Trinidadian-American rapper Onika Tanya Maraj, 35, who is professionally known as Nicki Minaj, released her fourth studio album titled “Queen” on August 10, 2018. Among the featured artists in the album is Detroit rapper Marshall Bruce Matthers III, 45, who is professionally known as Eminem.

“Queen” has 19 tracks, seven of which are collaboration songs. One of the collaborations songs is titled “Majesty” featuring Eminem and British rapper Timothy Lee McKenzie, 29, who is professionally known as Labrinth.

Eminem and Labrinth co-produced “Majesty.” The co-wrote the song with Minaj and Detroit songwriter Luis Resto, 57, who co-wrote and co-produced the Eminem songs “Phenomenal” and “Lose Yourself,” respectively.

“Eminem on ‘Majesty’ delivered what will be one of the greatest verses in rap history,” Minaj said on her Beast 1 radio show “Queen Radio.” “We want rappers to push their pen.”

This is a reunion for Eminem and Minaj. In 2010, the Detroit rapper was featured in “Roman’s Revenge,” a song from the Trinidadian-American rapper’s debut album titled “Pink Friday.”

On the other hand, this is the first time Labrinth collaborated with both Minaj and Eminem. When the British rapper released his debut studio album titled “Electronic Earth” in 2012, it peaked at number two behind Minaj’s second studio album titled “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.”

Minaj’s third studio album titled “The Pinkprint” was released in 2014. The album included a collaboration song titled “Buy a Heart” featuring her former boyfriend Robert Rihmeek Williams, 31, who is professionally known as Meek Mill, who was mentioned in the lyrics of her new song “Barbie Dreams” from the “Queen” alum.

Meanwhile, Minaj will be headlining the 2018 Made in America music festival from September 1-2, 2018 at the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Texan rapper Austin Richard Post, 23, who is professionally known as Post Malone, will be her co-headliner.
