After initially planning for a June release, Onika went to social media Thursday (May 24) to announce the unexpected delay.

Last night, Nicki promised to deliver some major news on Thursday.

You guys, after careful consideration, I’ve decided to do my announcement tmrw when most of my fans all around the world are wide awake. A lot of them are asleep right now due to it being like 3 or 4 in the morning in their various countries. Let’s do 3pm EST tomorrow. ♥️you ?
