Tracy Chapman blocked Nicki Minaj from using sample for 'Queen'

"Sorry" was the song with the Tracy Chapman sample that nearly made Nicki release the "Queen" album on August 17th and not this past Friday, August 10th. But I noticed I'm not on the list of men... "It's a pretty comprehensive list, and I'm just curious, if I were to make the list, how would you inform me?"

Colbert pointed out that he was excluded from the list of men, which implied she might be willing to be intimate with him.

However, Minaj wasn't quite finished, and came up with a second set of lyrics. The video then depicts Queen Minaj emerging from the sand in very sexy rags, and reanimating a cadre of her followers using the time-honored method of shotgunning smoke into a skull. Nicki continued "And then the ending says 'But when you see us together please don't f**king stare".

"It's all downhill from here", Colbert concluded.

"Wha? Uh. why? I, I, yeah", he stuttered, inelegantly.

"Why. yes. Yes I am married". The 34-year-old is promoting her new album Queen and the sharp tongued rapper came to play in her first late night TV appearance for the LP. Upon learning of his wife, Minaj said "Shout out to her".

For those keeping track at home, Colbert has been married to Evelyn McGee-Colbert for almost 25 years, and the couple share three children. She claims the real reason why he's upset is that not only did he not get an exclusive interview, but he didn't even get acknowledged or a drop for his show.

"It wasn't Drake, it was someone else", Minaj said, refusing to name names.

'One person, I'm not gonna say who, ' Minaj told him.
