Nicki Minaj has returned to the fold in a big way following her appearance on Meghan Trainor’s smash Pop single, Nice To Meet Ya.
Soon after appearing on a number of Billboard charting singles, including Hot Girl Summer and Da Baby’s iPhone, Onika took some time off the scene.
While the blogs went into overdrive with rumours of her pregnancy to husband-slash-gangbanger, Kenneth, Nicki Minaj probably had her feet kicked up in seclusion with her partner without a care in the world about the toxic realm of social media.
Following a lengthy hiatus from the music scene, Nicki Minaj resurfaced with a couple of thirst-trapping Instagram posts, looking lean, mean and ready to reclaim her throne.
Dissecting the Nicki Minaj verse on Nice To Meet Ya
In a weird way, a fiery encounter with her ex-boyfriend, Meek Mill, preempted the verse that marked her return, on Nice To Meet Ya.
Some of the quotables in this verse include:
One minute I’m nice, the next a monster (prrrt)Nicki Minaj on Nice To Meet Ya
My guesthouse alone cost like three tickets
And that Rolls truck and that paint job real wicked
Used to dumb, dumb myself down for these chickens
Now when dem, dem talk, I smile it be crickets
I turn every head when I walk in the room
I’m pretty in real life, hit my pics with the zoom
A ten when they rate it like Tune
Elevator to the penthouse, we ain’t stoppin’ anytime soon
A quick read through these punchline-filled bars tells you everything you need to know about what is to come from the queen of rap.
Minaj has yet to address speculation around a 2020 album rollout. If indeed she is ready to treat us with new music, this year could prove to be one for the books in music because elsewhere at Atlantic Records, murmurs are rife that Bardi (Cardi B) has not missed a minute of recording time.
