In the interview, Nicki opens up about returning to her roots, her friendship with Drake, and her plans to start a family after her fifth album.
“I have to put out all six of my albums, contractually,” she said. “After the fifth, I’ll probably have my baby. I wonder if I’m going to be one of those women who balances my child with a career. I always said, ‘When I have my baby, it’s going to be all about my baby.’ I don’t want the child feeling like they don’t have all of my attention, so I always said, ‘I’m going to take a little break.’ But we’ll see.”
