Ivy Queen is back!  The Puerto Rican rapper has released the new EP The Queen Is Here and returns on a mission to take the feminine movement to a new level.

The EP, released Thursday (Feb. 28), includes seven songs that Ivy Queen recorded after her fans insisted that she needed to release new music. "The motivation has been the fans and each of their messages on social media," Ivy Queen said.

But the new EP is just the beginning, because Ivy Queen has plans that go much further in 2019. "We are in negotiations for a collaboration with Cardi B," says the singer, who also clarified that they have not been able to coordinate to meet in the studio because of scheduling conflicts. "In May, we will be singing at the same festival and we hope to be able to meet." The idea of a collaboration came after Cardi B tweeted that Ivy is her queen.
