Today, Nicki Minaj released her highly-anticipated album Queen, a 19-track tour de force of driven beats and lyrics with a freshly focused, new era Minaj voice.

The Queen of Rap takes her fans on a journey with this album starting the engine with the sway-inducing "Ganja Burns" followed by "Majesty" featuring Labrinth and icon living Eminem. Other features on the album include The Weeknd, Ariana Grande, Lil Wayne, Swae Lee, and Future. The album hits its climax at the end with the hard-hitting, fashion-forward banger "Coco Chanel" featuring one of the fore-mothers to the rap game, Foxy Brown.

Setting all hype aside, the most important takeaway from this release is that Nicki Minaj is back and her fire as an artist is burning brighter than ever. V couldn't be more proud, and we're excited to have our Queen back!
