Nicki Minaj will unveil the follow-up to her debut LP, ‘Pink Friday,’ next year, and now the 28-year-old hip-hop phenom has revealed the title and release date of her forthcoming album.

On Tuesday, the singer/rapper announced the news on the anniversary of her ‘Pink Friday’ release, which arrived on Nov. 22 last year. “U know what??? There’s been a change of plans barbz. I’m announcing the name and date today. How do I get on ustream???” she tweeted. “Its only right to announce it on the anniversary of Pink Friday right barbz???”

Instead of using the video platform, Minaj revealed the news via Twitter. “Pink Friday : ROMAN RELOADED will be released on Valentines Day, 2012. Heeeee’s baaaacccckkkkk,” she wrote.

Fans of the star know that ‘Roman Reloaded’ is a nod to the effusive singer’s alter ego Roman Zolanski, and now Barbz all over will get to hear the concept album on Feb. 14, 2012. The Queens native also clarified that the release will include all new tracks and is not a re-release.

Minaj recently won two American Music Awards after performing on several massive, sold-out tours this summer. The success is due to her stunning debut, which boasts singles like ‘Moment 4 Life’ and the often-covered and highly spun ‘Super Bass.’
