On Thursday (April 12), rapper Nicki Minaj premiered two new tracks: “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz.” Barbz have dubbed this day “Nicki Day” in honor of the new music.
Minaj first took to Twitter on April 10 to announce “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li” and share their artwork — the first time she tweeted this year.

Earlier on Thursday, Minaj’s label, Young Money, tweeted that there would be more music after her live interview on Beats 1 Radio with Zane Lowe. The tweet said that Minaj would premiere the Young Thug-assisted “Hear No Evil” with release time to be announced. She clarified that the “record with Thug actually comes out an hour later” — making for three new tracks all in the span of a few hours.
