‘Queen’: New Nicki Minaj Era Draws Mixed Reviews From Fans

Published: Tuesday 12th Jun 2018 by David

August 10th 2018.

The date above is marked in the calendar’s of the millions who call themselves Nicki Minaj fans as it will deliver her next album ‘Queen.’

Unfortunately, it now seems that the handling of the album’s campaign is causing some division and disension in the ranks.

Complaints and compliments below…

The majority Minaj’s supporters were elated to learn that she is to support her new album with a joint-tour (partially powered by the artist Future) and new jams with Lil’ Wayne and Ariana Grande.

Alas, there are some who took to Twitter to feel that they fear her new music and the strategy she’s employed to promote it aren’t befitting of her ‘Queen’ title.

Their biggest criticism? Their feeling that touring with Future does more for him than it does for her and that her new aesthetic is “all over the place.”

Fortunately, there are many who disagree.



Do you agree?

    She is a “CLOWN”, who thinks she can lighten her skin to look almost white then when that does not work — she’s brown again….and selling s*** pics. Girl your music is trash and corny now and its all about CARDI who actually makes fun interesting music…….If NIcki thinks she can Disrespect Cher and Mariah…..she can’t

      @China – Cardi makes fun and interesting music eh? Cardi is a RAT and a H-O. She raps about effing and selling it so spare me this crap about Cardi B being great.

        @super nicki has a song where she brags about dating and having sèx with drug dealers because they give her money and keep her in designer clothes. They’re in the same lane except nicki is fake and makes up stuff and cardi is real and honest about everything. A real bïtçh vs a fake corny one

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 12, 2018

        @Jasmine – How long ago was Nicki’s song and THANK GOD Nicki is FAKE or CORNY in this regard. Who in heck thinks that GLORIFYING being a H-O is cool? Oh yeah, stupid Cardi B fans like YOU, but in the same breath will shake your head and wag your finger at a IG H-O.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 12, 2018

        @super how long ago? Her last album. You don’t remember? Lol most ppl don’t but yes it was the song she was on the cover basically naked in Jordan’s. She a hoeeeee too- no she a wannabe hoeeee which is even worse. Corny, fake and way too old. Just stop it

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 12, 2018

        @super and for the record I don’t like cardi either. I just speak facts. Sorry

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 12, 2018

        @Jasmine – Nicki’s not a “wanna be” h-o. Jesus Christ you really need a life. You have a hard on for ALL THINGS NICKI and it PAINS YOU to see this woman working. Newsflash, she’s not going to stop working or roll over and die just because you people don’t like her.
        #Get Over It

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 12, 2018

        @Jasmine – You like Cardi. Anytime you stated that Card is “real” and that’s why you like her then you’ve already outed yourself. Cardi is thief, h-o with an identity, mindset and appearance of a h-o. Let’s just SPEAK FACTS. Again, all the things you proclaim are PROBLEMS: not writing lyrics, thievery of image and disgusting attitude Cardi EMBODIES. She’s trash but let you people tell it she’s the Lion King.
        #Stop It

        Nicki supposedly doesn’t write lyrics – it’s a problem. Cardi DOES NOT WRITE AND STEALS OTHER PEOPLE FLOW AND LYRICS but it’s NO problem. On and on I can go. I can’t with you people. Just say you hate Nicki and then you can jump off her c*** dude.
        #I SPEAK FACTS

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 12, 2018

        All I said was cardi keeps it real, which she does. Nicki does not. She’s fake corny and pretends like she’s a heaux or that she’s a lèsbian when she’s none of the sort. She’s a corny Braun from queens that made a song saying “füçk skinny bïtches” when in reality without her aśš implants, brèast implants, injections and pads she is naturally a skinny girl- so she’s saying fück her true self- SHES CORNY!

      • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. June 12, 2018

        @Jasmine – Cardi’s disgusting aka “keeping real” and glamorizing a H-O’s lifestyle. Again, don’t down these Insta H-O’s when you praise Cardi’s ratchet identity and behavior, all of which are a mix of OTHER PEOPLE’S image and her NATURAL H-O-ISM. Nicki is Nicki and she’s been the same since she came on the seen. Cardi has had work done too so that’s a non-factor. You’re grasping at straws trying to turn this wet rat into the Lion King because IT-AIN’T-GONNA-HAPPEN.

