For those who thought Nicki Minaj had gone totally popcorn after dropping the Katy Perry-esque track, “Starships,” her latest single “Roman Reloaded” featuring Lil Wayne, may prove the Queens artist is still somewhat sticking to her roots. But with little over a month left before she drops her highly anticipated sophomore LP, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, on April 3, the jury may still be out.
MTV News recently caught up with Harajuku Barbie in between her All-Star Game performance in Orlando on Sunday (February 26) and got the 411 on her plans with Pink Friday part deux. “That’s just a preview of what’s to come on the album,” said Nicki of her more traditional second single, “Roman Reloaded.” “I know what people need right now.”
Minaj promises fireworks when her album hits stores next month, and said the significance of this album will be felt across genres. “April 3 is gonna be a doozy. It’s gonna be crazy,” said Nicki. “It’s gonna be important for just Hip-Hop culture and pop culture. It’s gonna be very big.”
On Thursday (March 1), the Young Money mistress unveiled the colorful cover art for Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
