Nicki Minaj To ‘Take Her Time’ With The Follow Up To ‘The Pinkprint’
We’re sorry to say this Barbz – but if you’re looking forward to new music from Nicki Minaj this year, you may be highly disappointed. After releasing ‘The Pinkprint’ at the end of 2014 and spending all of 2015 promoting it, it seems like the world’s biggest female rapper is ready to wind down and live life a little bit before she heads back into the studio again.
Speaking exclusively to NYLON for their April cover, Nicki shared that she’s ready to let the world in on the different place she’s at in her life…but only when she feels that she’s ready.
I needed time to hear myself think again because where I left off with The Pinkprint was a little bit emotionally unstable. I wanted to take a moment to just live my life, enjoy my life, have fun, go out. I think that’s very important before you start writing again. It’s a spiritual experience for the people who are hearing the music, so I’m trying to be very careful of what mental space I’m in while I’m creating it. Now, I want my happiness to be reflected in the new stuff.
We know – it’s heartbreaking, but it’s a wise choice. ‘The Pinkprint’ was such a specific time in Nicki’s life, more specifically a tumultuous time. It was a different life and now we have a different Nicki. In order for her to deliver the best work possible, she needs to and should take the time to get inspired again.
But hey – it’s not like we won’t see her at all. Nicki is slated to appear in a string of movies throughout the year – including Barbershop 3 – and premiere her highly anticipated sitcom on Freeform.
