The road to Nicki Minaj's Pink Friday 2 album is clear, and she just released her very first song leading up to the project: "Last Time I Saw You."

Nicki Minaj Drops a Brand New Track

On Friday (Sept. 1), Nicki Minaj dropped her new single, "Last Time I Saw You." The track, produced by TooDope, Frankie Bash, Alex Bak, ATL Jacob and Hendrix Smoke, is heavily more pop than the songs she's dropped over the last year. On the song, the Queen Barbz pines about an unrequited love that she wishes would have come to fruition.

"You'd always be in attendance/No flights but always attеndant/Handwritten letter you pеnned it/Them nights we wish never ended/Those rules that we wish we bended/Heartbreak that we never mended/Those messages we unsended/Best friends we somehow unfriended," she raps.

Initially, Nicki teased the hip-pop track on her Instagram Live during a chat session on Aug. 14. She would later released a one-minute snippet on her TikTok page to keep the buzz going.

"Last Time I Saw You" is expected to appear on Nicki's upcoming album Pink Friday 2, due Nov. 17.

This Is Nicki's Second Solo Single This Year

This is Nicki Minaj's second solo single that she dropped this year. In March, the 40-year-old rapper released "Red Ruby Da Sleeze," a tune which samples Lumidee's 2003 summer hit "Never Leave You (Uh-Oh)." On the song, the New York rhymer raps as her alter ego, Chun-Li, whom she first introduced in her 2018 music video for "Chun-Li." Nicki's alter ego is known to her fans as her most sinister persona, but is also well-respected for her lyrical skills and venomous bars.

This past summer, Nicki and Ice Spice linked up to release their collaborative single "Barbie World" for Barbie: The Album, which is the soundtrack to the Barbie movie. It marked the second pairing for the two artists, following their top-10 Billboard Hot 100 hit "Princess Diana Remix."
