Mark your calendars! According to Billboard, Nicki Minaj’s third studio album, Pink Friday: The Pinkprint, is due for release November 28th! The anticipated album follows the female MC’s 2012 release, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. While the album’s first two singles “Pills ‘N Potions” and “Anaconda” topped charts worldwide, I’m looking forward to seeing what Nicki has in store! “The Pinkprint will remind people why they fell in love with Nicki Minaj. And I think people need that,” she explained. While Nicki’s 2012 album consisted of mostly pop-felt tracks, I believe that Nicki will return to her Pink Friday roots. Nicki notes Jay Z’s 2001 album, The Blueprint, as her biggest inspiration this time around, “I want female rappers to be able to pattern themselves with what I’ve done one day. I think the album is so classic. It’s gonna feel so good and I think it will probably be something that female rappers look to as a Pinkprint for years to come,” she continued. Are you ready for the The Pinkprint? As Nicki Minaj prepares her November 28th release, her current single “Anaconda” sits at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100!
