Nicki broke the news to her fans Sunday (July 27) via photo-sharing social network Instagram.
"My darlingz, I've pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will understand why before the week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu," Minaj captioned to a photo of herself July 27. (Nicki Minaj's Instagram)Last week, Minaj resorted to dealing with some critics going after her neck over a steamy "Anaconda" single cover art reveal.
The rap diva took to Instagram to post a series of photos of models with their butts to the camera to illustrate the double standards in beauty. She wrote "acceptable" next to racy images of Kate Upton and Nina Agdal posing in swimsuits. "Angelic. Acceptable. Lol," she said of a Sports Illustrated cover with Agdal, Lily Aldridge, and Chrissy Teigen. To make her point, she then reposted her "Anaconda" cover art, which shows her squatting down in a G-string. She captioned the risqué photo "UNACCEPTABLE." (Rap-Up)Click to Hear

Some of Nicki's Barbz went on the attack, hurling insults at Teigen. "Nicki Minaj gets King magazine covers & @chrissyteigen can only get sports illustrated she a bum hoe," tweeted one. "I just landed and I have a nicki minaj fans going absolutely batshit on me. No idea why," wrote Teigen. (Rap-Up)Minaj treated diehard fans to her cover art, which features herself in a hot pink g-string, Wednesday (July 23) night.
Can somebody please wipe me down? Nicki Minaj's new "Anaconda" cover art just turned the temperature up to boiling point. The Young Money rapper has been teasing a "surprise" for her Barbz on Twitter since yesterday, and I was expecting a new single, or a snippet of a new single, but somehow just the cover art for a new single managed to top an actual song. Now, this isn't the first time that we've seen Nicki in this rare squat position, but it just seems to get better every time. That poor g-string never had a chance. (MTV)
