New York, NY

As Nicki Minaj made her grand entrance at the Met Gala on Monday (May 7), she shared some news her fans have been waiting for.

During a red carpet interview at New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, Minaj casually announced the release date for her highly anticipated album — the aptly titled Queen — is June 15.

“It’s a big night for me because I just let the world know that my album is coming June 15 and it’s called Queen, and I can’t wait,” Minaj said. “I’m dressed like a queen every day, all day.”

Queen marks the Trinidadian-born rapper’s fourth album and follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint.

Over the past few weeks, Minaj has dropped two singles and three videos for “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” two tracks that will likely appear on the upcoming album.

Despite Minaj blaming Cardi B for the “MotorSport” drama, Minaj and a very pregnant Cardi were spotted together at the event looking like old friends.

Migos, Donald Glover/Childish Gambino and Wiz Khalifa were among the many high profile artists also in attendance.  [apple_news_ad type=”any”]
