New music from Nicki Minaj is here! After more than a week of social media hiatus, the rapper shocked fans by returning on Nov. 15 with a hot new track called ‘Black Barbies’ — listen now!
With no warning whatsoever, Nicki Minaj took to Twitter in the early morning of Nov. 15 to release her new song “Black Barbies,” and immediately, her followers began going NUTS. She began retweeting messages from fans freaking out about the music with tweets like, “SIS I HAVE A 8AM CLASS AND YOU TRYNNA DERAIL MY BRAIN” and “After all this other nonsense in the world we needed a little [fire emojis].” Listen to the song here:
Even though the rapper has spent several weeks dominating the charts alongside Ariana Grande with their latest hit, “Side To Side,” this is her first solo single since 2015’s “Trini Dem Girls,” and fans have been waiting eagerly to hear something new.
So, why did she decide to drop this new track all of a sudden now? “Cuz 2 Lil black kids got the NUMBER 1 RECORD IN THE COUNTRY & I’m sooooo happy for Mike Will,” she revealed on Instagram, referring to her pal, MikeWillMadeIt and Gucci Mane’s track “Guwop.” Well, that’s a good enough reason, right?! We’ll certainly take it!
If you’re totally feeling Nicki right now, get excited — she’ll be at the American Music Awards this Sunday, Nov. 20! The 33-year-old will be performing “Side To Side” at the show, and although she’s not nominated for any awards, she’ll definitely be a buzzed-about part of the show. Um, maybe she’ll even sing a few lines of “Black Barbies” while on the stage?!
