The rapper strikes down her enemies in the latest video from new album Queen
The video leans into the album’s Cleopatra-esque imagery, opening with a prologue that recounts a beef of epic proportions: Minaj plays a Queen – a Generous Queen – who is betrayed by her enemies. These snakes take the Generous Queen down, but then she resurrects both herself and her haters and smites them. The video was directed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, who also created the Queen artwork.
Just listened to #GangaBurns after a long day & realized that I hate how low I made the hook. Gotta get it swapped out. That’s like my fave song & I can’t let it go out like that😩. Plus I was so sleep deprived I wrote burns instead of burn when they were stressing me 4 tracklist— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 11, 2018
Queen features guests like Lil Wayne, Eminem, Ariana Grande, Future, and the Weeknd. Over the weekend, Minaj tweeted that she wanted to get the hook of “Ganja Burn” swapped out because she “hate(d) how low” she made it. She also said she made a typo in the track name because of how sleep-deprived she was, initially calling it “Ganja Burns”. She still considers the track her favourite song on the album.
