Nicki Minaj fans have been left confused and frustrated over the tracklist for her upcoming album Queen because of one major detail: it does not include the single “Barbie Tingz.”
Queen isn’t expected to be out until August 10, but the tracklist is up on the iTunes pre-order page. The list has only three confirmed tracks: “Chun-Li,” the Lil Wayne collaboration “Rich Sex,” and her most recent song with Ariana Grande “Bed.” “Barbie Tingz” is not included on the 19-track album, which has left fans baffled considering the song was released as a single in tandem with “Chun-Li.” According to Uproxx, it is standard for iTunes to only feature song titles for released singles before an album is released.
It’s possibly the rapper did not include the track on the album because it didn’t take off quite as well as “Chun-Li,” which went gold in late May. Queen, which will be released via Young Money Records and Cash Money Records, was initially slated for a June 15 release date. On May 24, Minaj announced on Twitter that the album’s new day of release will be August 10.
About two weeks later, Minaj unveiled the cover art for Queen, which was shot by Mert and Marcus.
Minaj and Future will kick off their joint NICKIHNDRXX Tour in September and it will last at least through late March.
