To all the Nicki Minaj fans out there who have been sending out smoke signals and search parties for your girl, take a chill pill. Mama is working.
Last week, the Barbs launched a social media campaign looking to find Nicki, who hadn’t been on social media or spotted in public all of 2018. It seemed very unusual that the rapper would leave all 107 million followers on Instagram and Twitter hanging, since she’s known to engage with them often. As it turns out, Nicki has been super low key because she’s currently cooking up a “masterpiece” of an album and can’t afford any distractions.
Thanks to some top secret sources, TMZ has learned that Nicki Minaj is holed up in the studio and decided to go on a social media purge at the end of 2017 in order to fully focus on making new music (her last post was on December 30th.) Allegedly, Nicki has an entire camp of hit makers in the studio helping her compose new tracks for the album and each one is a certified banger.
Though Onika is MIA from the ’gram, she is clearly still booked and busy based on some beautiful shots she recently took for Vogue Magazine. Dressed head-to-toe in Calvin Klein, she spoke to the fashion mag about constantly reinventing her image. “Transforming, to me, means changing for the better based on your experiences,” she says. “I’m equipped to be a better boss now.”
We sure do hope that album is straight flames.
