Other fans thought the number could be a countdown to new music. “NICKI MINAJ TWEETED 4. AT MIDNIGHT IN 4 DAYS IT WILL BE FRIDAY THE 13TH. THIS MIGHT POSSIBLY BE THE DAY OF HER FOURTH ALBUM RELEASE,” tweeted one Barb.
This year, Nicki Minaj has shied away from the spotlight while crafting her long-awaited new album. She re-surfaced in a Mercedes-Benz and TIDAL ad last month.
Little is known about Minaj’s fourth album. Last year, she released a three-pack bundle, including “No Frauds” featuring Lil Wayne and Drake, “Regret In Your Tears,” and the Lil Wayne-assisted “Changed It.”
Minaj has high hopes for her fourth album. “I have to release a classic at this point,” she explained. “I’m going to go even deeper than I went with The Pinkprint because I have a lot to talk about. Why not? I feel like when your fans wait two years for you to put out another album, it has to be worth it. It has to be an honest exchange of dialogue.”
UPDATE: Nicki Minaj keeps fans guessing. After fueling rumors with her “4” tweet, Barbie tweeted and deleted the number “3.” Her new tweet arrived Monday afternoon and was scrubbed away just moments later. Is Nicki about to return with new material this week?
