The songwriter and TV star, known for her outlandish outfits, has been made the face of the brand, which specialises in fruit-infused single serve Moscato.

“I’m so excited to team with Myx. I have no doubt that it will be number one.

“It’s a great tasting product that people will love. It’s not even a hard sell. Myx Fusions gives us an opportunity to revolutionise the wine industry,” she said.

Priced at $4 bottle, Myx Fusions is currently available in New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and there are plans to roll out the Moscato across the US.

“The collaboration between Nicki Minaj and Myx Fusions is a game changer,” said Mona Scott-Young, chief marketing officer for the brand.

“Nicki is an innovative trendsetter and has the ability to energise the masses.

“She embodies everything that Myx Fusions represents: style, spontaneity and the desire to push the envelope and inspire change,” she added.

Housed in 6oz electric blue crown-capped bottles, the range comprises three flavors: Original Moscato, Coconut & Moscato, and Peach & Moscato.

As part of the collaboration, Minaj is set to front Myx’s print, radio and TV marketing campaign.

The American Idol judge has already endorsed the brand on new track I’m Out by RnB singer Ciara, rapping: “If I’m sippin’ in the club, Myx Moscato.”

“Moscato has done wonders for wine consumption and Myx Fusions will do the same for Moscato,” said the brand’s CEO Peter Reaske.

The grape now accounts for 6% of volumes sales in the US, up 33% year-on-year.

Born Onika Tanya Maraj in Trinidad and Tobago in 1982, Minaj is best known for her quadruple-platinum 2010 single Super Bass and 2012 follow-up Starships.

    Hello I was interested in finding out how to become a sponsor for the nicki minaj moscato bottles. I have an entertainment and what we do is promote aspiring models and video models. This moscato has not yet hit pittsburgh and I want to have the honor of displaying it on our tee shirts, hats, and more. Even though our walmarts do not carry alcoholic beverages yet we can still order them ourselves. I wouldn’t have even known about them if it were not for one of my models from Ohio. I do not currently have my site up but it will be soon. I thank you for listening and hope to see something from you soon. Thank you!
