It’s been almost three years since Nicki Minaj dropped her third studio album, The Pinkprint, but the New York rapper is now gearing up for the release of her next project.

While Minaj has been coy about the album in the past, the rapper opened up to T Magazine in an interview with award-winning author, Roxanne Gay, and revealed some new details. According to Nicki, “sonically,” she knows what the album is going to sound like.

“This album is everything in my life coming full circle and me being truly, genuinely happy,” she said. “It feels almost like a celebration. The last album, The Pinkprint, was almost like my diary, closing the chapter on certain things and not knowing if I was happy or sad about beginning new chapters. I was really writing about feeling unsure. Now, I can tell you guys what happened for the last two years of my life. I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.”

Minaj also said she feels more “free and excited” creating the album and added, “When you start working with a record company, you start thinking you need a bigger sound. I wanted to get back to the place where I wasn’t second-guessing things so much. Sometimes simple is OK.”
