Nicki Minaj to Drop New Single ‘The Boys’ Featuring a ‘Real Pretty’ Artist
While Nicki Minaj continues to work on her upcoming re-release of 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded -- The Re-Up,' she is set to drop the first single from the collection called 'The Boys.' Although details are scarce, the Queen Barbz did drop a few hints on Twitter about the song.
As Rap-Up reported, 'The Boys' single will drop on Thursday, according to Minaj's latest cryptic tweet, and will feature an undisclosed artist female artist. When her Barbz pressed for a clue on the mysterious artist, Minaj responded, "She's real pretty."
As for who could this "pretty" female artist be, well, it could be anyone's guess. A good candidate would be Alicia Keys since she worked with the piano diva on the 'Girl on Fire (Inferno Version).' Minaj also tweeted a line from the song: "I just come thru w/the SIX like my name was BLOSSOM," which is in reference to the popular '90s sitcom starring Mayim Bialik.
As we previously reported, Minaj plans to release 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded -- The Re-Up' in November. The collection is expected to have five to eight new songs including one featuring her Young Money boss Lil Wayne. "I’m putting lots of new songs on there," she says. "So Barbz, you are going to spaz, you are going to love it, you are going to go crazy."
'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' was released back in April and although it got mixed reviews, it’s still went platinum. Recently, Minaj's polarizing hit single, ‘Starships,’ won Best Female Video at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards.
