The rapper is reportedly set to drop her fourth album this year.
Nicki Minaj sent fans into a frenzy this weekend after posting - and swiftly deleting - a cryptic tweet.
On Sunday night (8th April), the rapper simply tweeted the number '4'. Many fans interpreted this as the number of days until the release of her imminent fourth album.
Others speculated that it was a mere hint that her material is indeed on the way. Either way, Nicki's move got people talking following her lengthy social media silence over the past few months.
While Nicki is yet to address the since-deleted tweet, reports recently claimed that the 'Anaconda' rapper delayed the release of her forthcoming record in an effort to let fellow female MC Cardi B shine.
Nicki was allegedly planning to drop her new album in early April, but sources close to the Cash Money rapper say she refused to overshadow Cardi's moment.

Prior to the release of her album, Cardi appeared to squash rumours of any beef between herself and Minaj, describing it as "really internet made-up."
