John Legend: ‘This Is Nicki Minaj’s Time’

You can add John Legend to the growing members of Team Minaj. The R&B crooner is vocalizing his support for hip-hop’s reigning femcee.

When asked whether he preferred Nicki Minaj or Lil’ Kim, the diplomatic singer told The Huffington Post, “Well right now Nicki Minaj, but you know there’s a time and place for everybody. I feel like this is Nicki’s time right now, but Kim had a nice run.”

Legend also revealed his wish list of collaborators. “I have a few people that I’d love to write for or write with, like Amy Winehouse would be fun, Feist would be fun, Beyoncé would be cool too, just to name a few,” he said.

His ’60s and ’70s covers album with The Roots, Wake Up!, is due Sept. 21.
