It’s officially #NickiDay. Nicki Minaj released two new singles today, “Chun-Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” and hopped on an interview with Zane Lowe on Beats 1 to promote them. However, as with all things Nicki, the interview was much more than a simple appearance to promote a couple new tracks. The interview was far-reaching and candid, and Nicki revealed a laundry list of new things about her album, as well as her relationship with Drake, Cardi B, and much more.
Lil Wayne and Birdman both called in at different times to give Nicki love, and Nicki was obviously excited about releasing new solo music for the first time in years. She also revealed she is making a documentary, and indicated that some of the things she wouldn't talk about in this interview will be addressed in more depth in the doc. She even intimated that she recorded on tape the first time she heard the beat for one of her new songs, "Chun-Li," and promised "fans are gonna go crazy for it."
Here are the six of the most interesting things we learned from today’s Beats 1 interview.
