Nicki Minaj’s latest album The Pinkprint drops in four days, but fans already have a taste of the rapper’s new songs, including her latest collaborations with Ariana Grande and Beyonce.
Minaj teamed up with Grande on the Jessie J song "Bang Bang," but risque new track "Get On Your Knees" is the duo’s first duet. The sexy club track is all about female domination, and the chorus repeatedly implores their men to skip the cute stuff and "get on your knees."
"I don’t need a dozen roses / you ain’t gotta wine and dine me, no / I don’t need a pretty boy / getting all emotional," Grande croons over the chorus. "You gotta beg for it, beg for it."
Minaj gets down and dirty in her rap verses, referencing yet another diva when she rhymes, "Got me seein' them fireworks / I’m on my Kate Perry (sic)."
Minaj and Grande team up for the bridge, doubling down on the domination: "If you want it all, it’s non-negotiable / so do it as I say / If you wanna get the job, you better know who’s the boss."
Minaj also joined forces with Queen B herself for another female-empowerment track on The Pinkprint. Her song with Beyonce, titled "Feeling Myself," leaked earlier this week and showcases the divas bragging about their fame and numerous accomplishments.
"Changed the game with that digital drop / know where you was when that digital popped / I stopped the world," boasts Beyonce, referencing her surprise self-titled album, which recently garnered her three GRAMMY nominations. "Male or female, it make no difference / I stopped the world."
Nicki stole the show on last week's Saturday Night Live when she performed impressions of Beyonce and Kim Kardashian. Check out her starring spot in the video below.
