On Sunday (April 8), Nicki Minaj made her return to Twitter with a now-deleted tweet that simply read, "4." The rapper then followed her Sunday tweet with another post on Monday (April 9) that featured "3," leading many fans to believe The Pinkprint rapper is counting something down.

Like her tweet from Sunday, Minaj's Monday post was also deleted but not before fans could come up with their own theories. "My nerves are shot rnnnnn mannnn literally 😭😭😭😭😭 my week couldn’t get any better with all this! Missed you odeee 💕💕💕 @NICKIMINAJ #NickiMinaj #3Nicki #SheComing," tweeted one person.

Young Thug also added fuel to the fire, tweeting a "3" a few hours after Minaj's original tweet and then posting a photo of a 3 tattoo on his Instagram Story. "Same 3 nicki talmbout," the caption reads.

Fans of the New York rapper have been waiting more than a year for new solo music from Nicki, who last dropped singles in March 2017 when she released "Changed It," "No Frauds" and "Regret in Your Tears." As for an album, its been over three years since she released The Pinkprint.

While Minaj has stayed busy by teaming up with Migos and Cardi B on "MotorSport" and creating an unreleased verse for Tory Lanez's "Shooters," the rapper is reportedly working with Mike Will Made-It on new music. After sharing a Mercedes commercial which features an appearance from Nicki in the ad, the producer wrote on Twitter, "I guess Me & Nicki got 🔥 otw...#theyearoftheEar."
