Nicki Minaj set the internet ablaze Thursday when she released the cover art for her new single “Anaconda.”

The “Pills N Potions” singer posted the photo, which features her wearing a crop top, g-string and sneakers, on her Instagram account.

“7/28 #ANACONDA ON iTUNES,” Minaj captioned.

The photo quickly racked up over 200,000 likes and hundreds of comments.

The rapper has toned down her look in recent months, ditching the colorful wigs for a more “natural” look, she told E! News recently.

“Before my first album, I used to have a natural look. Only my really underground followers knew that side of me,” she said.
