Nicki Minaj's new album Queen is closer than ever— or at least, it might be. Back at the Met Gala in May, Nicki announced the project would be out June 15th. That date was eventually pushed back to August 10, next Friday. But it appears as though that could change, again.

On Tuesday night, Nicki took to her Twitter account to confess that she was unaware one of the album's songs features a sample from Tracy Chapman. Furthermore, she says the track also "features 1 of the greatest rappers of all time" and described it as having "mad tea." She then offered her follower's a poll with two choices: "keep date/lose record," or "keep record/push date 1 wk." You can vote here.
