Nicki Minaj revealed on Twitter today that she and Philly MC Meek Mill are no longer together. On top of that, she also announced that she's currently focused on making new music. Minaj and Mill had been dating as early as December 2014, when rumors began spreading about their romantic ties. 

As time passed, the two rappers could no longer hide their relationship. They began attending events arm-in-arm and documenting their quality time on Instagram. Mill even gifted Minaj with a diamond ring, which sparked engagement rumors. That's all come to an end now, but it's unclear when their breakup actually occurred.

A quick scroll of Minaj's Instagram timeline shows she's recently been soaking up the sun in Turks and Caicos where she celebrated her 34th birthday. She rang in the new year at a celebration she threw in Miami. Minaj's most recent photo with Mill was posted in December 2016.

Mill was also having a New Year's Eve Party at another club in Miami. He last mentioned Minaj in a post shouting her out on her birthday three weeks ago.    

But now that Minaj has cut ties with Mill, fans will be happy to know that she has new music on the way. In 2016, she kept busy lending her vocals to DJ Khaled's "Do You Mind" and Ariana Grande's "Side to Side." She also added her own spin to Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles" with her freestyle "Black Barbies" which became her 70th Billboard Hot 100 single. Minaj is now the women with the second most Hot 100 hits — one more than Taylor Swift and three less than Aretha Franklin.

Minaj's last album The Pinkprint was released in December 2014. In October, she teased fans desperate for her new recordings with a fake album title called Pick My Fruit Out, but it looks like the real deal can now safely be anticipated.
