Nicki Minaj Confirms Relationship Status and New Music for 2017

Nicki Minaj took to Twitter Thursday morning (Jan. 5), revealing some news about her love life and plans to bless the music world with new material in the new year.

“To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon," she tweeted. "Have a blessed New Year. Love u.” Minaj had previously been dating Meek Mill.

It seems Minaj's breakup won't have any affect on her success, though. Just last month Minaj landed her 70th hit on the Hot 100 charts -- tying with Taylor Swift for the second most among women -- with her song “Black Barbies.”

Despite not dropping an album in 2016, Minaj was largely present in many forms: releasing her own mobile game “Nicki Minaj: The Empire,” appearing in Barbershop: The Next Cut, and doing guest vocals on multiple tracks, such as Ariana Grande’s “Side To Side” which peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100.
