Nicki Minaj Delays Release of Pink Friday 2, Album Now Dropping on Her Birthday

Nicki Minaj has made a pivotal decision to postpone the release of her highly anticipated album, Pink Friday 2. As a result, eager fans must exercise patience as the album’s new drop date is set for Nicki’s 41st birthday, setting the stage for what could be an extraordinary birthday surprise.

‘A Very Special Date’

Nicki Minaj has decided to delay the release of her highly anticipated album, Pink Friday 2. In an Instagram live session with Twitch streamer Kai Cenat, the Queen of Rap revealed that the postponement was due to issues with vinyl records not being ready for the initial release date. 

As a result, her fans will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on the album, which will now drop on December 8, coinciding with Nicki’s 41st birthday. During the live, the “Last Time I Saw You” rapper said:

“Thats my birthday so Kai, it’s a very special date and were weren’t able to get the vinyls for the [November] 17th.” 

The Barbz Speculate

Cenat agreed that she should wait for the album to come out on her birthday so it could be more special. Users on X shared their thoughts on Nicki delaying her album release. 

One user commented, “Pushing back bc vinyls is corny we rather have the album and wait,” and one other user commented, “Thought it was bc of Wayne dropping the same day.”

Interestingly, some fans speculated that the delay might have been influenced by Nicki’s Cash Money labelmate and friend, Lil Wayne. It was recently announced that Lil Wayne will be releasing his joint album, ColleGrove 2, with 2 Chainz on November 17. 

However, there is no official confirmation that this was a factor in Nicki’s decision to push back her album release. Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday 2 will mark her first album release since 2018’s Queen.
