On Thursday night, Nicki Minaj launched her very first episode of Queen Radio, an exclusive live event by Apple Music.
The show was LIT from beginning to end with Nicki’s amazing energy being felt through the phone! She answered a few questions from fans, had a few phone calls from celebs including rap queen, Foxy Brown, and one by one she revealed what celeb female friends she had in the building. With each secret guest being revealed, the vibe in the room seemed to elevate even greater! The love & appreciation Nicki held for these women & they for her, was definitely noticed.
The scene was set with pink lights & free liquor as Nicki was joined in the studio by some of the top women in #BlackGirlMagic right now including Kelly Rowland, Cassie, Lauren London, Justine Sky, Normadie, Draya, model Winnie Harlow, Basketball Wive Tami Roman, singer Sevyn Streeter & even Mrs. Kim Kardashian West. Yo Gotti was the only man in sight! Isnt he lucky!
As the show went on, it was revealed that this show was supposed to be a listening party for Nicki’s fourth Studio Album Queen, but being that Nicki had just turned in the final project only 3 hours prior, he label was giving her a hard time about the turn around rate. Nicki was so livid about the release time going from 12a midnight to 12 noon the next morning, that she called a label rep live on air. He explained that there were still parts missing from the project and that people all around the world were working to make sure her album would drop ASAP. Nicki quickly snapped back at him the tone he used with her, but eventually took the situation for what it was & decided she would sleep right there in the Apple Music studios until 8a pacific time/ 11a eastern time, the next morning so she would be able to do the official release & listening party live with her fans, as she originally planned.
Are you ready for #Queen?
