Nicki Minaj Further Delays New Album ‘Queen’

The world has been patiently waiting for Nicki Minaj to release her upcoming album ‘Queen.’ So far, we have heard some of the amazing anthems off the album like “Rich Sex,” “Bed,” and “Chun-Li.”

Originally, her upcoming album was supposed to drop next Friday, August 10th. Unfortunately, it has been further delayed until Friday, August 17th. Issues regarding production copyright and the sampling of Tracey Chapmen have forced the date change.

The other day, Nicki hosted a fan-conscious poll on Twitter, discussing whether to remove the song and proceed with the album as scheduled, or wait another week and get clearance. Poll results leaned slightly in favor in keeping the song.

And then yesterday, Nicki announced the delay by sharing her Essentials playlist on Apple Music with a special note to fans:

My darlings!!! I have a huge surprise that I can’t share until the day before #Queen drops. So in the meantime, check out this playlist I made for you guys. I did #FEFE with my new BFF from BROOKLYN. He’s a little funny looking but he’s really sweet under all those tats. :weary: New York til da DEF!!!! Ha! Last time I teamed up with YG was for his remix to “My Hitta.” We recently performed #BigBank at the BET Awards and had a blast wit my dudes Big Sean and 2 Chainz. I have classic bops with all 3 of them so I’m including them on this list. I’m super excited about my recent collaboration with Ariana Grande. She’s one of the realest artists I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She couldn’t fly with me to Turks to shoot the #BedVideo so we shot her scenes in Malibu. We’re actually working on edit number 2 for the #BedVideo to include all the fun stuff we had to remove. I love “Ball For Me” with Post Malone. Not sure why he won’t release the video. :speaking_head_in_silhouette: It’s DOPE!!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I hope you enjoy my playlist. Can’t wait for you guys to hear my 4th album QUEEN ON AUGUST 17!!!!!!!

And then last night, she took to social media to reveal a surprise coming today. So check out the tweets below and stay posted right here for any updates.
