Barbz Army, your prayers have been answered. After a mysterious series of posted and deleted tweets in the past two days, Young Money first lady and Queens raptress Nicki Minaj has officially announced her first rap return of 2018.
The Pinkprint artist has kept fans on edge all year after disappearing from the Barbs favorite internet playgrounds, Twitter and Instagram, on a now four-month social media hiatus. A promotional clip for her new Mercedes-Benz venture, which marked her first Instagram post of the year, only kept fans thirsting even more for a feature, a beat, a cymbal—just something to confirm their queen’s return.
Well, Barbs, wait no longer. Nicki, or “Chun-Li,” as we’ll be dubbing her very soon, will finally be granting your wishes on Thursday (April 12), according to two forthcoming singles she declared on Tuesday afternoon (April 10).

Just looked up “Chun Li” to see it’s the first female fighter in a japanese game who seeks revenge for the death of her father. Wig evaporated. pic.twitter.com/plf1WkRvJ8— 4/13 🎈 (@The__Prototype) April 10, 2018
