Nicki Minaj was forced to cancel her New Orleans show on Monday due to illness.

The announcement came via the Smoothie King Center's account on X, formerly Twitter, hours before the rapper was set to hit the stage.

"Due to doctor's orders, Nicki Minaj must reschedule her NOLA show tonight. As Nicki is still sick, our team does not want to run the risk of getting others sick, and Nicki would not be able to give NOLA the show they deserve," the announcement read.

A follow-up post asked concert-goers to hold onto their tickets as work as the venue is "working diligently to find a new date."

The musician, 41, first hinted at being under the weather early Saturday morning.

"Barbz pls send me healing energy. woke up feeling like I had Covid. Thank God I don’t. You guys are just everything. I appreciate you. I love you so much," wrote Minaj on X. In another post, she noted that her voice " is probably going to sound a lil diff."
