The 29-year-old Trinidad-born, Queens-bred MC, who’s up for a slew of awards, including Best New Artist, on Feb. 12, will also debut a brand new song off her sophomore LP, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.’ As she preps for music’s biggest night, Nicki’s sharing the path she’s traveled to get there in an exclusive video highlighting her “road to the Grammys.”
