Nicki Minaj has been super quiet on social media as of late. So much so, that a fan went as far as to create a "Finding Nicki" website that's counting down her return to social back February.

Well, on Sunday, she went on Twitter to tweet for the very first time in 2018 (she hadn't posted since Dec 30). Her message? A simple "4" which she later deleted. Then on Monday afternoon, she tweeted "3," which she also then deleted.

So what does it all mean? Who knows, really. Nicki has her hands in a lot of things and it may have nothing to do with music at all. Or maybe she's just messing with her fans' heads. Or maybe, as her listeners are suggesting, it actually does mean she has new tunes on the way.

Young Thug also posted the number "3," so there's also that. Maybe he's featuring on a song?

Nicki is set to drop an album at some point this year, and leading into the summer, it'd be a great time to hear new music. She's previously said she feels more "free and excited" about this project.

"This album is everything in my life coming full circle and me being truly, genuinely happy," she told T-Magazine back in October.. "It feels almost like a celebration. The last album, The Pinkprint, was almost like my diary, closing the chapter on certain things and not knowing if I was happy or sad about beginning new chapters. I was really writing about feeling unsure. Now, I can tell you guys what happened for the last two years of my life. I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.”

*Update:Fans were correct—Nicki Minaj posted that her new singles, "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun Li" are dropping Thursday. Check her IG post below.
