Nicki Minaj has returned.

The rapper on Thursday dropped two new songs, as promised. First up, she released "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li," the latter of which is a nod to a character from the Street Fighter series.

The new songs are previews of Minaj's upcoming album, her first since 2014's The Pinkprint. "This is the best album that I've ever created," she told Zane Lowe in an interview today to premiere the new music.

She also teased plans to hit the road. "I'm gonna announce a tour soon," she told Lowe. "I can't wait to go around the friggin' world!"

While an album title and release date have to been revealed, the new songs can be heard below.
