Nicki Minaj Talks Recording 'Feeling Myself' With Beyonce
Beyonce doesn't record with just anybody, so when Nicki Minaj lent her 16s to Beyonce's "Flawless" remix, Queen Bey respectfully returned the favor.
Nicki Minaj spoke with TIME about recording "Feeling Myself" on her latest album The Pinkprint and said she wanted to create a song just for the ladies.
"When I did ‘Flawless,’ she said that she would do something for The Pinkprint,” Minaj says. “I was ecstatic. She had ‘Feeling Myself’ — she wanted to know how I felt about it. I said, ‘I love it.’ I knew girls were going to be posting pictures on Instagram saying ‘#feelingmyself.’ I told Beyoncé that. I was like, ‘You already know what’s going to happen.'”
Nicki M predicted women would take to social media and caption their photos with the Feeling Myself hashtag.
"Flawless’ impacted so hard. But people seemed to love ‘Feeling Myself,’ too. I was excited that we got another one. With ‘Flawless,’ it makes girls feel good about themselves. You could say, ‘I’m feeling myself’ or ‘I’m flawless.’ It’s something every girl wants to say.”
Despite the "Flawless" remix going number one on urban radio with no video, the Head Barbz in Charge says no video treatment has been planned for "Feeling Myself"
I think I speak for everyone when I say, a video for "Feeling Myself" would be greatly appreciated.
