Young Money's Nicki Minaj has made a public promise to announce the title of her forthcoming debut album tonight.
Promising she would make a UStream broadcast once she reached over 1 million Twitter followers, the rapper met her goal over the weekend.
"WOW #TeamMinaj we did it!!! We really did it?!?!?! *pops champagne* 1 MILLION followers!!! Thank u to every single million of u! :-)," she wrote late Sunday (August 1) night.
"Ok u guyz. A promise is a promise. Ustream tomorrow. I'll be announcing the name of the album and much more :-) 11.23.10"
"Not sure of the time but it'll be late in the day. I'll keep u posted! I'm thinking maybe 8pm EST." (Nicki Minaj's Twitter)
Last month, the rapper playfully suggested calling her debut, The Album.
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)
Last spring, Minaj hinted at linking with Grammy-winning producer/rapper Kanye West for the LP.
"I'm probably definitely going to work with Kanye," she revealed in an interview. "On my debut, I worked with Sean Garrett. And probably Swizz Beatz, he's gonna send me something. I like to work with unknown producers as well, so I accept beats from everybody." (Rap-Up)
She originally announced her debut album release via Twitter.
Barbie fans across the world can rejoice. Nicki Minaj's as-yet-untitled debut album will officially hit stores on November 23. The news comes just four days after the Jamaica, Queens rapper took to her twitter account to alert fans about the special day. "Yes. It's time. November 23rd," she wrote last Thursday afternoon. At the time, XXLMag.com spoke to reps for her label at Young Money/Cash Money, and they couldn't confirm the date. But today, they informed us that the date is indeed set in stone. (XXL Mag)
