Nicki Minaj Delays the Drop of Her Album 'Queen' Again

Due to an uncleared sample.

Earlier this year, Nicki Minaj revealed that she’d be releasing her fourth studio album titled Queen. Originally set to launch on June 15, the rapper announced that the anticipated record would be delayed until August 10, and with the date rapidly approaching, the “Super Bass” singer has announced a new date for the album to drop.

There’s yet no official details or statements regarding the delay, but speculations say the postponing stems from a sample clearance issue. It is rumored that the holdup comes from a Tracy Chapman sample, which Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to discuss as well as contacted Chapman directly. The now deleted tweet reads, “So there’s a record on #Queen that features 1of the greatest rappers of all time. Had no clue it sampled the legend #TracyChapman - do I keep my date & lose the record? Or do I lose the record & keep my date? do we push #Queen back 1week? Ugh! I’m torn, y’all help.”

It looks like fans will have to wait a few more days for the album. Meanwhile, don’t miss Minaj’s latest music video for “Bed” with Ariana Grande.
