All the Barbz have received the best news from this iconic rapper.
Nicki Minaj set her fans in a frenzy when she recently confirmed the highly anticipated release of her sequel album Pink Friday 2, which is very nostalgic since it follows her debut album Pink Friday. This will be Minaj’s first studio album since Queen that was released five years ago. After announcing the news that her next album was coming, fans immediately flooded her mentions to receive a date that they could hold on to. She confirmed the upcoming album in an Instagram post with the caption, “I love you guys so much. I am so grateful for the years of support & love you guys have given me. At times maybe I didn’t even deserve all that you have poured into me. Nonetheless, you. will. love. this. album.”
The release date for Pink Friday 2 is slated for November 17, 2023. Although fans may have to wait a little while longer for the album to be in their grasps, this legend also confirmed in her Instagram post that the Barbz will get a tour this upcoming year. She wrote, “I will give tour deets closer to that time, but obviously the tour will start around the first quarter of 2024. I’ll also share the REAL album cover at a later date.” This will mark Minaj’s first tour since 2019 and she hasn’t released dates or tickets yet for sale. However, this hasn’t stopped fans from guessing what countries she’ll tour and the set list that she’ll perform. Additionally, fans are wondering whether anyone from Young Money, such as Drake or Lil Wayne, will be brought out as surprises by Minaj.
Minaj will continue her live Queen Radio that’s now on Amazon’s new live audio app called Amp and gearing up for her releases that she has lined up. I know that I’ll definitely be in attendance for her Chicago tour performance, will you?
