Thursday, Jul 29, 2010 11:28PM
Young Money's Nicki Minaj tells fans that the new music leaking on the Internet is not from her highly-anticipated debut album set to drop this fall.
Writing to her nearly 1 million Twitter followers, the "Barbie" denied speculation of an album leak.
"Music recently leaked is NOT off my debut album. Its OLD music. Bless their desperate little hearts :-)," she wrote Thursday (July 29) afternoon.
"All the beauty around us. We see it. But don't look. Why? LOOK. Its right before your eyes. When will u STOP and LOOK?"
"The video for "Your Love" will be on iTunes, VEVO and all other partners on 8/5." (Nicki Minaj's Twitter)
Earlier this summer, Minaj's labelmate, Drake, fell victim to online hackers when his Thank Me Later debut leaked online.
"I always said if I had put out an album that was poor quality and music that people didn't enjoy, then I think the leaks would hurt me," Drake said in an interview. "Because a lot of the feedback has been great. The word of mouth, music is something that is to be enjoyed. I think it can help me so, June 15th, I'm still confident." (The Life Files)
Minaj has been contemplating possible album titles as of late.
Nicki's fans will be crying tears of joy when her long-anticipated debut album hits stores. She promises the project will be out before the end of the year, and she's focusing heavily on recording her own songs. "Maybe a few things cooking," Nicki answered with a smile when asked if she has any more guest appearances coming up. "But right now, it's all about the album. November 23. Nothing comes before that." Then Nicki contemplated the title of her project. "Maybe we should call it ...The Album," she ruminated. "Nicki Minaj: The Album," she continued before dismissing the idea. "I don't know, it'll come." (MTV)
Recently, Minaj revealed Black Eyed Peas' frontman Will.i.am would be involved with the project.
"I don't want to say too much, but I just did some work with will.i.am," Minaj said in an interview. "Just something for my album that I'm really excited about. The album is much more emotional than you anticipate, which is a great thing. And I know women are gonna connect to the album so much. I felt like for so many years I was the girl who did the catchy little raps, and it's time for me now to tell my story, and in telling my story, I'm really telling every girl's story. We all go through the same thing. So the album is gonna feel very personal to every female." (Entertainment Weekly)
