Nicki Minaj looks set to return to the spotlight later this week for the first time since giving birth to her baby boy.
The Starships rapper sent fans into a frenzy on Monday when she shared a cryptic post on social media.
Alongside the caption ‘Friday’ with a fingers crossed emoji, Nicki is seen posing nude in a very pink photoshoot and surrounded by Chanel props.
The 38-year-old sits on the edge of a desk with her hair styled in a tall ponytail and covering her modesty with a pair of pink heart-shaped cushions. As well as being blinged out in expensive jewellery, Nicki’s look is finished off with a pair of on-trend Crocs.
Speculating over her return, one fan commented: ‘OMG shes coming Barbz get ready.’
Another quipped: ‘Barbz we survived the hiatus.’
One fan declared: ‘Nicki is back and she isn’t playing!’
R&B singer Kehlani also wrote: ‘Lets goooo,’ leading many to speculate whether she’s recorded a collaboration with the rapper.
‘OMG ur on the album,’ one Barb predicted.
Another chimed in: ‘Yall better collab damnit! Two of my favs on the same song needs to happen.’
It’s been three years since Nicki released her most recent album, 2018’s Queen, which reached number two on the US Billboard 200 chart.
Last year, she teamed up with Tekashi 6ix9ine on the number one single Trollz and also appeared on the track What That Speed Bout!? with Mike Will Made It and YoungBoy NBA.
The rapper hasn’t revealed his name yet but he’s certainly adorable as she shared a few pics of the eight-month-old last year.
During her hiatus, Nicki has had to deal with heartbreak following the death of her father Robert Maraj, who was killed in a suspected hit and run in February.
