Nicki originally announced that her latest album, Queen, would be released June 15. Since then Nicki has postponed the release date to August 10, now the ‘Chun Li’ rapper has postponed the release yet again.

In a Twitter post Minaj explained why she was considering another album delay. “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 my record and keep the date? do we push back #Queen 1week? Ugh! I’m torn, y’all help” Nicki posted.

She then turned to fans to vote on whether or not she should keep the record and move her release date.

“Since I may have asked it wrong. 🤭🦄 vote. You guys can only imagine how much this means to me. It’s such a perfect body of work 🎈love you. Long time,” She posted asking for the votes.

Minaj and fans reached out to Tracy Chapman asking him to message her so they could work out an agreement but Minaj revealed that she would indeed be pushing back the album release date once again.

“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. — 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. — It’s DOPE!!! — I hope you enjoy my playlist. Can’t wait for you guys to hear my 4th album QUEEN ON AUGUST 17!!!!!!!” Nicki Minaj announced.

As mentioned in the announcement above, the new anticipated release date for Queen is August 17.
