Nicki Minaj has been keeping a relatively low profile in 2019. Aside from appearing alongside Chris Brown on his single “Wobble Up,” the Young Money rapper has only released a handful of freestyles since her 2018 album Queen, but it looks like that is about to change.
On Wednesday (June 12), Nicki took to Twitter with a tweet that merely read, “MEGATRON,” leaving fans to speculate what she could be referring to. Less than 24 hours later, the rapper gave her Barbz some more insight, revealing that it’s a song and it will be dropping very soon.
“#Megatron + #QueenRadio 6|21” Nicki wrote on Instagram on Thursday (June 13), along with a pair of behind-the-scenes photos from a promotional shoot. In the pics, Nicki can be seen getting close with a shirtless man, but it is unclear whether it is the rapper’s boyfriend, Kenneth “Zoo” Petty.
Back in February, Nicki confirmed in an episode of Queen Radio that her fifth studio album was complete. The confirmation came at the end of her “Going Bad” remix, which she premiered on her show.
“The label hit me said they want the fifth thing-thing. I got in the studio, I did the fifth thing-thing,” Nicki says on the song’s outro. “And then they say, ‘You know, it’s time to drop your single.’ I said ‘Noooo.’ You know radio already tried to blackball a bitch.'”
