The self-proclaimed rap queen’s long-anticipated record finally hit the net tonight, and it’s star-studded. Queen is 19-tracks long and features Eminem, Labrinth, Lil Wayne, Ariana Grande, The Weeknd, Swae Lee, Future and Foxy Brown.

 

 

Following Minaj pre-Queen has been an emotional roller coaster. Nicki stayed silent and entirely off social media for months, a jarring change for someone so vocal and connected to her fans, but returned with a bang when she dropped back-to-back releases with “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li.” The latter gave Nicki her first solo Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 in four years. Things took a turn with “Bed,” featuring Ariana Grande. The track peaked at No. 43 on the Hot 100 then took a tumble. Her other Ari tune, “The Light Is Coming,” topped out at No. 95.

 

 

Then Nicki hopped on rapper 6ix9ine’s atrocious new song “FEFE,” but his antics are unfortunately so polarizing that the song is performing well chart-wise. Nicki’s releases are very hit or miss right now, but Queen has the production gymnastics and star power to pack a punch (FYI the LP does not feature “The Light Is Coming” or “FEFE”).

 

 



Now, if only she can side-step the harsh multitude of criticisms the Internet has about her (RE Forbes: Nicki Minaj’s ‘Queen’ Rollout Reeks Of Desperation And Hypocrisy), Nicki stands a chance of not only snatching a new No. 1, but more importantly… make a lasting impact on her long-standing career.

Also, golf claps to me for not making a single Cardi B / Lil Kim mention in this entire story.
