The rapper's album cover art hit the Internet last week.
It's Barbie, b*tch! With her highly-anticipated debut Pink Friday about a month away, Nicki Minaj gets dolled up on the album's cover. Alarmingly staring at the camera, the Harajuku Barbie takes the pink motif to the extreme, sitting armless on the ground with her elongated legs in a flowing silver corset, pink stilettos, and a stark pink wig.

Originally slated to drop November 23rd, the project was recently speculated to be released a day early.
Nicki Minaj has reportedly moved up the release date of her debut album "Pink Friday." The debut album from Hip-Hop's most popular female emcee will arrive a day early on November 22. This means that Nicki will be going up with Kanye West and his album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," and Jay-Z's "Hits Collection Vol. 1." Although she had been promoting a November 23rd date, she has now decided to release the album the Monday before Black Friday. (Hip Hop Wired)
Last month, the album's single "Right Through Me" leaked on the Internet.
"I had no clue 'Right Through Me' was going to leak," said the song's producer Drew Money. "All I knew about the record was that they were considering it as a single. I went into the studio with Nicki specifically in mind. We've never worked together before but I just knew it would be the right type of record for her...She called me a few days ago and was really excited about the song. Nicki just nailed it, I didn't even have to touch it after she sent it back. It's already playing it on the radio and it hasn't dropped officially. There's only going to be more to come from us."

Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday is scheduled to be released Monday, November 22nd.
