Nicki Minaj on the July 2018 Cover of ELLE Magazine

Nicki Minaj has promoting her highly anticipated new album 'Queen' which drops in August 2018. She is the July 2018 cover star of ELLE magazine. On the cover which was shot by Karl Lagerfeld, Nicki is wearing VERSACE FALL 2018. In the issue, she talks her new album, Meek Mill, trap music and so much music. For more on Nicki's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand. 

On her music:
I feel like true icons shift music, uplift music, switch music, have the balls to take a chance. The things that people do come so easy to me. I could do it in my sleep. But I’m such a perfectionist that when something is too easy to me, I actually feel guilty. It would’ve been so easy to listen to all the trap music out there right now and say, ‘Let me just copy this,’. But I wouldn’t have been able to live with myself.

On trap music:
The truth of the matter is, trap has taken over so much that even our New York rappers are doing nothing but trap songs, because they feel that that’s the way to make it. They’re rapping like people from down south.

On her working on her album 'Queen':
I really think it’s gonna be the best album of the year. I went through a moment where I got to know myself again, and then I went through a moment where I got to know myself as the rapper again. And then I locked [myself] in the studio—see?—and I didn’t want to leave. Spiritually, I’ve experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years.
