Nicki Minaj just released an emotional song titled ‘Last Time I Saw You,’ a sneak peek from her upcoming album ‘Pink Friday 2.’
Back in June, the Queens rap sensation spilled the tea on her fifth studio album, ‘Pink Friday 2,’ which is the sequel to her Grammy-nominated debut ‘Pink Friday.’ She made it official that this winter will be lit with the album’s release.
This track takes a chill turn compared to Minaj’s usual high-energy vibes. With an indie-inspired beat, she croons: “Beggin me to stay and then you walk away/ There’s something that you wanted to say/ I was in a rush and you say you were crushed/ But I said I’d be back, it’s OK.”
On Twitter, Minaj mentioned that the song embodies a sense of hope amidst loss. “Even tho reliving the memories did feel ‘sad,’ after I wrote, recorded, [and] lived [with] it, it actually made me pay more attention to the people I still DO have, and how important it is to cherish them and have fun NOW in the moment,” she wrote. “Telling them how much you adore them, etc. [It] made me so happy.”
‘Pink Friday 2,’ the much-awaited album, is scheduled for a November 17 release this year through Heavy On It/10K Projects/Capitol Records – the label Minaj herself launched in April. As for ‘Pink Friday 2,’ Minaj assured her fans of some mind-blowing auditory experiences.
During the ‘It’s All A Blur’ tour in Detroit, Drake spilled the beans that he and Minaj, who used to be labelmates and close pals, are collaborating on a track after a significant hiatus from working together.
Adding to her recent ventures, Minaj also made her debut as a playable character in ‘Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’ and ‘Warzone 2’. In the game, players can enjoy her humourous taunts, cleverly referencing some of her greatest hits.
