In the midst of Nicki Minaj‘s rift with Cardi B, the former managed to give her fans an update on forthcoming music. During her Queen Radio show, Minaj dished on her collaborative song with Kanye West that’ll center on body-shaming.
As noted by HotNewHipHop, the “Dip” rapper said the song tackles the body-shaming topic in “a very different, interesting, Kanye West way,” so fans will have to wait and hear what’s in store when the melody reportedly drops on Nov. 23. The untitled track might be featured on West’s upcoming Yandhi album.
The pair has been featured on each other’s songs dating back to Minaj’s 2010 track “Blazin” and West’s “Monster” of that same year. In October 2017, Minaj said she had a lengthy talk with West to make him keep “Monster” on his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.
“It was like an hour long call where I tried to convince him to let the song stay on his album,” she wrote. “He felt this verse would end up being the talk of the album. I said: YOU’RE KANYE WEST!!!!”

7 year anniversary of #Monster Kanye called me to tell me Jay put a verse on this song & that he was still deciding if he would put it on his album. Haha. It was like an hour long call where I tried to convince him to let the song stay on his album. He felt this verse would end up being the talk of the album. I said: YOU’RE KANYE WEST!!!! 💞 I became the first female rapper to perform @ Yankee Stadium on the JAY/Eminem stadium tour. When I saw him, Jay said: “when u got so nice”? I said: “I been nice”! Ha! Kanye, thank you for being the genius you are. You always put others first. I fought u every step of the way but it worked out. (He wanted me to add more of that growling monster voice and I felt it was over kill.) He wouldn’t give in. In the end, maybe he was right. Ha! – this song featured Barbie and Roman. Chyna was my stunt double in the video. (Due to her ASSets). Amber had spoken highly of me to Ye n pushed for him to meet with me. The rest is history. Ye, Jay, Em…All 3 of them helped me in some way. Love
In addition to her upcoming collabo with West, Minaj also shared that she has a song on the Creed II soundtrack. “There’s someone on that song that I have never worked with,” she said, “and someone on the song that I have worked with.”
