You know Nicki Minaj’s self-proclaimed answer to Jay Z’s The Blueprint we’ve been waiting so long for? Well, we’re going to have to wait a bit longer.

The YMCMB rapper’s third studio album has been pushed back from Nov. 24 to Dec. 15.  The news came in a press release announcing Minaj’s new single, “Only,” which features Drake, Lil Wayne, and Chris Brown and drops on Tuesday. It also came just hours after reports surfaced that Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V had been delayed (for what feels like the 20th time this year), according to Karen Civil.

The Pinkprint features previously released singles “Pills N Potions” and  “Anaconda.” Judging from the differences between the two“Pills” is an emotional, piano-driven ballad, where “Anaconda” is decidedly more raunchy thingthere’s no telling what we’ll get with “Only,” or the rest of The Pinkprint, for that matter.
