Playboi Carti released his new album called ‘Die Lit’ and it includes a song with Nicki called “Poke It Out”. The song is very catchy and Nicki’s verse is slaying! Listen to it on Spotify (Player below) or YouTube, the Video below should be working, it just doesn’t have any Images.
Billboard.com released the following article about Nickis upcoming album ‘Queen’:
It’s been more than three years since Nicki Minaj released a full-length album. Since dropping 2014’s The Pinkprint, a lot of female rappers have sought to claim the throne that Minaj’s ample backside comfortably sat in with no challengers in sight: Rapsody, Cardi B and her arch nemesis Remy Ma are among the names that have stepped up to stake their claim as the best in the game during Minaj’s absence. But on June 15, Minaj will make her much-anticipated return to take back the crown.
After taking some time off to do a little acting (2014’s The Other Woman and 2016’s Barbershop: The Next Cut), a little touring (2015’s The Pinkprint Tour), a little loving (relationships with Safaree and Meek Mill) and a little feuding (her much-publicized drama with Remy Ma and a brief rift with Miley Cyrus), Onika Tanya Maraj is ready to reclaim what she believes that she never lost — with an appropriately titled LP, Queen.
Minaj announced her forthcoming album and its June 15th release date while walking the red carpet at this year’s Met Gala, a few weeks after buzzing her competition on April 12th by dropping a pair of braggadocious singles with “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz.” But what should we expect from her latest outing? We’ll find out next month, but for now here’s what we’d like to hear when Queen finally drops.
Look, there’s nothing wrong with singing and Minaj actually fares quite well when she puts her vocal chops to work. However, with so many rappers gunning for her crown, the Young Money artist needs to put her best foot forward when it comes to spitting rhymes. She’s demonstrated on numerous occasions that her lyrical prowess is to be respected and now is not the time for her to ease off the gas and allow her competition to pass her up.
Calling Out Names
Nicki Minaj has been tied to beefs that the world is well aware of (Remy Ma) and beefs that people are assuming she’s embroiled in (Cardi B). One way or another, Nicki needs to tackle these feuds head-on. There’s no need for her to throw subliminal jabs at Remy Ma when Remy made it clear who she was taking aim at. If there’s no beef with Cardi B, let’s put it to rest. Remy Ma’s “Shether” still stings so it would be appropriate for Minaj to fire back something that has a little more lyrical blunt force trauma than “No Frauds.” But, let’s be clear, this doesn’t need to be an all-out assault on every woman in Hip-Hop, which leads us to the next things we’d like to see…

Cardi B Opens About Her Met Gala Conversation With Nicki Minaj: ‘I Never Was Feuding With Anybody’
A Song With Cardi B, Rapsody and Young M.A.
Yeah, we know this is a long shot, but wouldn’t it be dope to get a little U.N.I.T.Y. on a song? The media is quick to put all female rappers against one another, and it’s pretty unfair. Of course, the Remy Ma beef is real, but why not bring together some of the top rapper chicks together for a song just to prove that Nicki is above the nonsense?
The Obligatory Song With Drake & Lil Wayne
You can’t have a Nicki Minaj album without a song featuring her brothers at Young Money, can you? The Pinkprint gave us “Truffle Butter” and “Only,” which were both certified bangers. It only makes sense for this trio to reunite and deliver yet another wicked collaboration. “No Frauds” was cool, but we’ve come to expect greatness from these three.
A Song With Lauryn Hill
Back in 2016, Nicki Minaj met Lauryn Hill backstage at JAY-Z & Beyonce’s Tidal X charity concert. Minaj immediately hit her knees and shed a few tears upon meeting the woman who took the world by storm with The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill nearly two decades ago. As mentioned earlier, Minaj certainly needs to draw the line in the sand with Remy Ma, but should also be at the forefront of bringing women in hip-hop together. L-Boogie is a name that can’t be shared with other people, and it would be great to see the rap game’s current reigning queen alongside one who paved the way for her nearly 20 years to the date that Ms. Hill dropped her now-iconic solo album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. We don’t know what the hell it would sound like, but with two of hip-hops strongest forces coming together, it’d surely be a collaboration for the history books.
Billboard.com released the following article about Nicki and Cardi B at the Met Gala:
On Monday night, the hip-hop universe exploded when a photo of Nicki Minaj and Cardi B engaging peacefully in a conversation at the Met Gala surfaced. In one photo, the two can be seen speaking to each other in conversation, while the the second flick captures them both in a goofy selfie.
In a new interview with Howard Stern’s Sirius XM radio show Wednesday morning (May 9), Cardi explained what took place Monday night when she and Nicki linked up.
“I never was feuding with anybody; there was a misunderstanding,” Cardi said when asked if she and Minaj were beefing. “I think she felt a certain type of way about something. I definitely felt a certain type of way about something,” she lamented. “I didn’t wanna ever talk about it in public because I felt like we gonna see each other again and we will talk about it, and it’s always like little issues. The thing is, it’s always little issues, but you know, fans are always gonna make it a big thing.” Then, she pointed out how important it was for them both to meet in person and iron out the wrinkles in their relationship.
“I spoke to her about it,” she added. “I spoke to her at the Met Gala about it, and it’s just like, see? It’s just something that had to be talked about because it was an issue.” When Stern grilled her about what the problem was, Cardi refused to spill any details regarding their rift. “I’m not gonna talk about it, but I really feel a certain type of way,” she said. “My feelings was really hurt, and I was just on some, ‘You know what? This is why I just keep to myself. This is why I cannot fuck with nobody.'”
Finally, Cardi took aim at the media, who relished in her back-and-forth ordeal with Minaj. “The media, they just so thirsty to put women in hip-hop — not just women in hip-hop, color women — against each other,” she said. “I don’t understand why they do that and why they want to do that. Like, I’ve seen so many Hispanic artists — females — work with each other, and it benefits them so well.”
As I post this, Chun-Li is still the #5 on the YouTube Trends. Congrats Nicki!
Nicki teased her Fans with a short Clip from the ‘Chun Li’ Music Video. Check it out below. And FYI: I will be on vacation till next Sunday (May 07), I don’t think I will be able to post News, but I will add what’s really important, as soon as I can.

As previously reported, Nicki Minaj blasts 92-10 on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated April 28) with “Chun-Li,” her first top 10 on which she’s unaccompanied by another artist since “Anaconda,” which she took to No. 2 in September 2014.
“Chun-Li” leaps following its first full week of tracking; it debuted on the April 21-dated Hot 100 from a day of streaming and sales tracking and four days of radio airplay monitoring, after its April 12 release. It launches at No. 14 on the Streaming Songs chart (22.1 million U.S. streams in the April 13-19 tracking week, up from 3.5 million in its first day, according to Nielsen Music) and jumps 16-4 on Digital Song Sales (38,000 downloads sold, up from 20,000), as it logs the Hot 100’s top gains in streaming and sales.
Minaj tallies her 16th Hot 100 top 10, extending her record for the most among female rappers; Missy Elliott ranks second with nine.
