If you are a BARB or at least a BARB-hater, you will recall that ‘Queen’ of the Barbz was DANGLING a BIG announcement all yesterday. When PRESSED by the fans, she threatened, playfully another social media hiatus. WELL today, she FINALLY revealed what the big announcement was–an ALBUM delay!
Minaj says, “I love my label, but I’m happy that I’ve always been blessed to have the freedom and the creativity to do what I want when I want how I want it.” She continues, “Trust me, it’s the better choice.” This insinuates that the LABEL may have wanted the June 15th release date. But I have a THEORY… maybe the SINGLES weren’t STRONG enough and she is RETOOLING. That is the BEST hypothesis. I mean, if you look at the charts, ‘Chun Li’ and ‘Barbie Tingz’ are not performing as well as PAST Nicki releases. The CHARTS don’t lie. Not being shady, but it happens.
Here is what Nicki had to say:
Hopefully the NEXT set of singles have a BIGGER impact.
