Nicki Minaj Drops New Album "Queen"

August 10, 2018

Nicki Minaj has pulled a fast one on her fans. After announcing that her album, Queen, will be dropping on August 17th following two delays, Beats 1 Radio revealed on their Twitter that the album will be dropping today (August 11th). Beats 1 wrote, “#Queen the album is coming at 9AM PT / 12PM ET!!! @NICKIMINAJ just announced it on #QueenRadio!” 

Nicki previewed tracks from the album on her new "Queen Radio" station on Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio, which also served as an album listening party. At the "Queen Radio" premiere/album listening party there were a number of celebrity guests who made appearances on the show, such as Draya Michelle, Lauren London, Kelly Rowland, Justine Skye, Normani, Kim Kardashian West, Winnie Harlow and more. During the radio show, Nicki revealed that she was going to play the album, but there were some mix ups. She said, “I was gonna play the album right now but someone f**ked up. It's a lot of corporate drama in here.”
