Nicki Minaj made a social media appearance today, marking her return after a period of silence following the birth of her baby boy. Nicki has become a hot topic of discussion in the context of a broader discussion about female rap and its current state, with the general opinion being that the genre is missing Nicki. She surprised fans today by hinting at something happening later this week by sharing two pictures of herself apparently nude in an office setting. “F R I D A Y” was written in the caption, which was followed by an emoji with crossed fingers. Although Barbs and the rest of social media were talking about Nicki’s long-awaited return, others were talking about what happened after Nicki’s long-awaited message.
After an alleged feud between the two superstars, fans found Rihanna was once again following Nicki Minaj. Soon after, it appeared that Nicki had also hit the follow button, causing fans to speculate about a potential collaboration between the two artists. So, what exactly was the source of the rumored beef? Rih Rih was said to have unfollowed Nicki Minaj due to her beef with another rapper. The rapper in question was Remy Ma, and the rumored rivalry lasted a few years, but there were no major episodes that suggested Nicki and Rihanna’s partnership was over. Is it possible that new music from them is on the way?
It’s not out of the realm of possibility, given the two previously collaborated in 2010 for Nicki Minaj’s debut album, “Pink Friday.” But, given that we can’t even get Rihanna to release her own album, I wouldn’t get my hopes up. One thing I do know is that I’m here for all the female unity and I hope we get some fire music soon!
