In December, Nicki Minaj announced that she planned to follow up her OPI nail polish collaboration with a Barbie doll and a fragrance. It looks like the latter has come through: WWD announced today that Minaj has signed a deal with Give Back Brands to do a perfume. If you haven't heard of Give Back, you've probably heard of their fragrances—they did Justin Bieber's Someday, which was (big sigh) last year's top selling women's launch.
Though the perfume doesn't have a name or launch date beyond "this fall" yet, we can probably count on anything associated with Nicki Minaj being bright, colorful, and over the top. And probably pink. And neon. And constantly reminding you it's better than Lil' Kim's perfume.
