Nicki Minaj has both flaunted and celebrated her position as one of hip-hop’s major sex symbols. While she has occasionally delivered sensual, grown-woman vibes on singles like “Anaconda” or “Bed,” the Queen rapper can still come through with a touch of class. Today, Minaj has chosen to style on the masses, sharing a collection of photographs from a recent photo-shoot with Harper’s Bazaar Russia.
In the shoot, Minaj posts up with the blonde hair, decked out in a series of elegant threads, including a yellow-coat worthy of Curious George’s adoptive father. Though usually chatty on the Gram, Minaj allows to let the imagery speak for itself, shouting out those who worked on the photoshoot while plugging her upcoming Queen album.
Check out the pictures now, and stay tuned for that new Nicki Minaj, which is set to drop on August 10th. It’s hard to say what we can expect from the project, but we’ve already heard “Chun Li,” “Barbie Tingz,” “Rich Sex,” and “Bed.” If that’s not enough to give us an idea of the album’s sonic direction, what is?
