Nicki Minaj sent her Barbz into a frenzy when she announced that her anticipated Queen album would indeed release on Friday (Aug. 10). She broke the news during her debut episode of Queen Radio on Beats 1. Minaj later delivered on her promise as the project arrived on streaming services shortly prior to noon ET.
Queen includes previously released singles “Rich Sex,” “Chun-Li,” and the Ariana Grande-assisted “Bed.” The Young Money rapper pulled out all the stops for a decorated cast of features, as she enlists the likes of Lil Wayne, “Roman’s Revenge” collaborator Eminem, Labrinth, The Weeknd, Swae Lee, Future, and Foxy Brown for assists on the album.
“Barbie Dreams” finds Nicki sampling the legendary Notorious B.I.G.’s “Just Playing (Dreams),” where she takes aim at her male compatriots of the hip-hop industry in a brutally honest evisceration. The Queens native even goes on to admit that Meek Mill is still in her DMs and not being on speaking terms with DJ Khaled at the moment.
