The Met Gala also saw Minaj pictured in a conversation with Cardi B, who she was previously believed to have been involved in a feud with. The pair also posed for a photo.

Last week saw Minaj share two new videos for latest singles ‘Chun-Li’ and ‘Barbie Tingz’.

Minaj hasn’t released an album since 2014’s ‘The Pinkprint’. However, last year she put out a number of tracks, including collaborations with Drake and Lil Wayne (‘No Frauds’), and Migos and Cardi B (‘MotorSport’).

The star recently addressed rumours that she was taking aim at Cardi B on a leaked snippet of a new song, in which she rapped: “I ain’t never had to strip to get the pole position.” Speaking to Beats 1’s Zane Lowe, she said: “I wrote that song in Paris a year and a half ago. It was meant to be for Drake’s new album, so that’s how old that is.”

Cardi B recently denied ever having beef with Minaj, saying that fans on the internet made the whole thing up.
