Nicki Minaj Opens Up About Upcoming Drake Collab
A new Nicki Minaj and Drake collab is on the way. Drake first announced that Nicki will be on his For All The Dogs album during an It’s All A Blur tour stop last month. “Me and Nicki Minaj did our first song in like, a really long time. I got a lot of love for her,” he told the crowd during his performance.
In a recent TikTok livestream, Nicki reminisced on the old times working with Drake. She said that the new collaboration gave her that same feeling.
“The song I did with Drake recently definitely put me in the feels, like when we used to be doing Nicki Minaj TV on the Lil Wayne tour and stuff,” she recalled. “Fun times, right?”
Nicki and Drake both signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment in 2009. The two have collaborated on several songs throughout the years. They’ve worked on “Moment 4 Life,” “Only,” “BedRock,” “Seeing Green,” “Make Me Proud,” and more. Nicki, Drake, and Lil Wayne last collaborated on the Pink Friday creator’s “Seeing Green” re-release from her 2009 mixtape, Beam Me Up Scotty.
Nicki also has her own music on the way coming sooner than you think. The lead single for her Pink Friday 2 album will be released tomorrow (Sept. 1). The song is titled “Last Time I Saw You,” and from the snippet Nicki posted on social media, it has a slower melody than her previous releases.
Pink Friday 2, the follow-up to her debut album Pink Friday, will be released in November. Originally, the album was supposed to drop in October. She told fans in June that they will be waiting a little bit longer for her project.
“Dear Barbz,” Nicki began in the caption of the Instagram post addressing her fanbase. “I’ve been trying to find the right time to tell you this for a few days. Due to some really exciting news that I’ll share with you guys @ a later time, I’ve shifted the album date just a tad bit. Trust me, it’ll be WELL WORTH THE WAIT…but since I AM shifting the date just a tad, I’d like to give you guys a tiny SIP of some more album tea so that I don’t have to get cussed out [sad emoji] so…here it goes: [pink bow emoji] MY NEW ALBUM WILL BE RELEASED ON 11.17.23.”
