With the massive success of “Beam Me Up Scotty,” fans also hope that Nicki releases a new album this year as well. It’s been quite a while since this happened as the last time she put one out was back in August 2018. This was “Queen” as it debuted at number two on the Billboard 200. It was led by hit singles such as “Barbie Dreams” and “Chun-Li.” Since 2019, the demand has been sky-high for a new album from Nicki.
Nicki Has Been Showing Impressive Fashion Looks Lately As Well
In addition to new music being released along with throwback records, Nicki has been trending on social media for her fashion looks. Nicki returned to social media after a two-month hiatus on May 10 and posted multiple photos of her wearing pink Crocs. This soon increased demand for Crocs in this color as sales increased for the brand by 4,900%. Last week, Nicki also sported a pair of black Crocs with a Chanel logo customized on it. At this point, many wonder if a Crocs endorsement deal is on the way or is actually being finalized.
