A day after returning to social media, Nicki Minaj posted another series of racy photos on Instagram. 

On Tuesday, the rap queen shared photos of herself in a skin-tight patterned dress bursting with hues of yellow, pink and orange, paired with a matching bag and shoes.

Minaj used the caption to quote lyrics from her upcoming single, “Fractions,” which drops Friday. 

“[Chicks] act like they want action, heard they want action, [chick] we ain’t duckin’ no action. I’m bout to giv’em dat traction, send a distraction— then ima line’em like FRACTIONS,” she wrote on Instagram. 

Skai Jackson, Erica Banks, Karol G and more of Nicki’s Barbz fans shared their excitement for the first potential offering from Nicki’s upcoming fifth studio album.

“You didn’t have to do em like that queen,” Jackson wrote in the comments, while others shared dozens of fire and crown emojis.  Another fan wrote, “Oh you cutting up after your first Mother’s Day! I see you.

Nicki Minaj celebrated her first Mother’s Day last Sunday after welcoming her son with husband Kenneth Petty on September 30. Though many are patiently waiting for Nicki to share his name, some new music will be the perfect distraction, while she takes her time opening up about her experience as a new mom.

“Becoming a mom is by far the most fulfilling job I’ve ever taken on. Sending love to all the superhero mothers out there,” Nicki wrote on Instagram. “Big hugs to all the women who have been pregnant during this challenging time.”
