Nicki Minaj Hops On New Version Of BTS’ “Idol”
On the 4-minute single, Nicki spits English rhymes over the electric dance beat. “If you getting money, rubber bands in the air / Never gave an F, they can cancel my care / ‘Cause if he look good, throw my pants in the air,” she raps.
“Idol” is the lead single from BTS’ highly-anticipated album, Love Yourself: Answer, which debuted on Friday (Aug. 24). According to Seoul Economic Daily, BTS reached out to Minaj after completing the upcoming project.
