You’ll see the commercial probably in the next two months, that’ll be a segue into a new beverage Pepsi has, called ‘Pop,’ and she’ll be the face of the brand … it’s going to be explosive.
Nicki isn’t the only one, snatching up a deal from Pepsi. Lil Wayne also worked out a seven-figure deal with Pepsi-owned Mountain Dew to launch a campaign titled DeWeezy. In his contract, which was the biggest in Mountain Dew history, Pepsi and Mountain Dew also agreed to pay for a film starring Weezy, which could be in the works.
Meanwhile, following the release of Nicki Minaj’s upcoming second studio album ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ she will embark on a sixteen-date tour across Europe in countries that include France, Italy and The United Kingdom. For full details and listings are available over at Live Nation.
