This news is sure to get some heartbeats running away.

Nicki Minaj announced on Power 105.1 that she has indeed been in the studio working on her third studio album. This album will be her first since Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, which debuted at #1 in April of last year and yielded such hits as "Starships" and "Beez in the Trap." In her words:

"With the album, thank God, I've experienced so much in the last year and a half that there is so much for me to talk about and I know my fans are going to be excited about it."

We have little doubt that the Barbz—and perhaps a pair of sisters in tutus—are already chomping at the bit.
