On Sunday night Nicki Minaj joined Madonna for a performance during the Super Bowl halftime show, and next Sunday night she’ll be at the Grammys, then she’s heading out to perform at the NBA All-Star Game. At her first Grammys performance, Minaj will debut her new single “Roman Holiday,” and the following day she will roll out yet another Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded single, titled “Starships.”
On Monday, February 13, just a day after the Grammy air on TV, Nicki’s “Starships” will premiere on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and make its way to iTunes shortly afterward.
The release of Nicki Minaj’s Hype Williams-directed video for “Stupid Hoe” last month was accompanied by an announcement that her much-anticipated album would be pushed from its original February 14 release date to April 3.
“New Album Date: April 3rd. Pink Friday: ROMAN RELOADED,” Minaj wrote to her loyal followers on Twitter. “But have no fear. Tons of surprises before then ;). Love Always, HB.”
One of those surprises will come at this year’s Grammy Awards, where Nicki is set to perform a brand-new, unreleased single, “Roman Holiday” (also to appear on Roman Reloaded). The performance will mark her first time on the Grammy stage, an honor she adds to nominations for Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album for her 2010 debut Pink Friday.
The 54th annual Grammy Awards are set to air Sunday, February 12, on CBS at 8 p.m. ET.
