Nicki Minaj has revealed she will be making an important announcement on Thursday, July 8, via Instagram Live. Now, her fans cannot contain their excitement as they speculate what the surprise could be.

The rapper's last album was 2018’s ‘Queen'. She took to Twitter on Tuesday, July 6, to say there was “something I URGENTLY need to share w/you guys," adding that she will make the big reveal on her Instagram at 10.30 pm EST and promising she "won't be late". “In fact, I’ll be early. This is VERY VERY VERY IMPORTANT. Love you guys so much,” Minaj concluded her message, sparking a wave of curiosity on what the news will entail.

This comes amid reports that a new collaborative effort from Minaj and Drake could be in the works. The 'God's Plan' hitmaker took to Instagram to share a photo of himself sporting a YMCMB hoodie and a shot at Minaj’s studio, which showed pink neon lights that spell out “NICKI.” His post came shortly after the 'Anaconda' hitmaker called on her followers, dubbed the 'Barbz', to stay tuned to her Instagram on Thursday night for the announcement.

Fans couldn't contain their excitement in anticipation for Minaj's big reveal, inundating social media with speculation and sparking the trend 'NICKI DAY IS COMING' on Twitter.

"If you’re a REAL BARB who’s READY for tomorrow, reply 3x with NICKI DAY IS COMING!!!! SWITCH IT" one fan tweeted. "Good morning loves! NICKI DAY has arrived! @NickiMinaj Have been excitedly counting down the hours and am ready to support all of what’s to come. The anticipation and excitement is real today! NICKI DAY IS COMING," another chimed in.

"THIS IS NOT A DRILL, NICKI DAY IS COMING. I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DRILL," a third fan quipped, sharing a funny gif alongside. "Barbz really have Nicki Day is Coming trending 24 hours before Nicki announcement the power that holds," a fourth joked, referring to the ensuing trend on Twitter.

"Nicki minaj x rihanna nicki minaj x beyoncé nicki minaj x ariana grande nicki minaj x doja cat nicki minaj x karol g nicki minaj x the weeknd nicki minaj x drake nicki minaj x lil wayne nicki minaj x maluma nicki minaj x travis scott nicki minaj x bad bunny nicki minaj x j cole," another fan speculated. "The streets are saying it’s a Nicki and Ariana collab album what? Nicki day is coming," another wondered.







It's worth noting that Minaj's last solo single was 'Yikes' released in 2020. She recently returned to the spotlight with a re-release of her 2009 mixtape ‘Beam Me Up Scotty’, which reportedly features a new track 'Seeing Green' with her Young Money crewmates Lil Wayne and Drake.

Rival rapper Lil Kim said in June that she would be totally in for a 'VERZUZ' battle against Nicki Minaj. The two rap artists have reportedly been engaged in a longstanding feud since the early days of Minaj's career. The bitterness began in 2007 when Minaj was accused of copying artwork for her debut mixtape ‘Playtime Is Over’ from Kim’s debut album ‘Hard Core'.

Ever since, the duo has continued to exchange jabs, with Kim claiming Minaj wasn’t recognizing those who paved the way for her in the music industry. Minaj responded to Kim in a 2010 interview, calling the 'Lady Marmalade' hitmaker a "sore loser."
