Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande

Nicki Minaj dropped new music from her eagerly-awaited album, Queen, her first album since 2014. The track titled “Bed” features pop singer Ariana Grande on the chorus (“Got a bed wit yo name on it/ Got a kiss wit yo name on it”).

In a recent interview with ELLE magazine, Nicki shared how happy she is to be single. She says being in a relationship stunted her creativity, and she believes that being single for the first time since she was 15 years old has allowed her to grow spiritually.

“Spiritually, I’ve experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years,” she said, adding that she feels liberated.

“It’s the first time in my life I’ve ever been single.”

Nicki previously dated emotionally unavailable rappers including Nas, Meek Mill and Safaree Samuels, but she is extremely proud of the fact that she’s forged her own success without the help of a man.

“As soon as I realized that I could actually live and breathe, and eat and sleep, and walk and talk, without having a boyfriend, something clicked in me,” the Grammy nominee recalled. “Becoming single was one of the things that made me feel strong and powerful.

“The fact that I am a young woman who doesn’t need a man for money,” she continued. “I don’t need a man for a job. I’ve never had to f**k for beats. I’ve never had to f**k for a record deal. I don’t have those pressures.”

Queen is available for pre-order here.

    Why wasn’t Rich Sex the next single?!?!
    That chit knocks!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I never was a big Nicki fan although I did like her first CD/Album. But I’m starting to feel bad for her. I think her time is up too unfortunately. If this album doesn’t fly, she’s toast. I’m sure she will keep up a strong social media front, but this will be proof that she has peaked and the kids have moved on. Oh and I forgot to add, I don’t like the song.

  • Gloria

    I believe so too. Her songs are forgettable and lacks substance, at least to me anyway. Her wacky wigs, crazy facial expressions, “all these bitches are my sons” act is dried up like a raisin in a sun.

  • BadAss Will

    First time being single in her life? ?? I was gon say something slick but I digress.. I love Nicki

    Cute.

  • Thingamajig

    I figured a lot of those comments were hers especially after reading when someone said why not get a job and then the person responded that “she” has her own business. That’s when I knew the baby mama was up in there responding to comments and then I bounced. lol.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    LOL!!! Say it wit yo chest!!! LOL!!!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think it knocks. I liked the chorus and that Nicki is gearing it toward the pop audience.

  • Tiff J

    If this album doesn’t hit, then she’ll say she’s retiring from rap to pursue other interests. Like acting. Or she’ll say she wants to go start a family, that she’s done all there was to do in rap, and female rap is dead without her.

  • iWasteTime

    Why wasn’t Rich Sex the next single?!?!
    That chit knocks!

    She for all intents and purposes admitted it was her. And she used the word “sticked” in one comment. Its the same grammatical mess just like those “tess messages” lol

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    It’s just ok. Personally I don’t think its a hit (album filler at best) but with the crap thats out now I guess you could consider it a hit (and that ain’t saying much)

  • RaginB

    Is it better than that awful “rich sex” song she dropped?

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    I don’t know where she thought she was going with that bull smdh

  • Owww76

    Word say that again! Unfortunately female rap has a very short shelf life and she isn’t evolving as an artist same ole same ole and onto the next. I hate that the female rap pool is so shallow, Need some more lyrically stronger artists to step to the plate

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    It all went downhill after MC Lyte hung up her mic.

  • ebonics

    Truth!

  • teather

    Creativity today in music is lost. Those of us who grew up in the 70s and came of age along with hip hop know that it’s an art form. a lifestyle and way of thinking and being that transforms daily life. It’s our unique expression of the concerns triumphs challenges and injustices of our times. It’s US telling OUR truth. Today, it’s just money making booty shaking sh*t. I have respect for a few very conscious young men who are delivering really good production and their flow is tight and the subject matter has you hearing something different every time the song comes on. I won’t hate on our young ppl and their expression. You need our support. It’s just that the art in the music has been lost to popular trends. Today this is hip hop pop and nothing more.

  • MsVAllDay

    LOL not tap the stapler……….ova here in tears!

    It’s all that drag queen make up. She probably still looks young under all that mess.

    Girl!!! You cleaned that up quick!! Im weak!

  • SweetTEE

    Thats what it is!! I was trying to figure out who this duo reminded me of.

  • SumthinSweeter

    true

  • GayDownLowFatBoyChaser

    Her word play is so weak

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    I heard a song of hers and not by choice in someone else’s car. No thank you still..

  • Quitedeliteful

    Three roses was very generous. I’d rather listen to Cardi B’s ‘Be Careful”. Ima have to knock a rose off of this….

  • Wreckognize Game

    She keeps mentioning not F’ng for beats. But she will give herself a reputation of dating other rappers and sexing ladies to sell an album. Her SNL performance with Playboi Carti was wack with the grinding on his young sac.

    Every interview now is a subliminal about not dating for the gram and being fake engaged, having a baby or f’ng for material things. Now she has a song called bed. Bih you are human too. Stop with the lip service.

  • IssaOpinion

    How do you know this to be true ?Are you assuming.

  • Solstice

  • Connie

    Damn!!

  • Crazy tee

    I’m not a die hard Nikki fan but the song was good…If Ariana would have threw in some harder sound bites while Nikki was rapping would have really took this song to a whole other level….it’s like Ariana stopped singing so that we could hear Nikki’s rap..she should have keep singing in and out of the rap…

  • HIS4EVA

    That shit was wack! Uggh.

  • HIS4EVA

    Two

  • HIS4EVA

    What!

  • Louisville Is4TheBirds

    In other words, we needed her to continue to distract us from Nicki’s washed bars

    She needs a new fuc…..I mean err new ghostwriter.

    I made it 0:18 sec. Lame song

  • Ms. Jackson

    I made it to 41 sec’s lol.

  • Kimberly King

    I like Nicki a lot. Love the way she pushes through regardless of how many people try to tear her down. But she’s too damn old to be dressing like a sex’d up ass power ranger. I can’t handle it anymore. My heart

    Idk why but I thought of Milton when I read your comment lol! He could be your mumblin hypeman and I’m willing to bet y’all would go triple platinum in this day in age! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/eb7d5fce474511bcf0ea7f37aa6f318ed7253dd4e98e83737638902016798d93.jpg

  • Brown & Proud

    Allow me to correct myself, she screwed young money and MANY more to get where she is now. Its evident because she got so much fame with so little talent. She also sold her soul. Just a straight up dummy cause shes already played our, her career is near its end. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ad381643532e97039c446ece8b472809326ce2e74e410d673430b50271001e36.jpg

  • CocoBabe88

    Every radio song sounds the same.

  • Rhyme and Reason

    I hope Nicki continues to push through! Most of today’s music sucks! It’s a personality contest. With women artists, they truly limit us!

    She shouldn’t feel nervous about Cardi because she will be around, and seem to be making the right moves!

    People love to jump on band wagons or wait for artists to fail, but they’re brands, Nicki will survive and thrive!

    I love how Fergie hosts “The Four” as if she wasn’t once a major music superstar with a group or solo! But, she’s a mom, owns a winery, and has millions in the bank, and still pretty, more than enuf!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Hit it right on the nose… I didn’t even think about that. . Smh

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    The whole album fire… I tell you no damn lies…

  • Junkanoo

    It’s industry it’s self that promotes watered down moderately talented people to excess. There are gifted artists out there but few get much exposure.

  • Quitedeliteful

    That Be Careful song is the only one I can listen to…
