Nicki Minaj "The Pinkprint" Release Date, Standard, Deluxe Cover Art, Tracklist & Album Stream

UPDATE #6: The stream of Nicki Minaj's "The Pinkprint" album has been released.

Nicki Minaj is slated to release her The Pinkprint album November 28, according to Billboard.

The follow-up to 2012’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded will likely feature the singles “Pills N Potions” and “Anaconda.” The former peaked at #7 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, while the latter is the #2 cut on the Billboard Hot 100.

In November, the YMCMB rapper discussed working on The Pinkprint.

"I already started, and I'm going home, actually tomorrow to really start," she said at the time. "Like, I'm taking two months to just lock in. So I'm really excited, and the people that I have been working with now have been people that I haven't worked with before, so it's like they're bringing a new sound to the album that I've never experimented with.”

Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded spawned hit singles "Beez in the Trap” and “Starships."

    120k first week slow roll to a gold album US she may do gold overseas I can see plat but no more then a mil

    I see she had to add another bonus Drake song to try save this inevitable flop.

  • Fuck Meek Mill

    who da fuck puts meek fucking mill on not 1 but 2 different songs??? Ross dont even get down like that and he signed the nigga!

  • pete

    TOO MANY SONGS…..BUT I WOULD LOVE TO LICK THIS BITCHES ASSHOLE CLEAN

  • DRED

    ok i was really looking forward to this album until She released only......with recycled features....then she puts meek mill on 2 songs like what the fuck?..no jay no Andre 3000 no Street Niggaz etc she gonna go gold....thats obvious but i dont see her goin plat ...she can kiss that dream goodbye.

    • Mike

      she had to re-release pink friday roman reloaded 3 times to go platinum. the regular album, deluxe edition, and some super duper stupid deluxe edition

    • smh

      @MIA, her 2nd album did not go plat, get your facts in order. andre is legendary status, it's always nice to have him on a track as he was on ross' mastermind album. and how can you say jay hasnt released anything when his album came out last year. and he has been on both ross' albums, bey album, and jeezy album, so he stays busy with the 16s. and...her album is not going platinum. why you ask? that's easy. believe it or not, right now, iggy is bigger than nicki and iggy is just approaching gold or will be gold within the next six months or so. i hope something happens and she does go plat, but she will not.

    • derone

      fuck nicki and errybody that love her

    • Mia

      This comment is very dumb. The Pinkprint is highly anticipated, more than her other albums (that both went platinum) & her album is already top 5 on iTunes from pre orders alone & was just put on iTunes last night. Already #1 AND #2 on Best Buy & #2 Target, so to say it wont go platinum is a little delusional, especially saying it because Jay Z or Andre 3000 isn't featured. No one even checks for Andre so how would he impact sales & Jay hasn't been releasing anything. However, Queen BEY is on the album. Your features don't determine your sales.

  • RUFF

    So much for no features. Nicki said that about Roman Reloaded.

    • Danny Bard

      She never said no features. She said she was doing her songs without features FIRST and then adding them later if she finds them to be appropriate.

  • Robert'sVision

    she will probably do 100,000 max...and thats only because she has Chris Brown and Ariana featured on the album..why is meek mill on 2 songs?, thats means 2 songs full of hollering all over the songs..LOL

    • Mia

      She'll do way more than 100K ... Do you not know how highly anticipated this album is? More than Roman Reloaded which did 253K & surpassing Pink Friday which did 375K first week. The album was just put on iTunes for pre orders yesterday & is already top 5 w/ still a week & a half of pre order sells to go + that full first week of Dec. 15 when the album is released

    She pushed it back because Eminem and Iggy are both releasing albums that day she's afraid of the competition and knows damn well she can't outsell them both. Iggy yes, but not Eminem, she wants a #1 that bad.

    • K Dor Dot Dot

      She probably could. That Shady release has no singles, and its reception is mediocre at best. Nicki is still making pop music with more exposure and giving the people what they want and expect from her, Eminem is going super technical to a very lukewarm response. The only positive thing I've heard from that Shady release is the "Lose Yourself" demo.

      Wrong. Nicki pushed her album back because it had no buzz and she was afraid of getting murdered by Shady Records.

      YMCMB and MMG have a deeper respect for each other than your dumbass would understand. Nicki pushed her album back to give rozay his shine in the spotlight. She didn't do this for shady records (not fully eminem BTW) as she can murder them in opening week sales.