        @Barb.. – Nope. You are glorifying a H-O but in the same breath try SHAME women who are on IG trying to land a LAME EFFER with money. Which God are you serving? Looks like you are raising up DEVILS like the Hebrews did the Golden Calf. Cardi AIN’T a god or representation of ANYTHING POSITIVE so GTFOOH with that Nicki is the devil, lame etc when if YOU and CARDI were really honest she’s a LAME.

        She steals lyrics, flows and looks but she’s REAL and “honest?” Get real girl because the lies you are telling yourself make you look like a real dumb@**.

    • Lana Del Fan June 12, 2018

      I’m not the biggest Nicki fan, but will take her over Cardi B any day. Cardi is the next Iggy Azalea. After her first album, she’s gonna fall off because all she does is stay on social media “clapping back” at haters. They made her too famous too fast.

    • Ri Ri June 13, 2018

      It’s called lighting and make-up for all the dumb asses that think damn near every black female celebrity is bleaching their skin. I’ve seen several black female artist pics and some they look lighter and then I see others and they look darker. It’s the same with myself some pics I look lighter and some I look darker.#WISENUPPEOPLE

  2. Sza June 12, 2018

    Wack album wack visuals as usual

  3. Who cares June 12, 2018

    An Egyptian album art and then a tour with future… ok girl

  4. Lmfao_Hoe June 12, 2018

    Her era is a mess honestly no hate or shade just PURE facts. She’s been acting like she about to drop a “ CLASSIC “ to which the word has been thrown away too loosely these days or the greatest female album since Miseducation. Like Nicki let the people determine that by whether it has impact and importantly longevity of your quality which sadly isn’t shaping up to be.

    • Lake Erie June 12, 2018

      Exactly… the people always use to determine or declare titles. 9 times out of the 10, the person self proclaiming is usually always off on their interpretations.

  5. Lmfao_Hoe June 12, 2018

    Her fans can’t dispute it either cause it’s true and if ya continue to be ignorant she’ll never truly grow as artist cause ya support the b******* rather instead of challenging her artistry.

  6. ontherun June 12, 2018

    she hyped up this era and dissapeared for half the year only to come back unorganized and all over the place. Honestly what was the point of waiting this long for what she herself called a ‘classic hiphop’ era only for her next single to feautre ariana grande. This album was supposed to cement her as a ‘Queen’ yet shes leaning on future fans to help fill up those arenas and putting out throwaway songs like Barbie Tingz and Rich S**. As a fan I’m dissapointed in her and her teams lack of clear direction and management

    • Lake Erie June 12, 2018

      People need to understand… we are also in a time where you either PUT UP or SHUT UP… she talking entirely too much. IMO, her singles released last spring after the #Shether diss was MUCH better. Like #LIT fr…


        B****…did nas clear that etha record.. no…. but I broke Aretha record

  7. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 12, 2018

    Nicki really is a one trick pony. She gives the same lyric content, visuals and music every single time. No growth which is why she still has no classics

  8. Notearslefttocry June 12, 2018

    My biggest problem is her album cover or title does not match the music she’s putting. It just seems all over the place. Even the features she’s picking. Is album going be any different than the pink print???
    Cmon nicki work on your crafting and cohesion

    • Lake Erie June 12, 2018

      Well.. I think you guy know why she REALLY named the album #QUEEN.. .. it definitely wasn’t in reference to any of the singles or tracks on the album… . .. thats where shes f****** up now. And the people can see it.

  9. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ June 12, 2018

    And you would think after her seeming her last album the equivalent of Jay Z’s “the blueprint”, which it was the furthest thing from, she’d chill on the premature labeling of her albums.

    can we stop with the “articles” that are solely composed of random tweets?

  11. Bad bixxx June 12, 2018

    Who are these random people tweets you’ve chosen to feature in this article? Their opinions hold no weight, I love everything thing about this era and so do my friends that are fans and will be sitting front row at the nickihedrix tour.

