It’s been four long years since The Pinkprint dropped. Nicki Minaj plans to satisfy her Barbies’ thirst by releasing her fourth studio album this year. The 35-year-old rapper just shared the first two tracks off the LP and they’re both fiyah. Watch out Cardi B, someone’s looking to snatch back the queen of hip-hop crown.
Minaj previously teased to the New York Times that she would be returning back to her roots for her new LP. She wasn’t kidding. “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun Li” finds the “No Frauds” hitmaker heading back to her edgy hip-hop roots, and forgoing glossy pop production. They remind me of early Nicki, circa her mixtape beginnings but grown up. I’m a fan.
Gotta say, Nicki isn’t playing around this era. The artwork for both singles are on point and it appears the music videos will be as well. The teaser for “Barbie Tingz” previews an epic visual is on the way. Check out both singles below, along with the teaser.
