The Barbz are excited and have reason to celebrate as their queen, Nicki Minaj, has made her return to social media this week and with good reason. The successful rap star took some time off from IG but has come back, quenching the thirst of her fans (and spectators alike) as she teases and fans continue to speculate on upcoming new music. But as the Barbz assemble in a major way in preparation, they are supporting in other ways as well by purchasing a specific item in one of her latest photos.
The year 2021 has been pretty quiet on the social media front for the “Barbie Dreams” rapper, who is also a new mother. She started off the year with a January 2nd post of her 3-month-old son with her husband Kenneth Petty, which garnered almost 7 million likes on Instagram.
It would not be for another 17 weeks until Nicki would be seen on Instagram again. This time she would post a picture alongside her friend and reality star, Blac Chyna. “Brought out the pink tuhday,” she captioned the photo.
Fans were frenzied when this week, Nicki posted a thirst trap on her Instagram. Sitting atop a pink desk in room decorated with different shades of pink, the rapper dons a high ponytail as she covers her body with two plushy pillows. Captioning her post “F R I D A Y,” her fans immediately surmised that the rapper would be releasing new music this Friday.
If the speculations on music is true, this would be the first since her latest appearance on the Mike Will Made It collaboration, “What That Speed Bout!?” Until then, fans are going crazy over the pair of pink Crocs that she donned in the photo.
According to a report from HotNewHipHop, sales for the pink Crocs have gone up by an astronomical 4,900% since her picture was posted. Just as well, Barbz has been posting receipts to prove that they have secured a pair and await shipment.
Proud fans continued to make her trend on social media as the Crocs site had been shut down due to an overload of traffic. “Let’s unpack how Nicki Minaj wore crocs & made more noise than the girls with birkins,” tweeted a Barb. Another wrote, “Pink Crocs sold out thanks to Nicki Minaj the influencer! Hahaha!”
Nicki’s Barbz are also responsible for her 2018 single, “LLC”, skyrocketing to the #1 position on iTunes, making it her top-selling song of the year.
More fan reactions below. Be sure to stay tuned as we keep you posted on whether this Friday will be another “Pink Friday” because of new Nicki Minaj music.
