Trinidadian baddie and Young Money Cash Money Princess, Nicki Minaj, has released a sneak preview for her new video, “Pills N Potions”, on WorldStarHipHop on Friday, June 5th, 2014. “Pills N Potions”, which was announced as the lead single on “The Pink Print” at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, has held a spot on the US Billboard Hot 100 as number 42 three days after. Her new album, “The Pink Print”, is scheduled for release in 2014, though the month and day are to be announced. “It’s coming,” Nicki says, “just wait on it”. Born Onika Tanya Maraj, she has released three mixtapes between the years 2007 and 2009, which ultimately led to her singing with Young Money Entertainment. The Jamaica, Queens, New York native has received recognition as a trendsetter and fashion icon with her loud costumes, clothing and wigs, as well as her ability to channel alter egos (the most famous being British). With the mystery release of The Pink Print, directed by Nabil, “the most influential female rapper of all time”, suggests The New York Times, has fans on their toes anticipating impatiently. Nicki will NOT be pulling a Beyonce and will, in fact, unveil the release date [when] the album is really done and I’ve lived with it for a long time.
The title of her new album is heavily influenced by Jay-Z‘s album, The Blueprint. “He did such a good job of creating this Blueprint brand for male rappers”, states Nicki about her all-time favorite rapper, “and I wanted to do that [for] female rappers to be able to pattern themselves with what I’ve done one day”. Confirmed tracks for the seven-time BET Award winning female artist’s album include “Lookin Ass”, “Yasss Bish”, and “Chi-Raq”. As opposed to her dance-pop style demonstrated in Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, the self-proclaimed Barbie said that she wanted to “focus on rap”.
