Nicki Minaj has revealed that her new album has “absolutely no boundaries”.
The rapper claimed that her second studio record Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded cannot be categorised into a certain genre or sound.
Asked whether there was more singing or rapping on the album, Minaj told Vibe magazine: “I’m not going to break my album down based on percentage of rap and singing.
“What it is, is amazing music. And what it is, is music that I created and I had a blast making and it’s going to be very free and exhilarating.”
Talking about the direction of her sound, she added: “It’s going in a very free, exhilarating direction in terms of me owning who I am and me enjoying the process of making music.
“I think that when you get the album you’ll feel as if I had absolutely no boundaries. That’s probably the best way to explain it so that you understand. The album just has no boundaries. The album cannot be boxed in.”
Questioned on whether she had taken a more poppier approach, Minaj replied: “You know what, I cannot break my album down into how the normal person like yourself would break an album down and say, well this is rap and this is pop.
“There is no rap or pop for me. It’s Nicki Minaj. It’s one collective body of amazing work. You’ll feel it. I don’t like the labels because sometimes just by one word or one label, a person can take that the wrong way and apply a negative spin to that.”
Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded will be released in the UK on April 2 and the US on April 3.
