Los Angeles: Rapper Nicki Minaj has signed a multi-million dollar deal to front the campaign for Pepsi`s new drink called Pop.

Derek Jackson, head of Glu agency who brokered the agreement, confirms the star shot a television commercial for the new product in South America last month.

"You`ll see the commercial probably in the next two months. That`ll be a segue into a new beverage Pepsi has, called `Pop,` and she`ll be the face of the brand, it`s going to be explosive" quoted Derek as saying.

The 29-year-old, who has an income of 4 million pounds last year, is planning to tour Britain in June.
