Nicki Minaj has declined Kanye West’s request to clear her verse on the song ‘New Body.’

Originally, Nicki Minaj collaborated with Kanye West on ‘New Body,’ alongside Ty Dolla $ign for Kanye’s unreleased Yandhi album. The track was later intended for Jesus is King, featuring a new verse from Nicki to complement Kanye’s newfound faith. Unfortunately, the release never materialized and was instead leaked in 2019.

In the past year, Nicki revealed that she re-wrote her verse on the potential hit numerous times to fit with Jesus is King, but expressed disappointment that the song never saw the light of day, firmly believing it to be a potential hit..

During an interview with Rhode Island’s Hot 106 radio station, Nicki shared her perspective, saying, “So what I thought was interesting was that Kanye made me write my ‘New Body’ verse four times over in order to fit into where he was creatively and spiritually in his life, right, only then do I go on the internet a few months later to see him on Drink Champs, rolling a blunt and smoking or whatever he was doing.”

Continuing her narrative, she expressed, “I missed it by a year, I guess. Had ‘New Body’ been out when he was not in his gospel era, then it would’ve seen the light of day. But, it didn’t, so it wasn’t meant to be. Everybody knows that was the hit that got away.”

Fast-forward to the present, Kanye shared a screenshot on social media, indicating that he had texted Nicki Minaj, requesting her approval to use the record for his upcoming collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign, titled Vultures. However, Nicki, during an Instagram Live, firmly stated that she would not be granting clearance, stating that the “train has left the station.”

“Now regarding Kanye, chile, that train has left the station,” she said. “Okay, no disrespect in anyway. I just put out a brand-new album. Why would I put out a song that’s been out for three years? C’mon guys.”

After releasing singles like “Hiss,” “Cobra,” and “BOA,” Megan Thee Stallion has announced the title of her forthcoming album. Titled MEGAN, the project is scheduled to drop on June 28.

MEGAN will be Thee Stallion’s third album, following her sophomore project, Traumazine.

“We don’t just stop at the snake,” she told L’Officiel. “This is just what everybody sees right now. Renewal, rebirth: that is the whole concept of this album,” she continued. “We started with the snake because, first of all, I love snakes, but I feel like snakes are so misunderstood, especially in Western culture. Snakes represent rebirth, spirituality.”

Megan Thee Stallion is currently embarking on her Hot Girl Summer Tour with GloRilla.
