If youre a mega-fan of Nicki Minaj, no doubt youll be struggling not to fall asleep at your desk today.

Why? Overnight the 35-year-old launched Queen Radio – her brand new radio station on which she will also be dropping her brand new album today.

Aptly named Queen, the album has been much anticipated with plenty of teasers keeping fans eager for its release.

So when is Queen going to drop?

Nickis fourth studio album will drop today at 4pm (8am PST).

Nicki revealed the artwork for her new album in June, featuring themes of burlesque and Cleopatra for all kinds of regal hotness.

The rest of Nickis outfit consisted off a golden belt and a beaded loincloth, a stunning beaded headpiece and an extravagant matching necklace.

Throw in a flaming orange backdrop and Queen written in gold, and youve got her most eyecatching artwork since she squatted in a thong for Ananconda.

Sharing the cover on Instagram, the Chun-Li rapper wrote: #Queen 8|10|18 ???~ ? by the legendary #MertAndMarcus @mertalas ~ My greatest work to date.

Thank you for your patience & love. Pre-Order next week w|my 2nd single.
