Queen’s royalty Nicki Minaj is having a time in Trinidad since landing there for Carnival a few days ago. The Barbz leader reportedly performed for the festivities, her first time gracing the stage there since her 2020 appearance. Following the release of her first feature of 2023 on “Shake The Place (Remix),” Mrs. Petty hopped on Instagram to update fans on her return. “We’ll talk soon, barbz. Promise. Love you,” she captioned the post with an accompanying unicorn emoji.
Now it appears fans will be hearing from the rap legend herself next week. Today, Minaj uploaded a photo of herself and a caption mentioning her Apple Music show, Queen Radio, with a date. “#QueenRadio 3/3 @3pm PST,” it reads. “Bad gyal don’t die die die | Hunnit rounds on that gratata.” Additionally, the Trini lyricist is steady giving viewers glimpses of Carnival in her home country. Yesterday (Feb. 21), Nicki posted photos and videos from the fete, where she donned a custom-made, purple and pink costume.
Nicki Minaj’s Queen Radio Is Back This March
Recently, EPIC Records A&R Vice President Fly Ty made an announcement of his own about the Queen. In a since-expired Instagram Story, the exec revealed he’d spoken to Nicki Minaj about major plans in the works. “Just got off the phone with my sister… This move is about to be so big for Queens,” he wrote. “We[‘re] bringing it back to the drawing board!!!! Call Webb, then call Nitty | Queens n***as and its all hoodies.” While there’s no word on what exactly to expect, fans are hoping this all results in an album this year. It’s been five years since Nicki dropped Queen, her fourth and latest studio release.
In other news, the self-proclaimed “Super Freaky Girl” continues to receive praise from other female musicians when it comes to her longevity in the game. Last month, Ice Spice admitted to bumping Nicki Minaj’s The Pinkprint album, calling it a “given” on her playlists. Even singer Lil Mo celebrated the worldwide star during her recent debacle with rapper Latto. “Imma be real honest, “ Mo began. “You can’t compare a Latto to a Nicki, ’cause Nicki been in the game. So when [Minaj] say, ‘All these b*tches is my sons,’ people like, ‘Oh, she throwin’ shots.’ No! Because before her, she bows at Lauryn Hill.”
