The posts immediately shocked fans as Nicki has reportedly been on a hiatus from the public eye as she works to perfect her next studio album. Those that follow the "Super Bass" rapper on social media know that she hasn't posted anything on social media since December 2017.
Until recently in March, she unexpectedly appeared in a Mercedes-Benz commercial. The video shows a woman riding in her vehicle as she talks to her interactive radio Mercedes audio system. The woman then asks the audio system to play some hip-hop music, which causes Nicki to appear in the passenger seat next to her. The 35-year-old songwriter then shows off the car's ability to avoid traffic blocks.

It looks like the announcement of her new music has brought Nicki out of hiding as she appeared at a Los Angeles Lakers Game on Tuesday, April 10.
The actress turned heads as she sat on the courtside in a leather look which featured a strapless top and matching skirt with fishnet stockings and black heels. The ensemble was complete with studs and spikes. The Pinkprint star topped the outfit off with black sunglasses and wore her hair in a high bun.
