Nicki Minaj was originally meant to release her fourth studio album on June 15th, however she told fans they would have to wait longer so she could get it right. “Trust me, it’s the better choice,” she explained in an Instagram Live video. She also let everyone know her new release date will be August 10th.
She recently confirmed that ‘Queen’ will be out a week later than planned on August 17th. It has been reported that the delay is due to a sample clearance issue. Minaj has been seeking permission from Tracy Chapman to include a sample of one of her songs on the album and she even tweeted on July 31, asking the musician “can you please hit me”.
Manaj also tweeted out to her fans, “Y’all gon get mad tea on that song too. I’m high key lookin out for y’all chile. It’s sum GOODT TEA TOO. I’d be willing to sacrifice one more week for this tea! But I haven’t decided. Ugh. Love you.” The tweet has since been deleted.
So, will we see the album August 10th or 17th? Guess we will have to wait and see.
