Nicki Minaj teases new alter ego in upcoming album

US rapper Nicki Minaj arrives for the 2019 Met Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on May 6, 2019, in New York

The rapper recently released her comeback single, "Yikes," which arrived five months after she announced her "retirement" from the music industry.

While the song stirred outrage for a line referencing Rosa Parks, Minaj squashed the controversy by detailing her much-anticipated new album in a Q&A session on Twitter.

A fan notably asked if the yet-untitled full-length would mark the return of one of her numerous alter egos, such as Roman Zolanski, Cookie, the Harajuku Barbie and Nicki Lewinsky.

Minaj revealed that she will debut Queen Sleeze in her forthcoming fifth studio album, with the rapper describing this new character as "more calm but way deadlier."

"My husband always says he's more afraid when I talk quiet [than] when I yell. Lmao. He said that's how he knows when I'm dead tf serious," she added, referring to her husband Kenneth Petty.

Minaj also confirmed during the Q&A that she has a title in mind for the long-waited follow-up to 2018's "Queen," without sharing any hints about what fans can expect.

Last October, the "Anaconda" rapper told ELLE that her next studio album will be "fierce, fun and unapologetic," also "incorporat[ing] all the things people love about Nicki, but it also just has a way bigger sound."

At the time, she also hinted that she would like to work with fellow rappers DaBaby and Gunna on her new project.

"I just recently collaborated with DaBaby, so he gotta return the favor. I love Gunna. If there is an album, there's gonna be way more than that. If there is an album. It was also dope working with Megan [Thee Stallion] as well, that's just in terms of rap. I like to experiment with different genres, so there would be - if there is an album - there would be other surprises," she told The Shade Room.

While she is gearing towards the release of her fifth opus, Minaj recently collaborated with fellow hitmaker Meghan Trainor on "Nice to Meet Ya."

The upbeat single appears on the American singer-songwriter's third studio album, "Treat Myself," which arrived on January 31.
