The Barbs have gained some understanding of Nicki Minaj’s inner thoughts, particularly with regard to how she approaches her creative process in the studio.
In an interview with Vogue, she disclosed that, in the process of making her new album Pink Friday 2, she turned back to her musical roots.
Minaj said, “When I look back at a lot of my music, I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, where was the me in it?’ So for this album, I went back to the old game plan.”
She continued, “The idea that saying something like that [referring to the lyric, ‘I’m fighting for the girls who never thought they could win,’ from ‘I’’m The Best’ on Pink Friday 2] could give hope to people — that optimistic outlook is something I think I got away from.”
Do you think Nicki Minaj will be taking shots on this album? Who do you think she will diss on her new project?
