Prior to the official release of “Bussin,” fans heard a snippet of the track at the end of the “Do We Have a Problem?” video. On Monday (February 7th), Nicki announced the track by alluding to Gunna’s viral hit “pushin P.” She tweeted, “Next week we pushin B for Bussin btch WTF IS GOOD!?!? !?!?”
With the release of “Bussin” and “Do We Have a Problem?,” Nicki is in full album promotion mode. During an appearance on the Late Late Show, she revealed the LP will be released “before summertime.”
And in an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, the rapper said fans should be ready for a torrent of new material. “That’s why I started putting out music. Like I said before, from now on, every Friday, it will be called Pink Friday,” she explained. “I do have a lot of surprises lined up for the fans leading up to the album, but we want to definitely get the album out there quickly.”
Minaj last released Queen in 2018. Last year, she brought her breakout 2009 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty to streaming services and hopped on BIA’s remix of “Whole Lotta Money.” Meanwhile, Lil Baby teamed up with Lil Durk last year for their collaborative album, The Voice of the Heroes. He also contributed to Kanye West’s Donda and Drake’s Certified Lover Boy.
