Nicki Minaj’s new album will be “fierce, fun, and unapologetic.”

The 36-year-old rapper teased fans she is the “most excited” she has been about a record in a “really long time” ahead of her forthcoming release, despite claiming earlier this month she was planning to retire from music.

She said: “It’s probably the most excited I’ve been about an album release in a really long time. I’m happy that we’re not making my fans wait for another album like I’ve done in the past.”

Minaj — whose fourth studio album Queen dropped in 2018, four years after her third record The Pinkprint — has told supporters to look forward to a “way bigger sound” on her new album.

She added to Elle magazine: “This one incorporates all the things people love about Nicki, but it also just has a way bigger sound, so it goes perfectly with the collection.”

It’s not known whether the chat happened before or after Minaj announced her retirement from music less than two weeks ago, revealing she is hanging up her microphone because she wants to start a family with her beau Kenneth Petty. Click here to continue.
