video!

Exciting times!

Sure to mark one of the year’s biggest releases, there’s no doubt the hype around Minaj‘s third studio album will ignite a ‘B’Day‘-esque media storm once its release date is unveiled.

However, while her numbers are sure to keep the big wigs over at Universal happy, we’re more eager to hear how the success of her debut and the heat surrounding its follow-up have shaped her sound.

For, while it’d make ‘sense’ for Minaj to abandon Pop for ‘Hip Hop cred’ purposes, the fact remains that she is a very welcome voice on a number of radio formats.

This, a luxury few acts can say they enjoy and one she’d be foolish not to take into consideration when crafting jams for the release. Indeed, though a ‘Starships’-sounding launch single isn’t the answer, ‘Pink Friday’s success lay in its marriage of Pop, Hip Hop & R&B, birthing hits that sat just as well on ‘KIIS FM‘ as they did ‘Hot 97.’

So, how can Minaj create cuts to appease Sophia and Sharkeisha alike? ‘Get Like Me’ flavoured flows packing short, palatable and easily ‘coverable‘ lines that see her ditch the ‘million words a minute’ approach taken in ‘The Boys’, and reintroduce the cool and feminine ‘New Yoik’ sass found in Getting Paid.’

…a Hip Hop Fran Drescher if you will.

    Omg rhi rhi and Shakira are slaying YouTube. 17 million views in 24hrs. The people calling this song a flop will eat their words lol

  20. Godnika Teaks January 31, 2014

    Make sure your wigs and lace-fronts are glued down girls, the queen is coming.

  21. Godnika Teas January 31, 2014

    Iggy,Angel Haze and Azealia Banks might as well push their albums back to next year, The queen is coming with a New Mix tape and album this year.

  22. Molly January 31, 2014

    I wonder if her v***** is as stretched out as those legs in that pic.

  23. LTM January 31, 2014

    She’ll have a big first week and then fall hard like Roman Reloaded did but worse. Careers based off pure gimmicks tend to be quick. She tried to out do Gaga and it burned her out. Didn’t help that the music she put out was garbage.

  24. LTM January 31, 2014

    @Flopnika Teas
    Angel already released her album it is better than anything Nicki has ever put out. I’m sure Iggy’s will be better too. I got nothing for Azealia, she fell off 2 years ago.

  25. Iconic cici January 31, 2014

    @LTM dont you stan for Katy what do you know about rap music?

    Nicki im not her for your recycled raps spitting ass.

  26. rih rox((U Mad Bro?)) January 31, 2014

    Photoshop gone wrong.

  27. Iconic cici January 31, 2014

    People are really checking for this joke? smh so sad female rap is really at a f****** low.

  28. Godnika Teas February 1, 2014

    Lol the queen already has the lessors bums mad. Nicki’s least selling album sill sold more then your flop favs last album u Mad? @Molly aka Iconic Cici? … It’s okay babies. beat those keyboards, yass!

  29. Rosie February 1, 2014

    Why is that Icki stan always checking for me? Born To Die already outsold Roman Retarded in the US with little promo and no real hit (except for a remix sent out by Interscope) and is still top 50 after two years, not to mention outsold it’s entire discography worldwide, stay mad that no one remembers Icki and that she can no longer chart anywhere, not even iTunes, without 104842 features.

  30. One and only February 1, 2014

    SIGH..at a C FLOP fan calling other artist flops..the irony..LOL

  31. cierror February 1, 2014

    No one’s really checking for her after she duped her fans with that pathetic singing and EDM music trash (see Whip It,Starships, Pound the Alarm), boring ballads (Marilyn Monroe, Beautiful Sinner, Fire Burns) and weak hip-hop songs (S** in the lounge, I am your leader). The majority of the album was forgettable, I hope for some Kill Da DJ, Itty Bitty Piggy, Letcha Go, and Sweetest girl songs with some Moment for life and Your Love type of songs as well.

  32. ASBEENISH February 1, 2014

    @SERFBORT but one directions video slayed that and so did Justin Bieber’s. They will be flying up the charts not riri and shitkira

  33. ,. February 1, 2014

  34. Slay_hive February 1, 2014

  35. bossbey93 February 1, 2014
