Nicki Minaj Teases "Last Time I Saw You"

It's clear that Nicki takes pride in her lyrical prowess, and fans were delighted to get a taste of what's to come. From what can be heard in the snippet, the track seems to be about a painful breakup. Nicki spits about a heartbreak that was "never mended," though who exactly the song is about remains unclear. Nicki's bars are also accompanied by some bittersweet production, serving as a departure from her other recent offerings.

Supporters are gearing up for the highly-anticipated release of Pink Friday 2, which is expected to drop on November 17 of this year. It acts as a follow-up to her acclaimed 2010 debut album Pink Friday, which is known to have cemented Nicki's place as a rap staple. It features hits like "Moment 4 Life," "Fly," "Roman's Revenge," and more. With that being said, listeners look forward to another iconic LP with Pink Friday 2.