    I mean, for it to have been delayed for a year and 7 months I just hope it’s as amazing as she says. Hopefully it sounds more like “Chun-Li” and a lot less like “Rich S**.”

  13. Barb2Barb June 12, 2018

    Gorgeous QUEEN. None of these haters are sh*t, UGLY and mad.

  14. Fancy BISH June 12, 2018

    LMAOOOO ? ? ? ?

  15. Lake Erie June 12, 2018

    They are ALL CORRECT. The other tracks did nothing for me. So just based off the title “Rich S**”… I knew it was about to be some Litty .. but smh. Its whack. No hate, but its whack. Smh. Sounds like a album filler. Idk.. lol. But I think it may be safe to say shes no longer the “ONLY ONE” amongst the elite. She’s definitely in population now. I don’t see this album doing big numbers at all.

    • Barb2Barb June 13, 2018

      UR right TOOTH is a filler.

  16. Ron June 12, 2018

    The album isn’t even out yet. What are y’all even talking about?

  17. Section8DaGreat June 12, 2018

    She can rap but sis can’t make hits. PERIOD!!

    • Mr.StLaurent June 12, 2018

      Superbass / Starship / Anaconda / Moment for life / Pound the alarm / Felling myself / Only and more ?

      • The truth June 12, 2018

        SMH All those songs are pop where is the real hip hop

      • Barb2Barb June 13, 2018

        YAS @Mr.StLaurent …Right Through Me / Beez in the Trap / Check on It / Feeling Myself / Did it on Them / Roman Reloaded

  18. Hoodrat June 12, 2018

    I think this post is unnecessary. All you have done is essentially created another Nicki Minaj hate post where all her haters can gather together and seethe. Nicki Minaj has nothing left to prove.


    Look. I’m the female jay…and my tour’s be selling out on pre. Sale day


    The following people on this Post can ? nixx a** #1 to 30

  21. IG @ mixedboy June 12, 2018

    She went from Asian to Ancient Egyptian in one roll out of a new album. I’m so confused. I’m not even being shady at all.

    • Fancy BISH June 12, 2018

      lol I didn’t even notice that! Lawd, Done Li is trying everything AND the kitchen sink hunnie! ?

  22. justafan June 12, 2018

    if nicki raps about chun li one more time…

  23. DanYiel Iman June 13, 2018

    I’ll be here to watch her fans babble about how she’s the so called queen of pop/rap with ballads & no hit singles!! She’s the queen of Pop/Rap!!??‍♂️

  24. Steve June 13, 2018

    First off don’t tag yourself Queen, let it be the fans that give it to you. Secondly, the album art doesn’t depict a queen, rather a cameleon that is pouching on a tree waiting for it’s next prey. Chun li and Barbie things are good but didn’t quite bring it as expected. I expected a song with anaconda momentum. Rich s** …blah! Lil Wayne falls short too. Can’t wait for the album though, just to hear what she has to offer

  25. FACT Checker June 13, 2018

    The criticism is VALID. She RUSHED to release Chun-Li and Barbie Tings a week after Cardi dropped her album and it SHOWED. An Artist of her Caliber and Status in the industry should’ve been rolling out a Single WITH VIDEO the same day the fact that the visuals weren’t ready for the song release showed it was a rush job then the Barbie Tings song was WEAK and so was the video. It was better off as just an album cut. Chun Li song and video was a BOP but would’ve had way more of an explosive impact on the charts if released the same day also the album cover should’ve been linked in style to the first video release and the fact that she gave an album release date and then pushed back also showed the album was not finished and ready for a properly thought out release again SLOPPY and RUSHED. i think she rushed to do all this because she spent too much time listening to the noise when she should’ve blocked it all out and focused on quality solid music which she has shown time and time again she’s capable of. Also think the song “Rich S**” should’ve been a filler album cut and this joint tour doesn’t seem to fit the narrative of a QUEEN if that was the album title and theme i think a Solo Spotlight was fully needed for the accompanying tour. I blame only part of these issues on her as an Artist but clearly her Team is also asleep at the wheel or not able to logistically reason with her to act within her own best interest. It happens all the time in this industry and I think it’s happening now with her.

    • Hoodrat June 13, 2018

      Her music is selling, so her team must be doing something right.
