Music and lyrics Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_section_1

Queen is a hip hop album that also contains elements of trap, dancehall, reggae, pop, and R&B. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_22

The opening track "Ganja Burn" is a reggae-inspired island-pop song, in which Minaj defends her position in the music industry. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_23

The following track "Majesty", featuring Eminem and Labrinth, is a pop-rap song that "sinks under dated piano chords, melodramatic string swells and a grating vocal hook." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_24

The third track, "Barbie Dreams", samples The Notorious B.I.G.'s 1994 song "Just Playing (Dreams)". Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_25

While The Notorious B.I.G. rapped about his sexual desire for popular R&B singers, Minaj roasts male artists, including Drake, ex-boyfriend Meek Mill, Eminem, DJ Khaled, 50 Cent, Young Thug, Swae Lee, Lil Uzi Vert, Fetty Wap, Quavo, Desiigner, Future, and YG. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_26

Minaj clarified that the track only targets individuals she loves, and claimed it is not actually a diss track. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_27

"Rich Sex", featuring Lil Wayne, is a trap song, in contrast to R&B song "Thought I Knew You" which "sports some of Queen's lushest production." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_28

In "Thought I Knew You", The Weeknd, a featured artist on the track, contribute to the lament over estranged lovers with Weeknd's "buttery tenor serving as the perfect counterpoint to [Minaj's] clipped, Auto-Tuned raps and distorted vocals." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_29

Swae Lee, of hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd, is also featured on the album. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_30

Brendan Klinkenberg of Rolling Stone opines that Lee steals the spotlight on this track with his "delicate falsetto" with Minaj "deploying clearly demarcated, darting verses." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_31

Minaj named their song "Chun Swae" after her collaborator. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_32

Foxy Brown is featured in the track "Coco Chanel". Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_38

Andree Gee from Uproxx asserted that their collaboration in the "swaggering" track remained "true to both rapper's Trini roots, with dancehall inspired drums fused over ominous keys." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_39

Queen was met with generally favorable reviews from critics. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_87

At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 70, based on 22 reviews. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_88

Ella Jukwey of The Independent wrote that Queen is "the most important album of Minaj's career so far. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_89

It's the first time in her career that she has faced real opposition, and this latest record suggests that competition brings out the best in her. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_90

It may lack cohesion at certain points, but one thing is never in doubt: Minaj is still one of the best in her field." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_91

Reviewing for Vice, Robert Christgau said Minaj's album and Eminem's 2018 Kamikaze record are "quick-lipped, sharp-tongued arguments for the hip-hop they and I came up on and the endangered kind of flow both excel at. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_92

And both are funny, outrageous, self-confident announcements that neither artist has any intention of going away." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_93

For Billboard, Kathy Iandoli stated that Queen "exists to exemplify Nicki's proven longevity, which is enough of a rarity to finally declare her as well-deserved rap royalty", although was critical of the album's length. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_94

Briana Younger of Pitchfork gave the album a positive review, stating "the connections between past and present, between style and form, make Queen feel like her most creatively honest album." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_95

Erin Lowers from Exclaim! Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_96

gave the album a generally positive review, saying it highlighted the rapper's "ability to adapt to an ever-changing sonic landscape," and concluding that Minaj wasn't going anywhere anytime soon. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_97

In a mixed review, Bryan Rolli of Forbes concluded that Queen is "a great 10-song album hiding inside a messy 19-song album", though complimented Minaj's lyricism, and said the album "gives fans plenty to sink their teeth into." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_98

In Los Angeles Times, Mikael Wood felt Minaj "spends so much time describing her dominance that a clear conclusion is that she fears it's beginning to erode [...] all the back-in-my-day stuff suggests a lack of confidence in her unique perspective." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_99

For The Washington Post, Chris Richards said, "Queen only feels connected to the current rap zeitgeist in the saddest way — as another portrait of a visionary rapper in decline [...] A great Nicki Minaj comeback album would be the first great Nicki Minaj album, period." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_100

Carl Anka of NME wrote, "Unfortunately, in trying to take on all comers at once, there are parts of Queen that feel like an overreach. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_101

There is a better ten track effort hiding in Queen, but you get the impression Nicki kept tracks like "Miami" to hedge her bets in a bid for streaming success." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_102

Mosi Reeves of Rolling Stone wrote that Queen "brings a new Nicki Minaj character: the regal, haughty monarch, a woman who insists on sword-sharpened rhymes as a prerogative for excellence", however noted it to have "a flabby, meandering mid-section." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_103

In an unfavorable review, The Hollywood Reporter's Jonny Coleman deemed the album "[a] joyless mess" and summarized, "Minaj doesn't really investigate any of her issues with herself or others in any meaningful way on the new album. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_104

When all is said and done, it's just another playlist of disconnected mish-mash bangers that we'll probably forget in two weeks." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_105

An article of The New York Times noted the album's first two singles "have failed to stick commercially." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_106

The Atlantic's Spencer Kornhaber criticized its lyrical content, writing, "When Minaj raps on "Hard White" that she "ain't ever have to strip to get the pole position," it's a clear knock on the former exotic dancer who's outcharting her lately, but it also undermines Minaj's broader position that women who use sex appeal and their brains deserve respect. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_107

Rather than attacking the system that has all along made Minaj feel inadequate, she spends her energy building it up and passes her damage right along. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_108

Is there a smarter way?" Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_109

Online hip hop publication HipHopDX criticised the album for a lack of depth and its run time: "Nicki Minaj has excelled to the point where Onika Maraj has resorted to being an alter ego when it comes to public appearances and the music. Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_110

There are no deep layers to be uncovered on Queen." Queen (Nicki Minaj album)_sentence_111
