Nicki Minaj delays ‘Anaconda’ release, posts another racy image



Nicki MinajHip-hop artist Nicki Minaj caused an uncomfortable stir when she posted the cover art for her new single – a photo of herself from the back, squatting seductively in a hit pink bikini.

She released another photo from the same set Sunday – but this one from the front – to tell fans the release of Anaconda will be a week late

“My darlingz, I’ve pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4,” the 31-year-old captioned the Instagram photo.

“I promise you will understand why before the week is out,” she continued.

The new shot shows the curvaceous entertainer standing on a pink yoga mat in a matching pink bikini. Off to one side is a large pink exercise ball, on the other, a pair of five-pound pink dumbbells.

As in the original snap, Nicki is wearing high top blue trainers.