    The album has no buzz, despite the attention the second single got. I think it will do about 150k first week because of her fanbase, but it's not going to go gold. I'm not impressed

    Rap Critic Reviews: "Anaconda" by Nicki Minaj So, for a while on the internet, THIS was controversial. Not the song itself, not any actual music or lyrics that people heard and objected to. Just this: Nicki Minaj's butt. People were up in arms apparently, declaring that it's Not safe for work ,and that it's too racy, to the point where I couldn't help but feel that the reaction to this cover was somewhat planned, like they planted articles drawing attention to the cover art. I mean, it HAS to be, right? Just to have her fans rally around her in support, saying, "Eff the haters you go girl! Show off your natural Black beauty that has obviously been digitally lightened and augmented for the main purpose of looking attractive to an audience of men who couldn't give a damn about her artistic integrity Grrrl power! But for real, is anyone ACTUALLY offended by this? Is this new? Are we really shocked by Nicki Minaj using sexuality to sell her music? I mean, call me a hipster, but I was through with this last year after the whole thing about: "BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS BOOBS, LOTTA BOOOOOBS" Yeah, after a line like that, you're no longer actively trying to be respected as a rapper. And besides, looking back at it (*ahem* no pun intended), she's ALWAYS been about using sexuality for fame. Remember this picture? Yeah, that's when she STARTED getting popular. In fact, remember that whole "I may or may not be bisexual" nonsense, where she was tapping into the mental struggle that many young teenagers go through with their sexual identity, and it was obvious that her PR people made her push that persona for the dual purpose of A, gaining the following of sexually questioning young adults and B: turning the heads of men who like the idea of a girl being into chicks but still totally wanting the D? Yeah, it's always been about gimmicks to some extent. Hell, she was giving damned lap dances on stage during her tours. But if I were to play Devil's advocate, and try to validate these claims that THIS is the cover that "went too far", I'd probably wager that it relates to the way she is blatantly presented, the fact that, in this cover, she is not coming to you as a rapper, she is coming to you as her butt. In this picture, she is not the individual Nicki Minaj anymore, she is just another one of the millions of pictures of eye candy showing us their backsides, because she's just another video ho, and we all know the only thing we REALLY want to see is your ass, Nicki. So stop talking, face the front of your body away from me, and show me the TRUE reason we give a damn about you. Thing is, though, this visual of her depersonalizing herself and just being another ass for us to look at that's not new either. In fact, I remember having that exact feeling when I saw her in the "Ass" video. THAT was the first time I felt like something was wrong. I mean, I know most video's will have a female rapper being sexualized, but it's usually a special sexualization, where you can tell that we're supposed to be focusing on the personality of the rapper in question. Here, in this elongated segment of her shaking her ass, there was nothing unique about her, it was face away from the camera, ass out, just another video ho in the shoot. So, even in the aspect of her being treated as run of the mill sex candy, this is NOT new. Actually, this is pretty tame. In fact, when I first saw this, I wasn't even concerned with her ass, the first question I had was, "Why the hell is the song called "Anaconda"?" What could a song called "Anaconda" possibly be about? My Anaconda don't My Anaconda don't... My Anaconda don't want none unless you got buns hun Oh It's interesting that it samples "Baby Got Back", however, I don't like when people sample songs that were already proven to be number one hits, especially so liberally. Now, I've heard a lot of feminists championing the sample of this song, claiming that Nicki's "taking back the song for women", but dude, no, She just ripped off a well-known "shake your booty" song to make her own "shake your booty" song. And I'm not usually one to call a song a rip-off when it's sampling another song, because a lot of songs use sampling to enhance a certain sound that they liked in the original work, and I can get with that. With this? Nothing is done with the beatwork that enhances the music, they just layer annoying, unnecessary sounds over the sample so much, it makes you just want to go listen to the original. All of these sounds just get on my nerves *bell ringing* Oh my gosh, look at her butt Oh my gosh, look at her butt "Little In the middle, but she got much back *layered over "Oh my God, look at her butt"* *moan, DAMN* And not to mention the most annoying sound they use on the track: nicki Minaj *she laughs annoyingly* I wasn't exaggerating. Nicki, nothing is that funny. What are you even laughing about? "He