If we’re taking cues from anyone for playlist inspiration, it’s Queen Latifah!

"I listen to stuff people probably wouldn’t think," she admits.

The singer and music manager rattled off some of her current favorites when she visited our show -- and we may or may not be updating our music library as we speak.

Here's what (and who!) Queen is listening to:

- "Wild Thoughts" by DJ Khaled, ft. Rihanna
- "Death of a Bachelor" by Panic! At the Disco
- "Sorry Not Sorry" by Demi Lovato (She tells Rach she NEEDS to give it a listen.)
- Lil Uzi Vert
- Cardi B

"It’s such a catchy record," Queen says of Cardi B's smash hit, "Bodak Yellow," which she performed at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 11. "I'm so happy for her."

(Not to mention she won "Best New Artist!" Go Cardi!)

"There are a lot of dirty records that are real catchy right now," she adds with a laugh.

"I like that," Rach responds. "When I hear something [that] makes me get red. [It] wakes me up!"

It never hurts to push the envelope a bit!
