Wendy Williams can take comfort in the fact that performer Nicki Minaj is not missing – she’s just really busy working on her new album.

Concerned Wendy launched a faux campaign on her talk show, complete with missing persons poster, hoping to find Nicki since the rapper has been absent from social media in 2018.

However, sources close to Minaj have revealed to TMZ Nicki’s break from social media is intentional, telling the news outlet, “she decided to ditch social media at the end of 2017 to fully focus on her music, which is why she’s had no new posts since December 30.”

The sources revealed Nicki feels more creative when she doesn’t have social media to distract her – something she needs as she works on her long awaited fourth album, a follow-up to her hugely successful 2014’s The Pinkprint.

Sources told TMZ, Nicki has been working in the studio night and day and the album should be released by the end of the year.
