Nicki Minaj Sets Her Sights on Beyoncé
There’s no stopping Nicki Minaj. The Young Money femcee can check Mariah Carey, Usher, and Ludacris off her growing list of collaborators, and now she’s eyeing the next prize.
The rising star’s plan of attack includes penning a song for another dominant force in pop music. “I think I could come up with some crazy stuff for Beyoncé,” she tells BET. “I have things that I write for girls, like R&B singers.”
After being co-signed by Jay-Z, Lil Wayne’s protégée wants to share some of her Barbie swagger with Mrs. Carter. “Beyoncé, she’s fearless, and I think that she could embody my crazy swag in a female R&B world,” she reveals.
But first, Minaj has her own album to tend to. She will debut her “explosive” first single “Massive Attack” later this month and will perform the Sean Garrett-produced club banger live for the first time on television during MTV Spring Break 2010 in Acapulco, Mexico, airing the week of March 22.
