Nicki Minaj has had to once more push back the release of her long-awaited Queen album.

Originally, her fourth studio album was supposed to drop on June 15 but was pushed to August 10 back in May. The album now has a new release date of August 17. It's likely due to a Tracy Chapman sample that went unnoticed.

Nicki is set to tour with Future on their NICKIHNDRXX tour taking off September 21 from Baltimore, Maryland.

We'll give you a listen to Queen as soon as it's released. In the meantime, this track is sure to be on the album:
