The queen from Queens debuted her new single, Megatron, earlier this week. Though the date hasn’t been revealed yet, Minaj promises her fifth album will be out soon. In the meantime though, she gave fans a taste of her talent by playing the Wheel of Freestyle on the show.

This interview follows Minaj trolling the 2019 BET Awards, which had only half the amount of viewers as the 2018 award show. Minaj was set to perform but dropped the gig after a shady tweet that pit Cardi B and Nicki Minaj against each other.
When u go out of ur way to b spiteful & hurt artists who have always supported ur show… when you fire great ppl who have put their heart & soul into the show… when you’d rather be a messy reality show than a prestigious award show… when ur still being dragged by that lace https://t.co/DOYKmgAlyr— MEGATRON (@NICKIMINAJ) June 27, 2019
For now, Minaj is focusing on promoting her upcoming unnamed album. Fans can likely expect Minaj’s signature pop-rap, as well as a few big name collaborations and features. Hopefully, it will be well worth the wait!
