Nicki Minaj Drops Her New Single “Yikes”

By on February 7, 2020

 Nicki Minaj is back with a new single called “Yikes,” her first single of 2020. The track stirred up controversy earlier this week for a lyric about late civil rights activist Rosa Parks that was perceived by many as disrespectful.

“When we move, tell ’em, “Back up,” click click, clack, duck/Hella bands, pull up, stashed up, super facts up/All you bitches Rosa Parks, uh-oh, get your ass up, uh,” she raps.

Nicki happened to tease the single on Monday (February 3), the eve on what would’ve been Parks’ 107th birthday. Although TMZ ran a story claiming Nicki chalked it up to “bad timing,” the self-proclaimed Queen of Rap quickly set the record straight. 

“Never said this,” she wrote on one of her Instagram Stories. “Had no clue anyone was mad. Don’t care. #Yikes”

She included TMZ’s headline, “NICKI MINAJ ALLEGEDLY SAYS ROSA PARKS LYRIC WAS ‘BAD TIMING;’ NOT MEANT TO OFFEND OR DISRESPECT PARKS.”
