We now know what PnB Rock and Murda Beatz were teasing last month.

On Wednesday night, PnB released his much-anticipated single "Fendi," produced by Murda and assisted by Nicki Minaj. The record arrives more than four months after PnB released his sophomore album, TrapStar Turnt PopStar, and just weeks after Nicki announced her retirement from music.

At this time, it's unclear if "Fendi" is a standalone or part of a proper project. You can stream the record now on all major platforms, including Apple Music and via Spotify below.

Shortly after Nicki's retirement tweets, Elle published an interview in which she spoke about her Fendi collaboration as well as her next studio album. The Queen rapper said the project would be "fierce, fun, and unapologetic."

"It’s probably the most excited I’ve been about an album release in a really long time. I’m happy that we’re not making my fans wait for another album, like I’ve done in the past," she said. "This one incorporates all the things people love about Nicki, but it also just has a way bigger sound, so it goes perfectly with the collection."

Though the interview was released after Nicki revealed she was stepping away from music, it was likely conducted before she made the announcement. Nicki has since apologized for the "abrupt and insensitive" tweet, and has reassured fans she will address situation in a Queen Radio episode.

I’m still right here. Still madly in love with you guys & you know that. In hindsight, this should’ve been a Queen Radio discussion & it will be. I promise u guys will be happy. No guests, just us talking about everything. The tweet was abrupt & insensitive, I apologize babe ♥️🙏
