Nicki Minaj goes colorful in a cover art for her upcoming studio album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded". The artwork features a close-up look at the Young Money femcee rocking blonde hair, long thick eyelashes and red lipstick. Having her face painted with neon-color paints a la Ke$ha, she stands in front of a graffitied wall while glaring to the camera.
The "Roman Reloaded" album is going to be released in the United States on April 3. "April 3 is gonna be a doozy. It's gonna be crazy," the female rapper gushed to MTV in an interview after her performance at NBA All-Star Game. "It's gonna be important for just hip-hop culture and pop culture. It's gonna be very big."
In a separate interview, Cash Money co-CEO Birdman expressed his full support for her. "Words don't describe how talented she is," he told Billboard. "This album she has is incredible -- she's not just rapping, she's doing it all. She's versatile, and I think people are gonna be so impressed by the growth and what her music has become. I'm excited, and I can't wait to see the outcome of it."
