It looks like Nicki Minaj has a surprise in the works.
She went on Twitter yesterday (July 31), to discuss her brand new album with her fans. This time she wanted to get the Barbz input in whether to push her album back one week to get a Tracy Chapman sample cleared. She also revealed that she has a legend on the same track, although she did not reveal who that legend was.
While we wait for the decision of Nicki’s fans put matters into her own hands and decided to direct message Tracy Chapman herself with some threatening words if she doesn’t clear the same. Nicki didn’t seem to enthused about the message as she posted it on her own Instagram page with a warning herself to “breathe.”
Nicki shared a brand new Essentials playlist on Apple Music making the announcement of the delay.
My darlings!!! I have a huge surprise that I can’t share until the day before #Queen drops. So in the meantime, check out this playlist I made for you guys. I did #FEFE with my new BFF from BROOKLYN. He’s a little funny looking but he’s really sweet under all those tats. :weary: New York til da DEF!!!! Ha! Last time I teamed up with YG was for his remix to “My Hitta.” We recently performed #BigBank at the BET Awards and had a blast wit my dudes Big Sean and 2 Chainz. I have classic bops with all 3 of them so I’m including them on this list. I’m super excited about my recent collaboration with Ariana Grande. She’s one of the realest artists I’ve had the pleasure of working with. She couldn’t fly with me to Turks to shoot the #BedVideo so we shot her scenes in Malibu. We’re actually working on edit number 2 for the #BedVideo to include all the fun stuff we had to remove. I love “Ball For Me” with Post Malone. Not sure why he won’t release the video. :speaking_head_in_silhouette: It’s DOPE!!! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I hope you enjoy my playlist. Can’t wait for you guys to hear my 4th album QUEEN ON AUGUST 17!!!!!!!
This is the third delay for Queen as it was initially supposed to be released July 15, before being pushed back to August 10.
