The queen has returned to her throne. After a year of radio silence (save for some features), Nicki Minaj has released two new solo songs at once, “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li.” And for the three-peat, she’s also hopped on Young Thug’s new song, “Anybody.” These are her first new lead songs since early 2017, but, more importantly, they’re also her first new singles from an album since 2014. She told Zane Lowe in an interview ahead of the songs, “This is the best album I’ve ever, ever, ever created in my life.”
Nicki Minaj tells Zane Lowe in the interview for her new songs that she and Cardi B got off on the wrong foot. It all stems from a song they did with Migos, “MotorSport,” which was originally a collaboration with just Quavo and Nicki. Later, after the rest of the Migos were added, she says Quavo texted her asking if Cardi could also have a verse on it, which Minaj says she approved (and still has the receipts to prove it). However, that’s not the story she says Cardi or Migos told after the fact. “The only thing with Cardi that really, really, really hurt my feelings was the first interview she did after ‘MotorSport’ came out. With ‘MotorSport,’ I kinda felt ambushed,” she says. “The first thing that came out of her mouth about a Nicki Minaj feature was ‘she changed the verse’ … When it was time to clear the air about that, no one did that. All of them allowed me to look like I lied.”
She also clarifies the reason she and Cardi did not film together for the song’s music video was because of a scheduling conflict due to them both using the same hairstylist.
Though Cardi recently cleared the air about their tension and both agree there is no existing feud, Minaj notes, tearing up, that the damage has been done: “Up until this recent interview that she did, I had never seen her show me genuine love.
