Playtime is over. Nicki Minaj unleashes her ruthless remix to Rae Sremmurd’s anthem “No Flex Zone.” Over the Mike WiLL Made-It production, the reigning rap queen boasts about her supreme status.

“Running this game for five years, guess that’s why my feet hurt / Wonder when they bite me, do these bitches teeth hurt / Yes, I am an icon, that’s me on your T-shirt,” she raps.

She also flaunts her assets (“Ass still fat, it’s on Rick Ross”), bigs up her baller lifestyle (“I live next door to Brad Pitt’s home”), and shuts down potential suitors (“If you ugly, it’s a no sex zone”).

New Music: Estelle – ‘Conqueror’

Conqueror

Estelle came to win. Following the release of last year’s Love & Happiness EP series, the British songstress leads the march to victory on her triumphant anthem “Conqueror.”

“I’d rather stand tall than live on my knees / ‘Cause I am conqueror and I won’t accept defeat,” sings a resilient Estelle.

On November 4, she will release her fourth album True Romance, which follows her journey back to love.

“I had to figure out who I was again. I had ask to myself questions like, ‘What kinds of things do I like?’” Estelle told USA Today. “This album is about the time in between breaking up with someone and becoming happy again. That time that you’re just existing. No one goes straight to happiness after a breakup.”

The official music video will premiere July 21 on VH1 Soul. In the meantime, Estelle has called on ballet dancer Misty Copeland to bring “Conqueror” to life through dance.
