There's been a lot of speculation today as to why Nicki Minaj postponed the release of her new single "Anaconda," but most of it doesn't make much sense.
After all, Minaj garnered a huge amount of online buzz when the "Anaconda" cover art was released last week. Nicki's booty-ful pose caused such a stir online that the "Anaconda" memes still show no sign of stopping:
What could possibly stop her from capitalizing on that sort of free publicity? Surely, it doesn't have anything to do with Nicki doing cameo voice work for the Cartoon Network show Steven Universe as some sources have suggested.
No, we're guessing only one thing would stop Nicki from sticking with her original agenda: a challenge from a formidable rap rival who could conceivably embarrass Nicki by outselling her without a fraction of the press and promotions enjoyed by "Anaconda."
