Nicki Minaj is pushing the envelope once again, this time with the cover art for her long-awaited album, Queen.

The provocative image shows the rapper wearing beaded underwear, matching pasties and headgear as she lounges on a tree limb.

Minaj posted the regal, yet racy image on Instagram along with the caption “Queen 8|10|18 by the legendary Mert And Marcus. My greatest work to date. Thank you for your patience & love.”

The album’s debut single Chun-Li recently made it into the top 10 of the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, according to Billboard.

Queen was originally slated to be released next week, but was delayed until Aug. 10.

Queen, the highly anticipated followup to 2014’s The Pinkprint, is Minaj’s fourth studio album.

The rapper is no stranger to scintillating photos.

Back in 2014, she made jaws drop with the cover art for Anaconda.

Posing in a pink sports bra, a pink G-string, and pink and blue sneakers — her Anaconda image left little to the imagination.
