In the past Nicki Minaj has always called on Drake for a feature on her albums, with the 6 God appearing on both The Pinkprint & Pink Friday, but the same couldn’t be said this time around for Queen. For some reason, Drake didn’t make the album cut this time, which left fans a little bummed, but now we know why.
In a new interview on The Whoollywood Shuffle on Eminem‘s Shade 45 SiriusXM, Nicki revealed that her and Drake were indeed working on something, but she would’ve have needed to push back her album for it.
“Drake and I were working on something, but I didn’t want to change the date of the album,” she said. “So about two days before I had to turn it in, he and I had been going back and forth. And then even up until, I would say, within 12 hours of having to turn in my album, we were going back and forth.”
Minaj also added that Drake was also busy gearing up for his upcoming Aubrey and the Three Migos tour, saying…“He had come to my studio, we found something that we really, really loved. But he was also going through that process of getting stuff right for his tour, and I had to understand that,” she said. “As an artist, I always try to put myself in the artist’s shoes, and not try to be selfish.”
