Despite not releasing an album in 2013, Nicki Minaj had a pretty huge year. The Queens rapper placed at #4 on the top hip hop earners list, bringing in $29 Million, and placing her above her Cash Money superiors, Lil Wayne and Birdman. Nicki's certainly got her business game up, but she's ready to get back to music.

“That’s actually what I’m doing right now, beginning the third album and that will be out in 2014,” revealed Minaj in an interview with E! Online.

The Roman Reloaded emcee spoke of her American Idol stint, saying that music will always be her primary focus. “It was such a great experience. I would not trade it for the world,” she said. “But my heart is in my music and I had to step back and go have different experiences so that I could write my third album… That’s the most important thing in my life right now.”

In response to a recent Instagram photo of the Young Money rapper in the studio with Mike WiLL MAde It and Miley Cyrus, Nicki said that while they were working, the track didn't work out.

“I didn’t make any music with Miley,” she said. “There was a song that was a possibility but it didn’t work out.”
