Remember earlier this year when no one knew where Nicki Minaj was? She practically fell off the face of the earth. It happened around late, late December — she just stopped posting to her social media accounts and she stopped making public appearences.

There were some rumors that she was at a drug rehab facility, there were other rumors that she was recovering from plastic surgery, but no one knew exactly what was going on with her.
"Chun Li" by @NICKIMINAJ rises to a new peak of #10 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Then without warning last week, on March 29, Minaj dropped a Mercedes-Benz commercial on her IG account that was actually pretty cool — it had a nice “Funky Drummer” beat and everything. And that was the sign that she might be coming out of hiding. And now, with her latest post yesterday, it’s official — Nicki Minaj is campaigning for a full return to the spotlight.