LOVES this fat ass!" you sound like a super villain who just hypnotized and trapped someone with your buttcheeks. Is that where the pro-feminist message comes in? But that's near the end of the song, the first part of the song is her telling a couple short stories about guys she used to have sex with, both of whom sold drugs Boy toy named Troy, used to live in Detroit Big dope dealer money, he was getting some coins I let him hit it cause he slang Cocaine Just straight up, no shame, "I let him have sex with me because he deals drugs". And look, I know a lot of rappers embed themselves in the drug culture, and so she aligns herself with it too, because the drug game is cool to everyone nowadays, but my problem is that, she doesn't paint herself as an active agent in any of this drug activity, and yes, the drug dealing business is a shady profession with people of moral ambiguity that you should not look up to, but, with any business man, legal or illegal, there's always the illustrious draw to them, a certain respect for anyone who's worked their way up to where they are, who climbed through the rungs of an industry, no matter what type it was, and has put in work to make a comfortable living for themselves. As a culture, we respect that. We see the wit and intellect behind men like Don Corleone, Walter White, and Frank Lucas, and many rappers want to emulate that lifestyle because of the respect of their hustle. Nicki Minaj, on this track doesn't play the person who worked her way to the top, no, it's quite apparent that she is playing the role of the two-bit, materialistic floozy who bangs her way into the lap of luxury, and, well, you're not SUPPOSED to look up to Daisy Buchanan from the Great Gatsby, you feel me? Now, if she was talking about being the queen pen in this whole thing, and that SHE was the one putting in work, and that she was a sugar momma for some young guy that she used and tossed to the side, I'd be like, okay, you're switchin' it on 'em, and showing that it's no thing for a woman to be in control of things. But this is not that scene. She's portraying the drug dealer's air-headed plaything, right down to the cutesy, child-like voice and seeming dismissiveness of his terrible actions as long as he has a nice house and gives her pretty shoes (He) was in shootouts with the law, but he live in a palace Bought me Alexander McQueen, he was keeping me stylish And, throughout the song, she keeps talking about freaky sex that she has with these guys, which is there to make you see her as a sexually liberated women, and hey, I get it: it's about doing to men what men do to women in rap songs He toss my salad like his name Romaine But then, her supposed female righteousness is quickly followed by her telling him to buy her clothes And when we done, I make him buy me Balmain I'm on some dumb shit The premise here is a straight-forward, "I had sex with him, now he owes me clothing". Now look, I know I'm a man, and as such, I can't be the one to say what ultimately is empowering for women, or even that she HAS to make songs that empower women, but jeez I'm not asking her to be Rosie the Riveter or anything, just to be her own damn woman, or at least portray herself as such. It's not like she isn't a business woman who's been making power moves in the industry, at least I somewhat thought she was, until I hear songs like this where she talks about still being reliant on men. This just feels lame and ultimately pandering to a crowd that just wants to hear sexuality as the ONLY way a woman can have any semblance of dominance in the industry Now, maybe I say this because I think the song being sampled is by a male rapper in the early 90's who was at least being controversial with his message: I'm tired of magazines Sayin' flat butts are the thing So Cosmo says you're fat Well I ain't down with that! So I'm lookin' at rock videos Knock-kneeded bimbos walkin' like hoes You can have them bimbos I'll keep my women like Flo Jo No one was really out there in music, saying that black women were a standard of beauty that was to be desired in the mainstream, especially not in music. Of course, the problem with Sir Mix-a-Lot's song is, you can easily say that, for all it's talk of being proud to throw some appreciation toward the female form commonly associated with black women, ultimately, you can easily say that he's still objectifying them, sure they're the women not commonly seen as attractive in a White-dominated world, but it doesn't change the fact that objectification is what's still happening. So here Nicki comes to sample that song, and "take it back for the ladies" as it were, but honestly? Other than the fact that there is indeed a female rapping over Mix-a-Lot's beat, Nicki doesn't REALLY do much to earn that "reclaimer" title that some people seem to want to give her. Come on, guys, just BECAUSE a black woman is the one who gets the mic to talk about female bodies, I don't think that fact in and of itself makes it a female positive piece of art. I'm sayin', when you see those vine videos of girls shaking their asses