Nicki Minaj Preps to Drop New Single ‘Move Ya Hips’

After creating quite the buzz with news of her pregnancy, Nicki Minaj has yet another reason to stay under the spotlight: a new single. The young rapper recently confirmed that she’s on the verge of releasing a collaboration with A$AP Ferg. 

Strangely enough, neither stars kickstarted the conversation about this single until A$AP Rocky tweeted out, “SUMBODY TELL @ASAPferg 2 DROP DAT SHIT WIT HIM N NICKI ASAP.” This left the collaborators with no choice but to confirm the news, now that the cat was out of the bag.  “Flacko, I heard it was coming Thursday but I could be wrong,” Nicki Minaj responded before Ferg acknowledged the track’s July 30 release date.

This year, Nicki Minaj has been on quite the winning streak when it comes to collaborations. Her remixed version of Doja Cat’s ‘Say So‘ earned the rapper her first No. 1 spot on the Billboard 100. But did she rest back on her laurels after scoring that win? No, sir. She went on to put out yet another unapologetic banger with Tekashi 6ix9ine, titled, ‘Trollz‘. And the No. 1 spot welcomed Nicki home with this very tune as well. So, perhaps we can already start predicting where her new collaboration will land, eh?

The announcement of this new single was also accompanied by its very own cover art. This featured two women, clad in dazzling bikinis, under bright blue skies.

We’re curious to see what Nicki will bring to the table with this fresh piece and thankfully, we’ll find our answer soon enough.
