Nicki Minaj is bringing a show called Queen Radio to Apple's Beats 1. Minaj tweeted the announcement on Wednesday, confirming that the show will air at 10 p.m. ET on Thursday. "I might have something special for you too," she teased in the tweet.


Minaj is due to release her new album, also titled Queen, on August 17. The album's release date was pushed back a week shortly after she tweeted about being unable to clear a Tracy Chapman sample on one of the songs. Minaj's follow-up to 2014 album The Pinkprint includes the singles "Chun Li" and "Bed" featuring Ariana Grande.
