Nicki Minaj’s next album will be full of happy songs


Nicki Minaj says her eagerly-anticipated fourth studio album will be a happier record to her emotional 2014 LP ‘The Pinkprint’.

The ‘Anaconda’ hitmaker admits her last LP – 2014’s ‘The Pinkprint’ – was written at a time when she felt “emotionally unstable” as her 11-year relationship with Safaree Samuels came to an end, but her fourth album will reflect the “happiness” she’s found in her relationship with her rapper boyfriend Meek Mill.

She explained: “I needed time to hear myself think again because where I left off with ‘The Pinkprint’ was a little bit emotionally unstable.

“I wanted to take a moment to just live my life, enjoy my life, have fun, go out. I think that’s very important before you start writing again. Now, I want my happiness to be reflected in the new stuff.”

The 33-year-old star – who is keen to have children with Meek – is currently laying down lyrics for her next record and has teased that her fans will have a “spiritual experience” when they hear the new material.

She told the new issue of Nylon magazine: “It’s a spiritual experience for the people who are hearing the music, so I’m trying to be very careful of what mental space I’m in while I’m creating it.”

As for when fans can expect the record it could be a little while yet as she’s focusing on her acting career and will be busy promoting her forthcoming film ‘Barbershop: The Next Cut’, which is released on April 19.

She said: “Musically, I feel very fulfilled, and now I can start tapping into my acting world, where it’s about passion and not about the money. It’s wanting to be what I set out to be when I was in high school: an actress.”

    Raila needs to address that to himself. The people of Naivasha were just but innocent victims of his violent brand of politics. Ordinary Kenyans want and desire peace and development more than anything else. Politicians on the other hand are ready to sacrifice their fellow citizens for the sake of power, money but without any discernible positive legacy. Raila is a personification of the violent, end-justifies-the-means dinosaur politician that Kenya needs to get rid of and quick before he takes the country down with him.

    Free the luo Nyanza from the yolk of tribalism before you tell the rest of the nation. It is shamefull to brand others as Gema and Kamatusa while the citizens of Nyanza all under the odingaism.Talk of how you will move Kenya forward do not tell us about tribal outfits or hate.

    Tell that to Kibaki who stole the election victory from Raila the Luos are free if you know their history.
    Imagine winning in only one province out of eight leave alone the number of MPs remember those APs who were
    slaughtered in Nyanza and Rift Valley who were sent as state guests to rig the election do not fool Kenyans
    Kibaki planned to rob election victory from ODM. Steal money, land and election and have everything run by his 
    own community unacceptable.

    Luos are more democratic than any part of the country,consider,it is only in nyanza were you cant find people who served in Kenyatta gov.They were plenty in kibaki gov including kibaki himself,Karume,Michuki etc.Kibaki has been MP for othaya before i was born,but of course they are dying….Luo Nyanza has the highest turonover of MPS in the country,only 5 mps out 23  retained their seat in the previous election…between the young luo mps nd the central octegenerians who are progressive!
