Update: Nicki Minaj Nov. 23 Album Date Sticks, Label Rep Confirms

Barbie fans across the world can rejoice. Nicki Minaj’s as-yet-untitled debut album will officially hit stores on November 23.

The news comes just four days after the Jamaica, Queens rapper took to her twitter account to alert fans about the special day. “Yes. It’s time. November 23rd,” she wrote last Thursday afternoon. At the time, spoke to a rep for her label Young Money/Cash Money, and they didn’t confirm the date. But today, they informed us that the date is indeed set in stone.

The date, which comes just two days before Thanksgiving, also falls on one of the biggest shopping weeks in America (black Friday is three days later).

In related news, reports recently surfaced that Nicki’s YM leader, Lil Wayne would be dropping an EP around his birthday in September. The CM/YM rep could not confirm those plans for XXL, but she did say that next up for the label, after Nicki, are discs by Bow Wow and Lil Twist. —Elan Mancini
