nicki minaj queen lyrics

In a male dominated industry, Nicki Minaj's Queen has come to pay her respects, to make some noise and to remind us why she might actually be The Queen of rap.

Have you ever heard the expression “after the storm comes a calm”? Well, what if it were the other way around? What if we just had enough of “a calm” and were ready for the storm?


Nicki Minaj, the Trinidadian thunder has come louder than ever: she has just become the first female rapper to reach no.1 on iTunes in 62 countries; ever. It's been a short career for Minaj if we consider she got her big break till 2011. Four albums later, we know she came here to stay. In a music genre dominated by men, Minaj proves, once again, that she still has some rhymes to drop.

nicki minaj queen lyrics 1


Not sure if she has earned the right to call herself The Queen of rap. Sure, she’s not the first, and she may not be the best (yet) but sure she's made a stage on her own. The Queen, probably a better material than the rather disappointing Pinkprint, is her fourth studio album and sure caught us all by surprise. Ariana Grande, Eminem, and The Weekend are just a few names of her collaborators.


However, “Barbie Dreams” samples, as she has done before, “Just Playing (Dreams)” by the legendary Notorious B.I.G. The track has earned a special place for those rap purists, and sure has thrilled many as Nick pays her respects. The most influential women in the rap industry has returned and we can't wait for fans to lose their heads. If you haven’t had the chance to listen to it, here are some remarkable lyrics from her album that sure will become trademarks and will leave you begging for more.




Ganja Burn

"You gotta have real skill, gotta work for that

If it's really your passion would you give the world for that?"


Majesty

Gotta be dumb to make me your rival

'Cause I'm too powerful, yeah, you not powerful


Rich Sex

Rich who? Got bricks, too

The rich get richer, that's my ritual


Hard White

'Cause they know I'm the queen, I still didn't pick an heiress


Bed

You say I'm the GOAT, yeah, the billy on you



Chun Swae

This bitch is really the fucking Queen

I love my fans, I love you so much


LLC

I feel like I'm King Kong, name still going ding-dong


Come see about me

I’m opening the limelight

You know I’m still trying to find it in the limelight


Sir

Miss Aretha, I think I just passed her (passed her)


Miami

Too much money, I ain't never need a sugar daddy

I'm the Belle of the ball, you could call me Patty
