Nicki Minaj to Debut New Song at the Grammys

Fans will hear Nicki Minaj's “Roman Holiday” on Sunday.

Published February 7, 2012

When she takes the stage at the Grammys this Sunday, all eyes will be on Nicki Minaj — and for more than just a glimpse at her latest outfit. The Young Money star is set to debut a new cut from her highly anticipated new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded during a performance at the high-profile awards show.

Minaj will perform the new song "Roman Holiday" for the first time on Sunday, just two days before she had been scheduled to release her highly anticipated sophomore album. Due to delays however, the album won't actually reach stores until April 3.

The "Super Bass" singer has already teased two tracks from the project, releasing "Roman in Moscow" last November, followed by "Stupid Hoe" in December. The day after the Grammys, a separate song called "Starships" will premiere on Ryan Seacrest's radio show as the new album's next official single, MTV News reports.

This will be Minaj's first performance at the Grammy Awards, but the rising star has already performed on an even larger stage. Last Sunday she held her own next to Madonna, M.I.A. and a legion of festooned backup dancers during the Queen of Pop's much buzzed about Super Bowl halftime show. The three performers are featured on Madonna's latest single "Give Me All Your Luvin.'"
