Nicki is on fire right now! The rapper has whipped fans into a frenzy with her booty-baring cover art and sexy teaser video for her new single ‘Anaconda.’ But no one is a bigger supporter of Nicki’s new work than her close friend Drake! He even visited her in the studio to tell her how proud he was of her — so sweet!
Nicki Minaj and Drake go way back, both personally and professionally, and they’ve always been huge fans of each other’s work. So it’s no surprise that Drake showed his support for Nicki by stopping by her studio to listen to her new beats. It sounds like he liked what he heard — do YOU think these two should team up for a steamy collaboration?

“Sonically, I think the album sounds so amazing,” she says. “And there are so many surprises on the album. I had Drake come by the studio the other day and he was like, ‘Omg, you’re talking about new stuff, I’m so proud of you.’ And that’s what I’m most excited about.”
We are so pumped to hear more of Nicki’s new sound, and we love that Drake is her #1 fan! It sounds like we have a lot to look forward to.
“I’m speaking about new things on this album,” Nicki reveals. “I’m excited I’m not allowing anyone else to define what the album is going to be. I’m comfortable, it’s not going to be rushed, I’m taking my time. But overall the music just sounds really, really great. There’s no substitute for that.”

Drake and Nicki seem closer than ever these days, and after seeing her jump into his arms onstage at Hot 97 Summer Jam on June 1, and hearing about how much he “adores her,” we can tell that these two have some major chemistry. Perhaps they should put it to good use by recording a hot new track together!
