The New Nicki Minaj Album Is Not Called Pick My Fruit Out

Nicki Minaj trolled eager fans on Twitter Saturday night, responding to demands for new music by promising to drop an album called Pick My Fruit Out at midnight.

Her followers were immediately skeptical—the first response to Minaj’s tweet was “r u kidding me”—but since it’s been nearly two years since the release of The Pinkprintthey couldn’t ignore the possibility. The Queens rapper followed up with a fruity faux track list, including #4, “Bananas (harambe interlude),” and an unlisted #10 featuring her “favorite rapper of all time”:

Shortly afterward, though, Minaj admitted she’d been kidding all along. “I been cryin laughin this whole time,” she wrote.

Though she hasn’t released her own new music lately, Minaj has stayed busy, guesting on DJ Khaled’s album, recording “The Pinkprint Freestyle” over the instrumental track of Young M.A’s “OOOUUU,” and performing with Ariana Grande at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards. Minaj has mentioned working on new material in other recent tweets, so expect her next album announcement to be the real thing.
