Nicki Minaj goes topless while wearing nothing but a thong and an ‘icon’ hat to announce new music release

Nicki Minaj teased the release of new music at midnight on May 13 by sharing some very racy snaps to Instagram. 

The 38-year-old rap queen posed in nothing but a thong and an ‘icon’ hat as she shared topless photos from a hair salon with her 135M followers. 

Teeing up what is sure to be a new summer anthem she captioned the series: ‘New music @ MIDNIGHT. Going LIVE from my BEAUTY ROOM @ 11PM EST. DON’T MISS IT.’

The Super Bass crooner sat posted up in a salon chair with nothing but her hands and extended tresses protecting her modesty. 

And the always eccentric artist adorned her body with many icy diamonds, sporting an oversized ‘Barbie’ pendant around her neck and some hefty anklets. 

She leaned into what is sure to be a very ‘Pink Friday’ with the shoot, as she posed in a striped pink thong and a magenta baseball cap that read ‘icon’ — leaving no room for confusion about the magnitude of her stardom. 

And in a second snap shared she served up some serious attitude as she rested her finger above her lips and shifted her eyes to the side.

Nicki — who has been relatively quiet on social media since January — has been kicking her posts into high gear over the last few days. 

She had first teased that something was brewing on May 10 as she rocked hot pink Crocs and covered her nude frame with furry pillows while writing ‘Friday.’ Her post caused a 4,900 percent spike in the sale of the now trendy footwear in pink, and crashed the retailer’s website. 

Minaj’s latest music releases include the single ‘Yikes’ (which was released in February of last year), and the now certified diamond and four-time platinum song ‘Tusa’ with Colombian singer Karol G, which dropped in 2019. 

And upon Thursday’s social media announcement fans flooded the comment section with compliments and excitement for a new music debut.

Former Disney star Skai Jackson wrote: ‘You are really stepping on necks and it’s only been 3 days!!,’ and Lala Anthony simply commented: ‘WOOOWWWW.’ 

And another wrote ‘U had a baby where?,’ as they marveled over her frame after welcoming her first child with husband Kenneth Petty in September. 

The pair — who wed in 2019 — have chosen not to reveal their son’s name publicly but the Starships singer shared that they almost named him Ninja before she ‘changed it at the last minute.’ 

‘I think l might still change it,’ she shared on her Queen Radio show in January. ‘A lot of people said they liked it, but I said, “Nah.” His name was going to be Ninja…I changed it at the last minute.’  

Despite being relatively private with her personal life she does share glimpses at motherhood on occasion, calling it ‘the most fulfilling job [she’s] ever taken on.’
