Video: Nicki Minaj Not Worried About Guest Features on ‘Pink Friday’

Nicki Minaj

With countless guest verses under her belt, Nicki Minaj has already worked with the best in the game, even before dropping her debut album. So while crafting the songs that will make up Pink Friday, the Young Money affiliate isn’t stressing the need to feature a slew of collaborators.

The Queens native’s forthcoming effort, set for a November release, may solely feature vocals from herself. “I haven’t confirmed any artists yet,” Nicki reveals to HoneyMag.com. “I’ve done so many features so far that right now it’s just about me expressing myself and if I happen to have features on the album then I do. But, you know, I’m not going really into my album thinking, ‘Ok, I’m gonna get this one and that one.’ If it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t. I just know, I believe that my work is so strong for this album that whether there’s a feature on it or not, it’s going to do amazing.”

    She doesn’t need any. Lil Kim, Foxy, Missy, Eve all had some on their debut but Nicki did MAJOR features before her album so now people are judging her to see if she can do a album without anyone. I think she can, her mixtape solo songs were some of the best. “Envy” “Kill The Dj” “Can Anybody Hear Me” “Still I Rise” all showed who Nicki Minaj was in a better sense. If she does do any collabos, let it be off the wall people who she hasn’t worked with yet. Would love to see a Nicki Minaj-Ciara, Nicki Minaj-Rihanna, NIcki Minaj-Queen Latifah or something new and fresh.

    @www.reggieiscrazy.com i agree w/ you 100%. Drake on his album a shit load and in my opinion he didnt need any of those, and honestly his songs were better without tose ft’s. Except ofcourse “up all night”. But if she does, i hope with someone she hasnt work with.

    So what I take out of that is:

    1. “Massive Attack” will not be on the album (Sean Garrett was a guest feature)
    2. The big names she talked about will likely be in behind-the-scenes roles (Swizz Beatz, will.i.am-though any production by him is bound to make the Top 10)
    3. I think there will be one Weezy guest verse and one Drizzy one (kinda similar to Thank Me Later)

    I don’t know if I’m going to buy her album to be quite honest. I didn’t like “Massive Attack”; although some people said that the song didn’t make the album then I’m not a fan of “Your love”. I hope whatever song she chooses to release next (I don’t know if she already has or not), but whatever single she decides to release next, shows the old Nicki rather than “I’m trying to be cute so I’m going to sound like a 12 year old”. I want the Nicki from All I do is Win remix.

    Well @youamuseme massive attack was a promo- never really set for the album, kinda like an experiement but it flopped. Your love was leaked as she said. I dont think nicki is gonna have many playful songs on her album, as she said before, its going to be a very emotional album.

    Well if she chooses to release a solo album that’s an admirable thing after 1/2 of TML had guest, and Teflon Don was compilation album lol! But I think she rly could sustain it by herself if she wanted. We’ll prolly see Drizzy somewhere in there though, maybe Wayne. I don’t see if being 100% featureless

    I totally agree with @www.reggieiscrazy.com

    Yeah since this is her Debut Albumn and fans are trying to really hear her I dont think she needs that many features. I know she said she has a singer in mind for one song and its most likely (Rihanna, Beyonce, or Monica) since she has been talking to Monica on Twitter on doin a collab and she’s cool with Rihanna and Beyonce. But I think she can save the ALL features for her 2nd Albumn.
