It's been more than 2 years since the release of "The Pinkprint", and fans have been craving another set from Nicki Minaj. While details about her much-anticipated fourth album remain sparse, the 35-year-old femcee continues giving some subtle hints at her next project.

In her guest verse on Major Lazer's "Run Up", the Young Money queen raps that "she's about to drop an album." Adding fuel to the speculation, she recently revealed the initials of her next album in a now-deleted tweet. "MYOB," so she responded to a fan who asked for the initials. As for the album's collaborators, DJ Mustard said that he was working with Nicki on new records. "I heard that Nicki had liked the song and I'd been working with her on some other stuff for her stuff," said the producer. "I don't know when it's coming out or what's going to be on it but we was working on some stuff for us together..."

While the newly single raptress has been busy developing a single-camera comedy television series called "Nicki", she still has time to work on her upcoming album. She wants to take some time to reflect upon the successes and failures of her last album because she thinks that it doesn't do well in the market. "I needed time to hear myself think again," she told Nylon magazine earlier this year, "because where I left off with 'The Pinkprint' was a little bit emotionally unstable."

In an interview with Hot 97 last October, Nicki revealed that he would do more features before releasing the follow-up to "The Pinkprint". "The album is so freaking epic," she said, "but it's a journey. Before my first album came out, I was on everybody's song." She added, "Right now, I have to complete a few things for other people...What that does, throughout my career, it makes me get back to my fun side and it makes me push my pen."

Even though Nicki doesn't give many details about her next project, she treats her fans to some feature verses on other artists' tracks. She pops up on David Guetta's "Light My Body Up" and Gucci Mane's "Make Love", on which she takes a jab at Remy Ma. In response to Nicki's jab, Remy has released an explosive diss track titled "ShETHER" that finds the Bronx femcee accusing the "Anaconda" rapper of cheating with Trey Songz and PARTYNEXTDOOR when she was still with her ex-boyfriend Meek Mill.

Nicki claps back at Remy by releasing "No Frauds" featuring Drake and Lil Wayne. Produced by Murda Beatz, the song comes fully loaded with hateful lyrics aimed at the "Another One" raptress. In addition to "No Frauds", Minaj delivers two more brand new tracks titled "Regret in Your Tears" and "Changed It" featuring Wayne. The former of which apparently talks about her past relationship with Mill.

Apart from her never-ending feud with Remy, the Barbadian femcee makes another breakthrough in her career by surpassing Aretha Franklin for most Hot 100 songs of any female artist in the history of Billboard. She has beaten Aretha with 76 entries, making the Queen of Soul slide down to No. 2 with 73 entries. Aretha had held the title for most Hot 100 hits among female artists for almost 40 years, from 1977 to 2017.
