They made her wait, but Queen Latifah has finally welcomed new owners to her New Jersey palace.

After nine months and price cuts of more than $300,000, the hip-hop pioneer and film producer sold the 9.5-acre estate for almost $2.1 million — a smidge less than she paid for it back in 2001.

It was the first house Queen Latifah bought in her native New Jersey. The 6-bedroom, 8-bath home boasts a two-story great room, two decks and a home theater.

The listing agent was Robin Jackson of Coldwell Banker.

The star is still trying to sell a 2,026-square-foot bungalow in Los Angeles that hit the market last fall. She’s asking $1.799 million, down by $140,000 from its initial listing price. Queen Latifah bought the home in 2010 with her personal trainer, Jeanette Jenkins.
