Nicki Minaj has announced details of her second single of 2022 in “Bussin,” which will also feature guest vocals from Lil Baby.

The rap icon only made her return with “Do We Have A Problem?” last Friday (February 4), but is already returning to give her fans more new material.

“Next week we pushin B for Bussin,” Minaj wrote on Twitter on Monday (7), revealing the new track’s release date in the same tweet. “Bussin” will arrive this Friday (11). The star also shared the artwork for the release, which sees her standing in a corridor featured in the “Do We Have A Problem?” video, wearing black shades, a big necklace featuring the single’s title, and putting her hands on her head.

“Do We Have A Problem?” also featured an assist from Lil Baby and was accompanied by a video that doubled as a cinematic epic, clocking in at nearly 10 minutes long. The visuals saw Minaj become a double agent, turning on her own side to help Lil Baby. It featured The Chi’s Cory Hardrict and Power’s Joseph Sikora and ended with the two rappers holding the latter actor at gunpoint.

Before she made her return with the song, Minaj gave fans at the LA Clippers game at Los Angeles’ Arena a sneak preview. She also performed her Diamond-certified single “Super Bass” at the event and was given her own personalized jersey by the team.

Later, she also stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to talk about the track. “I get nervous every single time,” she said of her feelings before releasing new music. “Because you want people to like what you do – we wouldn’t be doing it if we didn’t want approval from our fans.”

After Corden commented on the grand scale of the video, Minaj spoke about the idea behind it. “Before I was famous, I went to school and studied acting so I was like, ‘You know what, why don’t I bring something that I love to do to my music video, which is acting,’” she said. “We got Joseph Sikora and Cory Hardrict and Lil Baby is actually a great actor in my opinion as well, and we just did something that is in my lane, not me doing anything in anyone else’s lane.”

Pre-save “Bussin.”
