She shared details of the conversation she had with Drizzy. “I spoke to Drake and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt,” she continued. “I’m like, ‘Baby, you are a superstar and I need you to realize that.’ He did nothing wrong, of course, and rumors are rumors and that’s what it is, but I told him it’s time to remember who you are.”

She advised him to walk away next time. “Sometimes you might need to go to bed, have an early nap. Go to the hotel. There’s nothing wrong with that. I do it all the God damn time.”

In addition to addressing the beef, Nicki revealed that she has collaborated with 2 Chainz on a new song, likely to appear on his Def Jam debut Based on a T.R.U.
