Nicki Minaj has promised fans she is going to debut a never-heard-before song, the lead track from her forthcoming album.
The ‘Anaconda’ rapper is one of the special guests on the US show, which will be hosted by Tina Fey, on May , and she’s been teasing fans that she will be performing one of her recently released singles, as well as the lead track from her forthcoming album.
Nicki said : “I’ll perform a song you never heard b4. My fave on the album. plus my second song. You can prob guess what that’s gonna be.”
She hyped the upcoming arena tour as a must-see event, as it will mark her first extended outing since she wrapped up The Pinkprint Tour in early 2016.
Replying to a fan who asked if the unheard track was number seven on the track-list, she replied: “Track 1.”
The 35-year-old star recently dropped two new singles from her forthcoming record, ‘Chun-Li’ and ‘Barbie Tingz’, and she recently let slip that she is planning a tour.
Replying to a fan, she wrote: “I miss you guys. Thank you to all of you. Creatively, I’ve never felt better.
“I’ll be able to share soon & see u guys on tour. I saw my official tour schedule today.”
Speaking last 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.The rapper said she’ll perform the opening track, which she called her “fave on the album,” on the SNL season finale, where she’ll star alongside host Tina Fey.
The success of “Chun-Li” follows a relatively dormant commercial period for Minaj, who did not make a splash when she released three simultaneous singles.
The New York MC confirmed she’s already finalized the tour dates and will hit the United States first before visiting the rest of the globe.
“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 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.”
