Love her or hate her, you have to admit Nicki has been killing it lately on social media. From dropping singles to hyping up her #Queen album dropping August, Onika has had a lot on her plate with making her fans happy. Many are thrilled Minaj is returning back from her four-year hiatus, with the exception of her iconic features on songs such as Motorsport or Rake It Up.
Twitter was set on fire when Nicki dropped her album cover and name – Queen. She appreciates African, more specifically North African, culture. The cover photo was shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who has shot for American Vogue, Vanity Fair and many more prominent “big-time” magazines.

Minaj is very proud of her new album. even calling it her “best work yet.” Though that is still up for debate, the general outlook of her recent songs has been nothing but positive. Just on Monday, June 11, 2018, she dropped a song featuring Lil Wayne called “Rich Sex.” It’s a surprise to many to see Wayne back behind the microphone since he was reported to be suffering from epileptic seizures just last year.

Along with her collaboration with Lil Wayne, Minaj is also dropping a song Thursday, June 14th feat. Ariana Grande. Both stars have a very strong and adorable relationship that you do not see a lot of in the music industry. Nicki genuinely sees Ariana as a daughter or little sister-like figure in her life. Both have been working together for years, ending up with hits like “Side to Side,” “Bang Bang” and “Get On Your Knees.”
Onika also had some extra surprises up her sleeve, starting with releasing “Queen” and “Chun Li” merchandise available here.
