The follow-up to 2012's 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' has spawned some new tracks including 'Anaconda' that's currently sitting at No. 2 on Billboard Hot 100.
Nicki Minaj's highly-anticipated new album, "The Pink Print", finally has a release date. According to Billboard, the follow-up to 2012's "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" is scheduled to hit the stores on November 28 a.k.a. Black Friday.
Minaj's forthcoming project has been preceded by singles "Pills and Potions" and "Anaconda". The latter track, which samples Sir Mix-a-Lot's 1992 hit "Baby's Got Back", soared to No. 2 on Billboard Hot 100 and at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart earlier this week following the raptress' performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, August 24.
The Young Money artist has said that "The Pink Print" is a nod to Jay-Z's 2001 album "The Blueprint". "I wanted to do that, I wanted to be like Jay Z. I felt like with what I'm doing, I want female rappers to be able to pattern themselves with what I've done one day," she told MTV.
Of what to expect from the eagerly-awaited LP, Minaj explained to "The Breakfast Club", "I think the album is so classic. It's gonna feel so good and I think it will probably be something that female rappers look to as a Pinkprint for years to come."
UPDATE (Aug. 30, 2014 05:13 GMT): Representatives for Nicki Minaj have denied the news, telling Billboard that the release date of "The Pink Print" album has not yet been determined .
