Nicki Minaj stuns on the cover of Vogue before the highly anticipated drop of her fifth studio album, Pink Friday 2. She opens up about grief, motherhood, and reflects on how her adolescence has shaped her today. Over the years, she has undergone personal growth and transformation, yet beneath that evolution, she is still the same artist that she was over a decade ago. The rapper demonstrates a genuine dedication to her craft, as she has a rather meticulous focus on sound, aiming to be fully understood through her music. With the album release date being pushed back twice already, fans will be ecstatic to hear promising insight from her mix engineer: “Imagine a Nicki Minaj greatest hits album, but all the songs are new.” The talented Viki Rutsch took on the set design for the shoot and seamlessly pairs the backdrops with Minaj’s looks.
