The Barbie is back!

Nicki Minaj is back in the fold with two new singles today! The rap superstar debuted the new tracks during an interview with Beats 1's Zane Lowe, where she opened up about shutting down on social media to work on her album and how she dealt with the feud between her close friend Drake and ex-boyfriend Meek Mill. After The Pinkprint in 2014, we have been patiently waiting another album, and these new singles only entice us more.

Her two singles “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz” are already iconic for multiple reasons. As any Street Fighter fan knows, Chun-Li is the first female fighter introduced the game’s series, plus an overall badass—a very fitting alter-ego for the Queen of Rap. On the other end of the spectrum, “Barbie Tingz” gives us classic Nicki, tearing up her ‘clones’ for copying looks and stealing music, all over an epic '80s rap beat. If you needed any more Nicki today, she also has a feature on Young Thug’s “Anybody”, which also dropped today. All we need is one more cryptic tweet and we’ll have cracked the code on when her next album will drop. Check out the two new singles below!
