Nicki Minaj Solidifies Herself As Rap Royalty With 'Queen' Album Art

The new project is set drop in August.

Published June 7, 2018

Nicki Minaj is back with new details about her highly anticipated album Queen. Weeks after announcing that she'd pushed the project's original June release date back to August, Minaj took to social media revealing the album's official release date and it's Egyptian-themed album art.

Almost fully nude, Nicki posed on top of a tree branch covered in ancient Egyptian accessories. Boasting a bold blood orange background, the cover was shot by Mert and Marcus. As if the Barbs weren't excited for an official release date, Minaj also referred to the upcoming project as her "greatest work to date."

As soon as Nicki Minaj dropped Queen's album art, her dedicated fans, affectionately known as the Barbs, quickly took to social media stanning for their fave.
