 Nicki Minaj has finally resurfaced with two new singles — “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li.” After teasing fans with a handful of cryptic tweets, Minaj revealed new music was on its way earlier this week, causing an uproar on social media.


Black Barbie hit the Beats 1 Radio studios on Thursday (April 12) to discuss her return with Zane Lowe. During the interview, Minaj talked about why she disappeared from social media for the past few months.

“I needed to focus on my album,” she told Lowe. “This is the best album in my life I’ve ever ever created. I needed to focus and I wanted to write something meaningful to me that would inspire and captivate my audience. More importantly, I wanted to have fun again without giving a shit. I didn’t want to see anything. I wasn’t only not posting. I also took all social media off my phone. It was the most genius decision I ever made. It gave me peace and put my focus back on what it needed to be on — the music. ”

Minaj also talked about how it’s necessary to “deactivate from the matrix.”

“I was like, ‘Why am I including this information in my spirit,” she said. “I don’t need to know what people are saying about me … music has become much more than music. It’s become a lot of shenanigans. I can rap. At the end of the day, I can rap. I don’t know about anybody else but I rap. That’s what I do.”

Later in the conversation, she touched on her tumultuous relationship with Drake (who she called the “Golden Boy”).

“Drake is always mad at me,” she said. “We’re like an old married couple. It’s so stupid. But you know what, on the real, Drake also has given me some of the best advice of my career. He’s given me some great advice. He’s very smart. You can’t take that away from him. Also, even when there were things happening, even when I couldn’t speak to him, I think he felt the love I will always have for him.”

She then talked about ex Meek Mill and his current situation.

“I don’t want to talk about legal things but I will say, every now and then … I won’t go there. I will save some of those things for my album. What I will say now is the judge in question did everything I asked of her. I can’t badmouth her because I met her personally. I know what she said to us. He knows. I wouldn’t wish jail on anybody. ”
