Alongside the caption ‘Friday’ with a fingers-crossed emoji, Nicki could be seen posing nude in a very pink photoshoot and surrounded by Chanel props.
The Feeling Myself rapper was sat on the edge of a desk with her hair styled in a tall ponytail and covering her modesty with a pair of pink heart-shaped cushions.
As well as being blinged out in expensive jewelry, Nicki’s look is finished off with a pair of on-trend Crocs.
Speculating over her return, one fan commented: ‘OMG shes coming Barbz get ready.’
Another quipped: ‘Barbz we survived the hiatus.’
One fan declared: ‘Nicki is back and she isn’t playing!’
It’s been three years since Nicki released her most recent album, 2018’s Queen, which reached number two on the US Billboard 200 chart.
Last year, she teamed up with Tekashi 6ix9ine on the number one single Trollz and also appeared on the track What That Speed Bout!? with Mike Will Made It and YoungBoy NBA.
Nicki has taken time out from recording over the past year to focus on motherhood after welcoming her first child with husband Kenneth Petty in September.
The rapper hasn’t revealed his name yet but he’s certainly adorable as she shared a few pics of the eight-month-old last year.
