Twitter – After tantalizing fans with a few cryptic tweets, Nicki Minaj has put an end to the speculation. On Tuesday (April 10), Black Barbie posted the covers of what appear to be two new singles — “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li.”

According to the caption, both songs will arrive at 10 a.m. PST/1 p.m. EST “everywhere.”

Although the self-proclaimed Queen of Rap hasn’t put out a new album since 2014’s The Pinkprint, she’s popped up on multiple singles, including Migos’ “Motorsport” and Yo Gotti’s “Rake It Up.”

Her latest stunt is reminiscent of the #3PackFromParis maneuver she pulled last March, which featured the diss-heavy “No Frauds” with Lil Wayne and Drake.

It’s possible the countdown ended early because the cover art was leaked on a French website and Minaj was forced to announce the news.

Following months of silence, Nicki Minaj emerged on social media seemingly out of nowhere on Sunday (April 8).

The self-proclaimed Queen of Rap pulled a tweet-and-delete with a simple, “4,” leading to widespread speculation she had something on the way. The following day, she doubled down with another cryptic tweet, this time with the number 3. Both tweets were quickly deleted.

Then, Young Thug poured fuel on the fire with a tweet. On Monday night (April 9), the Jeffery rapper followed Minaj’s lead with a “3” tweet of his own. Many are concluding this means a possible collaboration between the two, although Thug also has a song called “Three” with Future.

If Minaj is plotting her return on Friday (April 13), she has an army of people drooling at the thought. Social media has exploded with excitement over the past 24 hours.

Whatever the case, Black Barbie has “liked” a handful of her fans’ anticipatory tweets.

Check out those below.
