Nicki Minaj Pushes ‘The PinkPrint’ to December

Barbz, you’ll have to wait a little longer to get your hands on Nicki Minaj’s The PinkPrint. The highly-anticipated album has been pushed back three weeks.

According to a press release, the third LP from the Young Money queen will now arrive just in time for the holidays on Monday, December 15. It was previously slated for a November 24 release.

Nicki is set to premiere her new single “Only” featuring Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown on Tuesday, October 28. The track was produced by Dr. Luke, Cirkut, and J Mike.

“Only” marks the third single off The PinkPrint following “Pills N Potions” and the Sir Mix-a-Lot-sampled smash “Anaconda,” which hit No. 2 on the Hot 100.

The PinkPrint will remind people why they fell in love with Nicki Minaj,” Nicki said of the follow-up to 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. “And I think that needs to be done.”

Before her December due date, she will host the MTV EMA in Glasgow, Scotland on November 9.

Nicki is not the only Young Money artist experiencing a delay. Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V has been pushed back from its original October 28 date.
