Nicki Minaj’s Queen Radio Sets Apple Music Record

All hail the Queen.

Nicki Minaj’s Queen Radio is breaking records. The latest episode of her Beats 1 show, which aired on June 21, was the most listened to show of the year on Apple Music, according to Minaj. Taking to social media, she reflected on the accomplishment.

“I started doing #QueenRadio to have a lil fun w/my fans. I now have the most listened to show on Apple Music,” she tweeted. “I don’t think ppl understand. Don’t put limits on yourself. Please. I love you guys so much for the love & support. I’m from South Side Jamaica Queens, NYC. like what?”

The “Megatron” rapper launched her Queen Radio show in August 2018 to coincide with the release of her fourth album Queen. The 13 explosive episodes have featured candid commentary from Minaj, as well as celebrity interviews and new music.

In addition to Minaj, Beats 1 is home to radio shows from Drake, The Weeknd, DJ Khaled, Travis Scott, Pharrell, Frank Ocean, and Elton John.

Minaj will celebrate the milestone by hosting another episode of Queen Radio on Friday at 12 p.m. PST. She has also released her “Island Girl” playlist featuring some of her favorite dancehall songs.

Last Friday, Minaj hosted a special episode of Queen Radio on L.A. radio station Power 106 during which she premiered her remix to Lil Baby’s “Suge.”
