Queen Is Back! Nicki Minaj has revealed the cover art for her fourth album Queen. The striking image, shot by Mert and Marcus, finds the rapper perched on a tree while channeling an Egyptian queen in a beaded headdress and only pasties covering her breasts.

Originally due June 15, the follow-up to 2014’s The Pinkprint will now arrive Aug. 10 featuring the singles “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz.” “My greatest work to date,” Nicki told fans. “Thank you for your patience & love.”
Ahead of the release, she will perform at the BET Awards on June 24 and headline Made in America in September before launching a tour of her own this fall.
A pre-order for Queen will hit retailers next week.
