Well, at least she'll be dropping other surprises on Nov. 17th still.

Nicki Minaj has once again rescheduled the release of her highly-anticipated album, Pink Friday 2. Initially, the album was set to drop on October 20, but it was then postponed to November 17. Now, fans can look forward to the album's release on December 8, a date that holds special significance as it coincides with Nicki Minaj's birthday. In an Instagram Live session, Nicki Minaj revealed the reasons behind this latest change in the album's release date. She explained, "Weezy and 2 Chainz, they announced their date. And you know how me and Weezy play. He would never." Nicki Minaj's close relationship with fellow rapper Lil Wayne, often referred to as Weezy, is well-known in the music industry. This connection likely played a role in her decision to shift the album's release date to avoid a scheduling conflict.

However, a deeper conversation with streamer Kai Cenat revealed another crucial factor contributing to the delay of Pink Friday 2. Nicki explained that the unavailability of vinyl albums for shipping on the original release date necessitated the change. Vinyl records have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity, offering fans a tangible and collectible way to experience their favorite music. To ensure that fans have the opportunity to purchase vinyl editions of her album on its release, Nicki Minaj decided to move the date to December 8.
