Festival season might be over but there’s no harm in thinking ahead to Coachella 2024! Coachella is the largest musical festival in the United States so headlining the festival is a big career move for artists. 2023 is more than halfway over and hip-hop and R&B has some solid projects coming up in the last few months.
Nicki Minaj is set to debut her fifth studio album in November. She previously teased that it would be ready in October but explained her reasoning behind the delay in June.
Nicki Minaj Delays Album
“Dear Barbz,” Nicki began in the caption of the post addressing her fanbase. “I’ve been trying to find the right time to tell you this for a few days. Due to some really exciting news that I’ll share with you guys @ a later time, I’ve shifted the album date just a tad bit. Trust me, it’ll be WELL WORTH THE WAIT…but since I AM shifting the date just a tad, I’d like to give you guys a tiny SIP of some more album tea so that I don’t have to get cussed out [sad emoji] so…here it goes: [pink bow emoji] MY NEW ALBUM WILL BE RELEASED ON 11.17.23.”
“I love you guys so much,” she continued. “I am so grateful for the years of support & love you guys have given me. At times maybe I didn’t even deserve all that you have poured into me. Nonetheless, you. will. love. this. album. I will give tour deets closer to that time, but obviously the tour will start around the first quarter of 2024. I’ll also share the REAL album cover at a later date.”
Nicki’s last full-length album was Queen in August 2018. Pink Friday 2 is named after her debut studio album Pink Friday which was released in 2010.
Already this year, Nicki has given us quality collabs such as “Barbie World” and “Princess Diana (Remix)” with Ice Spice, “Endless Fashion,” with Lil Uzi Vert, and many more.
Next year, Coachella will be held on April 12-14 for the first weekend and April 19-21 for the second weekend. While all of these artists have performed at Coachella, many have never headlined. Take a look at some hip-hop and R&B prospects for Coachella 2024:
