Nicki Minaj and Britney Spears

Nicki Minaj Joins Britney Spears’ Tour

It’s official. Nicki Minaj will be hitting the road with Britney Spears on her summer tour.

After reports surfaced earlier this month, sources confirm to TMZ that a deal was finalized several days ago. Britney and her team are said to be “elated” with the trek’s new opening act after Enrique Iglesias pulled at the last minute.

Those involved with the negotiations believe the Young Money raptress will create even more buzz for the pop superstar’s tour, which kicks off on June 17 in Sacramento, Calif.

Nicki is currently traveling the country with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, and Travis Barker on the “I Am Music II” tour, winding down on April 29 in Canada.
