Nicki Minaj fronts a cadre of heavy hitters including Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown on “Only,” the latest track to surface from her upcoming third LP, The Pinkprint, which is now streaming courtesy of iHeartRadio.
Produced by pop heavyweight Dr. Luke, as well as Cirkut and J Mike, “Only” opens with Minaj dispelling rumors about the extent of her relationships with Wayne and Drake.
Nicki Minaj has previously been linked with label mate Drake and label boss Lil Wayne, who founded Young Money Entertainment.
But Nicki Minaj sets the record straight in her new single, Only.
The 31-year-old rapper denies having ever hooked up with either of the rappers in the track released on Tuesday, which also features Chris Brown.
Lil Wayne, 32, and Drake, 28, both subsequently deny having ever slept with the Anaconda hitmaker.
Nicki begins with: ‘Yo, I never f***ed Wayne, I never f***ed Drake/ On my life, man, f***’s sake.’
After her verse, Chris, 25, sings the chorus, which beseeches everyone to ‘raise every bottle and cup in the sky/ Sparks in the air like the fourth of July/ Nothing but bad b****es in here tonight.’
Drake then chimes in, making clear he’s never slept with Nicki… but would certainly like to.
He raps: ‘I never f***ed Nicki cause she got a man/ But when that’s over then I’m first in line.’
Drake then describes a time he felt particularly tempted, while admiring Nicki’s assets.
He raps: ‘And the other day in her Maybach/ I thought god damn, this is the perfect time/ We had just come from that video/ You know LA traffic, how the city slow.
‘She was sitting down on that big butt/ But I was still staring at the t*****s though.’
