Well here's some music news that may get the Barbz and the Beyhive adrenaline rushing!
A Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé collab is in the works!
Last week, Nicki caused an Internet firestorm when she released a butt shot promoting her new single "Anaconda," while revealing that the single would be released on July 28. Days before the record was supposed to premiere, she notified her fans that the single had been pushed back:
My darlingz, I've pushed the release of Anaconda to next week, Monday 8/4. I promise you will understand why before the week is out. Loveeeeeeee uuuuuu
At first, it was speculated that she pushed the single back to let her feature on Jessie J and Ariana Grande's "Bang Bang" grow momentum, but her reasoning may be even more exciting than that.
Beyoncé is rumored to have lent a verse to her "Anaconda" track, and the two divas are said to have also collaborated on a remix of Beyoncé's girl-power anthem "Flawless."
According to Miss Info:
Our colleagues at HipHopWired hinted at the reason, so it looks like the cat is scratching it’s way out the bag…here’s what folks are buzzing about: Beyoncé and Nick Minaj have teamed up for the remix of Bey’s song “Flawless”…and to make the power collabo even more special…it’s possible that Beyoncé is spitting (not just singing) her verse.
It’s not the first time we’ve heard Bey rapping (she did it on her ode to H-Town too), and being married to one of the most famous MCs in the world has to rub off, but what if we get an actual Queen Bey x Nicki bar-for-bar duet? Curtains! Let’s hope the rumors are true.
This is the sexually liberating era of Beyoncé so it won't be a surprise if she's talking that dirty if she does indeed hop on "Anaconda."
If everything pans out, which we hope it does, this will be HUGE for both artists, especially Nicki who appeared to have been written off by mainstream media thanks to the recent success of Iggy Azalea. But between this and the Jessie J track, "Bang Bang," it's clear Nicki isn't going down without a fight!
She still has the game on lock.
In other news, "Bang Bang" shot to the top of the iTunes charts in over 15 countries.
