Nicki Minaj has been steadily teasing the release of a new album for a minute at this point. Earlier in the year, she took a hiatus from social media to focus working on it and came back in the public eye to release two new singles, "Chun-Li" and "Barbie Tingz." Since then, she announced her album Queen with a release date set for June 15th. Unfortunately for fans, that might not be the case as she just announced that she pushed back the release date for her long awaited project.

Nicki Minaj teased fans with a special announcement over the past few days and earlier today, she hit Instagram Live for her fans. The rapper revealed that her new album, Queen won't be coming out on June 15th as previously announced. Instead, the project will be dropping on August 10th. She just confirmed the date on Twitter.

However, instead of dropping the album on the 15th, she did reveal in the live stream that she'll be sharing three different surprises from June 11th to 15th, according to XXL. One of them is expected to be the cover art for the project.

Despite the delay, Nicki insisted that she's making the project as perfect as possible for her fans while implying their could be some complications with her label as well as the beats on the project.

Keep your eyes peeled for more news on Nicki's new project, Queen and upcoming tour dates.
