Nicki Minaj fans will be getting more of her music on their streaming service of choice.
Nicki Minaj had already made a large part of her discography available on the three most popular digital music platforms in North America, but now one of rap's leading ladies is taking things a step further and bringing her fans even more sonic nourishment in the form of her bonus tracks.
The "Anaconda" emcee took to Instagram this weekend to announce that her bonus tracks from several previous albums will be made available on some major streaming services. The selection of songs - which includes "Catch Me," "Wamables," "Truffle Butter," "Mona Lisa" and "Put You In A Rom" - are have been uploaded to Tidal and, as of Minaj's post, were being added to Spotify and Apple's iTunes infrastructure, which would most likely translate in Apple Music adds as well. There's no word on whether these song additions will vary based on geographical region, so users outside of the United States and Canada may not see the same amount of song adds.
"By popular demand... I just added all my bonus songs to the streaming services," said Nicki in the caption. "They're on Tidal & currently uploading to Spotify + iTunes. [#CatchMe, #Wamables, #TruffleButter, #MonaLisa #PutYouInARoom etc] - I'm having them add #Chiraq & #YasssBish at a later date. Fingers crossed I'll get them to upload my last mixtape as well #BeamMeUpScotty but for now, u can listen to these." Later on in her write-up, she teased her upcoming album and was already forecasting some lofty praise for the project. "The new album is coming & will be your favorite Nicki project thus far," she proclaimed. "That's fax. Big FAX." Though she and her production team are keeping things pretty tight-lipped as far as the content of her forthcoming release, rap's foremost diva has already heralded the album as a big moment in her career.
"This era will be a billion times more epic than anything 'Anaconda' could have delivered," Nicki said in an interview with Dazed. "I think this era will definitely be the most memorable and the most impactful of my career yet." She is also taking her time with the material, trying to get everything to sound as perfect as possible. "I can't say if I'm fifty-per-cent, eighty-per-cent or ten-per-cent done, because I don't know," she continued. "Tomorrow, I might walk into the studio and decide that I don't like anything I've done in the last six months. Or, tomorrow I might walk in and feel like the whole album is done. There's so much beauty in not knowing."
