Nicki Minaj is having the best week ever. After releasing the pop anthem of the summer “Bang Bang” with Jesse J and Ariane Grande, the Barb dropped the “Flawless” remix with Beyonce and song “Anaconda.”
Takes a deep breath.
To top off her already impressive weekend, Nicki released a 15-second teaser clip of the “Anaconda” video, where she debuts her new and improved twerking skills. If you thought the controversy surrounding the “Anaconda” artwork was intense, wait ’til critics get a glimpse of her rump shaking against the Sir Mix-A-Lot sampled beat.
In related news, Nicki called in to “Ebro In The Morning” to discuss recording the”Flawless” remix with Beyonce and said Jay personally called her last month and informed her that Beyonce wanted to collaborate with her on the project.
“After I got proper medical help and started breathing again, I was like ‘What?!’” Nicki joked. “She sent me a version that she wanted and she told me ‘I want you to be you, I don’t want you to hold back,’” she added before describing Bey’s demeanor in the studio. “I recorded the verse in new York and she stopped by the studio. She was such a sweetheart. She was hyping me up, like ‘Do your thing.’”
Nicki also revealed that she is open to working with Remy M, who was recently released from prison. “Before Remy even came home I said I would love to [work together]. I was a fan of hers before she went to jail. I always felt like she was at the top of her game.”
