Nicki Minaj took to Twitter on Thursday (January 5) to confirm that she was single and that she was working on some new music for this year.
The tweet read: “To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year. Love u.”
Minaj had been dating Philly rapper Meek Mill. The relationship began in early 2015.
Late last year, a lot of rumors were flying concerning the reason for the split with the biggest one being that Meek Mill had allegedly been cheating on Minaj.

The breakup will certainly not affect her career. Just last month, Minaj scored her 70th hit on the Hot 100 charts, tying with Taylor Swift for the second most among females, with her song “Black Barbies.”
Despite not dropping an album in 2016, Minaj was largely present in many forms: releasing her own mobile game “Nicki Minaj: The Empire,” appearing in Barbershop: The Next Cut, and doing guest vocals on multiple tracks, such as Ariana Grande’s “Side To Side” which peaked at No. 4 on the Hot 100.
