Nicki Minaj teased her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded by releasing her buzz single “Roman in Moscow” on Friday. Speaking with MTV News soon thereafter, the Harajuku Barbie elaborated on the track, on which she raps from the perspective of her alter ego Roman Zolanski.
“‘Roman in Moscow’ is like a teaser to Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, which will drop on Valentine’s Day. When I say it’s a teaser, it’s like a trailer to the movie, it’s like setting the stage and I just wanted to touch the surface. It’s the wackest thing on [the album].”
Nicki, who is nominated four times at the 2012 Grammy Awards, said that a video will be shot for the record “real soon” while explaining Roman’s recent hiatus.
“Well, he was there [in Moscow] secretly because [alter ego] Martha wanted him to go there, so they put him in this thing with monks and nuns; they were trying to rehabilitate him. But I can’t tell exactly what happened, you will just see it in the video format, but let’s just say he got out of there.”
