Nicki Minaj has revealed that there was almost a Drake collaboration on ‘Queen’.
The pair – who are both signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment – were working on a track but they missed the album completion deadline because Drake was preparing for his tour.
Speaking on ‘The Whoollywood Shuffle’ on Eminem’s SiriusXM channel, Shade 45, she said: “Drake and I were working on something, but I didn’t want to change the date of the album. So about two days before I had to turn it in, he and I had been going back and forth. And then even up until – I would say, within 12 hours of having to turn in my album, we were going back and forth.
“He had come to my studio, we found something that we really, really loved. But he was also going through that process of getting stuff right for his tour, and I had to understand that. As an artist, I always try to put myself in the artist’s shoes, and not try to be selfish.”
Although it doesn’t feature a collaboration with Drake it does feature collaborations with Lil Wayne, Eminem and Ariana Grande.
