Speaking this year, Nicki teased that her new album – the follow-up to 2014’s ‘The Pinkprint’ – will be a “celebration” as she is happy in life. She said: “I know what this album is gonna mean to my fans.This album is everything in my life coming full circle and me being truly, genuinely happy.

“It feels almost like a celebration … ‘The Pinkprint’ was almost like my diary, closing the chapter on certain things and not knowing if I was happy or sad about beginning new chapters.I was really writing about feeling unsure. Now, I can tell you guys what happened for the last two years of my life.

“I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.”

Meanwhile, Nicki previously said she’d like to make a joint album with Beyonce.

The pair previously collaborated on tracks including 2013’s ‘Feeling Myself’ and ‘***Flawless’, but the ‘Superbass’ hitmaker would be “open” to joining forces with the ‘Crazy in Love’ hitmaker to produce a rival record to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s ‘Watch The Throne’ compilation.

Nicki – whose full name is Onika Tanya Maraj – said: “I would be open to doing [that] if the time was right. I haven’t thought too much about that, though. The only person that I’ve seen a lot of people speak on when talking about an album of that caliber, is Beyoncé ’cause we did ‘***Flawless’ [remix] and ‘Feeling Myself’ and we’ve actually performed together.”
