A teaser for a more high-budget video for ‘Barbie Tingz’ has also been shared on YouTube.

Minaj last released an album in 2014 in the form of ‘The Pinkprint’. Last year saw the artist release a number of tracks, including her Drake and Lil Wayne collaboration ‘No Frauds’ and Migos and Cardi B team-up ‘MotorSport’.

Minaj also 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 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.
