The artist on everybody's mind this week is undeniably Nicki Minaj. With her ultra-sexy, banging new sing "Anaconda," there's one question on her fans mind: when will her new album The Pink Print be released? In a new interview with Carson Daly, Minaj teased her new album and revealed a final release date... sort of.
According to Minaj, The Pink Print will be released by the end of the year, more specifically in the fourth quarter (meaning between October and December).
“The album will definitely be out in the fourth quarter of the year,” Minaj announced before detailing the new release. “I just have to say that I’m at such a different place as a human being. I know artists say that all the time but now I understand why. Nothing really surprises me anymore. I handle things more maturely. Just writing wise I can put my thoughts together better I feel. So sonically I think the album sounds so amazing. And there are so many surprises on the album.”
It’s unknown what the “surprises” will be… but Minaj has teased that the music is “really, really great.”
And judging by the booty-bouncing “Anaconda,” it’s hard to see how it won’t be!
Minaj didn’t just tease a date for the start of The Pink Print, she also announced she’ll be touring behind the new effort next year, beginning abroad. “We’re actually going to start the tour at the top of 2015, we’re going to start a European run and then we will back in America for a summer run,” she said.
The Pink Print will be Minaj’s third studio album, set to follow the release of her April 2012 album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. It’s thus far been promoted by singles “Pills N Potions” and “Anaconda.”
