Nicki Minaj previously delayed the drop of her highly anticipated album Queen. Originally set for a June 15 release, the singer pushed back the launch until August 10, making fans wait another two months. Set to include her two singles “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” the album will be her first since she released The Pinkprint in 2014.
Now, the rapper has revealed the cover for the highly awaited drop, featuring Nicki herself clad in a Cleopatra-inspired getup. Featuring embellished crystals and gems all over her body, the powerful look is in true Minaj fashion. Although there is yet little information as to what to expect from the album, we’re sure that it will be just as mind-blowing as the cover itself. Shot by Mert Alas, the singer posted the cover on Instagram along with the caption, “by the legendary #MertAndMarcus ~ My greatest work to date. Thank you for your patience & love. Pre-Order next week w|my 2nd single,” also revealing that we could be in for another release.
