Nicki Minaj brings her popular Queen Radio show off Amazon’s new streaming app, Amp. The entertainer shared news of the show’s revival, which was previously an Apple Music exclusive, on his Instagram Live.
Launched in 2018, Queen Radio ran for 17 episodes and saw Minaj sit down with Ariana Grande, 50 Cent, Chance the Rapper and more. The show aired its last episode in 2020.
“I’m very excited to be partnering with Amazon to bring back Queen Radio“, said Minaj during the live broadcast. “Queen Radio is something that is very close to my heart.
“Of course, there were times when I thought about not wanting to do Queen Radio or any radio for that matter, but why not? she continued.
Similar to Clubhouse, Amazon’s Amp is a free, downloadable live streaming service that lets artists DJ while chatting with listeners. The service has partnered with three major music labels – Universal, Sony and Warner – as well as independent companies.
Fans in the US can download the Amp beta using Minaj’s exclusive access code.
In addition to Minaj, Pusha-T, Tinashe, Lil Yachty, Travis Barker and Big Boi are among those who have their own Amp radio shows.
