Nicki Minaj’s s long-awaited fifth album Pink Friday 2 is coming soon, and pink is definitely the mood.

Destination: Pink Friday 2.
Curiously, there’s more to come. “Album cover #1 of 2,” she writes on her Instagram post.
Pink Friday 2 is scheduled to arrive Nov. 17, though Minaj has released a few cuts from it, “Super Freaky Girl,” “Red Ruby Da Sleeze,” and “Last Time I Saw You”.
Minaj already got her pink on for “Barbie World,” her hit collaboration with Ice Spice and Aqua, which appeared on the Barbie soundtrack.
Pink Friday 2 is the sequel to Minaj’s Billboard 200-topping debut studio album from 2010, and will serve as her first LP since 2018’s Queen, which peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and spawned singles including “Chun-Li” and “Good Form.”
She’s not lacking any confidence ahead of release date. “Just know that ‘Pink Friday 2’ is going to be the best album that’s been released in years,” she recently announced.
Earlier in the year, the Trinidadian artist expressing gratitude toward her fans and teased plans for a new tour slated for 2024. “I love you guys so much,” she said. “I am so grateful for the years of support & love you guys have given me. At times maybe I didn’t even deserve all that you have poured into me. Nonetheless, you. will. love. this. album. I will give tour deets closer to that time, but obviously the tour will start around the first quarter of 2024.”
Initially, she revealed the new LP would arrive in October, before the release date was pushed back to mid-November.
