A rep for Minaj’s label did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment Thursday.
The rapper’s most recent single, “Megatron,” was released on June 21 of this year. Though it did reach No. 1 on the iTunes overall chart, the song only debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 and dropped down to No. 92 the following week.
In April, she was featured on Chris Brown’s single “Wobble Up” along with rapper G-Eazy. That song debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and made it as high as No. 7 on the iTunes overall chart.
Minaj’s most recent album, “Queen,” was released in Aug. of 2018. It peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 behind Travis Scott’s “Astroworld.”
