Representatives for Minaj are yet to confirm the announcement. However, the fans aren’t convinced. This is mainly because Minaj is known to pull such tactics from time to time.

In 2016, Minaj teased fans with a fruit-inspired album tracklist. This turned out to be fake. 

Furthermore, in recent years, the singer received bad press. This includes her beef with Cardi B and her fans’ constant attacks against people who criticize her online. Also, she came under attack for her recent marriage to Kenneth Petty, who is a registered sex offender and served time in prison for manslaughter.


Minaj is known as one of the most influential female rap artists of all time. Throughout her career, she has received various accolades. This includes six American Music Awards, 11 BET Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards and four Billboard Music Awards.  Also, she won a Billboard Women in Music Rising Star Award and 10 Grammy Award nominations.
