Nicki Minaj Releases “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” with New Album On The Way


If you, like me, have recently found yourself with more bossy bars than usual in rotation, I’m willing to bet that’s thanks to all the ladies paving their respective lanes in the genre. The latest comes from none other than the Head Barbie in Charge, Nicki Minaj. The Queens, NY native shared two tracks yesterday – “Barbie Tingz” a Classic Hip Hop, diss-style track and “Chun-Li,” a summery, “big mood” anthem for all the boss babes.

Nicki Minaj premiered the tracks during an interview on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show where she discussed a documentary that’s on the way and the reason for her social media hiatus being rooted in the need to get in a better creative space for her next project which she described as “the best album I’ve ever in my life created.” Although she’s been working on the album since December, she admits some tracks were written a year and a half ago, noting, “That’s important to know.” No details on the album’s title or release date were shared.

Vintage Nicki returns again in “Barbie Tingz” where she spits venomous verses about essentially, inspiring much of what others in industry do from style to music. “Chun-Li” is a calm, and still aggressive, ego-driven brag about status and luxury. Listen to both J Reid Da Producer tracks below.
