Nicki Minaj is ready to release two new singles this week. In anticipation of the new work, a snippet of “Barbie Tingz” has hit the net.
Over an ’80s-inspired instrumental, Nicki takes aim at her nameless clones. She also takes a moment to explain her lengthy social media hiatus.
“I get all my ni**as off, but they would still wife me,” she raps. “Rap bitches tell they team make ’em like Barbie / Had to come off IG so they can’t stalk me / All they do is copy looks, steal music too / Want to see what bitches do when they lose the blueprint.”

Nicki is also set to release the “Street Fighter”-inspired “Chun-Li” on Thursday (April 12) at 10 a.m. PST and sit down for an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1. She has also reportedly collaborated with Young Thug on a song titled “Anybody,” which may also drop this week.
Barbie’s two new tracks are expected to appear on her highly-anticipated fourth album. It will be her first full-length release since 2014’s The Pinkprint.
