Nicki Minaj is everywhere, except on her own album. But that’s about to change because the breakout star’s debut finally has an official release date.

Young Money’s First Lady will release her as-yet-untitled album during the week of Thanksgiving, known to be the busiest shopping week of the year in the U.S. “Yes. It’s time. November 23rd,” she told her followers on Twitter.

Her single “Your Love” is No. 1 on the Rap Songs chart for the second straight week. She became the first female artist, unaccompanied by another act, to reach No. 1 on the chart since Missy Elliott’s “Work It” spent 12 weeks at No. 1 in November 2002.

A video for “Your Love” was shot in Los Angeles over the Fourth of July weekend. The song, is the follow-up single to “Massive Attack.”
