Nicki Minaj to Announce New Album in September

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj has kept her guest features to a minimum since the release of her platinum debut Pink Friday, but she’s got a timeline in place for its follow-up. The Harajuku Barbie explained that her Barbz will get an announcement regarding the sophomore effort by September, with the album set to drop within the next 12 months.

“You’ll get another album within 12 months,” she told KIIS FM’s JoJo. “You’ll get the announcement for the next album in—and I’m saying the announcement—that you’ll get the announcement in September. That’s all.”

But for now she’ll stay busy promoting her new single “Super Bass” and its video, set to arrive in the next week. Videos for “Did It On’em” and “Fly,” her collaboration with Rihanna, have also been shot.

After her “I Am Still Music” tour with Lil Wayne winds down this month, fans can catch her opening for Britney Spears on the “Femme Fatale” tour, kicking off on June 17.

    @Eddy, FOXY is a great disappointment from her poor quality of music to un-lady like behavior. She need some self healing as a person first.

    @Eddy, Yes U Should Forget About Kim Cause Nobody Likes Her. And Look At Kim While Nicki Is Doing Her Thing Kim Is Still Trying To Start A Beef And Nicki Is Just Ingoring Her I Don’t Blame Her If I Was Her I Would Do The Same Thing. And Kim Fame Is Going So Down Her Albums Don’t Sell In Stores Nomore That’s Why When She Be Dising Nicki Minaj U Have To Listen To It On Youtube. Cause See Nicki Ain’t Worried About The Hater’s Cause While They Hating She Doing Her Thing Cause Instead Of So Worried About Nicki Having The Spot Light They Ain’t Going To Be Paying Attenion To There Life And The Time If They Do Steal The Spot Light Back Away From Her They Will Be All Happy Until They Look At They Life And They Be Like Oh My God What Happen To My Life. Cause What Goes Around Comes Back Around.

    Idk why she’s headlining anyone’s tour b/c w| the fan base she got she can hold her own tour but touring w| Brit is good 4 her career. Anyway, I hope she gives us more hip-hop opposed to R&B, we had soft Nicki already. Hope she gets back 2 her mixtape days, Pink Friday just wasn’t doing it 4 me.

    @NoNickiDdidn’t, Because She Didnt Say She Laughs At Slave Movies She Said Her Team Watches Them And Their Accents Are Funny Because Nicki Always Trys To Do The Accents Thats The Full Version

    NoNickiDdidn't Reply:

    @BitchesIsMySons, Nicki didn’t say they laugh at slave movies, but NICKI IS LAUGHING at the act her team is doing. Nicki becomes so uncomfortable with revealing that horrible information, she tries to give herself a disclaimer by saying that she wasn’t involved, only her team. Admit it, Nicki and her team laughs at black people as a favorite past time on the tour bus between stops.

    @BitchesIsMySons, Nicki brought up the word “accent” after she was clearly uncomfortable with what she was revealing. WATCH NOW at mypinkfriday.com Full WIIS Live Chat at the 46:00 – 48:00 mark to get the full segment.

    @Ice, And do you call black people “nappy-headed hoes?” Do u allow ur friends to call black people, “ignorant and coons?” If so, then Nicki is for you. Do your thang. But for those who do care, I am making them aware of Nicki’s position and they can decide for themselves whether Nicki’s position is callous.

    @NoNickiDdidn’t, and your point ?nicki hair dresser and make up artist both black like watching old timey south movies and her hypeman and her other friends on the bus dont like watching those types of movies …she was saying that was a conflict on her tour bus but she was saying she don’t pick sides cause she don’t care she just be eating

    nickis first album pink friday went platinum so you cant say shit
    and how u sayin u like some shit like trina stan
    is she even relevant
    NO
    she is a rap bitch that doesnt know the whole true meaning of being a singer
    nicki is one of the best rounded singers i know
    being able to rap hard and do what she did on some of her tracks on pink friday
    the other side,the pop side of her singing as in dear old nicki and right thru me
    and nicki is the best female rapper in the whole music biz
    lil kim is old and no longer sellin shit
    and how dare keys getting nickis face when she dont even have an album yet or record deal
    still on the streets
    get real bitch nicki is the best
    and no hoe gonna say different

    I hope for more Caribbean Reggae maybe Soca inspired tracks. Pink Friday was cool but it came off a little too Pop for me. She’s got the lyrics for sure though. I’d love for her NOT to sing anymore either. Hope there is less collaborations as well.

    Nicki is certainly not playing around. But being a female rapper and achieving this much success (whether you love her or hate her), who can really blame her milking it for all its worth. I heard she always wants to shoot a video for “Girls Fall Like Dominoes”?

    [Reply]

  19. BLAZE

    I hope she comes more hard onthe next one something for her male fans.Pink Friday was ok it had good points an some very bad ones but this album was for the ladies.I still like her as an artist tho she needs to drop this look too the marge simpson hair aint working for me.

    [Reply]

  20. HoustonGirl

    Her next album is going to flop.As soon as Pink Friday came out people were blowing up twitter talking about how wack the album was and a good majority of them were die hard Nicki fans.Alot of people who bought it said they were expecting more and that they want the old Nicki back.Pink friday was the worst album I heard in the last 10 years.

    @HoustonGirl, i always know that you dont have anything positive to say so you make up stories to feed your ego .Well as for Nickis second album its going to sell even more than pink friday because you are not God. People said their likes and believe me their are many likes than dislikes when it comes to Nicki minaj and people like you cannot stop her shine because you dint give it to her.And by the grace of God i will be here to laugh at you when Nicki exceeds all your expectation.

    Like I said Nicki will flop because she i neglecting hiphop. What hiphop artist sings on every track *waits* Oh okay. Only hiphop dong was did it on em. The rest sounded like an orchestra.

    [Reply]

    unbelievable Reply:

    @MeloRockstarr, Nicki is making music for a broader base. These little white girls like Taylor Swift enjoys her music. Did it on em is #3 on Billboard R&B/hip hop. Moment 4 Life is #4. Nicki is winning.

    [Reply]

    @OMGandrew Reply:

    @MeloRockstarr, even if she was “NEGLECTING” hiphop (which she’s not) she’s still going to sell albums, her fans like her for her type of music not necessarily because she’s hiphop artist! therefore your opinion just sounds DUMB

    im sure a lot of her white fans like her because her music sounds a little like pop, and thats smart of Nicki to do because now she has a way bigger fan base than before … this coming up album might now sell 375k in the first week just because PF was a lot more anticipated, but im sure it will out sell PF eventually
