On the first Thursday of 2017, Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to respond to the rumors of her split with Meek Mill. "To confirm, yes I am single," she wrote. "Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year." Fans on social media responded swiftly to the news and many seemed to feel as though the breakup was a step in the right direction for the rap star.
