The rapper talked about her plans for the follow-up to 2014's ‘The Pinkprint’ in a Nylon cover story
Nicki Minaj has revealed details about her next album, saying that it will reflect her current state of happiness.
The rapper described her last album, ‘The Pinkprint’, as “emotionally unstable” and said that the follow-up will be more positive in an interview with Nylon magazine.
She hinted that her fourth album will not be out soon, saying that she “needed time to hear myself think again” before returning to the studio.
Minaj also discussed her relationship with Meek Mill, who is currently under house arrest.
“When he and I were just friends, he would always say, ‘You remind me of my mother, and I like that because you’re like a dude. You’re tough like a guy and you talk like a dude.’ So I always got the sense that me being tough and bossy was a turn-on for him,” Minaj told Nylon.
The ‘Anaconda’ star dismissed rumours that the couple were engaged, telling the magazine that they are “taking one step at a time”.
Minaj said: “I’m not engaged yet… He said that my third ring would be my engagement ring. But sometimes he calls me his fiancée, and I’m always trying to stop him, like, ‘Nope! I ain’t got that third ring yet!’ We’re just taking it one step at a time. And, you know, if that happens, if I get married, then I’ll have a child, and that’ll be fun, because I can’t wait to hold my baby.”
Nicki Minaj released ‘The Pinkprint’ in 2014 and went on to tour worldwide the following year.