while their best friend records it, I doubt feminists breathe a sigh of relief when they hear that the person behind the camera is also a girl, because hey, at least it's a woman recording it! Naw, it's still video made for the entertainment and approval of thirsty men. And to me, this song is just sampling "Baby Got Back" as yet another gimmick, trying to turn heads with the 90's nostalgia bomb that is "Baby Got Back". Sorry. Now, so far, I haven't really shown you that many lyrics from the song itself. But for real, that's because there really aren't that many, and the ones that are interesting to talk about are even fewer and farther in between. There are two short verses that barely qualify as short stories, and the second half of each of those verses goes exactly the same. But as expected, there are still a couple of odd lyrics in there... He can tell I ain't missing no meals Come through and fuck 'em in my automobile Let him eat it with his grills And he telling me to chill You want him to eat you out with his grills still in his mouth? *show dirty grill* That can't be hygenic This dude named Michael used to ride motorcycles Dick bigger than a tower, I ain't talking about Eiffel's Well, which tower ARE you talking about, then? Okay, with this lyric, I know what she was TRYING to do, but she kinda messed up with the execution. you see this is a thing in rap that I like to call the "unwordplay", where someone uses a euphemism for something, but instead of directly comparing their play on words with what the wordplay may literally allude to, like, "I'm just kicking' it like a soccer team", they jokingly disassociate the play on words with what you may have expected them to be comparing something to, for instance, "Yeah, we're just kicking' it, but I ain't talking' 'bout a soccer team", the joke being that they're acknowledging the fact that it's a euphemism. The problem here is with the wording, because when she says: Dick bigger than a tower, I ain't talking about Eiffel's It's no longer just about comparing his dick to a tower, it's now about what KIND of tower. It's like she's saying: "Yeah, his dick was as big as a tower but not, like, the EIFFEL tower. I mean, that'd just be ridiculous! No, it was more like, maybe a Lego figurine of the Eiffel tower, if I had to be precise And that's it, as far as lyrics are concerned. After the 2 minute mark of this 4 minute and 49 second video, there are no more new lyrics that aren't just repetitions of the chorus or the bridge, so the second half of this song is just playing different parts of Baby Got Back with annoying sound affects. That and unnecessarily long outro where Nicki just sort of rambles Yeah! This one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the Dude, just end it Fuck the skinny bitches Fuck the skinny bitches in the club Dude, just end it I got a big fat ass-- Dude, even the engineer is trying to cut you off. End the song. END THE FU-- Overall, I gotta give this a 0 out of 5. I was thinking about maybe giving it a 1, because the verses are at least short for how crappy they are, but then Nicki: *laughs* And I just can't imagine actively wanting to listen to all this again. This is bad. It's choppy, annoying, simple to the point of embarrassment, and doesn't respect the audience enough to cut it out before it wears out it's welcome. That sample used for the chorus works for about 30 seconds before you start questioning whether or not the producer actually had any idea what to do with the song other than just play "Baby Got Back" under her vocals, and Nicki is in full on goofy bimbo mode, and just comes across as someone desperate to keep people talking about her, instead of delivering rhymes that anyone can give a shit about. The video included. I mean, before, in her videos, there was at least SOMETHING else going on, Ice motorcycles, crazy costumes, now, it's just that uncomfortable part of the "Ass" video stretched out for 4 minutes trying to justify this poor excuse for a rap song. And what's worse, SO many people keep supporting it because they feel like it's a feminist piece. Ladies and gentlemen: did we watch the same video? Did you guys somehow miss the part where she sprays herself with whip cream and attempts to deep throat a banana? I mean, I know pro-feminist media is hard to find in a mainstream context, but are you guys gonna act like you DIDN'T just hear yet another strip club anthem with yet another music video for men to watch on mute? This video was just another submission to the "male gaze" portfolio, right down to the director of the video and music production credits. Just because a woman's in the front of the scene, doesn't mean this isn't just another product by men, for men. So, can we NOT act like this isn't just more pandering crap to keep her relevant because being a good rapper apparently isn't enough? Good god, you're a household name, yet your label doesn't have nearly enough faith in you as an artist to NOT have you shaking your ass just to keep people watching I'm the Rap Critic, and I'm rethinking my marriage proposal

