Nicki Minaj’s new album Queen is out now, back on schedule. Last week, Minaj announced a second release delay due to a sample issue, but now Queen has arrived on all streaming platforms. Minaj’s fourth studio album has encountered some bumps: A first release pushback from June to August, a single (“Barbie Tingz”) that didn’t make the album, a feud with a Twitter critic, the aforementioned sample snafu, and a guest appearance on a song with controversial rapper 6ix9ine that so far has outperformed all of Minaj’s own singles on the charts.
Next month, Nicki Minaj and Future will be heading out on their NICKIHNDRXX joint tour. The tour dates kick off in Baltimore on September 21.
