Nicki Minaj Says “Queen” Will Be Album Of The Year4 months ago by Amber Le in Trending
After a 6 month hiatus, Nicki Minaj is back and definitely stronger than ever. Ever since she released “Chun Li” and “Barbie Tingz” during her interview with BEATS1, she has been in nonstop conquering mode, expanding her kingdom with her Timbs and heels on.
In addition to her album, Queen, dropping August 10th, she’s been blessing artists with features and teamed up with Future for their joint tour, Nicki Hndrxx. Not only has she been busy making moves musically, she’s reigning every other aspect of the industry, including TV appearances, movie production and gracing the cover of Elle magazine.
“I went through a moment where I got to know myself again, and then I went through a moment where I got to know myself as the rapper again. And then I locked [myself] in the studio and I didn’t want to leave. I’ve experienced a growth spurt in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years.
The truth of the matter is, trap has taken over so much that even our New York rappers are doing nothing but trap songs, because they feel that that’s the way to make it. They’re rapping like people from down south.”
Minaj went onto boast about how she believes Queen will be “the best album of the year.” She expresses that it’s her best work yet and her lyrical content will depict a stronger message for women this time around.
“Maybe I was naive, but I didn’t realize how many girls were modern-day prostitutes. Whether you’re a stripper, or whether you’re an Instagram girl – these girls are so beautiful and they have so much to offer. But I started finding out that you give them a couple thousand dollars, and you can have sex with them. I was like, Yikes. It’s just sad that they don’t know their worth. It makes me sad as a woman. And it makes me sad that maybe I’ve contributed to that in some way.”
