Nicki Minaj Talks ‘Emotional’ Performance with Beyoncé

Fresh off sharing the stage with Beyoncé in Paris, Nicki Minaj called into French radio station Skyrock FM. The “Anaconda” rapper was overwhelmed by all the love she received from the crowd during the “On the Run Tour.”

“It was just very emotional for me to be there because I know it was a big show,” said Nicki, who performed “Flawless (Remix)” with Queen Bey on Friday and Saturday. “It was the last bit of shows for Beyoncé and Jay Z, so I was very honored to be a part of it.”

It was a full circle moment for Nicki, who grew up admiring the iconic couple. “To me they represent drive and passion, and they represent everything that I would like to be in terms of being an artist and a businesswoman at the same time.”

Her third album, The Pinkprint, was inspired by Jay Z’s The Blueprint.

“It really takes you on a journey. The album is very emotional, it’s very real,” said Nicki. “I feel the production is really, really great. I think people are gonna like the beats on the album a lot, but it’s just a truthful story. It covers all different bases in my life, as well as genres.”

She wouldn’t reveal all her collaborators, but did say that she has an “amazing Young Money collaboration” on the album.

The Pinkprint will be released on November 24.
