It's been almost a week since Nicki Minaj unveiled her highly anticipated album Queen, but the rapper is still making some adjustments to her record. Her hit collab with 6ix9ine, "FEFE," has been added as track 20.

Changing up albums post-release has become common practice among today's artists, and as Minaj told Tidal's Elliott Wilson, "Because of streaming, we can update the albums.” Kanye West made a number of lyric changes to ye, and Teyana Taylor teased a new version of K.T.S.E. before changing her mind.

However, unlike the time Kanye added "Saint Pablo" to his 2016 album four months after release, "FEFE" is unique in the sense that it has been available for three weeks ahead of Queen's arrival. 6ix9ine is also the main artist listed on the single.

Queen is currently in a tight race against Travis Scott's Astroworld for the No. 1 spot on next week's Billboard 200 albums chart. If Minaj claims the victory, she will be the first female rap artist with three No. 1 albums.
