Album Review: Nicki Minaj "Queen"
Nicki Minaj: - Queen -Review
Young Money/ Cash Money Records
Release date : August 10 2018
Score : 7.5
What Queen delivers is the simple reassurance Minaj is not going to be dethroned any time soon.
With the most Billboard Hot 100 entries among women in All Genres, Minaj certainly earned the title of Queen and has delivered yet again a stellar album that showcases her seemingly effortless range, highlighting both her singing ability and her rapping skills.
The album did not however come together without a myriad of controversies, twitter cat fights and disillusioned ferocious critics making in a way the declaration of self worth that underlines the entire album speak a little bit louder.
This is particularly true in the opening track , Ganja Burn, a deeply emotional song gift wrapped in a beautiful and almost fragile melody.
Majesty and Barbie Dreams showcase a more fierce and in your face version of herself which seems to be on top of her lyrical game.
I Think LLC is THE GOLDEN Track on the album, it is fun, in you face and just lyrically perfectly cut throat, I would even go as far as naming this one of her best song period.
I can say a 20 song album is kind of a reach but overall she pulls it off, a few tracks don't shine quite as bright but I still consider this album to be a gem in her catalogue.
