Ahead of the release of Nicki Minaj's hugely-anticipated Queen album, we’ve gathered everything you need to know to get even more excited about the album’s drop - officially arriving later today.

After releasing “Chun-Li” and "Barbie Tingz" a few weeks back, it’s safe to say that the hype for the release of Nicki Minaj's Queen is reaching a fever pitch.

How will she follow up her highly successful third album The Pinkprint, released back in 2014? Although we have no word on potential collaborators, who do we predict will make an appearance on the album? When will it actually drop?

For all those details and more, read on for a rundown of everything we know so far about Nicki Minaj's Queen.

Release Date:

Following Minaj's release announcement of June 15, 2018 on the red carpet of the Met Gala, she has since pushed back the album, now giving it a drop date of August 10.

Potential Features / Collaborators:

As for potential feature artists, we're thinking Cardi B might make an appearance after her and Nicki Minaj lent bars to Migos' "MotorSport".

It would also make perfect sense if fellow Cash Money Records labelmates Drake and Lil Wayne also stop by for a feature or two, like on the iconic "Truffle Butter" from The Pinkprint.

Editor’s Notes:

In an radio interview last year with SiriusXM's Shade 45, Minaj had this to say about her fourth album: "I know it’s going to be my best body of work. That’s next on my bucket list – to deliver my fourth album and make sure that it’s a classic hip-hop album that people will never forget."

Stay tuned for more news on Nicki Minaj's Queen as it comes in ahead of its August 10th release.
