After going platinum with “Anaconda” (which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100), Nicki Minaj is readying the follow-up to her Sir Mix-a-Lot-sampled smash. Her Minajesty has announced “Only” as the third single off her upcoming album The PinkPrint. It features a trifecta of superstars including Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown.

The song drops Tuesday, October 28. Nicki took to Instagram to reveal the illustrated artwork, which shows Young Money’s First Lady in a superhero catsuit, Drake as the pope, and Weezy in a suit and tie.

Her third album The PinkPrint is due November 24. “I think the album is so classic,” said Nicki, who will host the MTV EMA in Glasgow on November 9. “It’s gonna feel so good and I think it will probably be something that female rappers look to as a PinkPrint for years to come.”

This marks Drake and Breezy’s first collaboration since their infamous club fight in June 2012. The two were seen in the studio over the summer working on new music.

Single Cover: Iggy Azalea f/ Rita Ora – ‘Black Widow’

Black Widow

Blonde ambition. Iggy Azalea and Rita Ora combine their superpowers on the illustrated cover for “Black Widow,” the next single off Iggy’s debut The New Classic. The Kill Bill-inspired artwork shows a sword-wielding Iggy in action alongside her British counterpart, who rocks a cleavage-baring catsuit.

They have already shot a video for the vengeful anthem, co-written by Katy Perry and produced by Benny Blanco and Stargate. While the shoot required physical training, it won’t be movie-themed like Iggy’s “Fancy” video.

“It’s just a very physical video,” Iggy told MTV, while Rita added, “She’s literally putting me in bootcamp.”

The femme fatales performed the song live for the first time at last weekend’s Wireless Festival in the U.K.

Meanwhile, “Fancy” continues to dominate the charts. The Charli XCX-assisted song sits atop the Billboard Hot 100 for a seventh week.
