Nicki Minaj is roughly two months away from dropping her fourth studio album Queen. Before its August 10 release, Black Barbie shared the cover art, which features her adorned in Egyptian garb sitting atop a tree branch.
Like the internet does, it took the Mert and Marcus photo and made it its own. Minaj stumbled across at least three variations of the Queen album cover, including one with an Egyptian “king” photoshopped next to her and one with Superbad actor Micheal Cera taking her place.
On Saturday (June 9), Minaj replied on Twitter to one of the latest incarnations with, “Lemme fkn tell y’all smthn. This wtf we NOT gon do. Block me back bitch and who wrote blacki Minaj? I just wanna talk.”

But that wasn’t the end of it. More alternate Queen covers continued popping up online, including one with Drake’s head placed on a camel’s body.
