Nicki Minaj returned to Beats 1 with another episode of Queen Radio, this time live from London. Like every episode, this one served as a space for the Queens rapper to select tracks from her Essentials playlist and chime in with some thoughts.
A collection of mostly Minaj tracks and tracks with Minaj features played for about 90 minutes before she appeared, explaining that she was delayed in traffic. During the show, she introduced a handful of British artists: Ms. Banks, Stylo G, Lisa Mercedez, and Yxng Bane, who was a special guest during her London concert on Monday night.
Minaj has had a rough go of it lately. Last month, she had to postpone a date on her European tour with Juice WRLD due to electrical issues. “We've been trying for hours to get the show to work, and the building says they don't have the power in this building to make this show work,” she shared with her fans in Bratislava, Slovakia, and thanked them for coming. She had to cancel another show in Bordeaux, France on Saturday due to similar issues.
But it looks like Minaj has been putting in work. A G.O.O.D. Music engineer revealed on Friday that Nicki is featured on a women’s empowerment-focused track from Kanye’s hopefully forthcoming Yandhi project. The song is purportedly titled “New Body” and also features Ty Dolla Sign. The track is said to be Kim K-inspired too.
