PINK FRIDAY Nostalgia
In 2010, Nicki Minaj changed the game for so many female rappers after dropping her debut album Pink Friday. We were in awe on Monday as she blessed our news feed with pink aesthetics.

On Tuesday, just a day after her grand return, Nicki posed for the Gram again showing everyone that she’s still that chick! With a cryptic message in her caption, everyone began to speculate a new single.
Things got a little more interesting when fans pointed out Rihanna and Nicki were following one another on Instagram once again. The fashion killa’ and everyone’s favorite bad girl, Rih, also posted a stunning picture rocking the same shoes as Nicki. We were hoping for a collab but we are happy to see the two slaying together.
