Nicki Minaj Announces Two New Singles

After teasing fans over the weekend by tweeting and deleting a countdown, Minaj has unveiled the covers for two new singles on her Instagram Tuesday morning.

Minaj first revealed the cover for “Barbie Tingz,” which saw her standing in Victorian garb standing amidst a group of masked henchwomen.

Next, she revealed the cover for the song “Chun-Li,” named, of course, after everyone’s favorite ass-kicking video game heroine.

Minaj hasn’t released new music since March 2017, when she put out “No Frauds,” “Changed It” and “Regret In Your Tears” all at once. Minaj is expected to drop her fourth album this year, her first since 2014’s The Pinkprint.

Come through, queen!
