Rap-Up TV: Songwriter Andrea Martin Talks Mary J. Blige/Nicki Minaj Record

The Internet was buzzing last month when an unfinished version of a new Mary J. Blige/Nicki Minaj collaboration called “Feel Inside” leaked. When Rap-Up TV spoke with Andrea Martin at the ASCAP Awards, the songwriter confirmed that she penned the song and that it will likely be the new single from Mary’s album My Life II: The Journey Continues, due September 20.

Martin, who wrote “It Kills Me” for Melanie Fiona and “Better in Time” for Leona Lewis, has been working on other records for the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul and offered a hint of what’s to come. “She has some special guests on the album that I can’t mention right now ’cause it’s a surprise, but you guys are gonna love it,” she said.

In addition to MJB, Martin has been in the studio with Anthony Hamilton, Jennifer Hudson, and Lewis.

    @KO, they aren’t lying. i think they are meaning that it’s not the mastered version. sometimes the producers add more shit to a record to enhance the sound or the singer lays additional vocals.

  3. GET OVER IT .. STANS

    Business is Business !!! If Lil Kim is a smart woman (which I doubt) she will know .. that HOT record with Mary and Nicki have NOTHING to do with her.. And .. IF Kim start talking greasy about Mary .. The whole ENTIRE Rap industry will ANNIHILATE HER !! She got too many POWERFUL people who hold her down .. Go Mary .. Go Nicki !!!!

    @GET OVER IT .. STANS, Kim is not worried. I’m sure over these past months she REALLY learned you can’t mix business and friends together and have to know the difference.

    I’m just mad Nicki couldn’t drop a HOTT verse and STAY ON TOPIC and continuously have to diss and shade other female rappers. The song would have been bangin if Mary and her teamed picked atleast E-V-E to get on the track, someone we can take more serious and knows how to actually rap on topic. Just sayin…

    @Ln, every song that Nicki gets on is a flop.The Mariah Carey song and the Keyshia Cole song.Mary should know better than to have that wack chick on her records.This is not going to make the Nicki fans buy her album.

    People don’t want to hear the Happy Mary. Her music was best when her life was struggling. Mary must give the fans Her. Mary know her audience. I am bit over rappers on everyone songs… I need Wayne to stop that.

  6. K-girl

    I don’t get why ppl trippen…how is it disrespect for Mary to do a song with Nicki? Kim and Mary have been friends for years, but friendship aside this is also their job( make music and sell it) right now Nicki is what is selling so Mary and Nicki collab would be hot…Plus when have you heard Mary get involved with this whole beef anyways. She is neutral as much as ppl bring her name up in the nicki kim fight…she never says anything. So ppl stop being dumb… By the way for ppl who keep saying bring the sad Mary back are GO MARY!!!!

Nicki’s breaking records that Kim never did… you stupid kim fans don’t do you’re homework every single Nicki released from pink friday went certified platinum.. lmao… keep hating if Kim was smart she would apologize to Nicki and make some money by doing a song with her… and F.Y.I kim dissed Nicki first.. plenty of times.. DO YOUR HOMEWORK

    [Reply]

    Lia Reply:

    @nua, You are so dumb.Why would Kim apologize when Nicki made more disses to Kim.Every word that comes out of her mouth is a diss.Also there already did a song together dumb@ss but Nicki told Birdman to take Kim off the track cause everybody was saying how KIm out shined her on the the track.FYI Nicki started all of this.She been dissing Kim since 2005 and on her mixtapes from 2007 where she even called her name out 3 times.Y’all Nicki fans are so dumb and retarded but most off y’all are young so it’s understandable.

    this is the problem with that colab with MJB and Nicki… it was a flop when it leaked on the internet and it will be a flop as a single… for obvious reasons. 1. the song was just tired.. its the same ole MJ nuthin new to it. 2. Nicki minaj verse was wack as fuck like somebody above stated the chic can not stick on topic. 3. Any songs that nicki has colab on with R&B artist have been a extreme flop.. ex. Keisha Cole, Mariha Carey and now MJB. this is how u can tell nicki is just a pop star. 4. MJB lied. MJB camp lied to billboard.com.. cause they claimed that track was not MJB song and it wasnt official. 5. sorry MJB you will not win a young fanbase just because u have NM on your track. NM caters to teenyboopers.. MJB u are the Queen of Hip Hop Soul you dont need the latest fad to solidify you!prime example.. patti label is a legend in R&B did she need u mary or a mc lyte or queen latifah to stay relevant when you all first came out… the answer is hell no! sorry just sayin

  18. WOW

    Its ridiculous..Kim is such a sweet and LOYAL person, and she just keeps getting stabbed in the back by all of her Industry “Friends”. I must say though, Kim needs to stop befriending industry people and understand its Just BUSINESS, because people are all about MONEY and not making friends or being loyal. Sorry but its the world that we live in now a days, nobody keeps it REAL anymore. So with that being said, Kim do your thing..We see you all overseas making that Money, hurry and make a bomb album, dont respond to any of the negativity…Save it for a bomb Album!!!! Love you Kim.

  19. Loveher

    First, why are people making this an issue??!!! Kim is not even in the Country right now, Kim is in AFRICA, then going to AUSTRALIA!! So Kim shouldnt even care of these two LAMES make a song together, I hope Kim doesnt even respond to that CRAPPY Song!!! Mary needs to sing about things for HER AGE group, and Nicki is on her 14th minute of fame, so does it even matter at this point!!! Kim is 16 years strong..I DOUBT Nicki will ever see 10 years to be honest. So Nicki, keep doing all of Kim’s Leftovers!!!!

    Its not about Mary doing a song with Nicki, business is business. Its about Nicki dossing lilkim once again on a song that had nothing to do with what she was talking about. That right there should let the fans know what time it is. As irrelevant as Nicki tries to make Kim, she is doing a bad job at it. Since the start of nicki’s career she has been dossing Kim. If Kim had a problem with Nicki why did she record the song grinding making money with Nicki? Nicki if Kim is so irrelevant to you just stop dissing her..stick to the song concept…please.

    Just because Kim hates Nicki doesn’t mean Mary has to hate her too just because she’s friends with Kim. Mary doesn’t want to work with washed up, bitter, deformed in the face rappers. All 5 members in team lil kim are PRESSED!

    ITS BARBIE BITCHHHHH

    I hate when people say its just business. Sometimes friendship should take a priority.

    Kim has been there for Mary as for Mary for Kim. When Mary was getting her __ chris browned who did she run 2. Kim. When Kim was going through her stuff whom did she run 2 Marry.

    Mary said in a interview that people started saying she changed. Well maybe she did change. Everyone cant be wrong Mary

    Im also tired of people giving their opinions on this site. If your opinion mattered that much you would have your own blog and consult 2 artist.

    So anyway back to the topic… Andrea Martin is hella talented. People slept on her solo material. I love her collaborations with Melanie Fiona and I can’t wait to hear Mary’s new album
