Nicki Minaj to release next album in 2014

London: Rapper Nicki Minaj has confirmed that she will release a new album next year.

The 30-year-old singer, who hasn`t released any music for the last 18 months, said she is beginning to plan her third LP and is expecting it to be ready by the end of 2014, reported Contactmusic.

"I`m definitely working. I`m very excited at what I`ve been coming up with. I already started, I didn`t tell anybody because I didn`t want to jinx it and stuff but I already started and I`m going home tomorrow to really start," she said.

The `Super Bass` hitmaker is remaining tight-lipped about who she is working with, but she is confident that the people she has selected for her new studio album will put a different spin on her music.

"I`m really excited and the people that have been working with me now, have been people that I haven`t worked with before so it`s like they`re bringing a new sound to the album that I`ve never experimented with and plus, I got so much to talk about."
