After already releasing eleventy million singles from her feverishly anticipated sophomore album including ‘Stupid Hoe‘ and ‘Starships‘, Nicki Minaj has finally unveiled the album cover for ‘Pink Friday : Roman Reloaded‘ on Twitter, scheduled for release on April 3rd.
I can’t really say I’m feeling this, cuz we already have a Ke$ha for the neon paint and blonde hair don’t we? Where did all that original potty-mouthed fierceness that Nicki Minaj is so famous for go? After a relatively bizarre performance at the 2012 Grammy Awards (where she brought a Pope-esque guy as her date while later getting exorcised on the Grammy stage during her performance of ‘Roman Holiday‘), I was expecting the cover art to be as ferocious/controversial. Oh well.
Thankfully, after her initial few singles released from the album did not exactly hit the mark and were left as buzz/promo singles, her latest extravaganza ‘Starships‘ has been making all the right moves, debuting at # 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week and moving down a notch to # 10 this week. Here’s hoping the album’s packed with the same kinda classic material that made her début album ‘Pink Friday‘ my fave album of 2011.
