Nicki Minaj Promises That Her Debut Album Will Be Out This Year: ”They’re Gonna Get To Know Onika, No One Knows Onika”


Video Inside

Mtv.com: Nicki Minaj’s style is full of theatrical flourishes, from her candy-colored wigs to the animated faces she makes when she spits her rhymes. But the Young Money MC said her debut will introduce audiences to the woman behind the persona.

“The album is coming along just spectacular,” Minaj told MTV News. “I been doing a lot of work with Swizz [Beatz], and the stuff that we been coming upon is magical. When people hear the album, they’re going to get to know Onika [her birth name is Onika Maraj]. And no one knows Onika. I really didn’t think I would be this excited about the songs that I’m coming up with. I’m really, really proud.”

The Lil Wayne protégé promised that her album would arrive before the year ends but said she’s in no rush.

So far, she’s released the song “Massive Attack,” and the rapper is currently prepping the video for “Your Love,” an accidental single that landed atop the Billboard Rap Songs chart.

In addition to opening up about her life, Nicki Minaj will be introducing another alter ego on the project: Roman Zolanski. But the animated femcee was hush on any details about that.

“I’m gonna let the album do that,” she demurred. “As of now, you’ll know Nicki and you’ll know Roman, my crazy alter ego Roman Zolanski. But you’ll meet Onika before the year ends.”
