​Every fan knows the basics: Nicki Minaj announced her next album, Queen, will be released on June 15th. She has already come out with hit singles "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li," which will be included.

The rapper has not yet released a tracklist or the cover art, but here is everything else we do know about Queen:


During a Zane Lowe interview, Nicki said the bulk of her work on the album began in December 2017, though some songs were written as far back as a year and a half ago.

She also said Apple Music will release a documentary about the making of Queen.


The 35-year-old singer has already worked on many collaborations, but has hinted there are more to come on this new album. Ariana Grande and Nicki ​have been hinting at a collab on their Instagram stories, though it’s unclear whether this team-up will appear on Queen or Ariana's upcoming album, Sweetener.


When announcing her album title, Nicki also shared she has a “secret” with Madonna.

We'll have to wait and see what surprises Nicki's got for us when Queen comes out next month, but it'll definitely be worth the wait.
