Nicki Minaj’s fans believe a Wireless Festival tweet accidentally confirmed the release window for her new album.
“Brand new album by @NICKIMINAJ soon and a whole lotta BRAND NEW lyrics to memorise [sic]….right before the festival,” the account tweeted.

When asked how they know that the project will be available by July, the account shared a clip from Minaj’s recent appearance on the Late Late Show with James Corden.
“Well, I do know it’s soon, and I do know it’s a lot sooner than it’s ever been, right?” Minaj tells the host. “And I know that it’s coming this year, and I know that it’ll be out before the summertime.”
After releasing a music video for her song, “We Go Up” with Fivio Foreign on Tuesday, Minaj jokingly threatened to “significantly” delay the album.
“If y’all don’t do what needs to be done with the #WeGoUpVideo I will significantly and I DO mean significantly…delay the…the…the…oh what’s the word… oh! the album,” she tweeted. “That’s right. *sighs* the album *devil wears Prada Meryl Streep voice*.”
