Nicki Minaj is back, and she's releasing two new songs this week called "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li."

 

The rapper displayed the new artwork for each song on social media. Though she hasn't released an album since The Pinkprint in 2014, Minaj has been collaborating with Lil Uzi Vert on "The Way Life Goes," Travis Scott on "Krippy Kush," Migos "Motorsport" and Yo Gotti "Rake It Up."

 

She was also featured on Quality Control's "Control the Street Vol. 1" mixtape with Quavo on "She for Keeps."


Recently rockstar Jack White bragged about Minaj. He told Clash Music that her song "Only" is a perfect example of why hip-hop is groundbreaking.

 

"I mean, some of those lyrics are like, 'Holy sh!' I, as an adult, listening to that by myself, am shocked at some of the words that Im hearing," White explained. "But it's brilliant! Its brilliant to be able to say whatever you want. I couldnt get away with saying half of those things that Nicki Minaj says in that song."

Fans have been waiting patiently for Minaj's next album, as she told Dazed, "Tomorrow, I might walk into the studio and decide that I dont like anything Ive done in the last six months. Or, tomorrow I might walk in and feel like the whole album is done. Theres so much beauty in not knowing. I just want to go in the studio and create like I used to, before there were any expectations. You know? When I was just having fun, working on my mixtapes, going in and creating... writing my little life."

This era will be a billion times more epic than anything Anaconda could have delivered. I think this era will definitely be the most memorable and the most impactful of my career yet.
