Fly Ty's Update

Many fans reacted with excitement in the comments section. One wrote: "Whatever it is, pls make it fast, I really miss Nicki." Others complained about Fly Ty making his behind the scene business with Nicki public: "Why every time someone communicates with Nicki they gotta make it known… Like learn to keep it to yourself. This why she be changing her mind about plans."

Minaj is currently gearing up for the release of her fifth studio album. She recently confirmed that it will be released "soon" during an interview with i-D. “The fifth album," she began. "I’m not gonna say when it’s gonna come out, but the album will be out soon. And I am working on a nail design company, where people will be able to buy my press-on nail with dope designs. I was already working on that before someone auctioned my press-on nail for $50,000 or whatever they spent on it.” Nicki's next album will be her first since 2018's Queen.

Nicki's fifth studio album will arrive after Billboard recently labeled the Queens artist the greatest female rapper of all time. The outlet cited her "genre-bending albums" and "killer guest verses" as demonstrating her legendary ability. Nicki is also one of only a dozen artists to have more than 100 entries on the Billboard Hot 100.
