Queen is filled with every answer, emotion, confidence boosts and reality checks showing who the queen is and why. As you know, Nicki Minaj is my spirit animal and during this 3 and a half years, all the barbz have been waiting for this masterpiece.
Nicki has been through various situations that contributed to the mixture of club bops, songs that’ll help you after a break-up and of course songs that’ll make you feel like a queen. The entire album is amazing and it was a pleasure to be able to experience the album with the QUEEN herself. The album has 19-tracks and isn’t feature heavy but, the names are heavy. She went and got some of her known favorites for Queen such as Eminem, Ariana Grande, Lil Wayne, Swae Lee and The Weeknd. She also has Future and one of her idols, Foxy Brown, who called into her first episode of Queen Radio last night to say how proud she was of Nicki.
One of Nicki’s favorite songs on the album is ‘LLC,’ filled with jabs and metaphors; Nicki’s flow on this song was crazy. The beat was even better. A fun fact of this song, Nicki played the song for Jay-Z and said the third verse was hard. After hearing this, she was like hmm, time to re-do the ENTIRE song. The advice from Jay made this song even better.
Nicki gets a little emotional after hearing “LLC,” and gives advice to say don’t worry about the people who try to sabotage you.
There’s a song that relates to every mood. Songs like “Thought I Knew You,” and “Run & Hide” will get you in your feelings and might have you thinking about a past relationship but, songs like “Good Form” and “Chun Swae” gets you hype af, feeling like the QUEEN you are! “Good Form,” is the BENZ song that we’ve been waiting for. Nicki says you need to treat the vagina with care, precision and skill — OKAY, ALL FACTS. “Nip Tuck,” is a song that is needed when you’re thinking about going back to that ex.
