Queen Nicki Minaj is back. Minaj’s Queen’s Radio looks set to return to broadcast in a new partnership with Amazon. The radio show will be streamed live from Amazon’s new live audio app, launched today in Apple’s app store.
According to Bloomberg, the app appears to allow users to become DJs, play songs and chat with listeners while accessing “tens of millions” of songs from Universal Music Group, Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Music Group and independent labels.
AMP, which is still in beta, will initially only be invited and will require an access code that Amazon will distribute through a waiting list, on social media and in a newsletter.
In addition to Nicki, other high-profile Amp show creators include Pusha T, Tinashe, Lil Yachty, Big Boi, Travis Barker and Lindsey Stirling. Nicki launched Queen Radio on Apple Music in August 2018. Unfiltered conversations in 17 episodes and Ariana Grande, 50 Cent, Chance the Rapper and more.
