Nicki Minaj is coming down under this year for an Australian tour!

The dates have now been announced, and it looks like it will only be a two city tour, with a stop in at Melbourne and Sydney!

We're sad she's not playing more cities, but still excited she's paying Australia a visit at all!

Nick Minaj is known for being a super-hot rap diva, and arguably one of the hottest names in music right now!

Fans all over the world fell in love with Nicki Minaj in 2010, when she released her incredibly successful debut studio album, Pink Friday.

Since then her outspoken manner, crazy fashion sense and wicked sense of humour has solidified her as one of the hottest talents around!

Her highly anticipated 2012 album is called Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and features her latest single Starships which is flying high on the Take 40 chart.

This album is set to be unveiled on April 2, just in time for her Australian tour!

Aussie fans who are attending her Sydney and Melbourne shows will be able to pre-order the new album Pink Friday : Roman Reloaded and will be some of the first lucky people to hear her new music!
