As Nicki Minaj continues to gear up for the release of her anticipated Queen album, she will be embarking on a new endeavor to deliver fresh content to her die-hard Barbz fanbase. On Wednesday (August 8), Nicki announced the launch of her Queen Radio show on Apple Music's Beats 1 station.

The debut episode will premiere Thursday night at 10 p.m. ET on Beats 1. "#QueenRadio begins tomorrow @applemusic! The new dynasty begins on @beats1official tomorrow at 7pm PT/10pm ET. AND I might have something special for you too," she teased on social media.

Minaj will be holding a live Q&A session and have special giveaways for fans participating in the discussion. "I’ll be conducting a live Q&A portion of my very first show. Prizes for the best comments & questions include signed albums, signed merch, tour [tickets], AND plane tickets to discuss #QUEENw|ME & other members of the magical KINGDOM," Nicki wrote.

Queen Radio joins a number of artists getting their own show on the Apple Music platform, including Frank Ocean, Travis Scott, The Weeknd, Drake and DJ Khaled. Nicki pushed her fourth studio album back for a second time last week, thanks to last-minute sampling issues. Queen is now slated to drop next Friday.
