Attention Barbz! Nicki Minaj dropped a limited assortment of merchandise this Thursday (Aug. 11.) to mark the long-awaited return to her beloved radio show.
The merch for women, which is sold exclusively on the Amazon Queen Radio storefront, consists of a Black T-shirt ($35) and a black hoodie ($60) with a vibrant image that features Minaj in the front wearing pink hair and a splash of turquoise. Both come in sizes from S to XXL. Prices are subject to change while supplies are available.
Queen Radio will make its return on Thursday, at 10:00 p.m. ET/7 p.m. in the PT time zone through the Amazon Amp app. She announced the rapper’s collaboration in March with Amazon as well as the return of Queen Radio back in March.
“I am very excited to be partners with Amazon on bringing back Queen Radio,” Minaj stated on Instagram Live in the moment according to Complex. “Queen Radio has always been something that’s important to me. Naturally, there were times when I’ve thought of not wanting to be a part of Queen Radio or any radio at all but why?”
Minaj will perform her brand new song “Super Freaky Girl” during the event and will receive calls from her fans.
The 39-year-old rapper is busy this summer. Along with the return of Queen Radio back, Minaj performed at Essence Fest and Wireless Festival in July. She also teamed up along with Drake as well as Lil Wayne for a Young Money reunion at the October World Weekend in Toronto last weekend. In the coming months, Minaj will receive the sought-after Video Vanguard Award at the 2022 VMAs.
“Nicki has broken barriers for women in hip-hop with her versatility and creative artistry,” Bruce Gillmer, Paramount’s chief of music programming, music talent, and events, as well as Paramount+ chief of content, music declared in an announcement. “She has shifted the music industry and cemented her status as a global superstar with her crossover appeal, genre-defying style and continuing to be unapologetic ‘Nicki’.”
The fans can see Minaj receiving the Video Vanguard Award when the MTV VMAs air on Sunday, August. 28.