    This album ain't looking good. Pills N Potions was a boring pop song that could cure insomnia and Anaconda is a shit song that butchers a hip-hop classic.

    It's shit pop. If you didn't notice that a pop song is pop, then you must be slow. Maroon 5 sucks and Adam Levine sounds like he has no balls. I don't hate new artists, I hate shitty artists regardless if they're old or new. How does maroon 5 suck though? You aren't giving me any answers. Adam Levine's high pitched voice is a tribute to disco groups like bee gee.

      No, they're not better than U2. Their stadium tours have been doing fine. They haven't went downhill. None of their albums were pop. How were they pop? Also, the new album rocks.

      Both are far better than U2. Their stadium tours haven't broke even for u2 and they release plenty of albums in the 80's. After Achutang baby though, it was all downhill. They made more and more pop with their recent albums. The latest one suck.

      OneRepublic is a better group than Maroon 5.

      Simple. Generic and shit is Maroon 5's music. Bee Gees didn't influence them. How did U2 fall off in the 80s when that's when their first album was released? They didn't fall off (they rose instead) and they always made rock music, no pop. They're still doing stadium tours around the world that many artists wished they could do and their music continues to sell.

      Define generic and shit in marron 5 terms. Bee Gees DID influence them. U2 fell off after the 80's when they started doing pop albums like Zootopia and Pop. They are now a shadow of their former self.

      It's generic and shit. The Bee Gees didn't influence Maroon 5 at all. U2 still has it in them.

      How is the music shit? Adam yes always has that voice but bee gees influenced their career greatly. U2, on the other hand, pun intended, is losing their Edge.

    People are checking for U2's music. Maroon 5 doesn't make funk music or rock music, it's all pop music and it's all shit. Why do you think Maroon 5 are always categorized as a POP band? NO they they ain't. Maroon 5 music has elements of funk, alternative, dance, and rock in it. How did they sell out? And they were classified as rock until some haters labeled their music pop around the release of overexposed.

      If they are pop, they must be great pop because I barely notice it. Why do you hate them so much huh? Is it because levine was on the voice. Is it because you hate new artists, or is it because they raped your girlfriend?

      No, it's you who's the idiot. You are making up shit. Critics didn't say reggae, hip-hop, R&B, and electronica influence their music, they said it was all pop.

      They do experiment with pop lately but their music is still rock. They even incorporate hiphop and R&B with payphone, Reggae with one more night, electronica with love somebody, and a little pop with map. They are multigenre in music.

      No, they don't "sometimes" incorporate pop into their music, they MAKE pop music. It's not rock. They can be classified as a pop band since pop music is all they make.

      Yes, they are. Maroon 5's music is pop, not rock. They never were classified as rock, they were always pop. Just accept the hard truth that Maroon 5 is a pop band making pop music.

      They both have fake bodies and fake personalities. U2 doesn't make pop music, they make rock music. They're going to release their album for purchase and people will buy it. They didn't force shit. Maroon 5 makes shitty pop. There's no funk or alt-rock in their music, it's just pop music that might as well be solo Adam Levine songs.

      How are they fake? They inspired me, that's for damn sure. Oh and U2 makes more and more pop music. They didn't release the album for purchase because no one would buy it. They had to force it into the accounts against our wills. Maroon 5 makes dope funk music. Their new music is alrernative rock, closer to rock than u2's pop ass music are right now.

    Only reason she going to release it that date is because is right before black Friday. That mean store will sell it for cheaper and cheap people buy cheap things! I guess she not as dumb as she look

  • CBT Entity

    Have to admit, I'm excited about this new album. I think she Minaj could really solidify herself as the best female rapper of all time. She's not quite there yet, but it's a marathon and she'll eventually supplant Lil Kim, who I feel is her immediate target. Google Exclusive Queen Of Age!!! and watch that music video.

      Anaconda ain't making 500k ur crazy...if anything her getting naked has been this albums biggest draw thus far. Anaconda is overall a weak single the visuals are there but that won't sell it. In the end to buy the single most men won't it's not something to listen too at all.. Pills and potions is dope a lot of hope there but her strategy of over playing her body is drowning the quality in that song. Eminem releases same date I predict 200k No eminem I'm saying 300 and that's only if she don't pull no crazy stunts ...she's walking a line where public backlash may wipe out her sells and based on her last album and American idol run..public and mainstream aren't rooting for her the same way they had been for her first record. If I could say one thing to nicki I'd tell her she's as good as she thinks she's is...and it's sad she feels the need to pull lil Kim's play book...why be that when you are lyrical and want to take creative risks...fans will stay ..but the more you strip the more you take away from your own power. It's crazy to me..

      Thats a shady records album , not an eminem one. Without the b4u from other members, its unlikely to move past 150k while nicki could do 500k of the strength of anaconda alone.
