For those who've been living under a rock, let's take a little walk down memory lane.

Wayne signed her to his Young Money Entertainment and soon after, Minaj was featured on Yo Gotti's "5 Star B*tch."

In 2010, Minaj released her first album.

This crossover helped her gain fans from all over the musical spectrum and kept her songs on Top 40 radio.
In 2011, she toured with Britney Spears on her "Femme Fatale" tour...

Luckily, the year wasn't all bad for the star.

In 2012, arguably her biggest hit was released.
Based on that success, Minaj headlined her own tour through 2012...

Her next album, The Pinkprint, was released on December 15th, 2014.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, the video contained all kinds of Nazi-related imagery that was insensitive to Holocaust survivors. That's a big no from us.
But in March of the following year, she pulled a boss move...
By now, everyone was awaiting Minaj's fourth album with bated breath...

In 2019, she surprised audiences by appearing onstage with Ariana Grande at Coachella during "Side to Side" and "Bang Bang."
via: Getty ImagesEverything seemed to be going well. Minaj announced her fifth album on Jimmy Fallon, telling him "You're the first to find out... of course, there's a new album."
But as of recent, her personal life has been stealing the spotlight.
But then, fans started speculating if the singer was pregnant...
Here's the tweet from a few months ago:
