Nicki Minaj debuted the first song from her forthcoming new album this afternoon, unleashing "Roman in Moscow" on the masses. The track finds the Young Money fire-breather in full rap mode, navigating a five-alarm beat and engaging with her mischievous alter ego, Roman.
"I'm baaaaaaaaaack," she shouts.
Minaj has racked up a slew of accolades recently, including Grammy nominations for Best Rap Album of the year and Best New Artist, and Billboard's Rising Star of 2011 honors. Harajuku Barbie will also enjoy the honor of having Mattel create an actual Barbie doll in her likeness to be auctioned off for charity.
The female Weezy's sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, is due in stores Valentine's Day 2012, and she has promised to unleash her alter ego throughout.
