Bow down: Nicki Minaj’s ‘Queen’ makes its royal arrival [Stream]
The self proclaimed ‘queen of rap’ justifies her claim to the crown on Queen, the Trinidadian rapper’s fourth studio album.
The indulgent 19-track production features Minaj‘s previously released singles “Rich Sex,” “Chun-Li,” and Ariana Grande accented “Bed,” amid features with artists of fellow considerable stature like Future, Swae Lee, Eminem, and Lil Wayne. In classic Minaj character, the album is replete with meticulously crafted flows that both bite and exude Minaj’s lyrical wit.
Queen asserts that a true queen is never late: Minaj’s production arrived earlier than expected on August 10, a week sooner than the album’s projected August 17 release date.
