She might be keeping it on the low, but Nicki Minaj is quietly working on her new album. The multi-talented Barb speaks with MTV about the "new sound" we can expect from her forthcoming solo effort.

"I'm very excited with what I've been coming up with. I already started [recording]. I didn't tell anybody because I'm like 'I'm gonna jinx it,'" she says.

The rapper is dedicating two months to record the album and is collaborating with people she's never worked with before. "They're bringing a new sound to the album that I've never experimented," the Queens, N.Y., native shares.

With her crazy life of music, television and fashion, Minaj has tons of topics to rap about that she hasn't expressed elsewhere. "I have so much to talk about," the 30-year-old reveals.

She plans to delve into more "deep s---" on the follow-up to 2012's 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.'
