Weather Alert

Nicki Minaj says the music industry needs her now: “You got to come back and put some order.”

Nicki Minaj has been quiet musically for the past three years, but now she’s back with two tracks with Lil Baby: “Bussin‘,” and her new single, “Do We Have A Problem?”

These are her first songs as a lead artist since “Megatron” in 2019. Since then, other female MCs have gained prominence but the “Super Bass” rapper isn’t impressed with today’s music, and she says now is the time for her comeback.

“I felt like, yo, the people not only want you, but they need you. I feel. When you are a leader in anything you do, when things are going helter-skelter, you got to come back and put some order,” Minaj told Zane Lowe on his Apple Music show, New Music Daily. “That’s what I felt I was doing with this, just bringing it back to rap, records, gutter s***, just where people can play it and they can sing along to it with their dude. And you know what I’m saying? You just get that natural essence of rap again.”

Nicki’s last album, Queen, was released in 2018, She says now she is ready to drop more new music.

“The album is coming very soon, obviously. From now on, every Friday, it will be called Pink Friday. I do have a lot of surprises lined up for the fans leading up to the album, but we want to definitely get the album out there quickly,” she continues. “I would like to give them a taste of a little bit more music before the album comes out, but we think that it’s time.”
