Sounds like the name of Nicki Minaj's fifth studio has been "locked in."

The "Chun-Li" rapper teased as much Friday night (June 11) amid the ongoing buzz surrounding the New York native's long-awaited arrival of her follow-up to 2018's Queen.

While speaking with fans following the release of her Polo G collaboration "For the Love of New York," one anxious fan on Twitter asked: "What genres will the new album have and anything you can tell us about it? @NICKIMINAJ #ForTheLoveOfNewYork."

The “Super Bass“ musician responded, "Trust me, I see all the album questions. When the time is right, you’ll get the answers to all your questions. Today is about #ForTheLoveOfNewYork I may have officially locked in on the album name tho. As of 2 days ago."

This is one of the few hints we’ve received of Minaj’s upcoming album, her first in three years.

To tide Barbz over, she re-released her 2009 mixtape, Beam Me Up Scotty, with several new tracks including “Fractions,” “Seeing Green” featuring Drake and Lil Wayne, and a remix version of Skillibeng’s 2020 dancehall track “Crocodile Teeth.”

The reissue pulled off some impressive feats in its waking, having debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, becoming the highest-debuting female rap mixtape in the chart’s history.
