The real-life Harajuku Barbie returns with an incendiary and weird-as-hell tease from her new album.

Well, damn. Young Money's pink-wigged queen Nicki Minaj has announced plans release her sophomore album Pink Friday:Roman Reloaded on February 14, and today we've got the first taste via a stabby little track called "Stupid Hoe".

After tasting new flavor a while back with the hookless oddity that is "Roman in Moscow," Minaj sets her sights on the competition, teasing that they can suck her "dizznick" after what we can only assume is yet another slice-up of Lil' Kim: “Bitch talkin’ she the queen when she lookin’ like a lab rat / I’m Angelina, you Jennifer / c’mon, bitch, you see where Brad at.” And damn if she didn't just call a bitch Bubbles, like Michael Jackson's monkey.

She also drops a Super Bowl appearance reference, a seeming confirmation that she'll be appearing with Madonna next year at the big halftime show. Interesting. Harajuku Barbie gets full-on obnoxious with solid technical ability, but an indulgence in flat-out annoyance and a bit of same-same stylistic approach make this a fascinating but not altogether great track. Listen to Minaj declare herself the "female Weezy" for yourself below:

Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is out February 14 via Young Money. The LP, which apparently will be a continuation of her male alter ego 'Roman Zolansk,' has some serious shoes to fill after her platinum-selling debut Pink Friday a year ago. Pink Friday features production styles crossing the genres of pop, hip-hop and R&B, with production from a wide range of producers including J.R. Rotem, Bangladesh, Swizz Beatz, T-Minus and Will.i.am.
